If you know how to restore then just undo the restore and put it back as it was. then when it ask you for your password put it in and if it works keep note of it then do the restore to a previous time.

My ipod touch is locked and i cant remember the code


Thanks for asking your question with Fixya Support. I will be glad to assist you.

Unfortunately if your iPod Touch is locked and you cannot recall the pass code to unlock it, you will have to perform a factory restore, in order to clear your iPod Touch of that previous pass code.

The good thing is, even though you will wipe all your current data on your iPod Touch, after the factory restore, you can restore your most current back up through iTunes to restore the data back to your iPod.

To restore your iPod Touch is simple:
* Be sure you restore your iPod Touch on the same computer or notebook that your previous iPod Touch backup files or stored.

* Now, make sure you are using the latest version of iTunes.
• Be sure your iPod Touch is correctly connected to computer or notebook .

• Finally, in the left column under DEVICES, click on your iPod Touch, then click on Restore under the Summary tab.

* Allow the process to complete and your iPod Touch will be restored to its original factory default settings.

* Now simply re-sync your iPod Touch with iTunes and this is where your last sync now comes into play. When you sync after the restore, iTunes will look for your iPod Touch's previous backup and per your permission, will restore your most recent backup to your device.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This time, when you set up your pass code... Make sure to write it down somewhere or in a place that is easily accessible and a in a place that you won't soon forget.

Thanks for contacting Fixya.

WINDOWS XP SYSTEM RESTORE


System Restore is a tool that takes your computer back to a previously working state. This option is available in Windows ME, Windows XP and Windows Vista. Windows takes snapshots of critical system files, program files and registry settings and stores them as "Restore Points". If ever you should have any problem with your computer, you can "restore" your computer to one of these Restore Points, when your computer was working fine.
Please remember - System restore does NOT have any effect on your personal files such as emails, documents or photographs.
HOW TO USE SYSTEM RESTORE TO RESTORE WINDOWS XP TO A PREVIOUSLY WORKING STATE
In order to perform a System Restore, you must have administrative rights in your computer. If this is your own personal computer, then chances are that you will be having administrative rights in it, however if you are on a network computer, say for example in a computer at your workplace, then you will have to request your Network Administrator to help you.
In order to restore Windows to a previously working "Restore Point" follow the steps given below:
1. Log on to Windows with administrative rights.
2. Click Start, go to All Programs, go to Accessories, go to System Tools, and then click System Restore. System Restore starts.
3. On the Welcome to System Restore page, click Restore my computer to an earlier time (if it is not already selected), and then click Next.
4. On the Select a Restore Point page, click the most recent system restore point and then click Next.
Note A System Restore message may appear that lists configuration changes that System Restore will make. Click OK.

5. On the Confirm Restore Point Selection page, click Next. System Restore restores the previous Windows XP configuration, and then restarts the computer.
6. Log on back to your computer. The System Restore Restoration Complete page is displayed.
7. Click OK.

If you have successfully restored your computer to a previous state, and the computer is performing as it should be, you can stop here.
But if the restore process completed successfully and the computer is still not performing as you want, you can either restore your computer to a different restore point or just undo the current System Restore. In order to undo a System Restore, please continue reading.
HOW TO RUN SYSTEM RESTORE FROM THE COMMAND PROMPT?
Many times, you may not be able to run System Restore because your computer will not start up normally. But you can still run System Restore from the command prompt.
  • Click on Start -> Run -> and type in %systemrestore%\system32\restore\rstrui.exe and click OK
OR
  1. Start up the computer in Safe Mode or Safe Mode with Command Prompt
  2. At the Command Prompt type %systemrestore%\system32\restore\rstrui.exe
  3. You can replace %systemrestore% with C:\Windows, if you like
  4. You might have to select the Operating System in your computer
  5. You might also have to enter your username and password
  6. You should have Administrator Rights in your computer to do this.
HOW TO UNDO A SYSTEM RESTORE:

You may have unintentionally restored Windows XP to a previous configuration that you do not want. To undo the restoration, follow these steps:
1. Log on to Windows with administrative rights.
2. Click Start, go to All Programs, go to Accessories, go to System Tools, and then click System Restore. System Restore starts.
3. On the Welcome to System Restore page, click Undo my last restoration, and then click Next.
Note A System Restore message may appear that lists configuration changes that System Restore will make. Click OK.
4. On the Confirm Restoration Undo page, click Next. System Restore restores the original Windows XP configuration, and then restarts the computer.
5. Logon to the computer as Administrator. The System Restore Undo Complete page appears.
6. Click OK.
You can now run System Restore again from a Different Restore Point.

