Insert the cd marked #1 into the cd-rom. Restart the computer and wait for a minute. See if a message informs you that it is loading a restore program off of the cd. If not you need to tell the computer to boot to the cd in BIOS. Restart the computer again, at the Emachines splash screen push the 'Delete' or 'F2", it might be both depending on the model. You should now see a basic prompt to edit the machine boot structure. Please let us know what your experiencing.

Go into the Bios and set it to boot from disk, restart and it will walk u through, as long as it's xp or vista. Once it loads it will give you the option to repair, and at that point it will ask for the restore disks

I need to reset my toshiba satelite A215-S4817 to factory default


toshiba satelite A215-S4817
This is a laptop not a desktop !!
Restoring factory default settings on your computer can be done within a couple of hours, without any need for the recovery discs.
First, you need to back up any data and information that you want to keep, such as documents, pictures, and downloaded email, since everything will be erased from your hard drive after restoring the factory settings on your computer.
If you haven't restored factory settings on your machine before, do not worry.
With proper instruction, you can have your computer back to its original state within a few hours at most.

Restart your computer and proceed to Step 2 before Windows begins to load after reboot.
If you are restoring a Toshiba model, hold down the "0" (zero) key as you turn off the machine, then skip to step three.
2
Access your computer's "PC Recovery" feature by entering the correct button(s) for your machine.
This button varies, depending on the make of your machine.
HP and Dell users will hit the "F11" key, whereas Acer and Sony users will enter "F10."
If you own a Samsung model, use "F4."
3
Select "Destructive Recovery," or "Restore Original Factory Image," from the list of options that appear on the next screen, then click "Continue."
A destructive recovery will erase everything on your machine and reinstall the operating system.
4
Wait as the factory settings are restored on your computer.
Windows will require you to make date, time, and language settings on the next set of screens to follow after your machine restarts.
This process can take anywhere from a half-hour up to 2 hours to complete.

Restore back to factory settings


If you don't mind loosing everything on the hard drive, restoring the system is fairly easy.
Locate your disks that came with the computer. In there, you should find a disk either for Vista Home or a restoration disk. Place this in the drive and reboot the computer. You may have to press a key like F8, F10, etc, during the very first startup screen to boot to the disk.

You should be able to follow on screen instructions from there.

How resstore my acer aspire to factory settings?


There should have been a recovery disk created or included when you bought a laptop. Insert disk if you have it and restart your computer with the recovery disk in the CD drive. Make sure all your documents and personal data are backed up. When the computer restarts it should start restoring your computer to the factory default. There will be a wizard to guide you through the process. If there is not a disk,then follow this steps:
1.Save any files or folders on your Acer Aspire One with flash drives. Drag and drop files onto the icon of your flash drive.
2.Go to "Start" > "Restart" to reboot your netbook.
3.Hold down "Alt" and "F10" when you see the Acer logo on the screen. The recovery menu will load.
4.Hit "Enter" and then "Next" to see your recovery options. Choose "Factory Restore" to set your netbook back to factory settings. Follow the instructions on the screen.
5.Choose your time zone and language when the customization menu appears. Reboot the netbook when you are prompted.
6.Restore your saved files from the flash drive.

hope this helps,Goodluck..

I want to take my acer aspire back to the factory setting but dont have a cd how do i do it


Acer are cheap and they don't provide you with a factory restore disk. You need to make this factory disk yourself. I know how to do this, but it is to much for me to type and here is a really really good reference site for you to visit to get instruction to make your own factory restore disk. After making that restore disc,  pop the disk into your laptop and turn of your laptop and restart and the factory restore program should start, if it should not start then go into your bios menu and have it boot from your Dvd-Rom and save, after full restoration, make sure you turn your boot priority back to where your Os is being installed, exm hard drive.

I have a Compaq Presario SR1610NX Desktop PC and I am having problems restoring it back to original factory settings. Can I please get some help on how to get it back to factory settings.


Back to factory settings requires the Restoration Disk. (CD disk)

Turn the computer on, install the Restoration Disk in your optical drive, (Either one), and wait for the disk to boot up.

Once you come to the question of, "What do you wish to do; Non-Destructive Restoration, or Destructive Restoration, choose Destructive Restoration.

(Non-Destructive Restoration is Repair.
Destructive Restoration is a Full Installation )

After you click on your choice follow the instructions.
Takes an average of 35 to 45 minutes.

Don't have the Restoration Disk?
You can obtain it from HP Support. (HP bought out Compaq)
The disk/s are free. The shipping and handling is not.

$17 for a 5 to 7 day ship, $24 for a 2 to 3 day ship.

In the USA the phone number to call them is toll free.
(Big deal if you have unlimited service, or a cell phone, huh?
I just included this info anyway)

1-800-474-6836
24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
(I called this number to verify it's a working number, and the procedure is still the same, about 2 months ago. It's a working number. No charges are involved)

http://welcome.hp.com/country/us/en/contact/phone_assist.html

For HP Support phone numbers not in the USA,

http://welcome.hp.com/country/us/en/wwcontact_us.html

You will need your Serial Number, (S/N), to give to the nice representative on the phone.
This is either on the back of your computer tower, or up on the side of the tower.
It's in the white Service Tag.

If you have questions please post in a Comment.
Would appreciate hearing how this came out.

Regards,

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.

Would like to set it back tofactory settings


start up the computer and in the bio's there should be an option to press a key like F9 or something to open the repair console...from this menu choose re-set to factory settings...there should be a backup partition on acer hard drives to restore it back...

if this dosn't work bang in an OS cd - boot it up from the bios and follow the on screen instructions - drivers that are not installed will be avalible from acer's website - they are quite good for downloading them
