Depending on the model you can use disks it came with or hit F10 or F11 key as it boots. Should then bring you to recovery menu. Then just follow the menus.

Keep in mind it will erase ALL of your data.

Hope this helps.

Essentially you can either use the recovery disk or use a MS Operating System installation disk which will allow you to rebuild the system from scratch. You will also need to have the drivers for the system which you can download from the following link for free

I have a Gateway Laptop that is 6860fx, and I wish to do a factory reset on it. The reason is that the laptop is infected with many pop-ups.


factory reset removes everything
why not go to settings and just remove pop up setting --turn it off and delete pop-ups

How to do a factory reset on a dell latitude laptop


Actually called a 'Reformat'. You need the disks that came with it, or you need to make sure you have a Restore Partition on the hard drive with the OS on it.

Im trying to take my gateway m series laptop back to factory settings and im not sure how to do it. Do you have any suggestions?


Reformat the hard drive.

Go into the bios (press F9, 10, 11, one of those), and find System Restore. Make sure you back up all the files you want to keep, though.

I need to reset from factory my laptop gateway MX 8737


Hi there,
Your Notebook should have come with a Software Recovery DVD. Just put that into the DVD Drive and reinstall or reformat Windows. Warning: Bringing your Notebook back to factory settings will erase all the content on your HDD. Back it up if you want to save anything.

Complete restore to factory settings


why its not reading those disks is because the system is still there. To put it back to factory you will have to reformat the hard drive and reinstall the win operating system it came with. Any updates to the Win xp you have wont allow going back to begining as if it were a factory fresh/ or factory referb.
