Enter Bios menu at start up hold F10 some computers differ and you may have to hold F9 or F2.
Once you reach the Bios menu it will give the option for restoring the operating system.

How to erase data to factory system default on emachine t3504 i t says to hit start then click all programs then click emachine but that heading isnt on list


If your computer has a recovery partition on the hard drive to as follows:
  1. Restart the computer
  2. When the eMachines logo appears on the screen, press the Alt and F10 keys repeatedly.
  3. If you are prompted with a Microsoft Windows boot screen, press the Enter key.
  4. After the system recovery application has loaded, follow the prompts to reinstall the Operating System.
If your model does not have a recovery partition then you were given the option to make your own recovery CD's. Unfortunately if you did not do so then you will need to contact eMachines to see if they will sell you recovery CD's. I used to sell these models and as I recall they did not come stock with a restore CD.

Hi there , how do i completly reset my Acer Aspire E380 desktop computer to factory settings again . i have backed up everything i need and i just want to start again completely and wipe it all. any...


Hi.

With that desktop computer being new it should have a hidden recovery partition on the hard drive that allows you to perform a factory restore which will take it to how it was when you took it out the box.

To access the recovery partition on your Acer computer for recovery, follow the steps listed below.

1. Power on the computer
2. At the white ACER BIOS screen, hold the Alt key and press the F10 key simultaneously to start Acer eRecovery.
3. Once eRecovery has loaded, click Restore to Factory Default Settings
4. Click OK to continue
5. From here, the eRecovery process will update all the data on the C: drive and restore a fully functional factory image which should take approximately 10 minutes.
6. Once eRecovery has run, press OK to reboot the computer.



Hope this helps!!!




Regards.

Want to reset to factory... i have an hp pavilion 7920


Most manufacturer's reserve a small partition on the stock hard drive for returning the PC to factory state. When booting the PC, an option should show "repair your computer" or something along those lines. Try pushing either F12 or F8 when booting to bring up this menu.

Hi how are you? i have a question how do i master reset my computer


What brand and model of computer do you have. You should be able to see something about system restore in the manual which will be in the CD or the web site of the manufacturer. If you have a Windows CD or Mac Operating System CD, you can boot with it and choose repair or recovery by pressing the R key. If no CD then there might be a hidden partition on your comoputer which you can access for factory default reset by holding down a key when booting.

Need to do a factory reset but have no disc on a zoostorm7910 runing vista home basic also forgoten password



Every manufacture has or uses different Function Key combinations to do a Factory Default Recovery. Also if it didn't come with disks there is normally a program in the menus to create your own set of recovery CDs. This must be done before you ever put anything on the recovery partition d: , if you used d: for anything you need to remove what you put there or the recovery will not function.

How do you Reboot a computer back to factory setting


Instructions Things You'll Need:
  • Factory Settings CD
    How To Use the Restore Factory Setting CD
  1. Step 1 Make sure to transfer all of the files you want to keep to a USB memory stick or burn to a CD.
  2. Step 2 Put the "Restore Factory Setting CD" into the CD drive. This CD was packaged with your computer.
  3. Step 3 Confirm you want to restore the factory settings. The computer will begin restoring all settings. Don't disturb your computer, as this process can take several hours. .
  4. Step 4 Reboot the computer to complete the process.
  5. How to Reboot Using the Computer Start-Up
  6. Step 1 Turn on your computer. Right away there will be a black screen. You can restore factory settings without a CD, too. This will reset your BIOS.
  7. Step 2 Press "F1" when the black screen appears to enter the setup configuration mode. You will be presented with a menu.
  8. Step 3 Select "Restore Factory Defaults." That's it. Your computer will do all the work for you. Like the CD, this process may take several hours.

Want to reset to Factory Default


Hi,

with HP the recovery console activation should just be F11 without the CTRL.

If your recovery partition does not work, or is corrupt/missing then your best bet is to either order the recovery discs or take it to a local tech that may have access to OEM discs that can be used with the license key on the machine to reinstall the operating system.

How do i reset my mt2700 back to factory settings witout recovery disc


If yous system did not come with a recovery disk, then it is possible there is a recovery image of windows residing on the D:\ drive partition of your hard drive. If this is the case, when you boot up the computer and it's on the black screen, you should be given an option something like "Press F10 for Setup" . If you press F10 you will have options on how to recover the PC to factory defaults.

Please rate in case the solution was of help to you. Let me know if it resolved or not.

Thanks
