You system's factory Image included a PC Restore Partition. Provided that hasn't been damaged, you may still be able to re-image you system to the way it was out of the box using PC Restore. NOTE ALL data you have added to the system will be lost forever.

How to restore factory setting on gateway model mt6705


Step 1:
Restoring your Windows 7 Gateway computer to its original factory settings is a great way to get rid of pesky viruses you can't seem to remove from your computer, or simply to remove old programs and files from your computer and start with a clean slate. Your Windows 7 Gateway computer will likely run faster as a result of deleting old and unnecessary files. It's also a good idea to restore your Windows 7 Gateway computer to its original factory settings if you plan on selling it, or passing it along to a family member or friend.

Recover From Windows 7 Home Screen Click the "Start" icon in the lower-left corner of your Windows 7 home screen. Click "All Programs" in the Start menu, then click "Gateway". Click "Gateway Recovery Management" to open the Gateway Recovery Management program. Click the "Restore" header, then click "Restore System To Factory Default". Click "Yes" in the "Confirm Restoration" dialog box, then click "Yes". Click "OK" in the dialog box warning you that all of the personal data on your computer will be deleted. Your computer will automatically restart. When your computer restarts the restoration process will begin. The process could take anywhere between 30 and 90 minutes. Click "OK" when a dialog appears telling you that the computer has been restored to its original factory settings and that you need to reboot your Gateway Windows 7 computer. Your computer will reboot. After the computer restarts you will need to configure Windows 7 with your personal preferences. b> Recover at Startup Turn on or restart your computer and hold down "Alt" while clicking "F10" during startup until you are redirected to the Gateway Recovery Management program. Click "Restore System From Factory Default". Click "Next" to begin the restoration process. The process could take anywhere between 30 and 90 minutes.

MAKE YOUR S60 DEVICE FASTER AND RECOVER RAM


In the next few posts i will post some tricks to make your phone faster and also recover precious RAM.

1. MOVE HELP FILES TO MEMORY CARD
If you are running low on phone memory and have a lot of apps installed, you can recover a part of it by transferring help files to the memory card.
Enable CAPS OFF
open Xplore or fxplorer and move C/resource/help to E/resource/help.
All the apps will find it automatically in the E drive.
This trick will increase your phone memory thereby making your phone a little bit faster.

2. DISABLE LIFEBLOG PERMANENTLY
first use jbak taskman to kill lifeblogobserver process
make sure x-plorer is set to show hidden files
then go to c/data/lifeblog/database
now delete the lifeblog.dbfile
reboot phone
now use jbak taskman to kill lifeblogobserverprocess once again!
then go to c/data/lifeblog/database
select llifeblog.db file and press 6 tick hidden and read-only reboot phone. You'll notice the phone's boot up is faster and it will also release some RAM.
if you want to use lifeblog again go toc/data/lifeblog/database
select llifeblog.db file and press 6
and untick hidden and read-only


3. STOP AUTO STARTUP OF APPS ( for a faster boot up)
You can disable the third party applications to boot at start . These applications boot at startup and slow down the phone,s startup. In order to stop them to boot them use the following process.
The info of all the start up apps is stored in c:\private\100059c9\start.dat
whenever you allow any application to start automatically at startup the file start.dat is updated. The simplest method to disable the apps to load at boot up is to simply rename the start.dat file i renamed it to start.dat.txt. After renaming it your phone will boot as it boots after a fresh formating.
When ever you again want to enable the startup apps just remove the .txt extension.
You can also edit start.dat file to enable some applications to boot at start up and disabiling others but i don,t know how to edit .dat file. But you can edit it if you know how to edit it.
The easiest method of editing the .dat file is to delete the old start.dat file and then go to the applications which you want to boot at start up and rechange their setting ie (enable auto start=yes). A new .dat file will be created automatically which will only boot those apps which you want.
You can even further boost up your phone start up by renaming files like
C:\private\100012a5\DBS_101F99FB_NSmlDSSettings.db
C:\private\100012a5\DBS_101F99FB_nsmlagentlog.db
C:\private\100012a5\DBS_101F99FB_NSmlDMsettings.db
C:\private\100012a5\DBS_101F99FE_NSml_Adapterlog.d b
C:\private\100012a5\DBS_101F99FE\NSml_adapterlog?? ?.dat
C:\private\101F99FD\nsmladapterlog???.dat
C:\private\101f9a06\nsmldmtree.db
C:\private\100056cf\clockapp.dat
C:\private\100059a8\nitz.dat
C:\private\100012a5\DBS_101F9A02_nsmldmfotaadapter .db
C:\private\100012A5\101f8683_ScShortcutEngine.db
C:\private\1000850\logo*.*
C:\private\100012a5\DBS_10205030_accpolicydb.db
C:\private\1000c959\localdata\commondata.D???
C:\private\1000c959\localdata\localdata.D???
To .txt files or simply delete them.
Deleting all these files is the other name of restoring your phone to factory setting without losing any application data. Deleting these files also deletes sim data mean the network data of all the sims used in a phone. When you will rename all these files your all phone setting will be lost like clock time ,month date year. When you will again set different settings like adjust the ,adjust the date duplicate files of all the files you renamed or deleted will be created mean fresh data files .to again gainyour original setting as they were before applying the hack just delete all the duplicate files and rename all the above files as they were before renaming and restart your phone all your setting will be restored.

There is no sound or audio device


Try to 'restore' to an earlier date when the audio device worked, or 'recover' to original manufacturer settings and 'update' to present windows settings.

How do I recover to original factory setting on my computer


Hi.

If you never deleted the recovery partition (hidden on most computers) you can enter recovery mode at startup. When you power on your computer, hit ALT F10 continuously until you enter the recovery menu. You should be able to restore to factory defaults by this procedure.

How do I reconfigure, or restore to original settings?


Contact your Computer Manufacturer and ask them to send you a set of Vista Recovery disk/s.

They normally do that for a small $ cost.

Also, ask them if you have a Recovery Partition on your Computer/Laptop to restore it to Factory settings.

See if a Manual came with the computer, or go to the Manufacturer's website, email or phone them for info on how to do a Recovery.

Normally, you would press F10 or F11 at Startup to commence the Recovery Process..


Another way I have seen on some models is to tap F8, and go to a list of Startup options, and start a Factory Standards Recovery from in there, by selecting the Repair computer option.


Also ask them if it is possible to make Recovery Disk/s from the Recovery Partition in case of Hard Drive failure or System Crash.

They will tell you how to do that.


Each Computer Manufacturer has their own way of making Recovery Disk/s.
