Did you get a recovery disk with the computer? If not, is there a recovery partition on the HD? Read your bios post screen when you first turn it on. If there is a recovery partition it will be an option (right besides the setup and boot options). It will be assigned a function key. Which ever function key it is, hit it as soon as your post screen comes up (first screen you should see when you first turn the computer on).

This will put you in the recovery program, which will reinstall windows for you.

If you do, place the recovery CD in your computer and turn it on. If it winds up just loading your hard drive's OS, then restart the computer and enter setup (usually one of the function keys or del.. it will tell you on the post screen). Once you are in setup, goto the boot tab and change the boot order to CDROM being first (it will most likely have the harddrive first). Once you put CDROM as first boot, the computer will load your recovery CD. Just exit and save out of setup and let the CD load the recovery program.

Hope this helps,

How do you restart a computer so it is brand new like when you brought it


You need to restore your computer to the factory settings using your system restore disk. If your computer did not come with a disk your system should have asked you when you booted it up the first time if you wanted to create a system restore disk.

I just brought a new laptop ( toshiba, satellite) turned it on for the first time set few settings quickly then closed the lid for a few moments when i opened it up again it was off so i turned it back on...


Upon turning it on keep pressing the F8 key to obtain the repair screen
Choose start windows in the safe mode with the COMMAND PROMPT
When the screen shows C:/ type in chkdsk /f /r
Then restart the computer
If the windows still won't start take the unit back for exchange or have the BOOTMGR installed

Problem restarting Desktop computer


The computer battery needs to be replaced. The computer is missing its BIOS settings, which are stored on the computer battery on the motherboard. It's about the size of a nickel, and pops out easily. Take it to your favorite computer store and get a new one - about $8.

Computer won't show start up screen, only shows different colors ie. green, then pink, blue... i took out the battery and started it without the battery and got the same results.


First you need to reset the PRAM:
  1. Shut down the computer.
  2. Locate the following keys on the keyboard: Command, Option, P, and R. You will need to hold these keys down simultaneously in step 4.
  3. Turn on the computer.
  4. Press and hold the Command-Option-P-R keys. You must press this key combination before the gray screen appears.
  5. Hold the keys down until the computer restarts and you hear the startup sound for the second time.
  6. Release the keys.
Next you need to reset the PMU (power management unit). This will depend on the model of your iBook so follow the instructions on Apples page:

Hope this gets you going again

All the best
