How do i reset my laptop


Place the operating system recovery CD that came with your computer into the CD or DVD drive. Restart the computer. Wait for the computer manufacturer's logo to pop up on the screen. Press the keyboard key that brings up the recovery menu, which is usually "F2," "F8," or "Ctrl" and "F11" pressed simultaneously. Select the specific language you want the operating system to use from the menu at the top of the screen. Select "Next." Choose the option labeled "PC Restore," "Repair Your Computer" or something similar. Click "Next." Select "Restore" and then click "Enter" to start the process. Click "Restart" once the process has ended to boot the restored computer to its operating system.

I lost my original backup cd,how can i get it?can you please help me?


The general method for acquiring a new system restore CD is to contact the manufacturer of the computer directly, for example, Dell, HP, or whichever the brand maker is. They can provide a CD or DVD specifically for your make and model of computer.

Many computers built within the past three years also have a System Recovery or System Restore partition. When you first press the power button, look for something mentioning a "Restore" or "Recovery" option key (Like F10 for example) as this option may exist and prevent a need for a CD.

Information about the brand and model of the computer would make this question much easier to answer.

I have an ibm that i would like bring back to factory status


hello hershyhunk to fully restore a PC to factory settings/defaults you will need to reinstall the operating system. to do this you need your recovery disks that came with your computer.
WARNING!! All of the data on your laptop's hard drive will be permanently erased when you restore it to its original settings. Before starting the restore process you may want to save any data you still need to an external drive such as a USB flash storage device.
Depending on the specific brand and model of your laptop you may need to select different options to restore the computer to its original settings. Check the manual that came with your laptop to find the specific menu options you need to select. Some computer manufacturers include an icon in the Start menu for restoring the laptop to its original settings without having to use a separate recovery disk. Double-click the icon and follow the instructions on the screen to start the restore process.
  1. Place the operating system recovery CD that came with your computer into the CD or DVD drive. Restart the computer.
  2. Wait for the computer manufacturer's logo to pop up on the screen. Press the keyboard key that brings up the recovery menu, which is usually "F2," "F8," or "Ctrl" and "F11" pressed simultaneously.
  3. Select the specific language you want the operating system to use from the menu at the top of the screen. Select "Next."
  4. Choose the option labeled "PC Restore," "Repair Your Computer" or something similar. Click "Next."
  5. Select "Restore" and then click "Enter" to start the process. Click "Restart" once the process has ended to boot the restored computer to its operating system.

Want to restore to origanal system. where can i buy a restore disk?


The manufacture of the computer would be the best option. You would need to get the drivers to run the audio, internet, cd burner etc, so I always let people know to call the computer manufacture so you can get both cd's on one phone call. Hope this helps

Need to reload my drivers


Hello

To reload your drivers you will have to reload the entire operating system and here is how to do so.

Back up all of your user files, because reloading the operating system will destroy all of your data. You can use an external hard drive, thumb drive or an online backup service to save your files.

Insert the restore CD that came with your computer, then restart your PC. The computer will automatically boot and begin the restoration. You will be asked to confirm the reformatting of your hard drive during the process. The restore CD will not only reload the operating system but all of the hardware drivers as well. (If you do not have the restore CD, contact your computer's manufacturer.)

Insert the operating system CD if you do not have access to a restore CD. Shut down the computer and restart it. The computer will boot from the CD, and when the operating system menu is displayed, you will have the option to reload the operating system files. If you take this approach, you might also need to reload the drivers for your hardware by going to each manufacturer's website and downloading a driver for each device.

You Can try to recover from HDD
You can start HDD recovery
Pressing F8 while notebook powering up
choose repair my computer
choose Toshiba Recovery
If the HDD recovery doesn’t work then you will need to order the disk or contact with your manufacturer.

Factory restore


Yes, Usually when you purchase a computer, the computer manufacturer has set a certain key or keys that you can press if you ever wish to reset your computer back to its factory settings. If your computer is still the same way now as it was when you purchased it, then pretty much all you have to do is contact your computer manufacturer, or read your paperwork/owner's manual ( this might be on a cd), or maybe even go to your manufacturer's website and search. Either one of these ways should give you the way to reset your computer. Hope this helps!
