Trying to reset a PCto factory defaults

Hiya,
I have a Phillips MT2400 and am trying to reset it to factory defaults. The recovery partition is visable through Disk manager, but i have no access to it. With some other machines you press F10 or F11 if you want to reset the PC, but that doesnt work. How do i reset this PC?

I need BIOS reboot password for Asus x552e laptop...complete hard reset with no disks as laptop was purchased from a pawn shop. Please help


When you say "BIOS Reboot Password", are you trying to say that you are unable to get to the Operating System because there is a BIOS password required that you don't have, OR are you able to boot the system, but want to return it to the factory defaults since it was previously owned? In the first case, you have a problem. Without the BIOS password, you may not be able to access the system at all. This should have been checked out at the pawn shop before the purchase - I mean who wants to own a brick? If you CAN boot up, but are trying to access the recovery partition to restore the unit to factory-new load condition, then you need the manual. You can find the manual in your language at the link provided below.

Look at the back of chapter five for "reset" procedure. You will see that pressing the F9 key during the POST time will send you to a reset screen that will let you return the PC to factory defaults. This is dependent upon, however, the recovery partition to be still intact and working. Best of luck to you.

On older Thinkpads there was an issue while restoring factory recovery from CD-ROM, if there were more partitions on the harddisk, than the factory default. Additional partitions had to be deleted befor factory recovery from CD.

You need to get a Recovery CD for your model laptop from Dell. Boot up with this Recovery CD and follow the instructions.
You can get this Recovery CD from the Dell WEB site.
To get the correct model Recovery CD use the Service Tag number, it is on the label that is attached to the bottom of the laptop.

I want to recover my computer to factory settings


As soon as you press the power button on your notebook, Keep tapping F8 repeatedly. Another screen should pop up with a list of commands (safe mode / start up repair etc) Near the bottom of the list you should see an option to ReInstall windows / Reset to factory Default. Select which one you prefer and follow the simple instructions.

Hope this helps and please rate thanks.

Hello, i am trying to reset my computer to its original factory settings. I do not have the restore disk.. I have a Acer Aspire 5315.


Hi.

If you never tampered with your partitions you should still have a recovery partition hidden in your hard drive.

Restart your computer and press ALT F10 many times until you get the Acer recovery page. Follow the steps and it should be easy to get back to the factory defaults.

Hope it helps!

Computer crash. Have No recovery disk.


Hi jgar2141,

If you are trying to restore the Computer to the factory settings, it is not required to have the Recovery Discs as you can use the Recovery Partition which is present in the hidden partition of the Hard Drive. To access the Recovery Partition, restart the Computer, press and hold the F10 Key for 7 to 10 seconds. This will boot the Computer to the Edit Boot Options screen. There, please press the Enter Key.This will launch the VAIO Recovery Center. In the VAIO Recovery Center window, you can select the "Restore C: Drive" option to restore the Computer to the factory settings. (Selecting the "Restore C: Drive" option will erase all the Data in the Computer and restore to the factory defaults)

After selecting the Restore C: Drive, please follow the simple onscreen instructions to proceed with the System Recovery. The System Recovery process using the VAIO Recovery Center should fix all the Software issues in the Computer and restore the Computer to the factory defaults.

Good Luck!

Please post back if you have any questions or require any further assistance.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Trying to reset


Hi, it seems that the recovery partition is not working.You may have to get the Recovery CD's to do the Factory Recovery.If you have not created the Recovery CD's from the Recovery manager software, you can purchase it from the Acer website.

The Alternate method for starting the Recovery on startup is using the combination of ALT+F10 ( some models its ALTgr ) on startup.Press and Hold down the ALT( Left jand of space ) and at the same time keep on tapping the F10 key till you get the message " Windows is loading files".Just follow the On screen Instructions to start the Recovery.

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.
