What model of pc do you have. Different manufacturers provide different utilities for restoring operating system. nowadays most of the manufacturers provide recovery utility which is in the hidden partition on the hard drive. that can be lauched by pressing F10 key or F9 key (it really depends on manufacturer.
Make sure you backup all your important data before doing factory restore.
Alternatively you can get retail vertion of XP or Vista or any other operating system this depends on your hardware.
If this will not work let me know the brand of your PC>

I'm going to make a guess here and assume you have a PC and want to reset it back to the way it was when you 1st brought it home.

You need a Recovery CD. Every new PC comes with one and it sounds like you lost yours. Just contact the manufacturer and ask for a replacement.

If there is a password set, you cannot reset to factory unless you know it. Use a system disc and start from scratch.

I need to reset my toshiba satelite A215-S4817 to factory default


toshiba satelite A215-S4817
This is a laptop not a desktop !!
Restoring factory default settings on your computer can be done within a couple of hours, without any need for the recovery discs.
First, you need to back up any data and information that you want to keep, such as documents, pictures, and downloaded email, since everything will be erased from your hard drive after restoring the factory settings on your computer.
If you haven't restored factory settings on your machine before, do not worry.
With proper instruction, you can have your computer back to its original state within a few hours at most.

Restart your computer and proceed to Step 2 before Windows begins to load after reboot.
If you are restoring a Toshiba model, hold down the "0" (zero) key as you turn off the machine, then skip to step three.
2
Access your computer's "PC Recovery" feature by entering the correct button(s) for your machine.
This button varies, depending on the make of your machine.
HP and Dell users will hit the "F11" key, whereas Acer and Sony users will enter "F10."
If you own a Samsung model, use "F4."
3
Select "Destructive Recovery," or "Restore Original Factory Image," from the list of options that appear on the next screen, then click "Continue."
A destructive recovery will erase everything on your machine and reinstall the operating system.
4
Wait as the factory settings are restored on your computer.
Windows will require you to make date, time, and language settings on the next set of screens to follow after your machine restarts.
This process can take anywhere from a half-hour up to 2 hours to complete.

Disk won't eject Error message: System error is detected System error is detected BE file:\Dvdv_util.c, line:264 Sensecode( 3: 2: 0), Detail:0x0


Hello

When operating, errors happen. Turn off the device.

(To turn off, press and hold the power button on the front
of the device for 10 seconds.)

After turning off, press the Open button and remove the
disc from the device
If needed reset the device to its factory settings after the disc is ejected. To reset it to factory settings:

Press the [UP] and [DOWN] buttons on

your DVD recorder simultaneously

when the power is on. All settings

including the password will revert to

the factory settings. Do not use this

unless absolutely necessary.

(Note that this function is possible only
when no disc is inserted.)
ok.

Just been given acer5920 how do yo reset it to factory settings


Keep hitting Alt and F10 keys together when it is first booting to get to the restore routine. This can be tricky so give it a few tries. If the restore partition was deleted this won't work and you would need to reinstall from discs to go back to a fresh install.

There is an error in the manual. In order to reset to factory defaults, turn on (with no disc inside), DO NOT OPEN THE DISC TRAY, just press the stop button on the player for 5 seconds (some solutions say 20 seconds).
