SOURCE: How do I factory reset my Laptop Compaq CQ62 WITHOUT A DISC?

what version of windows do you have? if it's windows seven try this.
1. turn off your computer.
2. press the power button to turn your computer on.
3. hit f11 a few times quickly, while the launch screen is still up. this will launch the recovery manager. (if you see the windows 7 boot logo, you've missed your chance and need to restart your computer and try again from step 2.)
4. on the left side it will say "i need help immediately". underneath that there will be an option that says "system recovery". click on that.
5. there will be an option to either back up your files before restoring, or to recover without backing up your files.
6. it will tell you to make sure all devices are disconnected from your computer. make sure they are, and then click "ok".
7. there will be a "welcome to the recovery manager" screen. click "next".
8. it will begin to reformat your partition and to reinstall the windows 7 setup files. once it's done doing that, click "next". you'll be brought to a page saying "recovery is complete". after that all you need to do is reboot, and it will bring you through the wizard to set up windows 7, just like on a new computer!

How do i factory reset my C55D-A5120 Toshiba laptop without a recovery disc?

If a machine isn't infected with a virus, the easiest way to "factory reset" is to create a new administrator account, and delete the old account, along with all its files. You can do this by going into Control Panel and then users. In Windows 8, swipe (or move the cursor to the bottom right corner), click on Settings, then Control Panel.

How to restore Dell 1550 Inspiron to actual factory setting

Unless your using a email program such as thunder bird or if it is a Yahoo or Gmail account I would not even worry about having to delete anything.

Been reset to factory settings and need the password

You don't say what password you want. If it's windows password, in some versions of windows you can start the computer in safe mode by holding down the F8 key when starting the pc until it beeps. You can then log in as administrator without using any password and go to control panel to change the password. Failing this go to and download the windows password recovery program. Stellar Phoenix Password Recovery. It costs 49 dollars or 36 euros. It allows you to create a boot disc which you use to start the computer and displays all user passwords without entering windows and allows you to delete which ones you want so you can then shut down and restart without the boot disc and not need a password.

Linksys wireless G router wrt54gs no connection

Did you try holding the reset button in for 30 seconds or more?

A couple times a year I have to reset my WRT54G back to the factory defaults. I have PC's and laptops connected via CAT5 and wireless. There are a couple of methods to resetting to factory default.

Reset Button Note:
Resetting the router to the factory defaults will delete any changes you have made to the router, including any security settings. This should be used as a last resort.

The first method involves simply pressing a button located on the back of the router.
To reset your router, use the following steps:
  1. Press the reset button for 30 seconds. The settings should now be returned to the factory default settings, meaning any changes you had made would be deleted.
  2. Open up your Web browser and enter “′ in the address bar.
  3. For the login, leave a blank ID and enter “admin” as the password.
The router has now been reset. You'll need to go back in and set up any passwords or wireless security you had set up before.
Through the Web Administration Pages The second method involves logging into the Web administration pages of the router. Use the following steps to reset the router using this method:
  1. Open your Web browser and enter the IP address of your router. By default, the address is “′.
  2. Enter your user ID And password when prompted. Hopefully this has been changed, but if it hasn’t, the default is no ID and “admin” as the password.
  3. At the top of the Web page, click “Administration” and then “Factory Defaults”.
  4. Beside “Restore Factory Defaults”, click “Yes”.
  5. Now click the “Save Settings” button at the bottom of the Web page.
The router should now be reset to the factory defaults. Again, you'll need to go back in and set up any passwords or wireless security you had set up before.
