Restart your computer. In the first couple of seconds a black screen will appear where based on the maker it may give you an option such as Press F1 for startup options. anyway you want to pick one of these options and try to find 'boot options' and/or 'boot from recovery partition'.

if that doesn't work- click start>programs>your computer maker>look for anything that mentions 'recovery' and run the program.

Need to factory set my easynote tk due to accidental hard drive erasure

You will need a backup recovery disc to reload your operational system. Since the hard drive has been wiped clean there is no other way to do this.

Ctrl + F11. But you must make yourself a backup of everything you want to keep before that, the factory restore wipes it all - just copy the files to an external hdd. No, that program is a virus that has infected all and it's too late for anything else. If you need to recover the files and you can't start Windows properly just use a Linux Live-CD like

My asus 1001ha is infected with viruses & wont do anything how do i restore to factory settings?

If it is a bad virus that won't let you do anything on the computer, follow the instructions on this link. If you can install programs on your computer, follow only steps 7 and 8 from the above link.

If you still want to restore it to factory settings, you will need the restoration CD/DVD that came with the laptop, put it in the drive and boot from it to start the restoration to factory settings. If you don't have the restoration disc, you will need a Windows installation disc to install a clean copy of Windows and wipe the HDD. Same process, put disc in and boot from it then follow the instructions for Windows installation (you will need the drivers disc though).

I dont know how to start the process of restoring factory settings on my laptop which is a - packard bell easynote r1005 - i cant seem to find the keys to start the ball rolling for a reset and i really...

To restore factory settings the process comes in 3 flavours from the factory. One way has a hidden parition on the hard drive. When you boot up you press and hold the F11 key (may be differ on yours) and it starts the pacardbell recovery manager. This should give you the options to save off documents and settings but will wipe out the windows directory and everything under it so don't save it there. It will give you a few other options on what to save or install. This can take it back to factory new but save your stuff. The next method next two actually are booting off of the recovery dvd/cd. You may have gotten one wit the unit or were expected to make one when you got it. This tends to be a bit more agressive when restoring and usually wipes out everything on C drive. Some versions will have the option of just doing the windows directory but don't count on it. The usual problem with the dvd's is that the drive won;t read them. The last option is to just use a windows install cd. You do have a valid windows serial number so as long as you match the type it should work. Sometimes you may need to find a OEM version to get the serial to work.

You sould be able to use the boot/F11 method. As long as the os isn't Vista that usually works just fine. Vista installs had errors.

I want to restore my system


Seting your computer back to factory state is just a "Press-of-a-button" away. If you notice, there is a small button near the power button on your computer that has an icon of either an arched arrow or some kind of a rectangular shape icon. Press that and it will guide you through One Key Recovery (OKR). Select One Key Recovery among the three options. Then select Restore from Factory Backup and wait 'til it is completed and your computer is fresh as new.

This will wipe all of the programs, files, documents and everything that YOU have saved/installed on the HDD so make sure to backup all the important data on the HDD.

Format/restore computer to factory settings

Press F11 at system startup to get to the NEC recovery menu. From there, you can restore your factory settings. However, a "destructive" recovery will wipe the hard drive, including your personal files. Best to back those up first before performing the recovery.

Hope this helps - remember to rate :)
