Cases don't have "factory settings." This sounds like a problem with the motherboard configuration. Make sure to re-check all your pin connectors leading to USB, Audio, and HD. Also, you may need to remove the MB to check if there's any damage, and to be sure that you don't have a short somewhere.

Hi, When I press f8 at the start menu the restore to factory settings doesnt work, I just get a black screen, help!

F8 is for Windows boot options, not for its reinstall. Depending on what laptop you have you will have to either press F2 or ALT + F10 or (if you're using a less known model or brand) F12 or DEL.

How do i restore my c650 back to factory settings as i cant access my desktop because i changed my windows password and forgot it


If you want to use the recovery disk to reset all to Factory settings, you need to press either F10 or F11 when you start the Laptop.

Switch laptop on and start pressing F10 once every 2 seconds till you see the recovery starts. Then follow the recovery wizard.

If F10 does not work try the "F" keys usually the F8 takes you to safe mode options and F12 to the Bios setup.

Hope this helps

Hi when i satrt up my hp compaq mini 110 it wont load past the bios. it comes up with the options for F9: change boot device order, F10:BIOS setup options, F12: Network boot. if i leave it to laod past...

Check to see if any media is in you CD DRIVE, or any other drive because if BIOS is booting from the CD or other media first, it never gets to your hard drive thus never boots windows. If clear, Press F9 and enter into your BIOS setup. You will have to make sure your boot sequence/order is in order to boot first from the hard drive. If all is in order try F8 hitting it repeatedly until safe mode options appear. If this doesn't work post a reply and we'll go from there.

How to restore my laptop without a recovery disc? (acer aspire 5100)


You could try hitting the f10 key at the top of your keyboard as soon as you start the computer that should take you into factory restore to start with it looks likes its loading windows but in about a min it takes you into the option to take back to factory settings

If f10 dont work try alt\f10 or the blue fn\f10

if none of them work hit the delete key on startup and go into bios to make sure that f10 is not disabled because sometimes it is by default disabled

But be very carefull not to alter anything else in the bios or you could and probably have big problems just enable f10 0r f12 if they are disabled then hit save click yes

windows will then restart and try the f10 key again

good luck

Each computer manufacturer has a special key you have to hit WHEN YOU POWER ON the computer Here are some of the keys,
HP and Compaq desktops/towers use F10,
E Machines and Gateway PC use F11,
Toshiba laptop F12,
Sony PC F10 .
IBM and Lenovo F11
Here is the trick- power the computer off, and then power it back on and start tapping the appropriate key eg F10 until a screen pops up saying "DO YOU WANT TO DO A SYSTEM RESTORE" Once this system restore window opens, stop tapping and just follow the instructions. Some of the older computers may ask you for the restore discs so have those ready. Most newer computers do not need restore discs. The whole system restore could take 2 or 3 hours. When done, reboot your computer and it should be all new and speedy again.

If this option is not avalible to you you will need to go to start then all programs then you will need to go to accessories . In accessories click system tools then system restore.
Follow the on screen instructions.
Select a date before the problem accured. click next and allow the system to restore itself.
