Are you sure you just want to reboot? If just want to reboot go to the arrow at the bottom next to the lock, click on the arrow and then click on restart. If this is what you were looking for please rate this as fixed. If not, please explain in more detail exactly what you need. Thanks.

How can i reboot my acer laptop


Press Start(ORB at bottom left for vista/w7) and if you're on windows 7/vista, there should be a list button on the bottom right side of the start menu saying "Shutdown"(windows 7) and "Sleep"(Vista), click the list and click Reboot.

On XP you need to click the Shutdown button and before you click shutdown instead click Reboot(Green button If i recall correctly).

Want to know how to reset factory settings...dont want to back the computer up just want to reset it


If you wish to reinstall windows, you will lose all data. To do that, put your Windows XP/Vista/7 disk in your CD/DVD drive and reboot your computer. When it restarts, it should automatically boot from CD/DVD, but if not, press the key that your BIOS screen says to get to the boot menu. This is usually F12 or Esc. Boot from CD and follow the prompts. It should take about 30 to 45 minutes to reinstall a fresh copy of Windows. Hope this helped.
Thank you for using FixYa!

How do you reboot a mini laptop to a factory default in whats the right cd do you need to download something if it ask u to download stuff.


To reboot your mini laptop to factory default you need to re-install your OS (Operating System).
To do this you need your Windows xp, vista, or Windows 7 disc, and make sure you have your product key. Ie. Product Key: xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx (Most product keys are on the bottom of the laptop, and are 25 Characters).
Put the disc in your laptop and restart your computer. Boot from CD, and follow the prompts. It will ask you if you want to format your partition (Erase all your data including virus's) and format it. Then it will install your OS, and you will have factory default setting's and programs.

Hope this helps and if you have any further questions don't hesitate to ask me! Please don't forget to rate :), Thanks!

I have a toshiba A305-S6905 with- VISTA!! - sorry. New computer was working fine, now when i try to power it up i will get the toshiba screen and hthen it just goes blank. Tried f2 f8 and f12 along with C...


If this is new, I would suggest pulling your hard drive and letting the factory take care of it. It's a shame your having this type of issue with a new system.

Lets try something first though. Boot the laptop with your vista disc in it and hit any key when it tells you to. After windows loads, it should give you options, choose repair startup. This is of course if you performed this right. The computer is not going to give you a alot of time to choose when it says hit any key to boot from cd, so watch close. As soon as you see the Toshiba screen tap F12, this will bring up a one time boot order change menu, arrow down to the cd/dvd drive and select it by hitting enter, the computer will reboot and will try to boot from the cd. This is where you have to be watching for the hit any key message. If you get to the point where windows is loading files off the cd, there may be hope we can take care of this here. First try to repair the start....reboot and let the computer reboot without the disc....if it does not do it all again and this time choose to restore the computer to another time and pick a day or two before the problem. choose ok and let the laptop reboot and restore. See if it will reboot onits own, if it does, great.....if not get back to us.

Just trying to restore back to factory settings


take a genuine microsoft windows xp / vista install disc and put it in the drive. Reboot the system and boot off the cd. The windows setup will start. Delete the existing partition using the wizard, then install windows to the blank area.

Everything on the laptop will be wiped out, replaced by a blank installation of windows xp / vista.

If you don't have one, you'll have to buy or find a copy.

I ve just bought lexmark z2300 printer, how do i connect it to my laptop which is on wireless broadband with perlico? ta caroline.


You need to connect the printer with an extra cable which can join it through its 25 pin parallel cable. That cable then with USB end connect with the Laptop. and its drivers can be automatically detect by your Vista system.
For Vista 64-bit, the driver for printer and cable should be digitally signed.
Otherwise you need this method for Driver Installation in Windows Vista 64-bit:
The 64-bit version of Windows Vista is the first version of Windows that will only allow signed drivers and this restriction is built-in. For most cable drivers are unsigned and we request you to follow some prerequisites before installing the driver.
Preparing Vista 64-bit for Driver installation:
  • Using the F8 option: Press F8 key on your keyboard while booting your PC. You will get into “Advanced Boot Options”. Select “Disable Driver Signature Enforcement”
  • An F8 Advanced Boot Option introduced with Windows Vista—“Disable Driver Signature Enforcement”—is available to disable the kernel-signing enforcement only for the current boot session. This setting does not persist across boot sessions.
  • Note: Make sure to use F8 option every time you boot/reboot your PC before start working with MCS77XX.
  • Make sure that the User installing the driver must be a member of the Administrator group on the system. 
And for printer driver if you dont have CD then go through this link and follow the steps:

Let me know if you need furhter assistance, I will help you to run your Printer with Laptop.
