How can i reset my computer to factory settings

Generally there are a couple options.

First is going to your computer manufacturer website and looking up support information for the model/make of the computer you're trying to recover. There you'll often find instructions on how to restore your computer to factory spec.

If you still have the origional materials, older computers came with recovery disks you can put into the computer, reboot and begin the recovery process. Again, I refer you to the manufacturer's documentation on how to do this. If you've lost the media, most companies allow you to purchase new disks with a fee.

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 am trying to restore my computer, but I don't have the cd that I need to restore my system is there another way to restore the system with the cd?

What's the brand and the operating system of your computer? Usually manufacturers has a factory image restore set on the computer if your computer has that there's no need to use a CD to restore your computer. Though there are some issues that image restore is not working for some reason, if that is the case, there's no other option but to use an operating system disc to restore your computer.

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


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.

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!
