Question about Acer Computers & Internet
I recently bought a emachines computer from a friend i want to restore it to the factory settings for my personal use usually it is easy to find in the control panel yet all it will let me do is restore it to a past date
Unfortunately what you are after is not in Control Panel
thats an option in the BIOS
to access it:
while your computer is turning on, because its a HP, keep pressing Tab until a menu comes up, or if your quick youll see a message coming up during boot, (first screen that comes up) should say press Tab to enter the menu, or something like that when you are there, look for an option that says, "reset to factory defaults" or something similair, you dont need to go into any menus on this it should be there when the BIOS comes up, navigate to the option, press enter, press y then press f10 then y then enter, your computer will restart and you are done

Click the "Start" icon on the Windows Vista home screen. Select "eMachines," then click "eMachines Recovery Management." The eMachines Recovery Management program opens.
Click "Create Factory Default Disc." The program will tell you how many discs you will need. Make sure the correct optical drive is selected, then insert a blank disc into that drive. Click "Start" to begin the burning process.
Remove the disc when it is finished burning and label it "Recovery CD 1." Insert the next the next blank disc if one is required. Click "OK" to begin burning the next disc. Repeat this step until all of the discs have been created and labeled. Close the eMachines Recovery Management program, insert the system CD that came with the laptop and restart the laptop.
Press "F12" repeatedly when the eMachines logo is displayed on the screen to be redirected to the Boot menu. Select the optical drive, then press "Enter."
Insert Recovery CD 1 when you are prompted to insert the recovery disc. The eMachines Recovery Management program will open.
Click the "Restore" tab in the list on the left side of the eMachines Recovery Management program window, then select "Completely Restore System to Factory Defaults." The computer automatically restarts and the recovery process begins. Insert any additional recovery discs as requested. The computer will reboot automatically when the laptop has been recovered to its original factory default settings, and you will be taken to the Windows Setup screen.
Set up Windows Vista with your own personal settings.
