Re: I want to restore factory settings on my laptop

You could try a system restore to the day before the changes, go to accesories,system tools, system restore. The programmes should be there again but may not work correctly it's a fingers crossed job. The only other way to restore is if you have a restore partition on your hardrive or a restore disc, but normally there would be a programme built in to restore the notebook to factory settings.

Restore Acer aspire laptops to English factory settings

If you click onto the "Start" and then go into Programmes, you should see at the top "Acer" click on this, and you can reset the Net-book to it`s original factory settings, or choose the other options. This is the manufactures settings, where it was made. Not quite sure what you mean by English factory settings? Good luck

I'm trying to restore my Dell Inspiron 5160 to the factory settings

If the restore partition is still there, press F8 just before boot and select restore. You will lose all data and programmes will need to be reinstalled.

Factory restore

1. Turn on or reboot your system. When the Fujitsu logo appears, press the [F12] key.

2. From the Boot Menu, that appears, check whether the <Recovery and Utility> option is present.
If it is not present, it means that the utility must be used from the disc.
Proceed to "Running Recovery and Utility from the Bootable Disc" , if <Recovery and Utility> is unavailable.

How do i reformat my toshiba laptop with windows 7 preinstalled

Within drive "D" there is a restore section. Start the laptop and as it is booting, press F8, that will open a menu allowing the startup of a restore programme. This will return your laptop to the factory setting.
Hope this helps.

Acer 5535 how to restore back to factory settings


Thank you for your query

Restoring a laptop back to its factory settings can be done in one of 2 ways

1) Some manufacturers provide the recovery CD/DVD, simply put this disc in and restart the PC, the DVD/CD should boot and then you can follow the onscreen instructions

2) Some manufacturers provide hard drive based recovery, this mean rather than provide a CD/DVD,manufactueres put the recovery on a section of the hard drive. To use this method you click on start>Programs then find the name of the manufacturers folder. In this folder there will be a programme titled system recovery, factory settings. Click on this and follow through on the instructions

How do i restore my lasptop to the factory settings

To restore your acer to its factory installation status (formats C: and removes all data) press ALT and F10 repeatedly on first boot. This should take you to the acer restore program which is partioned onto the hard drive.
Alternatively use the acer e recovery program to create a set of boot disks which will allow the same operation.

Ibm restore to factory setting

You have not explained what is wrong with your computer.
Is the laptop working, does it boot up into Windows?
What are you trying to restore?
Are you trying to get into a previous Restore Point?
The Access button takes you into the BIOS, you can change the BIOS settings back to the Default settings (ie the factory default settings).
It is difficult to offer a solution without knowing the exact nature of the problem.
