Is it safe to go back to factory settings on my laptop

Absolutely! This is the way the computer came from the factory.

HOWEVER, be aware that;

1) Any programs you have downloaded, or installed, will be GONE.

2) Any documents you have downloaded, or made, will be GONE.

3) Any photos you have on the computer will be GONE.

4) Any videos you have on the computer will be GONE.

The Computer will go back to a time period BEFORE anything was installed, made, or downloaded, by you.

In this case you should copy all of your personal info off to disks, or flash drives, or an external harddrive.

Programs will have to be reinstalled.
You may also loose drivers.

Drivers are small pieces of software that allow the Operating System to communicate with a device.

Windows XP, and Windows 7 are two examples of an O/S.
(Operating System)

If you loose networking (Internet), or audio (Sound), or what have you, it will be because the Drivers are lost.

(They are still there, but Windows has lost the address to them)

If so, post back on here, or post as a new problem, and we''l help you find the drivers you need, and info on how to download, AND install.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

Can I format the harddrive on my dell inspiron 1464 and reinstallation win 7 with the DVD... If Yes how can format the harddrive from at the command prompt. please help thanks.

To set you computer back to factory fresh settings you will need to format the hard drive and reinstall the operating system and the drivers.
You will need your NEW Operating System disc or you will need to have the CD's that either you made when you got your computer or if your lucky you got the CD's that the factory furnished with the computer at the time you bought it.
If you do not have those CDs/DVDs then go the website of the computer manufacturer and search the website for "Recovery Discs", if they are not available
there you might locate them on Ebay.
1.Format the hard drive:
You do this by double left clicking on "My Computer",then double left click the main drive (normally C drive).
When the window pops open, you will choose "Format"
Keep in mind that once you format your hard drive you will loose all your files,programs,pictures,etc that you installed since the computer was new.
So make your back up on a portable hard drive,thumb drive,etc.
2. Once the formatting of the hard drive is complete you will need to reinstall the operating system along with the drivers.
Install the first disc and start the program.
That will bring your computer back to factory new condition as far as operating is concerned.

On my 1993 ford ranger i ran a self Diagnostic on it and came up with error code 512 which is Keep alive memory test failed. Could someone explain in detail thanks in advance

keep alive memory is required to save all the adjustments the coputer has made to compensate for engine wear/drive habbits/altitude/fuel system problems like vac leaks etc.
there is a base program in the read only memory that cant be erased by loosing power to computer this program is designed to start and run a brand new vehicle good enough to let it make its minor adjustments as it sees fit.sort of like an electronic fine tune.
that code you have means the coomputer is loosing its power supplie it needs to keep the random acces memory from being erased.
check the fuse ALL fuses some fuses feed other fuses they are not labeled as such on the fuse boxes.i would go for the cig lighter fuse first but like i said check them all.if no blown fuses then your gonna have to trace keep alive memory [or b+]wire from computer on back untill you find the broken wire etc.could even be a bad computer but i dought it

Forgot password to get on laptop

password can be reset but it will be the support provided by the technician . brand the computer have.if its dell call dell tech support number they will guide you through the steps to reset the password because for this super admin account needs to be activated.
if you do not want to spend money and want the problem to be fixed then system recovery will be the option. depends what operating system you have.
for xp comp its done by tapping f10 when you restart the comp , will get the recovery manager window, follow the wizard.
for vista or win 7 comp its done by using f11 when you restart the computer.
in doing system recovery you will loose all your documents and programs you have installed and the computer will only have the default programs and will be as good as new computer.

I need an ati driver hd 2300 for vista

Yes there is a solution, pop the restore cd rom (the one you got when you bought the computer) into the disc drive and restore windows, that will reinstall everything, but you will loose whatever you install after you bought it and you need to save stuff in your document folder to a thumb drive first. Or you can purchase the new window 7 OS. Always make sure you have an antivirus program running. Contact me if you need further help.

Have not used my finis mp3 for a while and have a new computer. when i plug it into my usb port the computer recognizes it but no lights come on and the device is dead

Try connecting your MP3 player into another computer, if you get the same problem, then there could be a loose wire connections inside or the program could be corrupted.

If the battery is completely dead, the MP3 player should turn on if it's connected to the computer so I don't think that the battery is the ONLY problem. There is another problem and that could be a loose wire or bad component.

You need to contact a repair tech to check it for you.

Thank you!
