Go to the programs menu and look for the name of your manufacturer and click on that folder and look for the option to recover your PC. Click on the option and it will lead you how to do it. Some times you can restart the PC and click the F8 button while its rebooting and you will get a black screen with options on this subject.

SOURCE: ASUS F3J DVD drive problem

LG and Samsung both make good drives - otherwise they would probably not be in business in the competitive market they are in. However, it would not be certain which one was "good" for your laptop.

The ASUS F3J series laptops all seem to share the same optical drive characteristics.
If you have established via system diagnostics that the DVD is faulty and needs replacing, then I recommended best practice would be to replace it with the standard DVD drive replacement part from ASUS. If your warranty is still valid, then you could have it replaced it under warranty.

It is "best practice" to use an ASUS part, because, if you do not, then you may have problems:
(a) problems installing the non-standard replacement part into the laptop housing (i.e., it just won't fit in, or, even if it does then it may not fit securely or neatly into the laptop housing).

(b) problems finding the correct Windows driver for the new hardware part (i.e., when Windows auto-detects the new hardware and tries to find a driver.)

The ASUS F3J series optical drives all seem to be spec'd as either:
DVD COMBO: 8X/ 24X24X24X (max.)
DVD Super Multi: 5X/8X/4X/8X/4X/24X/10X/24X/8X

So, you might consider the alternative of getting an external USB DVD which at least matches one or both of those specs. The USB drive will come with the appropriate drivers.

Hope this helps/is of use. :-)

SOURCE: i dont know how to restore my asus x58c laptop to

Bottom line- You can't. Unlike other electrical equipment there is no magic "factory reset" button. You need at least an OS install disc and a back-up of the drivers. At one time the discs were supplied with PC's but this very rarely happens and the paperwork supplied normally advises you make your own back up discs before you get carried away, but it very rarely happens.

It may be worth looking at why you wish to restore to original, is it necessary?

Hi. Actually when you restore your system to its factory settings it will restore everything on your computer including the original operating system, but if you're saying that you have installed windows 7 on it then try going to ASUS driver support website, just type in their the model of your machine and it will ouput every software and drivers available for laptop and also different versions of operating system, So just choose the correct OS version for your laptop. Hope this Helps

(Tap slowly in 2 second intervals)

2) Press F2 again to enter BIOS Setup.
(If pressing doesn't do it, start tapping on the F2 key in 2 second intervals)

When you see the BIOS Setup Utility it will look like a chart, with a bold header going across the top.
You can No longer use your mouse.
To navigate around in the BIOS Setup Utility you have to use your keyboard.

In the bold header across the top of the BIOS Setup Utility you will see listed in order;
Main, Advanced, Security, Boot and Exit.

3) Use the Right Side Arrow key to highlight Boot.

{Not trying to be condescending. The Up, Down, Right, and Left Arrow keys, are to the left of the number pad.
Also below the Delete, End, and Page Down keys}

Once Boot is highlighted press the Enter key.

4) When in the Boot menu;
If Boot Booster is not highlighted, press the Down Arrow key to highlight it.
Now press the Enter key.


will be shown. Use the appropriate arrow key to highlight Disabled.

5) Press the F10 key. (Saves changes and reboots {Restarts} your computer)

Now to restore;

A) Restart your computer. (WinXP: Start > Turn Off Computer > Restart)

B) Start tapping in 2 second intervals on the F9 key.

C) Left-click on the check mark button to start System Recovery.

D) Follow the onscreen instructions to complete the recovery process.

ONCE DONE, and Windows is running again. Let Windows run for a few minutes.
Then shut Windows down normally.

Go through steps 1 through 5 above, but this time choose Enabled.
You need to turn Boot Booster back on once you've restored Windows, or your computer will be like molasses in the winter in booting up.

Asus moved the User Manual for the Eee PC 1005HA to their FTP site.

In the list click right on >

This is a Zip file.
After you unzip it you will have a PDF file.

After you click on the above file name a small window will come up.
Click on Save File.

Observe, and write down, what you see in the top of the next small window that comes up.
In the top of that window is where this file will download to.
It may have Desktop, or My Documents, or Downloads in the wording.

If it has My Documents in the wording, the file will go to your My Documents folder.
{Start > My Documents}

If it has Downloads in the wording, the file will go to your Downloads folder.
(Start > My Documents > Double-click on Downloads}

When you see the file name double-click right on it.

Now click on Unzip in the list.

