Hello

You can do a System restore to a date that is close to the original. You can do an OEM restore, in All programs the manufacturer should have installed it's software for reinstallation. Or lastly you can do a system restore from you Restore CD's. When you purchased the unit a set either came with it or you were instructed on how to prepare them. Use these for a complete system restore.

That would depend on the operating system that you have on the computer.. if u hav a windows xp operating system.. you need to run the system restore on your computer back to the date where you got it or not exactly on the date you got, probably a few days after you got it.. computer have save points.. your going to use the save points to restore your computer.. take note, new installed software or new items saved on the computer may be removed or deleted on the system.. the computer will go back to the old setting that it saved on that save point..

you can access system restore on this path

Our computer died. I had backed up to Toshiba 1TB external hard drive using NTI backup now EZ. Trying to restore pics, programs etc to new computer. Getting error that says it can not find on on external...


You have an issue - if my understanding is correct ' you are trying to restore your files, programs etc., to a new computer.

Backups are meant to restore the files and windows operating system etc. on the same computer the backup was created from. If you bought a new computer, it cannot do any restoration of the backup file from the hard drive.

if this is not the case, you need to provide more information for anyone to help.

How to factory restore sony vpceb42fx


Try this:
http://www.withsteps.com/275/restore-a-sony-vaio-pc-to-its-factory-settings.html

In this tutorial, I'll show you how to restore your Vaio PC to it's factory settings. In other words how to restore your computer to it's original settings (in the exact state you bought it).
For that you have to:
1. Back-up all your data. Restoring to factory setting means to erase all data and reinstall Windows, drivers and preinstalled applications. If you have a single drive (C:) you have to backup your data to external drive or disks.
2. Start VAIO Recovery Center. Click on Start button and then click on All Programs. From the program list select "VAIO Recovery Center".

7. "Are you sure?" If you made backup for all your data and really want to restore your Vaio as it was when you bought it you have to make sure that have it plugged in to a stable source of energy and press YES.

8. So ... next you should sit back and relax. Your computer will start showing the next messages
Shuting Down

Please help me restore my toshiba laptop to factory defult


In order to restore your toshiba, you will need the restore disks that were included or that you created when you bought the laptop. Make sure all your documents and personal data is backed up because once you start the restoration everything will be lost. The computer will be exactly as you purchased it from the store.

Insert the first restore CD/DVD into the laptop and restart the computer. It should automatically load but if it doesn't, let me know and I'll talk you through how to get the computer to load from your CD Rom first.

Bought used and want to restore to new condition so I can make it all mine


You should check the "my computer" window to view the avaible hard drives. You may have a hard drive partition call restore or something close to that. If you do, then restart you computer and look for an F key number to press for restore. This will allow you to restore the computer back to an Out of the Box state.

Factory restore


Call the manufacture and see if they would be willing to send you a restore disk. Also not a cheap way but you could by new windows xp and re-install it. System restore could get you pretty far back but it doesn't allow you to re do the whole hard drive. What is the operating system?

Restore backup files


You should have everything saved ("backed up") on dvds now. Your next step is to pop in the restore discs that came with the computer unless you have a vista machine that isn't a toshiba or dell because vista machines (like HP) makes you create your own.

pop in your disc, boot to cd, and press next a few times... it will delete everything and get the pc back to the first day you bought it.
