If you do NOT have a copy of this disc, skip to step 3 for further instructions. Once you restart your computer, a screen will appear with the words. Press Any Key to Boot From CD. Once you press a key, a screen will come up containing instructions to format your hard drive and restore the original factory settings. Follow the on-screen prompts to finish the installation. Once the restore is complete, remove your Recovery CD from the disk drive so that your computer does not try to boot from the CD again. Restart your computer to complete the restore. 3. If you do not have a System Restore disk, then your computer should have a recovery partition on your hard drive, separate from the main partition of the disk. Unplug all external devices and restart your computer. When the loading screen comes on with the Windows logo, press Alt+F10 together five times. This will bring up the system restore menu. Follow the on-screen prompts to restore your computer back to the factory settings Hope this helps.
To do a factory resore and remove all data look at the boot up menue it will tell you to push a key generally F10 or F8 to start factory restore.
However you can fix your slow pc with out doing that by running the command "msconfig".
Go to "run" from the start menu click run and type msconfig in it
next go to that startup tab and disable all. next look for sound and video drivers (nvidia, ati)that may need to be on. and turn them on (Things like adobe reader and ms office can be safely turned off and will still run fine)
I sure hope you kept a recent backup. Something has gone terribly wrong in there. If you didn't keep a recent backup, do you still have the Windows setup disk(s), or the Recovery disk? It sounds like you will need to do one of those. STRONG ADVICE_ DO NOT start to run a Recovery or Resoration disk NOR a backup and then stop it part-way done! I did that recently, and it took me 3 months to find a solution. It deletes all your partitions. Then nothing will work without much research and work. Once you start a recovery from a disk or a backup, let it finish! It may take awhile, but it's worth it. Don't panic. Just do a backup restore or a restoration disk, and any lost data, will be lost. People call using the Restoration CD a "reformat". It gives you a fresh install of Windows. Try to always keep a recent full partitions backup, it's worth it's weight in gold. Feel for you!
turn on ps3 press x to restore on 0 % quickly pull out hdd. then wait may
take up to an hour a message will come up to formate hdd. put hdd back
in and press yes to format this process worked with in seconds for me
but can take longer. it does work but you will lose all saved stuff but
online stats will still be on the system. good luck hope it works for u
New fix (possibly), and it doesn't take a laptop or a friend's PS3 to do.
Simply remove the hard drive from your PS3, and turn on the console. It
should display a screen saying the hard drive will need to be
reformatted. Then, plug the hard drive back into your PS3, and allow it
to reformat. Your save game data will be erased, but you should be able
to use your PS3 again. _________________________________________________________
whoever has a problem withe their ps3 needing to be reformatted
just take out your hdd when the restore comes up, then press x, it will
take a will before the ps3 tells u to insert a hdd to be formatted
(took me 12 minutes)
to do that you have to reinstall clean and format the drive during it ...the actual use of the recovery disk ..or the recovery installation with the F11 is causing storage of junk ...so if you really want a clean installation you have to use a installation disk of the operation system ..and boot from the disk to install and install the drivers and the programs manually after finishing the installation of the op.system .. so ...first save data...than look for a bootable disk ..and than download or retrieve the drivers for sound .image.devices like lan card and blue tooth ...and when you have all proceed in Xp case its easier to find a image and make a disk ...but for vista you have to ask someone or to buy it .. Let me know what you intend to do ..and I will advice you on..
For factory restore (All Data wil be Lost), tab the f11 key while booting the computer and enter PC recovery. Go to Advance options and Select the option of "restoring the system back to factory settings". in case u do not go to PC recovery after multilple attempts, there is no partition. Use Recovery cds.
System Resore : All programs > Accessories > System Tools > System restore. Select a date and Follow instructions(No Data Loss)
No dont take the battery out. try this. This works on laptops running XP and Vista.
Turn on the laptop, as soon as you turn it on press F8, this will take you to the system install function saved on a hidden drive on your pc.
Once there it will ask you if you want to do a recovery which pretty much sets the computer to settings for an earlier time period or a system restore. THe restore will reformat the hard drive and reinstall the the original software.
Make sure you pick the system restore function to wipe thedrive. It will ask you if u are sure and it will say something about it being a destructive, again that just means that you will have a factory reset computer again, just like new.
