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.

Re: Major PC Crash!!!!!

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 a diablotek elite atx mid tower to factory settings

Cases don't have "factory settings." This sounds like a problem with the motherboard configuration. Make sure to re-check all your pin connectors leading to USB, Audio, and HD. Also, you may need to remove the MB to check if there's any damage, and to be sure that you don't have a short somewhere.

Need to reset my ipod touch to factory settings

1. Plug your iPod 4G into your computer with its dock connector USB cable.
2. Install the most recent version of iTunes and open iTunes. Wait a moment for your iPod to appear in the side bar.
3. Click on your iPod in the side bar and select "Restore." A pop-up window will ask if you're sure you want to clear your iPod and restore to factory settings. Click "Continue" and enter your password, if prompted.
4. Leave the iPod untouched and on a flat surface while it restores to original settings. It's important that you don't try to disconnect or use the iPod while it's restoring. You'll see a progress bar either on the iPod or your computer that indicates how far along the process is.
5. Select your new syncing settings (automatic sync or manual) when prompted after the restore is complete.

Where can i source a tower cd rom sprung door in silver for an advent T9304 pc

Well Advent is PC Worlds own brand. Personally I would forget about it and just move the drive forward in the case so it is flush with the front of the case. The Tech guys would probably just say it is not available just to get rid of you.

    Advent PC change DVD Drive

    On almost all CD-Roms and DVD-ROMS there is a very, very small pin-hole on the disk drive door located, usually in the middle lower third of the door... but not always. When you find it you will need to do the following:
    1. Take a medium or large sized paper clip and straighten it out so at least two of the clips sections are straight.
    2. Put the straightened wire into the hole and push it gently straight into the hole until you feel some resistance. This is the release mechanism for the drive door and track lock.
    3. You then push firmly and steadily into the release tab until the door and track pop out. It only will pop out about a half an inch or a little less, but it isn't locked any more.
    4. Now you can use your fingers and pull the tray the rest of the way out to retrieve you media
    I hope this will resolve your problem, Good Luck

    Hardisk have difrent amount

    Because Compaq has a hidden partition on you're C:\
    Stored in that hidden partition is Compaq's restore drivers & software. If & when you need to run the restore CD on the Compaq, the restore CD enter's that partition & uses the software to help in the process of restoring the C:\ drive to factory settings. (This is normal for most Compaqs).
