If you have concerns about privacy go and get it properly wiped by a professional, a simple system restore or factory restore isn't going to guarantee your old files are unrecoverable and will leave your data at risk.

However if you still want to risk your private data being accessed by someone you could do a factory restore. You can trigger this on many Samsung models by pressing F4 at startup on the Samsung splash screen.

SOURCE: Slow Laptop Performance

You need to follow some simple steps to boost up your speed. Before using the 3rd party utilities I suggest you to start with windows own utilities. Perform disk clean up,

Start> All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Disk Clean up

Reduce the quantity of startup programs simple type MSCONFIG after open the Run option and enter. uncheck the non essential applications (You can consider non essential software aside hotkey utility and antivirus). After click on apply and OK restart prompt will appear. "Dont Restart"

Go to My Computer, Right click on C drive and choose "Properties" click the Tools tab and click on the check now button in Disk error checking area. Check both of the boxes when it prompt. And click on OK. It will inform you that system unable to check as its in use therefore it will start when you restart computer. It will perform 5 steps error checking. It might take up to 1 hour.

Once computer start it will be definitely faster. however you have still many ways to choose better performance over some value added features. Like you can choose best performance instead of best appearance. Also you can disable System Restore feature this will increase performance and speed while feature will be not available.

Please post more if further assistance needed

Good Luck.

SOURCE: Gateway laptop reset

Gateway Direct systems went "media-less" back in September 2004. In the event of a system crash users could either 1) restore their systems from the Recovery Partition OR 2) from the backup media that they were prompted to create on first power-up -- which would provide them with up to 5 blank CD-R discs depending on their system's configuration.

On the factory load of the hard drive, the recovery partition will not contain operating system files. It only contains application and driver files.
The first time the recovery partition is used, it prompts the user to insert their System Recovery CD/DVD to copy files from the CD to the recovery partition.
The Drivers and Applications CD is not bootable and does not contain Operating System files.
The System Recovery CD/DVD is bootable but does not contain any application or driver files.
If the end-user erases the hard drive and restores the computer using the System Recovery CD/DVD and an Applications and Drivers CD, the recovery partition is not recreated.

This means that you will need the operating system restore disc FIRST then the recovery partition will work for you

Some of the keys not working on my samsung n150 netbook - backspace, delete , ] ' @ / toggle buttons tried restart, restore to earlier date - nothing works

The whole keyboard will need to be replaced in order to fix the problem, the keys are not designed to be serviced making it impossible to rectify the situation. The best solution is take it to a computer shop to have the issue resolved, or attach an external keyboard to restore full operation.

I have restored my system, and now Microsoft office is not there. What to do?

Hi akshay_20200,

It seems that the original "restore" does not include Office as part of the original suite of applications.

You may have to reinstall and reactivate your own licensed copy.

However, an open-source version that's able to access/create/modify Office files (even the more recent *.docx, for example) is Open Office.

Let us know how it goes.

Hope this helps,
