Changed bios to set to factory reset with recovery disks

??Why were you messing with the bios?? Has absolutely Nothing to do with a restore!!! for a restore disc set. 2-Most important part, restore is useless without the correct bios. U R N over your head, but for bios, flasher & u need a boot disc, hope it has a floppy, otherwise you have to make an iso boot disc with the correct bios & flasher on it(preferrably an cd-rw so it can retrieve bad bips on) good luck...u gonna need it.

I was wondering how to reboot it to factory settings (how i first bought it) everytime i try, it comes up with system restore and only restores when i last backed it up.

In order to restore your system back to totally factory settings you have to have the CD that came with your computer. Then you will have to make sure that you are booting from the DVD or CD-ROM as the first boot and the second is HD. Not sure as to what F button you need to actuate during the boot up to get to BIOS it may be F2 or F12 anyway when you get to the BIOS select boot and choose CD or DVD-ROM as the first boot then either F10 and exit or exit. Follow on screen instructions in the BIOS.

Now place your recovery CD or DVD in the drive and restart the laptop. Select restore complete system when the option from the CD restore disc comes up. It will format and restore your original system files. You do have to have the original restore disc for your model and serial for your lap top since you did not mention what brand your laptop is just go to the support or downloads or on their site for your computer to be able to purchase one. That is the only way you can restore it back to its original state when you purchased it. Thanks for using FixYa! John

I need to restore my acer 5610z laptop back to factory settings

To restore my computer to its original settings without

recovery CDs.

Note: If your system is the multilingual version, the operating

system and language you choose when you first turn on the

system will be the only option for future recovery operations.

This recovery process helps you restore the C: drive with the original software

content that is installed when you purchase your notebook. Follow the steps

below to rebuild your C: drive. (Your C: drive will be reformatted and all data

will be erased.) It is important to back up all data files before using this option.

Before performing a restore operation, please check the BIOS settings.

1 Check to see if Acer disk-to-disk recovery is enabled or not.

2 Make sure the D2D Recovery setting in Main is Enabled.

3 Exit the BIOS utility and save changes. The system will reboot.

Note: To activate the BIOS utility, press during POST.



To start the recovery process:

1 Restart the system.

2 While the Acer logo is showing, press + at the same time to

enter the recovery process.

3 Refer to the onscreen instructions to perform system recovery.

Important! This feature occupies 3 to 4 GB in a hidden partition
on your hard disk

Lenovo g530 4151 - restore bios from USB or CD ?

Hi, What I would best sugget you if you this kind of issue is to restore your system to its original settings, just look for the small button just beside the power button on your keyboard, it has an arching arrow logo, that key is what we called One Key Recovery that would restore your system to its original factory settings. but just a hint it would also delete everything on your computer so consider bucking up every important files taht you have before proceeding with the recovery. also make sure that the ac adapter is plugin before you press the one key recovery button then it will give the options to choose from, just choose one key recovey then proceed with the factory default recovery, thats it it would now proceed with the system factory default restoration. If you still need some clarifications regarding this issue you could also call the tech support hotline of lenovo

How do i install the computer back to original factory settings

If you are talking about the BIOS settings.
Reboot the machine and hit the F2 key or Delete key.
Which ever the machine requires to start up the Motherboard bios screen.

There should be a setting that states:
Reset to default factory settings.
Select this, save and restart. Viola your factory settings have been restored.

Usually the machine came with a restore CD.
Be careful with this one and make certain this is the only course of action. Make sure the bios is set to boot from the CD FIRST before it boots to the hard drive. Follow the CD's instructions to restore the factory default setup. You will Loose EVERYTHING so be sure.

Good luck!

I got a Dell optiplex gx260 is not booting from the bios.its comming an error(there's no booting device activated). so how can i update the bios ..? plzzz help meeeeee

Did you try to boot from the repair CD?
Or did you try to restore Computer to it's original conditions?
Except for the monitor, keyboard, and mouse, remove all external peripherals including:
  • Scanner
  • Printer
  • Modem or Network cables
  • Personal Digital Assistant (PDA)
  • USB flash drive or other external Hard Drive
  • Any other external devices (e.g., USB-attached devices)
  • Remove the computer from the docking station, if you are using one

  • 1. Turn on Computer and as the computer starts press <F8> on the keybord until the advanced Boot Option menu appears (you have to do this before the windows logo comes up) If you don't see advanced Boot option menu, reset PC and repeat <F8> till you get it.
    Enter, select you language and log on as user with administrator rights. Select Dell Factory restore and then reformat and restore system software to factory conditions.
    This action will erase all data on drive C:\
    Normally the first action would be to backup the data.
    If it's a new one with warranty I would contact Dell support for assistency.
