    what kind of computer is it? Gateway? how old is it, do you have a recovery partition? when you boot up your PC look for system recovery option if it has it. see the Gateway FAQ Here

    Good Luck!

If you mean that your computer is still working but you want it like it was when you first got it ..

If you are using windows XP ... go to START.
ALL PROGRAMS
Choose ACCESSORiES

Then SYSTEM TOOLS
Click on RESTORE

From the menu choose 'restore my computer to an earlier time' .. you can choose from dates, which are highlighted in bold.

Choose the earliest date.
Then click on 'restore' and let the computer do what it has to...

You will lose all programs that were installed since that date (except the operating system of course).

When finished, go back to system tools and choose 'defrag'. Let the computer do what it has to do.

I can find my product key for my hp g61


The system is brand new of course?Brand new HP systems comes with a recovery media saved inside one of your local disks named Recovery. NEVER tamper with that partition as it will affect your system and the recovery files inside will not work any although HP Protected that partition. Your product key will be automatically installed if the recover your computer properly, but may ask for product key if you formatted the computer with external windows that is not validated by Microsoft.
To solve the problem,

How do i reset my emachine t5048 to factory setting without the windows boot disc?


Some computers will have a recovery partition you can recover from it will prompt you as the computer is booting. Emachines are very low end computers and don't typically have a recovery partition.

Recovery problem i don,t have recovery CD


What's the brand and model of your computer? Usually it has an image partition to automatically recover your computer to its factory settings, if your computer has that you will be able to recover your computer without the CD but if not there's no other option but to buy a recovery disc.

I have a Asus pentium4 desktop it calling for a recovery disk, the screen comes up system 32 put recover disk which I don't have.


The disk-drive that is storing your copy of Windows has died.

So, when you turn the computer on, the disk-drive cannot be accessed, and Windows cannot be loaded, and so your computer displays that "please insert recovery disk" message.

Minimally, you need to buy a new disk-drive, install it, order a new set of "system recovery" CD/DVD disks from ACER, and reinstall Windows.

It might be time for you to buy a brand-new computer, which will be faster, and will run Windows 7.
Your existing keyboard/mouse/monitor/printer devices can be used -- you can buy a "bare" system, with Windows 7 pre-installed, and save some money (over buying brand-new "everything").

Put in new harddrive, but the recovery disk gives me error message 105.


If your "new" hard drive is really brand new from the factory, it needs to be partitioned and formatted before it will accept any software, even from a recovery disk. You can do that either with a slave cable via usb port using the "computer" "manage" function on a working computer, or use a boot CD to partition and format the drive on the computer getting the new drive. Then boot using the recovery disk and follow on-screen instructions.

Drive manufacturers save money by not preparing the drive, but it forces a user to know how to prepare it. Hence your difficulty getting the recovery disk to work. Just partition and format and you'll be ready to "recover".
