Restore Cd The restore CD doesn't read on the laptop when I start it holding down the "C" key. The restore CD can be read from a different computer no problem. The CD player also reads and boots other CD's (i.e. OS)

Instead of holdingdown "C" while booting, just press F12 for boot options, and choose cd rom.
You must be a Mac person?
Try that, or just enter bios and set the boot order to make cd rom before the hard drive. Whichever you're more familiar with.
Hope it helps, good luck

Need to do a system restore

You can try by going to help by the start buttton and searching on restore/recovery and doing so. Or you can go to start, control panel and looking to see if there is a restore\recovery icon. Lastly you would have to reinstall your operating system by putting in the cd and rebooting after pressing F2 and selecting boot from CD. This WILL cause all user data to be lost so if you need it, it must be backed up first.

I want to resore to default setting but have no disk the cpu was a hand me down.

Depending on the manufacturer, the operating system (e.g. Windows XP Home Premium), and the computer model, the Operating system may be restored in one of the following ways:
1. The restore information may be stored on the Restore partition of your hard drive. This partition is usually located on the same hard drive as drive C: but has different letter assigned to it. You must Click on "Computer" or "My Computer" and look for this "Restore" or "System Restore" partition, access it and run the restore program. If your computer doesn't have the Restore partition than use the step below.

2. The operating system may be restored by using a restore CD for the operating system of your computer. You may borrow this CD from someone. After you finish reinstalling your operating system, Microsoft may ask you to enter the product key. Do not enter the product key of the CD you just used, but find Microsoft Operating System product key on the label attached somewhere to the exterior of your computer, and enter this product key exactly as it appears on that label.

How do i restore an ibm thinkpad laptop R51 PLEASE HELP

For restoration you must have the recovery software of your laptop to recover the system from its default settings. Assuming that you have that software you insert the cd or dvd into your cd or dvdrom drive. When turning on your computer press the boot selection key usually F11 or F12 then select the cd/dvd as your first boot and press enter. Then the recovery software will load and read the on screen instruction.

Second if you do not have the recovery softwarem, turn on your computer and tapping F8 key. By tapping the F8 will load the advance configuration and select safe mode by using arrow up or down key and press enter. When completely loading the windows to safe mode click start, programs, accessories, system tools and system restore. Ok on system restore go to date where restore example right now is march 16, go to february or january and click any date that avaible for restoration click next and click again next.

How do i restore my hp pavilion dv 5000 to factort setting?

There should have been a recovery disk created or included when you bought a laptop. Insert disk if you have it and restart your computer with the recovery disk in the CD drive. Make sure all your documents and personal data are backed up. When the computer restarts it should start restoring your computer to the factory default. There will be a wizard to guide you through the process.
If there is no disk or got lost,then follow this steps:
1.Save any files or folders on your computer with flash drives. Drag and drop files onto the icon of your flash drive.
2.Go to "Start" > "Restart" to reboot your netbook.
3.Hold down "Alt" and "F10" when you see the logo on the screen. The recovery menu will load.
4.Hit "Enter" and then "Next" to see your recovery options. Choose "Factory Restore" to set your computer back to factory settings. Follow the instructions on the screen.
5.Choose your time zone and language when the customization menu appears. Reboot when you are prompted.
6.Restore your saved files from the flash drive.

After downloading Firm software update and shut down, comp gives whirring sound and didnt reboot - no picture on screen.

Place the system restore cd in the drive and restart. Hold down the C key til you see can tell it it restarting from the Cd. Once the screen to restore comes up, press the esc key... go to the top of the screen see the menus... choose the first aid utility. run an first aid diagnostic. choose repair if diagnostic finds issues... After you finish with the repair. quit and restart. Hold down the eject key while restarting. Remove restore CD.
let computer continue to restart. See if it gets beyond the whiring sound and if it boots up correctly.

Let me know if this does not work.
