Factory reset


Do not rename the backup folder created by Samsung Recovery Solution or change the directory structure in the backup. If the name or structure has changed SRS will not see your recovery point when you attempt to perform a restore.

This restores the PC to the condition it was in when the Complete Backup was made. If a Complete Backup was never made, this can still be used to restore the PC to its initial status. (Out of the Box condition)

Warning: A Complete restore erases all current files, settings, programs and other data and replaces them with the files, settings, programs and other data contained in the Complete Backup. In other words, it restores your computer to the way it was when you made the Complete Backup. Also, note that any programs installed after the Complete Backup will still need to be reinstalled.

Important:

  • If you have data that you need to save, create a Data Backup before performing a Complete Restore. With Data Backup you can save your files to an external device and then use Data Restore to load those files back onto the PC.
  • If the computer powers on, but Windows does not load, press the F4 Key at the Samsung logo when you first power on the computer; and then go to step 2.
  • If the Samsung Recovery partition has been removed from your PC, your notebook will need to be sent to the service center for reimaging.

To perform a Complete Restore, follow these steps:

  1. Open Samsung Recovery Solution 5.
  2. main_screen_cropped.jpg

  1. Once Samsung Recovery Solution 5 loads, click Restore. The Restore dialog appears.
  2. Click Complete Restore. The Restore > Complete Restore dialog appears.
  3. restore_main.jpg

  1. On the Restore > Complete Restore dialog, there is list of backups created using Complete Backup and the expected time needed to perform a restore with each backup. If no backups have been created then the Computer Initial Status backup is the only item listed. Click the backup you would like to use for this restore, and then click Next.
  2. Important: Make sure you have power connected to the PC. If power is lost during a restore, you need to start the process again from the beginning.

    select.jpg

  1. Samsung Recovery Solution 5 prompts you to restart the computer to continue. Click OK to restart the computer.
  2. Warning: If you have data on drive C that you do not want to lose, stop now and perform a Data Backup.

    restart.jpg

  1. The computer restarts and Samsung Recovery Solution 5 prompts you to click Yes to Delete all data on drive C. Click yes to proceed.
  2. A progress bar appears showing the current transfer speed, the amount of data copied, elapsed time and estimated total time to completion.
  3. After the Complete Restore is complete, Samsung Recovery Solution 5 prompts you to restart your computer. Click OK to restart.
  4. After you restart your computer, the restore process is complete.
  5. Note: You will need to perform an additional restart for Windows to apply its changes.

I WOULD LIKE TO RESTORE TO FACTORY SETTINGS TY


You will loose all data you have put on the computer. When you turn it on right at the beginning there is a black screen and there are a few f key options.
They will flash up with the option when you turned it on, before windows kicks in. Take a look at the user manual to find out for sure.
Press the correct f key before windows starts up, then go through the menus in setup (it will look all crappy and dos like) and find restore factory settings (or something like that) and click yes.
It's a great feature, and will completely kill any virus or **** problems you have had and couldn't get rid of.
Hope this helps. I would appreciate your feed back as I do this for fun not pay.

Simple test to determine if it's a hardware or software problem : try to boot in the BIOS. If you can't then it's hardware you should just return it, it's still in the warranty. If you can then Windows is totally corrupted so just reinstall it.

Yes it is. But it used together with the Windows 7 Backup and Restore Center (Control Panel - Backup and Restore). If you set up the backup setting in this option, make a backup, and create a restore disk you will be able to restore your system in the event of a problem. Please note that it will restore the system as it was on the day you made the backup.
