Restore emachine factory settings


Do a system restore point/date and see if that will take your PC back to where all your settings were at and what you liked at the time before you made the change.

Restore factory settings


Read the manual for the process to get into System Restore or Factory Restore.

Get online and got to www.google.com In the google search box type: "ASUS Support" (without the quotes and put your manufacturer name before Support). Look for downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operating system when requested. Look for Manuals and search them for System Recovery or Factory Restore.




System Restore will allow you to select a Restore Point (date and time) to set your system back to when it was working ok. It does not delete any of your data, documents, music, pictures, videos or programs (unless the program was installed after the Restore Date you selected).

System Recovery (sometimes referred to as Factory Restore) will set your system back to when you first purchased it. It Deletes Everything. Most times the System Recovery does not work unless there is a recovery partition on your hard drive created by the manufacturer. If you are trying to recover from a set of cd's most times it does not work.

Instead of doing a System Recovery it's much easier to just Reinstall Windows. Look on your computer for the Certificate of Authentication (COA) Sticker. It will tell you what operating system is on your computer and it will give you the Product Key Code (a series of 5 letters and numbers) that you will need to activate windows. If you don't have an operating system disk, borrow one from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker. Just make sure it is the same as your COA Sticker's operating system or it will never activate. Also make sure you get the COA Product Key Code for the disk you borrow because sometimes the system will ask for the one that is on your system and sometimes it will ask for the one from the installation disk.

Averatec 7100 laptop factory recovery disc


Most times the recovery discs don't work. Why not just get an operating system disk and reinstall the operating system?

Have you tried doing a System Restore? System Restore will let you select a Restore Point (date and time) before you started having problems. System Restore will not delete your data, documents, music, pictures, videos or programs (unless the program was installed after the Restore Point you selected). System Recovery on the other hand will delete everything and set your system back to the point when you first purchased it.

To start System Restore click Start/Programs or Start/All Programs. Click Accessories/System Tools/System Restore. When it opens you will have the option to select another restore point (date and time) than the one shown.

Your laptop is waiting for the restore disk. Some PCs keep the restore data on a separate partition of your hard-disk, but it seems yours doesn't, therefore it's waiting for a disk version. As you don't have this on disk, you have a problem, but people are often too hasty to restore to factory settings.

Turn the laptop off by holding the power button down for about 5 seconds. You should still be able to power back on and start in Safe Mode as you haven't actually started the factory restore. Once booted, select system restore again and this time choose a restore point/date rather than the factory settings option. If you've been having problems for a while, try choosing the earliest restore point available and see if this solves the problem. You will need to update some of your software again after doing this - in particular, make sure you update your Anti-Virus software as recent update patches will have been lost.

Other than this you have little option than to re-install Windows and everything else from scratch, unless you can obtain the factory settings on disk from somewhere.

Hope this helps.

My laptop is freezing and cant do anything with it how can i reset to factory settings


You can restore it to an earlierr date with the softwares resetting. Open control panel, open backup/restore and clcik on the date of restore point set.
If not use your recovery disk supplied with the OS but you may have to format the C drives , make sure all fiels are copied out.
Finally if both are not possible the OS must be installed fully,

Sluggish performance


if you have system restore enabled.. try going to :
- Start
- All Programs
- Accessories
- System tools > then system restore..

Select system restore to an earlier point.. select a date closest to the current when your computer last worked correctly.. if this works.. you could try a latter date if you so wish..

This will only work if you had system restore enabled.

Disk drive problem


Windows auomatically makes system restore files. These files allow you to restore your system to a previous date should there be a problem with your computer as a result on an installation of a "faulty" program. You can also create a Restore Point (date) if you wish, prior to installing a program.
To create a Restore Point or restore your computer to a particular date, click on Start - All Programs - Accessories - System Tools - System Restore, and follow the prompts.

How do you go back to factory settings on a philips freevents x51 laptop?


If you cannot find the backup disks an option that you can do is system restore although it really depends on how long your last restore point is.

Go to start then run then type in MSCONFIG
after that click on Launch System Restore
Restore it to the oldest date. Luckily it will have the system checkpoint at the first time you used it.
