Restore to previous settings

How do I restore my Compaq Presario laptop to previous settings? The OS is Windows XP and I suspect I may have maxed out on a segment of emmory playing a stupid SIMS game. ;)

Hi Tangeeh, you can use windows system restore. Click the start button, slide to all programs & slide up to Accessories, than slide down to System tools & click System Restore.
Pick a date backwards when you know your PC ran better. Tangeeh what I think you realy need to do is clean your notebook. This will increase the notebooks overall peformance. Click the link I have posted to install a free program called RegCure.

Or you can use this other program free for 30 days.

If you want your PC to run as it did when you first bought is you can run your system restore CD from Compaq but you will loose all your personal data.

Good Luck & Kind Regards.
If I can be of more service, just ask.

Mike

    Tangeeh, after I made my post above than I noticed you also added more information.

    Considering what you added you do need to run your system restore CD. Or your windows CD. You'll have the option to re-install windows & you should not loose your personal data. Load the system restore CD into your cdrom drive. If your notebook does not display the message: to load from CD press any key.... Than you'll have to restart the notebook & press the F8 key every two seconds, this will bring up a boot menu. Use your keyboard up & down arrow keys & choose the cdrom drive. Press enter. Follow the instructions from the restore CD or windows CD & choose to re-install windows only. When finished please update windows. If your missing any drivers & the restore CD does not have them on a compaq CD than go to this link for your Presario V5005us. You might want to book mark the site for later use.

Can i restore my compaq presario cq60 notebook to factory setting without cd ? its vista


hi.
there are two ways to completely restore settings of a computer:
1- enter Bios of your notebook (by pressing "delete" repeatedly") and select restore to manufacturer's settings.(or load from manufacture settings). THIS CAN RESTORE SETTINGS OF YOUR HARDWARE.

2- for restoring settings of Windows:
restart your notebook and before windows starts up (showing "windows starting") press F8 repeatedly.
then choose "load from last good configuration".

When i tried to start windows i get this error message every time ''windows failed to load because the system registry file is missing, or corrupt'' , i have a compaq presario vs210us... Can any tell me...


What OS are you running? For XP and Win2000, get the OS install or upgrade disc for your version of Windows. Boot from the CD. (F12 just after the POST will let you choose the boot location. Try again if you miss the timing.)

Enter the recovery console and try to restore the old registry. See http://support.microsoft.com/kb/307545 for the XP commands involved.

Windows 7 install discs also have some recovery options when you boot from the CD/DVD as a LiveCD. But it is called the System Recovery (you can build your own System Repair disc with a working version) See the following for more information:
http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/668-system-recovery-options.html and then System Restore:
http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/700-system-restore.html
Vista has something similar but didn't have an option for building a System Repair disc to my knowledge.

You might lose some registry information (depending on how often you had the system backup the critical information). These methods basically roll back to a previous version.

Good luck.

HP Presario c700, power on automatically.


If this is a new issue you can revert, or go back in time when the computer was working fine my using 'system restore'

To use System Restore to restore Windows XP to a previous state, follow these steps:
  1. Log on to Windows as Administrator.
  2. Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, and then click System Restore. System Restore starts.
  3. On the Welcome to System Restore page, click Restore my computer to an earlier time (if it is not already selected), and then click Next.
  4. On the Select a Restore Point page, click the most recent system restore point in the On this list, click a restore point list, and then click Next.

    Note A System Restore message may appear that lists configuration changes that System Restore will make. Click OK.
  5. On the Confirm Restore Point Selection page, click Next. System Restore restores the previous Windows XP configuration, and then restarts the computer.
  6. Log on to the computer as Administrator. The System Restore Restoration Complete page is displayed.
  7. Click OK.
If you successfully restored your computer to a previous state, and the computer is performing as it should be, you are finished.

Also there is a setting under 'power options' on the advanced tab that controls how the pc shuts down when the button is pressed, go and check to see how that setting it configured, by clicking on the drop down button06e3d7f.gif

Hello,
Press F8 after you restart( before the Windows screen). And choose Last good configuration. If it does not work Repeat in Safe Mode and try to restore to a previous Restore point.
If nothing works you might have to reinstall Th OS.

Hope it helps.

Safe mode....unsafe.


Your PC is stuck in safe mode startup

I would suggest using the Windows Disk, if you have one, go through normal windows installation. At the point of installation just after pressing F8 it will detect windows exists and offer you a repair option press R to repair
