I would be happy to help explain how to reset your laptop.

  1. If you have all of the Recovery Disks Dell shipped with the system, you need to first put the Dell System Recovery disk in the DVD ROM (the one that says the Windows Operating System on it).
  2. Start the computer and press F12 to go to the Boot Menu. At this menu, select the optical drive or CD ROM drive, it may be listed as either one.
  3. Now it should boot to the cd to begin the reinstall process. If you see the splash screen for Windows come up than it did not work and you should shut down and try again.
  4. The next step you may have to do is press"any key" to boot from cdrom.
  5. A screen should come up now preparing the Windows Installation. Simply follow the prompts, making sure to wipe the previous windows installation completely before continuing with the current install.
  6. When the installation is complete you should verify that all the drivers were loaded completely. Assuming this is Windows XP (which is the default OS for this system), go to Start>>Control Panel>>System>>Device Manager and make sure no yellow circles with exclamation marks are showing.
  7. If so, you will have to go to the Dell website to download the drivers. Go to the support section and put in your express service code or use the autodetect feature and it will tell you what you have available to download.
When in doubt: download and install everything. The worst that can happen is it will say it isn't compatible and won't install. Also ensure you run ALL windows updates, even optional ones.

Good Luck,,

How do i factory reset my gateway laptop so the person im selling it to will not get any of my personal information?

Common is the same on most laptops either F10 ALT+F10 F8 Or could be F12
I give the selection since even though say for example only a Win XP F10 may work but on a Win 8 its F8. You would need to try each til one gets you to the factory reset screen. Repeatedly hit the F key before the Windows logo appears. Try holding the ALT key if just the F is not working. Sometimes it takes a few tried before it decides to work.
Once you get things reset I would log on and run disk cleanup that's included in Windows How do remove the Windows old folder This specifies Windows 7 but is the same for all since XP and even 8. this will remove all traces of any left overs that factory reset may have skipped which I found does happen.
After this it will be as if new.

You need a recovery CD to restore the laptop to Out of the Box condition.
You can get the recovery CD for your model laptop from the laptop manufacturer's WEB site.
I cannot give you this link because you did not provide details of the make and model of your laptop.

Cant seem to find anyone selling 'new' ignition modules for a 95 nissan sentra. the forum that Im a member of says that this is what I need to change in the distributor. Ive searched in the internet only

All auto parts stores sell only "new" modules. I have never ever heard of anyone selling a rebuilt module. I have seenn on a few fouriegn cars were you can only get a rebuilt distributor in order to get a module for a car, but they do come with the new module. So as long as you are going to a wel known parts supplier such as O'reilly, you should be fine.

If you have the recovery cds then put in the first one and it should start the recover process, this will make it look like new. Some laptops have a recovery partition instead and will ask you to press a key when it turns on to recover the laptop.
