If the previous owner ever formatted the disk, then they probably wiped out the hidden restore partion if one existed. This link will take to you to a restore disk ordering site. You can order the disks to restore to factory. $29.99

Hello, i have a dell xps m1210 laptop. i was using my computer and when i want to restore to factory settings i was using ctrl f11 combination and restoring back. but i now installed windows 7 on c drive....


No the hidden partions rely on the main partion to have some files still intact to complete a repair of the operating sytem then restores the files back to thair factory settings, to put xp back on you will need the factory recovery cd or dvd. If you buy a copy of xp and install it then ust eht recovery it should restore it to factory with drivers as well.

How to reset toshiba laptop to factory settings. Without original disc


Toshiba laptops from mid 2007 onwards dont have a recovery disc supplied with a purchase of a laptop. Instead, Toshiba has added a hidden partion on the hard drive which contains the same files on a recovery cd / dvd.

To reinstall your laptop to the factory settings / "out of the box" settings, please follow these steps. It worked for me, and should work for you.

ALL DATA WILL BE ERASED ON YOUR HARD DRIVE IF YOU PROCEED. YOU WILL NEED TO ENSURE THAT YOU HAVE THE POWER ADAPTER PLUGGED IN. DO NOT SWITCH OFF OR RESTART YOUR COMPUTER DURING THIS PROCESS.


1) Hold down the power button for 10 (ten) seconds to switch off your machine.

Please note: Holding down the power button on the machine forces it to switch off. Any unsaved data will be lost.

2) Press and hold the 0 (zero) key and at the same time, tap the power button once to switch on your notebook.

3) When the machine Starts beeping; release the 0 key.

4) When prompted by the warning screen; select Yes to continue with the system recovery.

5) Select Recovery of Factory Default Software; click Next.

6) Select Recover to out-of-box state. Click Next again.

7) Click Next to Start recovery.

I hope you find this step by step solution helpful for you.

Thank You

How to format DELL Vostro 1014 Laptop


If you wish to FORMAT your hard drive so you can re install the OS.
Put your Windows disc into the CD/DVD drive, boot the computer and press F2 (if that does not work try CTRL+ALT and enter) to enter the bios. Change the boot order to boot from the CD drive first.

Follow the onscreen instructions to Install the OS, you should get the option to delete the existing partitions and then to FORMAT.

How do I reset my Dell Optiplex 360 to factory settings?


back up all of your data(music,documents,videos)before you do this..if you can't boot up then use ubuntu,slax or other types of bootable cds. also be sure to download the drivers from dell.com put them on a flash drive just in case automatic updates don't get it to set it back to the factory setting you are going to have to get a xp installation(asuming it is xp,or what ever disk came with your comp)the disk should say operating system on it.what you do is put the disk in and boot off of it.if this message don't come up 'press any button to boot from cd......' then your going to have to go into the bios and change the cd drive before the harddrive.if the message does come up hit any button and wait for the blues screen.after it is loaded hit enter f8.if a screen says existing operating systems hit esc(on that screen there is a option to repair the os but you have to know th command lines to do so).if not and it goes to the partion screen then delete the existing partion and create a new one.to do so go to the partion and (delete)hit d L enter.(create)c enter. after you have formed a new partion hit enter....it will format the drive(delete everything)after it is done formatting it will start to instal the os.in xp it will stop 2 times for your input.after everything is done loading you should be able to custamize everything and install things.in the bottom right hand cornor there should be a marker telling you to activate windows.click it and use the product key on the side of your comp(laptop under it)if there is none there try keyfinder.i will email it to you if you can't find .also be aware that you have to reinstall office, antivirus and other programs. so make sure you have all of the cd's.

How do i restore my lasptop to the factory settings


To restore your acer to its factory installation status (formats C: and removes all data) press ALT and F10 repeatedly on first boot. This should take you to the acer restore program which is partioned onto the hard drive.
Alternatively use the acer e recovery program to create a set of boot disks which will allow the same operation.

A full "factory restore" involves booting to the restore CDs (or hard drive sys restore partion, used by some manufactors) and following the manufactors instructions.
A Factory restore will result in all DATA being wiped, it really does mean "like the day it left the factory".
