Major PC Crash!!!!!

I recenty tried to restore my advent T9400 PC back to it's original factory settings. I placed in the cd as usual and waited until the 'R' for recovery appeared. Halfway through the whole system froze and shut down. When I went to restart the computer to try again and the 'R' for recovery option appeared, I was advised by a friend to press control and backspace to get the settings to appear. I did this and think I chose option 6. Since this my PC when booted up will now go onto the black screen with the white writing, then gets as far as ''Verifying DMI pool data....Boot from CD: then it freezes at this point. I have tried this both with and without a CD in the DVD drive and get the same result. I cannot get past this point at all and no buttons will work. Please please help. Thank you sooooo much.

What operating system are you using? If its windows xp and you are using your factory restore discs, you might want to try using a normal windows xp disc and doing a fresh install. Another option is that your hard drive is bad or is going bad. I would download the ultimate boot cd and run seatools off the ubcd. Check your hard drive to see if its still ok.

How do i restore my fujitsu siemens amilo 7850 laptop to factory default settings


But before you do this remember that restoring the laptop to factory settings.... All of the data on your laptop's hard drive will be permanently erased when you restore it to its original settings. Before starting the restore process you may want to save any data you still need to an external drive such as a USB flash storage device.
Place the operating system recovery CD that came with your computer into the CD or DVD drive. Restart the computer.Wait for the computer manufacturer's logo to pop up on the screen. Press the keyboard key that brings up the recovery menu, which is usually "F2," "F8," or "Ctrl" and "F11" pressed simultaneously.Select the specific language you want the operating system to use from the menu at the top of the screen. Select "Next."
Choose the option labeled "PC Restore," "Repair Your Computer" or something similar. Click "Next."Select "Restore" and then click "Enter" to start the process. Click "Restart" once the process has ended to boot the restored computer to its operating system.

I have an ibm that i would like bring back to factory status


hello hershyhunk to fully restore a PC to factory settings/defaults you will need to reinstall the operating system. to do this you need your recovery disks that came with your computer.
WARNING!! All of the data on your laptop's hard drive will be permanently erased when you restore it to its original settings. Before starting the restore process you may want to save any data you still need to an external drive such as a USB flash storage device.
Depending on the specific brand and model of your laptop you may need to select different options to restore the computer to its original settings. Check the manual that came with your laptop to find the specific menu options you need to select. Some computer manufacturers include an icon in the Start menu for restoring the laptop to its original settings without having to use a separate recovery disk. Double-click the icon and follow the instructions on the screen to start the restore process.
  1. Place the operating system recovery CD that came with your computer into the CD or DVD drive. Restart the computer.
  2. Wait for the computer manufacturer's logo to pop up on the screen. Press the keyboard key that brings up the recovery menu, which is usually "F2," "F8," or "Ctrl" and "F11" pressed simultaneously.
  3. Select the specific language you want the operating system to use from the menu at the top of the screen. Select "Next."

My pc is infected, and I need to reboot it to its factory settings.


Restore your Laptop to Factory Settings is an EASY utility BUILT into Windows -- it CLEANS EVERYTHING...computer and hardware. But, it is HANDY. jQuery(document).ready(function(){ jQuery('.intro .thumbnail a:first').attr('href','http://i.ehow.com/images/a06/6v/d1/reboot-laptop-back-factory-settings-800X800.jpg'); }); Rebooting your laptop back to its factory settings restores your computer and its hardware to its original settings when it was purchased. This is helpful when troubleshooting major hardware and system performance issues. It can also be used to fix virus related issues. Restoring your computer to its factory settings is similar to performing a clean install of your operating system. Windows uses a utility program called System Restore that allows you to restore your computers settings to a specific date.
jQuery('.intro .thumbnail').each(function(i,e){ jQuery(e).find('img').one('error',function(){ jQuery(e).remove(); }); }); Difficulty: Easy Instructions
  1. Step 1 Turn on your computer, and then click on the "Start" menu icon in the bottom left-hand corner of the screen. Select "All Programs," and then click on the "Accessories" drop-down menu.
  2. Step 2 Scroll down to "System Tools," and then select the "System Restore" program and wait for it to open.
  3. Step 3 Select the "Restore My Computer to an Earlier Time" option, and then click on the "Next" button to continue. A window with a calendar will appear.
  4. Step 4 Click on the back arrow in the calendar's window. Click on the back-arrow until you have reached the date you either purchased or installed Windows on your Notebook. Select the appropriate date, and then click on the "Next" button to continue. Your computer will automatically restart.
