Computer wipe restore factory settings


Which operating system ????...

Computers are indispensable tools when they are working correctly.
When they fail to function as desired, they can become quite a headache.
Occasionally after installing a new program or making other modifications to your Sony Vaio Desktop PC, unexpected changes may occur within your computer.
Completing a system restore allows you to reset your computer's files to an earlier time when it was functioning normally.
Everything you need to complete a system restore is included in your Sony Vaio Desktop PC.
Log in to your computer as administrator.
The system restore requires that you are logged into an account with administrator rights.

Click on "Start" in the lower left corner of the desktop.
Point to "All Programs" and then to "Accessories" with your mouse.
Point to "System Tools" and click on "System Restore."

Click on "System Restore" under "Pick a Task." Click on "Next" in the system restore window.

Select a date and time to which you want the system to restore.
Use the lesser than and greater than symbol on your key board to change the selected date. Click "Next."
Click "Next" after confirming your selected date.
Your computer's files will now be restored to the selected date.


Restore a Sony Vaio Without a Disk
Five or ten years ago, the only way to restore a computer after something terrible happened to it would be to reinstall your operating system off of restore disks.
These disks would come packaged with your computer and would be the only way to return your computer to normal in the event that you downloaded a virus or some other calamity occurred.
Nowadays restore disks are a thing of the past.
You can easily restore your Sony Vaio without a restore disk.

Restart your Sony Vaio if it is already on.
If it's off, turn it on.
Press the F12 key on your Sony Vaio keyboard.
This will enter the computer into the built-in restore mode.
Note that depending on the model of Sony Vaio, you may have to press either the F11 key or the ESC key to enter this restore mode.
This must be done before your operating system begins to load.
If you see the Windows logo appear on screen, you'll have to restart and try again.

Choose the option on screen that is most appropriate to your needs.
You will be presented with three options: you can either create a set of recovery discs, attempt to repair your operating system's installation, or restore your operating system.
Repairing your operating system will attempt to fix your computer without deleting any of your personal files.
Restoring your operating system will delete everything on your hard drive and return your computer to its original factory settings.

Wait for the restore process to complete.
Depending on the type of restore you've tried, you may have to wait as little as a few minutes and as much as an hour or more.
When the process is finished, the computer will automatically restart itself.

How to get modes back


hello,

I'm wondering which mode are you trying to get. If it was working fine before. You can get it back by doing a system restore. System restore will restore your computer back to a known good date when the computer was still working fine.

Here's how to do it:

1. go to Start or pearl
2. Search System Restore or click on Programs > Accessories > System Tools > system Restore
3. The system restore window will open.
4. Select the date when your computer was still working fine (modes fine). Then follow the on-screen instructions.
5. Let it restart and check if it fixes the problem.

If it doesn't fix it, please let me know and provide me with the details. Thank you very much!

I have broken.openco after scanning with malware bytes. i have scanned several times with this but keeps comming back how can i get rid of this?


Try to download and install AVAST antivirus Home Edition. It is free. Besides, avast has an option to scan at boot time so it can detect and delete viruses and malwares before they can cling to your system memory. You can download it here.

How do erase partition and wipe clean, saving operating systerm


the only way to erase a partition and wipe it clean while saving the OS is to use Symantec Norton Ghost (or a similar product) and create a Ghost image before you delete the partition and restore it after you have deleted the existing partition, recreated a new one and formatted it. then restore the OS from the ghost image.

Was deleting unnecessary programs off home computer and may have accidently deleted a program but not sure what it was. The problem is whatever I deleted does not allow me to update any programs such as...


Best Bet:

Try going to Programs->Accessories->System Tools->System Restore

Go back to before you began removing the programs. Also, remember whenever removing programs always use the uninstall feature, just deleting them can leave a lot of junk in your registry, cause possible corruptions and lead to sluggish PC performance.

Restoring WIndow Vista


No, windows backup will only restore your data, for example My documents, Desktop, User settings, and Outlook data.
To restore the system you will need a windows install disk, or if your computer has a restore partition(like many dell, packard bell etc.), you can use the restore windows utility from partition.

System Restore...


Did you set a restore point lately. You do need to do that occasionally

(for example after removing a virus)

Maybe your restore point is not valid anymore

you can do Your first port of call for System Restore problems should be the System

Restore Troubleshooter, which you'll find here. However, it's also possible

that one of your Restore points has become corrupt, in which case you'll
need to disable System Restore. This will delete all existing Restore points

and then re-enable it. To do so, right-click My Computer on the Start menu

or desktop and choose Properties -> System Restore tab. Tick the 'Turn off

System Restore on all drives' and click Apply - you'll be told that all

existing Restore points will be deleted, so click Yes, at which point the

Restore points will be removed. Now remove the tick and click Apply again to

re-enable it.



You can now test that System Restore is working properly by creating a new

Restore Point and then immediately attempting to restore your computer to

that point in time. Hopefully, now you'll be successful
