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?

Hope this helps.

Hard reset instructions


The way to restore Gateways is to hold down the ALT Key and repeatedly hitting f10 then it should bring you to a boot sequence screen then choose the HDD and then hold down ALT and repeatedly hit f10 again.
That should promt the restore feature for gateway.
with a "Restore from factory default" option. This loads the system partition (C:) from the recovery partition (hidden). It does wipe every thing out on the C: drive to be like it was when new.
If that doesnt work the only way to do it is to boot into windows and run the eRecovery program

Can i factory reset it and windows 7 still be on there


If you do a Full Factory Recovery all your data will be lost, You will find a folder, Windows.old, that will have some data. Your machine will return to the day it came out-of-the-box and requiring you to do ALL updates and reinstall ALL software YOU installed.

I'm trying to reset my system to the factory reset setting for the Dell OptiPlex? GX620


Bios or windows? If bios, go into bios by pressing delete key at computer boot up. Then go to last tab and look for load default settings. If you are referring to your operating system. Use your recovery disk or partition and reinstall the operating system. Or you can try Control Panel\Backup and Restore Center

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.

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.

Hi, Have you tried accessing the Recovery Option pressing F10 or the R Key When Thr Machine is Booting Up?
Even though you say you've deleted the Recovery Partition, it may still be possible to recover the system to default settings.

In Step 3. It mentions that all data on the drive will be formatted anyway, so I presume you may just be able to get it up and going again, although it also mentions that some applications that were not shipped with the system will need to be re-installed, so whether this will stop you from successfully recovering the system to factory default I can't say! Worth a shot anyway :-).
