If you are lucky and the recovery partition is still intact, press F11 just before it boots and you will be able to restore to factory settings.

How to reset to factory settings


Hello there and welcome to fixya
To restore to factory settings
1. power off the computer make sure there is nothing connected to it like any internet cords or speakers or mouse ect ect.
2. turn on the computer and immediately press the f11 button you may have to press this a few times.
3. the computer will come up to the restore screen then it will ask you if you want to restore files or reset to factory settings this may be in the advanced options ok?
4.once it has started to restore DO NOT INTERRUPT IT because it formats the hard drive and re installs the original files back to factory condition.
If you do interrupt it you will be left with a inoperative computer and you will have to do the whole process over ok
Hope this is very helpful for you
Best regards Mike

What will happen if restore my factory settings on my 5800 phone? What should I do to save my data?


you can back your data onto your computer laptop ect via usb connection. Or store all important data onto a memory card (if phone supports memory card)
You can also create a back up from your memory settings in youre phone, but im unsure if that data will be lost when restoring factory settings.

Safest way is via usb to computer or memory card

Hope this helps and please rate thanks

Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console My PS3 hard disk is corrupted, It say to restore i put restore and nothing had been restored Bid


Corrupted hard disk? Lets see....

You could attempt to boot up the PS3 in safe mode and restore the file system (should delete any corrupted data). Describing how to start up your PS3 in safe mode would just be confusing, so instead here's a link to the official page on the PS3 Safe Mode feature.

Follow the instructions, and then I'd say try options 3 (Restore File System). If that doesn't work, try 4 or 5 (Rebuild Database or Restore PS3 System).

If that fails, you could just replace the hard drive. The PS3 uses standard 2.5inch SATA laptop/notebook hard drives (5400 or 7200 RPM). They can be found online at any computer parts website; for example, Tigerdirect.

If somehow the new hard drive doesn't fix it, or you don't feel like buying a new hard drive, you could send the PS3 back to Sony. If you're under warranty it's free; otherwise it's expensive (150$ I believe).

If you request the repair service, they send you a box, you put the PS3 in it and ship it back to them. A month or 2 later they send you a fixed/different PS3. Simple, but takes forever to get a working PS3 back which is why I suggest you try a new hard drive first.

Anyways, hope you get it working soon!

Is there a way to restore factory settings (out of the box settings) for the Toshiba Satellite A65-S1062?


Hi blackrose696. There's 2 ways. 1.- If you go to My Computer and see a partition (probably D:) called recovery, go to Start - All Programs - and see if you see under Toshiba - something called recovery or restore (you WILL loose ALL your data) and follow the instruction. If you DO see the partition but you dont see anything under Toshiba folder, then restart the computer and inmediately you will see something like Press F10 or F12 to boot from recovery partition.
If you dont see the recovery partition. The only way is using the Restore CDs... if you dont have those you have to order them from the Toshiba website. (they cost like $15) so that way you are sure you get the license and the drivers correctly. I hope this helps. Please do not forget to rate and provide positive feedback from our support today. Thank you :D
