RESET TO FACTORY SETTINGS


What type of Laptop ? and operating system on it ?

Restoring your laptop to factory settings can take up to an hour to perform, depending upon the type of laptop and operating system on your machine. Prior to performing a system recovery, you should remove any external peripherals, such as ExpressCards, PC Cards, and USB-connected printers and hard drives. Turn on the laptop. Press the "F8" key until the "Advanced Boot Options" screen appears. Select "Repair Your Computer" using the arrow keys. Press the "Enter" key. Choose your "Language," then "Next." Login with an administrator-level username and password. Click "OK. Select "Dell Factory Image Restore," then "Next." Tick the check box next to "Yes, reformat hard drive and restore system software to factory condition." Click "Next." Click on "Finish" after the computer has concluded the factory restoration. b> Restore on an HP b> Insert the HP recovery disk. Restart the computer, and press the "F11" key. Press the "F" key to "reinstall factory settings." If your computer's operating system is damaged, you may only see "perform a full system recovery" as an option. In this case, press "R." Insert any disks if prompted by the restoration program. Otherwise, permit the computer to restart as needed. b> Restore Via Disks (Generic) b> Insert the "Recovery Disk" or "System Recovery Disk." If you have more than one disk, make sure you insert "Disk 1" or "Part 1." Press any key to boot from CD if prompted to do so. Choose a "Full System Restore," "Restore Factory Settings," or another option worded similarly. Confirm that you want to perform the restoration. Press "Next," "Yes," or "OK," as needed. Press "Finish" or "Restart" when prompted by the computer. Hope this helps.

Stops printing half way through


I have a HP C-4180 All-in-One that did the same thing. I went into "add & delete programs" in the Control Panel, & trashed the printers program. I then unplugged the printer from the CPU, & reloaded the Printer Program like I did when I bought it new. If it just started, you may first want to try system restore, & set your computer back to a day when the printer worked properly.

I AM UNABLE TO ADD MY PRINTER BACK ONTO MY COMPUTER AFTER REBOOTING THE COMP. i DO NOT HAVE MY START UP DISK AND I AM NOT COMP. SAVVY.


Did you reboot (restart) or did you do a restore? If you did a restart or turned off the computer and then turned it back on, I'd check for a bad cable. Many printers can be reset by unplugging the power and the USB cable (from both the computer and the printer) for a few minutes.

If you returned your computer to the original configuration or rolled back to a system restore point, then I can see losing your printer drivers.

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?product=445441&lc=en&cc=th&dlc=en
will give you the drivers for most operating systems. Win7 has the drivers in the operating system.

If you use a Windows OS and your computer hasn't given you found new hardware dialog box, check if your cable is good and properly connected. (If it is attached through a print server, you may need to directly connect it to the computer to load the drivers.) Frequently, a bad USB cable or USB port can be identified by changing where you have the printer connected.

I hope this helps.

How to make an HP Pavilion mx50 computer new like you just bought it?


Backup all your data & music & bookmarks & E-mail to an external disk-drive, or to DVD-writable disks.

Take the "System Restore" CD-ROMs that were shipped with your computer, and reinstall Windows.

If you have lost that set of CD-ROMs, telephone HP, and order a replacement set of "System Restore" CD-ROMs. Cost will be $20 for the disks, and $20 for courier-shipping.

My HP PSC printer won't print at all. It has new ink cartridges and prints off the test page no problem but the printer & computer aren't communicating


Go into Printers and Faxes check to see if the HP has a tick against it

If not right click on the printer and click on make default

Go to properties and hit Test Print

If that fails go back to printers and faxes and delete the HP

Add a Printer in the Printer & Faxes section

And when asked tell it you have a disk , put your driver disk in the PC and let it load

When it is happy re-boot and see it the printer is seen by XP on the start up.

If it does then let it finish and do the Test Print routine again

How to reset HP 1320N to factory default


Make sure you record your printer's settings before performing this procedure. Holding down the printer's Green print button briefly will print any configuration information.

a. Turn the printer power off
b. Press and "hold" the green "go" button whilst turning the printer on.
c. Continue to hold the go button for at least 5 seconds and until the amber
attention light turns on (triangle with ! in the middle), this should occur
before 15 seconds elapses.
d. Release the go button.

from http://www.pcreview.co.uk/forums/thread-2290821.php

The answer byteguy gave above would be the procedure to restore and HP Computer to factory defaults.
