Dear Jonny,
when you start your computer, press F8 while windows loads.
in next dialogue box click on NO to goto restore point, revert back to the restore point of the earliest date. You will get your factory setting back. if it does not work simply format get original version of windows format hard disk and reinstall windows.


Good Luck

Unfortunately, the Optiplex 740 did not ship with a Factory Restore Partition. You will need to manually reinstall Windows, Drivers and Software. Below are links to provide you with information on installing Windows XP as well as the drivers download page.

Hmmm, a puzzle.

The only way to disarm these alarms is with
the factory remote or turning on the ignition.
To turn off the factory alarm.

Ok, do you have the remotes?
If so, let's ID the system.
Go to www.KEYLESSRIDE.com & use th fcc #s
on the back of it.

If not try this:

Programming Factory Security on GM Cars and Trucks
Instructions for programming the GM factory security systems that do NOT
disarm from the driver's door key cylinder. This programming is for the
cars and trucks listed below.

96+ Camaro
96+ Firebird
99+ GM Trucks
99+ GM Sport Utility Vehicles

Step #1 Turn the ignition on then off.

Step #2 Remove the radio fuse only (not the fuse that says acc/radio).

Step #3 Turn the key to the accessory position. When you do this you
will get two chirps from the door buzzer. Should you hear only
one chirp, your vehicle does not have factory security and these
instructions do not apply. You need to hear two chirps.

Step #4 Press the unlock switch on the door. This will give 1-4 chirps
depending on the program step. Continue pressing the unlock
switch until you get to the desired chirp setting.
1 Chirp - Security off
2 Chirps - Remote Only
3 Chirps - Factory Setting
4 Chirps - Passive Arming

Step #5 Turn the ignition off.

Step #6 Put radio fuse back in.

1. Turn off your compter.

2. Look for theOne Key Recovery button on your PC. It's near the power button.

3. Press the OKR button, wait until your computer turns on.

4. After Windows loading files you'll be routed on Lenovo One Key Rescue System.

5. Select One Key Recovery then, select restore from Intial back up.

Usually it will take 20-30 minutes for the whole process to be done. Once it's finish just reboot your computer.

If this fails, then call them.

http://www.lyberty.com/tech/hard_drives/WD_Caviar_WD400BB_specs/index.html

Above is the link to set the jumper on the 40GB to Slave.
Also, before it boots, try to get into the BIOS setting and make sure your compter can see both drives. If not, double check jumper settings for both drives. Turn off compter and change settings.

When computer can see both drives in BIOS, save it and let the compter continue to boot.

Hope this helps.

Computer doesn't recognize Sansa; Sansa not boot up


Try reflashing the firmware for your device you can find the latest firmware and flashing utilities from the SanDisk website. Make sure that you back your music up first because when you do this you are setting it back to factory settings.

ALSO:

Download the driver to your compter while you are at the SanDisk website

Not much to tell you other than putting the factory software back on it. Thats the chance you take when you flash any phone.

I dont know how to delete all the contacts


You could reset everything back to factory settings if your starting from scratch. Go into settings and find 'master reset', as long as your sister hasn't changed the phones default lock code when prompted for phone code enter, '00000' or '00000000' one of these is default. Then phone will turn off and reboot and will be as fresh as the day it was first purchased.
CAUTION: if there is anything you dont want to erase DONT DO THIS as it will erase everything back to factory default!
