Con I restore my HP M8200n to factory specs?


Sure if you have the restore disc if not you can get one from the factory. Or a Windows Operating System disc will also work as well. You will have to download driver files if your using XP disc. Win 7 works great for this type of situation loading drivers is easy with Win 7 recommend if you have the resources to handle it. John

How do you restore the factory settings on the acer aspire 5532?


Well, first acer brand is cheap, and they don't give you a factory restore disc or a restore partition drive like most other laptop. However they give you the option to make a factory restore disc yourself, there is a program in the laptop ( browsing through your start task bar) should be a program such as acer recovery management, from there on use that program and make a retore disc. Once disc is created, you can go ahead and procced to restore your laptop in which you need to change your boot option to disc during startup of the laptop in order to boot from the recovery disc you just made.

I want to restore my factory settings


Do you have the restore discs? If not order them or go to Toshiba site and order them or download them if that is the option they provide for you. Also if you have the restore disc then just insert the restore disc and follow the on screen directions.
Make sure that the boot order is set to DVD or CD as the first boot and hard disk as the second boot this should be already set in the BIOS. Order the discs if you do not have them imperative. Thanks for using FixYa!
P.S. If you cannot get a restore disk from Toshiba I use this site for all restore discs. Note you have a PayPal account it is free to get at PayPal.com I use PayPal because I know it is a legit site. Click Here

Recovery disks, Factory specs, pda files and pcmcia?


thanks for your smile
recovery disc is used for recovering your operating system when your pc is having problem.
restoring back to factory default means the settings of the computer when you received the computer from the shop. in other words default settings.
pda files are personal data assistance files.
pcmcia card is same as lan card( also known as nic card, ethernet card) of your pc. pcmcia card is used in lap tops.

I need to restore my computer to factory settings


If your PC is still under factory warranty the manufacterer might do it for you. I did not have the restore disk but eMachines surprised me. by sending me a shipping box and then paying the shipping costs both ways. The PC was restored to factory specs and back to me in 5 to 7 business days.

You will need to include your Windows OS password.

If your PC is out of warranty most manufacterers will sell you a restore disk for about $20 plus
shipping cost.