How do i restore a inspiron b130 to factory settings


You may follow the below steps to perform a full factory restore:

Use an external hard drive to back up any important files on the computer as all of the data on the computer's hard drive will be erased during the restore process. Connect the hard drive to the computer via the USB cable and transfer any valuable photos, music, programs or documents into the hard drive's folder. Once all the files are copied into the folder, right-click on the hard drive's folder icon and choose "Eject."
  • Remove any other unnecessary hardware device cables connected to the computer as they maybe damaged when the computer is restored. Disconnect any scanners, USB drives, MP3 players, smart phones and the external hard drive.
  • Close any programs running on the computer and turn off the computer. Turn the power back on and hold down the "F8" key when the Dell logo appears on the screen to open the "Advanced Boot Options" screen. Make sure to complete this step before Windows loads.
  • Click on the "Dell Factory Image Recovery and DataSafe options" icon. Select the language settings for the computer and click "Next." Check the box for "Yes, reformat hard drive and restore system software to factory condition" and click on the "Next" button to begin the restore process. The computer will then erase the hard drive and restore the computer to the original factory condition. Press "Finish" to restart the computer with the factory settings restored.

    How to reset to factory default with out discs

    Asus has become one of the "Top 5" computer manufacturers worldwide.

    CNET attributes this growth to the Netbook craze.

    The company's name comes from the last four letters of "Pegasus," the winged horse from Greek Mythology.

    You can restore your Asus laptop to the original factory settings in about five minutes.

    Restart your ASUS laptop and press the "F9" key while the computer is booting up.

    This will open the boot screen. Select "Recover Windows to Entire HD" and press "Enter."

    Press "Y" three times when asked if you are sure that you want to restore.

    The laptop will restore the factory settings.

    The computer will then shut down and start up again.

    Approve the license agreement, then select your "Language preference."

    Enter your name into the box and click "Next."

    Enter your password twice on the next screen and select "Next."

    Enter the time zone and date information, then select "Next." Select "Finish" on the next screen and the computer will reboot.

    hope this helps

    A number of these machines have a function that can restore to factory settings by pressing one of the special function keys at startup. There is a factory restore partition on the hard drive that keeps this info. So, if on startup you see a message such as "press F11 for restore" or something like that, do it.

    Cant restore to factory settings tried 0,f1 and f8 none work

    When your Toshiba Satellite laptop goes on the fritz, there are several instances where the best solution is to delete everything and start over. If your system frequently crashes or you can't remove a specific virus, you may want to restore the laptop back to original factory settings. While the easiest way to restore the system is to use the operating system restore disc, it is possible to restore the system without it. Each Satellite laptop also includes a hard drive recovery utility that lets you restore the operating system without the restore disc.

    1. Take account of any files or programs you still want to use after the Toshiba laptop is restored back to its factory settings. Transfer the files to a backup location, such as a USB flash drive or external hard drive.

    2. Restart the Toshiba Satellite laptop's operating system. Wait for the Toshiba logo to appear on the screen.

    3. Press the key that brings up the hard drive disk utility menu. Depending on the specific model of your Toshiba Satellite laptop, the key will either be "0," "F1," or "F8."

    4. Press "1" or click "Restore Original Factory Image." Click "Yes." Select "Next" to begin the restoration process.

    5. Restart the Toshiba laptop computer when the restoration process finishes running. Follow the prompts that appear on the screen to set up the laptop's date, time and language settings.

    6. Transfer the backup copies of the data you saved earlier back to the Toshiba's hard drive. Re-install any programs you need, such as your software firewall or anti-virus tool.

    I hope you find it very helpful. Thank you for using

    I want to reboot my dell 1505 inspiron laptop to factory specs. Please help.

    Note: restoring your computer to its original factory settings will clear most of the data off of your hard drive, including personal files. Be sure to back up what you need.

    Some computers ship without a system restore, but your computer more than likely has it.
    To restore your computer to its original state, do the following:
    - Make sure your computer is powered off.
    - Turn on your computer, and hold the 'Ctrl' key and the 'F11' key at the same time
    - When the menu appears, select 'restore'
    - If your computer does not have system restore, you will not be able to / not see restore
    - Confirm that you wish to restore your computer
    - Your system will be reset to its original state
    - When finished, select 'finish' to reboot the computer

    You will have to go though some of the menus that you did when you originally had your computer. Your computer should finish restoring after these menus.
