To reset BIOS to factory default settings, press "F10" during the POST section and then press "F5" to reinstall factory BIOS settings, Save the new settings and reboot.
To recover to a clean install of the Operating System you will need a set of Recovery Disks. If you do not have them, and the machine will load Windows successfully then you should be able to create them from the "HP Backup & Recovery Manager" although whether this will return to factory default or simply create disks for recovery to its current state I am not sure. Alternatively I understand you can get Recovery Disks from HP, although whether still available for this model - I don't know. Hope this helps.

I wanted to factory reset the same computer dell inspiron 1721 but it won`t take the command


To restore a Dell Inspiron computer with a Windows 7 or Windows Vista operating system to factory settings, users simply need to press the F8 key when the Delllogo appears. Then, they should select the "Repair your Computer" option from the advanced boot menu, which may require a password.

Dell inspiron mini 1012...it was givin to me person forgot password and didn't have administrative on it did the F8 a million times password needed any other way to factory reset it


You can only use a dvd OS disk, if the motherboard has no password on it. With no administrator password, you cannot use the restore function as permission from the administrator must be given.

I need a code for a kodakhero printerphotocopier 7.1


I don't believe that model has a password. You may just need the password for the network you are using. If you want to reset the unit to the factory defaults see below.

To reset defaults to the factory default settings:
1. Press .
2. Touch , then touch Printer Settings.
3. Touch , then touch Reset All Settings.
4. When you see the message, "This will reset printer settings to factory defaults,"
touch Yes.
NOTE: Resetting factory defaults does not change the date and time, language, or
country/region.

A few months ago someone was getting into my router & downloading movies, I assume. Had a tech help me put in a password to secure it. Forgot the password & now can't use my ipod touch at home. Any...


Yes there is.. BUT you'll have to set up the security again... Fortunately DLink has a handy setup wizard which you can access here.. http://support.dlink.com/emulators/di514_revc/h_wizard.html
This will work right on your browser. You might want to test that it works on your system before wiping the router. (Just start it up then cancel if it starts)

Find the recessed reset button on back of the router close to the power input. Press and hold it with paper clip or pen tip for 10 - 15 seconds. This will restore it to factory settings.

You should use a wired connection to access the internet after that, no password. Go to the link above and use the online wizard to setup the router with encrytion and new password.

If it all orks wout for you kindly give me a rating. Thanks.

I have WGT624 v2 used for years and in a pretty good condition. Unfortunately, it suddenly doesn't work recently. No internet connection at all. The power LED light keep blinking and the color change...


Step 1 With the unit on, place a paper clip into the hole on the back on the unit labeled Reset.

Step 2 Hold paper clip down for 10 seconds and release.

Note: Do not repower unit during this procedure.

Step 3 The unit will reboot on its own. Once the WLAN light stops blinking, the unit is reset.

Resetting the router does not reset the firmware to an earlier version. It will change all settings back to factory defaults.

Note: The factory defaults username is admin, and there is no password.

If you need more help come back.Post / thumbs / testimonial are welcome!

I HAVE FORGETTEN THE PASSWORD , PLS. ADVISE HOW I CAN SOLVE THE PROPLEM


There is a small reset button on the back of the unit. To hard reset to factory default settings: Locate reset button on the back, use paperclip to push reset button. Hold for about 10 seconds then release. After unit reboots, which may take a few minutes, it will be reset to the factory default settings. You will lose the current configuration settings.

My son set up my Dlink router many years ago and does not remember the password for admistrator and I am trying to secure my wireless network and cannot since I do not have the password


The easiest solution is simply to reset the router to its factory defaults, as that will also reset the administrator login and password to the default settings.
Do the following: Step 1 With the unit on, place a paper clip into the hole on the back on the unit labeled Reset.

Step 2 Hold paper clip down for 10 seconds and release.

Note: Do not repower unit during this procedure.

Step 3 The unit will reboot on its own. Once the WLAN light stops blinking, the unit is reset.

You can now log into the router using the default settings: user name = admin and password is blank (the default settings are for no password - be sure to go to the Admin section and create a password before changing other settings.
