3. "Do the followin; this may take some timing."

it may differ on your computer, once you see this on the screen!

Quickly press, tap the[DEL]key, located at the top [Right]

next to the Scroll Lock, and END keys."


4. "Remember as I said before it may take some timing.

You will know if you done it correctly, when you see the:

Solve for the factorial of a given number. The factorial of n is 1*2*3


If you're a programmer and you wanted to solve this for any number N, I'd do it recursively.Maybe something like this (in C):

#include
#include

int factorial(int n){
if(n == 1){
return 1;
} else if(n == 0){
return 0;
} else {
return n * factorial(n-1);
}
}

int main(int argc, char** argv) {

int n = 0;

printf("Enter a number:\n");
scanf("%d", &n);

int fact_Of_N = factorial(n);

printf("\n%d factorial = %d\n", n, fact_Of_N);

return (EXIT_SUCCESS);
}

I have a samsung model sgh-a877 and the touch screen isn't working right. How can I do a factory reset?


To reset the handset, to the factory default settings, follow the steps below:
  1. From the standby screen, press Menu
  2. Press Settings
  3. Press Reset Settings
  4. Press on any of the following to check their boxes:
    • All: Sound Profiles, Display & Light, Phone and Alarm settings will be returned to default values
    • Sound Profiles: Only sound profile settings will be returned to default values
    • Display and Light: Only display settings will be returned to default values
    • Phone: Only phone settings will be returned to default values
    • Alarms: Only alarm settings will be returned to default values
  5. Press Reset
  6. Enter the password default password is "0000", then press OK
  7. If prompted, Enter the password again to confirm then press OK
  8. Press Yes to Reset the handset's settings to the factory defaults
One note tho. if i'm not mistaken you will lose ALL data in the phone. if it's been unlocked you will have to unlock it again.
this is refered to as a hard reset. soft reset would be just to take the battery out for a few minutes. that way you would keep your data

How can i make factory setting for Aspire 5610 without recovery disc and/or with recovery disc


Hi,

You do not have to make factory setting, infact you can restore the computer back to factory default,to do so, follow the below steps: Turn OFF the computer, now as soon as you hit the power button, keep on holding "Alt" key & keep on tapping "F10" key, i.e Alt+F10 (try both), it will open the recovery console, select full factory restore and follow onscreen instruction. NOTE: This will erase all the datas on the computer.

Thanks and regards,
