When the computer boots, you should see a screen with something like this:

"To start the Product Recovery Program, press F11".

So, press the F11 key at that time and you should get steps to put your machine back in (more or less) factory condition (the software will be --- unfortunately, there's no such thing as a time machine for the hardware ;-)

If you have files you want to keep, BE SURE and back them up by copying them somewhere before you do this. In most manufacturer's "recovery" programs, the first thing they do is re-format the hard disk, so any files and programs you've installed since you bought it will be *GONE*.

Good luck with your recovery!

I want to change language of my ibm netvista desktop


The IBM Netvista should have options to change the language settings built in if you read the manual but generally, if you follow these instructions it usually works.

Go to the BIOS utility and change the language:

To run the Setup Utility program, use the following procedure.

1. Shut down the computer and wait for all lights go off.
2. Start the computer.
3. When the Setup Utility prompt appears on the screen during start-up, press F1. A Setup Utility menu will appear.
4. Follow the instructions on the screen.
5. When finished, select System Summary to verify that any configuration changes have been accepted.

I was given a IBM netvista and I have to setup the hard drive what keys do I hit to get into setup


Hi,
Make sure the computer is off, hold down F1 and start the computer, that should get you into the BIOS setup.
If not hit the F1 key when you see the IBM logo, you may have to repeat this until you get in to setup as you have to be fast with an IBM machine.
