SOURCE: i want to restore my laptop to factory settings

Hello !

There are other options, such as choosing System Restore via Programs - Accessories - System Tools .. which would take your laptop to an earlier date, which could resolve problems.

But, if you want to know how a Factory Restore is done for your system (it's a long process), here it is:

1. Upon boot, select F8 until the menu
"Advanced Boot Options" appears.
2. Choose "Repair your Computer" (use Up/Down keys if necessary to find) and hit Enter.
3. Once Windows has loaded a few files, "System Recovery Options" will appear.
4. Under "Select a language" and "Select a keyboard layout:" specify the language and keyboard layout. As a rule, the language will be automatically recognized by
the system and is marked in grey.
5.Click on "Next".
6. Under "User name:" enter the user name and the "Password". The user name will also be available in the selection menu and can be called up by clicking on the
black triangle. If you have not assigned a password for the user selected, leave the "Password" field empty. Then click on "OK".
7. In the following "System Recovery Options" menu, select the option "Fujitsu Siemens Computers Recovery" with the sub-item "Easy backup and recovery
of your system".
8. In the next menu, select "Restore the as-delivered status" and click on "Next".
9. In the menu "Restore factory default settings", choose the option "From hard disk (recommended)" from "Select source" and confirm with "Next".
10. The next message informs you that all data could be lost. Once you have confirmed this message, your system is restored.
On completion of the restoration process, a confirmation message will be displayed.
11. Select "Exit" to close the process.
12. In the following "System Recovery Options" menu, select "Restart".
13. After the restart, you must make some adjustments. To do this, follow the onscreen instructions.

Good luck.

SOURCE: Cant restore factory settings Acer Aspire One A110-Ab 8.9" 1.6 GH

Unlike other laptops, Acer laptops integrate a computer management utility called 'Acer eRecovery Management' to create backup of hard drive data, create restore point, reinstall applications & drivers, and reset Acer laptop to factory setting.

Step 1: Before starting your Acer laptop, ensure that there is no external storage device attached to it. Now start your laptop.

Step 2: Press 'Alt + F10' when the laptop starts booting, and wait for a moment while Windows loads the reset files.

Step 3: When 'Acer eRecovery Management' window appears, select 'Restore System from factory default' and click 'Next' to continue.

Step 4: Again click 'Next' to reset your Acer laptop. This process will erase all data from your hard disk and reset your Acer laptop to original factory settings.

Step 5: Click 'OK' in the notification window to begin the the resetting operation. Now wait while your Acer laptop is reset to factory settings.

Tips: You can also create a backup copy of your laptop data before factory reset. Simply click 'Backup' in 'Acer eRecovery Management' window.

If you have any other issue with your Acer laptop/desktop/Notebook, feel free to get expert technical assistance at

How can I resset my iCloud? I put a wrong email so now it won't verify my account


You can always restore it to brand new.
You need a computer with iTunes and the charghing usb cable.
Before restoring make sure that the Find my iPhone app is off, otherwise after restoring it will give you the very same wrong email.
Once that is off, connect the ipad to the computer and click restore.
Once restore is complete, at very end you will be prompt with 2 questions:
1. Set iPad as brand new
2. Restore from (your name) back up.

At this iem you can choose either one, because Find my iPhone is off. And now you can change the email address.
It is your best option since it is way too difficult without restoring it.

Change my email address


If you use an Outlook, then you can create a new email address and chose to deliver it to the new Outlook file. It will create a new Outlook file and new Outlook folder. Also, do not forget to change the default email address (click on the email address and click the set as default). If you use Outlook 2013, then it is accessible by clicking the "File" in the menu, and click Account Settings.

How do you delete old email 'address'es in my computer file


Which email account ?

Erase Email Addresses in My Computer


Email addresses can be stored on a computer if you use email software, such as Microsoft Office Outlook and Yahoo Messenger Beta.


Deleting email addresses manually from these programs does not actually completely erase them from your computer.


To erase email addresses permanently, meaning that a hard drive recovery program will not be able to restore them if it is used, requires a process called formatting, which completely erases the information on a hard drive.


Click on the shortcut "My Computer," which you can locate on your desktop.


Right click "Local Disk (C:)" and select the "Format" option.


Change the "Allocation Size Unit" to "Default Allocation Size."


Click the "Start" button.

The email addresses, as well as the rest of the files on the hard drive, will now be erased.


Delete a Live Mail Email Address


Windows Live Mail is a part of the Windows Live suite of productivity and entertainment programs, and it is intended to be the new free email client for Windows beginning with Windows 7.


After trying Windows Live Mail, you may decide that you have added too many email addresses and that you would prefer to use the email client to check only one address.


Remove an email address from Windows Live Mail to reduce the clutter in your email inbox.
Launch Windows Live Mail, and browse to the "Tools" menu at the top of the screen.


Click "Accounts."

Click the email account that you would like to delete.


Click the "Remove" button.

A message will appear to remind you that any messages belonging to the email account that are not backed up in another location will be deleted permanently.


Click "OK" to confirm.

The account will be deleted immediately.


Click "Close" to return to Windows Live Mail.


Delete Hotmail Adresses


Log in to your hotmail account and click "Help."


Search for "Cancel Account" and select "Why are all my email messages gone?"

Expand the option that says "Close a free Hotmail account" and click "Windows Live Hotmail close account."


Click "Close Account" on the page that opens.


If you do not sign in to your account for 365 days, your account will also be deleted.





Hope this helps.

Had new windows xp installed, now cant get my old email addess back.


When you installed Windows XP you wipe out all your old data and start afresh all over again.
You should have exported your email address book and saved it to an external storage device and then installed Windows and your email program. Then import your address book into your email program to restore your address book.

    How to change my email ID name i.e. bulu_rrp@yahoo.co.in change to subha@yahoo.co.in


    You can try asking yahoo support but they dont usually action these requests. Best thing to do is try firstly creating an alias, check in mail settings, it may allow you to add a mail alias of your choosing so your email address will stay the same but you also have the other email address you wanted and the mail comes into the same box.