My iphone want go pass the silver apple screen


Using the Restore function for your device is part of standard troubleshooting procedure. Restoring your device will delete all the data from your device, including songs, videos, contacts, photos, calendar information, and any other data. All settings are restored to their factory condition.
Whenever you restore your device, Apple highly recommends that you perform a sync prior to restoring to back up any changes since your last sync. If you have movie rentals on the device, see iTunes Store movie rental usage rights in the United States before restoring.
Use the following steps to restore your device:
  1. Make sure you have the latest version of iTunes installed and running before attempting to update.
  2. Connect your device to your computer.
  3. Select your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch when it appears in iTunes under Devices.
  4. Select the Summary tab.
  5. Select the Restore option.
  6. When prompted to back up your settings before restoring, select the Back Up option (as seen in the image below). If you have just backed up the device, it is not necessary to create another.
    ht1414_03--back_up_settings-002-en.jpg
  7. Select the Restore option when iTunes prompts you (as long as you've backed up your device, you should not have to worry about restoring your phone).
    ht1414_04--restore_dialog-002-en.jpg
  8. Once the restore process has completed, the device restarts and displays the Apple logo while starting up:
    ht1414_05--restored-002-en.jpg
    iPhone only: For the iPhone only, after a restore, the iPhone displays the "Connect to iTunes" screen. Keep your device connected until the "Connect to iTunes" screen goes away or you see "iPhone is activated." If iTunes does not have an Internet connection, you cannot complete this step.
    ht1414_06--connect-002-en.png ht1414_07--activated-002-en.png
  9. The final step is to restore your device from a previous backup. Once your device is restored and-in the case of the iPhone-in the process of activating, you should be able to see the following in iTunes:
    ht1414_08--set_up-003-en.png
    Select the backup you want for your device and select the Continue button to complete your device's restoration.
If you do not want to restore from backup, select "Set up as new..." If you want to preserve previous backups that iTunes has made, be sure to back up the appropriate directory before choosing to set up as new.

How do i reset my hp computer back to the way i bought it?


factory settings could mean performing a system restore to a previous state of the OS. I'll try to explain how you can perform each one of these methods in the article below.
Restore Factory Settings - System Restore System Restore is the in-built tool of Windows XP and Windows Vista that allows you to roll back the registry to a previous state. Note that it only "restores" previous settings for the registry and Windows system files.
You can use system restore to get rid of spyware, but if system restore does not fix your problem, you'll have to resort to either a clean install of the OS or using your recovery CD/DVDs.
You can read my previous post on how to restore your computer using the System Restore feature. If system restore is disabled, you can read my post on how to enable system restore again.
restorefactorysettings-thumb.png
Restore Factory Settings - Recovery CD/DVDs Most computers come with either a recovery CD/DVD or a recovery partition that is hidden on the computer. This is true for most HP and Dell machines now these days.
If you have one of these, you can access the recovery from within Windows or during startup.
For HP, you can go to Start, All Programs, HP Tools, and then choose HP PC System Recovery.
hprecoverymanager-thumb.png
You can also press the F10 key multiple times during bootup to get access to the recovery console in case Windows is not loading properly.
On Dells, you can access the recovery partition by pressing Ctrl + F11 immediately after the machine is turned on.
Note that all of your data will be lost on the hard drive. Using a recovery CD is not the same as repairing XP. When you repair Windows XP, all of the system files are replaced with the original ones, but your data and applications remain intact.
Restore Factory Settings - Clean Install XP Your last and final option for restoring XP to factory settings is to perform a clean install. This requires having the CD/DVD for the OS. If you only have a hidden recovery partition, you will not be able to perform a clean install.
A clean install basically consists of booting from the original XP CD, deleting all partitions, recreating new partitions, and then installing Windows XP from CD.
It's a fairly straight-forward process and you can read this excellent tutorial for step by step instructions. Again, it's important to note that you will lose all your data in this process.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Unfortunately, you are going to have to restore your iPod, but this is not an "all is lost scenario. As long as you have already previously backed up your iPod via a previous sync, you should be ok.
To restore your iPod is simple:
* Be sure you restore your iPod on the same computer or notebook that your previous iPod backup files or stored.

* Now, make sure you are using the latest version of iTunes.
• Be sure your iPod is correctly connected to computer or notebook .

• Finally, in the left column under Devices, click on your iPod, then click on Restore in the Summary tab.

* Allow the process to complete and your iPod will be restore to its original factory default settings.

* Now simply sync your iPod with iTunes and this is where your last sync now comes into play.

When you sync after the recovery, iTunes will look for your iPod's previous backup and per your OK, will restore your most recent backup to your iPod.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This time, when you set your passcode...
