Put in the restore disk that came with the machine. Restart, and hold down the C key, until you see the propeller. It should launch the installer from the DVD. Select the language and proceed through the windows until you get to the "select the destination" window. Look for the "option" button, lower left, and click it. Select "Erase and Install. Proceed. After you finish, reregister, and run the updater.

Note: You loose EVERYTHING this way. You could select ":Archive and Install" w/saving setting button selected, and that replaces the system, but leaves everything else.

How can i rest a password on my truvision dvr30


The TVR 30 is shipped with one predefined user for the system administrator and
seven predefined standard users. The default system administrator logon uses admin
as the account name with a default password of 1234. You can modify the admin
password but not the admin user name. The seven predefined standard users are
labeled User1 to User7 with a default password of 4321 and level 4 access. The
administrator can customize the seven standard users and define their privileges.
Use the Users screen (shown in Figure 20 below) to manage users.
Note: When accessing the main menu for the first time, the system lets you pick
either an admin user or a regular user (User 4) by default. If you select User 4, enter
the initial default password of 4321.

I clicked completely restore system to factory defaults, but it does not respond


It's probably wanting you to insert some restore discs into the cd/dvd drive.

Some manufacturers leave it up to you to create the restore discs when you first purchase the system. Some put it on the hard drive for you, which sounds like is not your case. Don't sweat it because most times the restore discs that users have to create don't work.

Have you tried doing a System Restore? Click Start/Programs/Accessories/System Tools/System Restore. Select a Restore Point (date and time) before you started having problems. Unlike System Recovery that takes you back to factory defaults and deletes everything, System Restore does not delete your data, documents, music, pictures, videos or programs (unless the program was installed after the Restore Point you selected).

If System Restore does not work for you, then you can always Reinstall your Operating System.

Setting my lg laptop back to factory settings


You did not provide the full details of your problem.
Generally, there is no option to reset laptops or computers to factory setting. Though you can perform two operations on your system to undo certain changes, or erase any permanent change.

1. SYSTEM RESTORE.
If you perform any changes on your computer that you want undone, selecting the option 'System Restore' automatically restores your system to an initial time it worked perfectly.

My ps3 comes up with an error when i am trying to do the new update for FIFA 10. Comes up with error 8002ae22... can someone help in normal people terms on how to fix this


If you receive an 800 series error code on the PLAYSTATION 3 system, we recommend performing the following steps which may correct the problem.
Install the Latest System Software Update

To check what version of the System Software is currently installed on your PLAYSTATION 3, from the PS3 Home Menu go to Settings > [System Settings] > [System Information]. The system will display the System Software version number. You can check online to make sure you have the latest version installed.
Restore Default Settings

From the PS3 Home Menu, go to Settings > [System Settings] > [Restore Default Settings]. Once you select Restore Default Settings, you will see a list of settings that will be restored. Scroll through them and press the X button to restore the settings. After the operation is complete, you will see the initial set-up screen that appeared the first time you turned on the PLAYSTATION 3 system. You will need to go through the initial set-up process before you can use the PLAYSTATION 3 system.

Im trying to reset the internal clock. My father messed with settings so therefore games wont play on certain date. Such as PGA Tiger Woods 2005 RTE Calender


first do this

Settings > System Settings > Restore Default Settings


Restore the system software to its default settings. Follow the on-screen instructions to perform this operation.


After the operation has been completed, the initial setup screen will be displayed. Follow the on-screen instructions to perform initial setup of the system software.


Notices
  • When you perform this operation, the system software and the information for the user who is currently logged in will be restored to the default settings. Be careful when performing this operation as changes to the settings cannot be undone. Data loss or corruption is the responsibility of the user.
  • When multiple users exist on the PS3™ system, the information that is managed by users other than the user who is currently logged in will not be restored. Information that may be managed by other users and cannot be restored include the following:
  • - Sign-in ID and password for PlayStation®Network
  • - Bookmarks, history and settings added under in_browser.gif (Internet Browser)
  • - Information about the image set as wallpaper under in_photo.gif (Photo)
  • - Terms added using in_setting.gif (Settings) > in_console.gif (System Settings) > [Add/Edit Term], or predictive terms "learned" by the on-screen keyboard
  • - Keyboard or mouse settings under in_setting.gif (Settings) > in_peripheral.gif (Accessory Settings)
  • - Voice changer settings under in_setting.gif (Settings) > in_peripheral.gif (Accessory Settings) > [Voice Changer]
  • - Theme, color, background and font settings under in_setting.gif (Settings) > in_themeset.gif (Theme Settings)
  • Do not turn off the PS3™ system during this operation. If the operation is cancelled before completion, the system software may become damaged, and the system may require servicing or exchange.
  • During this operation, the power button on the system front and the PS button on the wireless controller are not active.
  • You cannot use this feature to go back to an earlier version of the system software.


if this nor work you have to hard reset but take all backup first inexternal hdd or pen drive.


Hard Reset procedure for the PS3 (as instructed by Sony CS).
Be sure to backup your settings/games saves by doing a System > Backup on your PS3 or you may lose your game saves! Also, this is a last resort procedure prior to exchanging/returning to sony.
1. Power Off the PS3 via the power switch in back and power back on w/switch.
2. Hold Power Button on the Front until you hear 3 beeps.
3. Then go through the initial setup and then run a full Format via System > Format. (will take approx 3 1/1 hours). You may need to have our AV cables ready if your using HDMI (in case HDMI isn’t detected after initial reset).
4. Restore your backup you made prior to doing factory/hard reset (optional, if you created a backup).
Hopefully this will solve your problems.

My playstation will not read dvd's and just recently stopped reading games. I'm just wondering how to reset the entire system


  1. From the XMB™ home menu, go to icn_settings.gif(Settings) > icn_syssettings.gif(System Settings) > [Restore Default Settings].

  2. Once you select [Restore Default Settings], you will see a list of settings that will be restored. Scroll through them and press the icn_btnx_color.gifbutton to restore the settings.

  3. After the operation is complete, you will see the initial setup screen that appeared the first time you turned on the PLAYSTATION 3.
    You will need to go through the initial setup process before you can use the PLAYSTATION 3.
IMPORTANT
The Restore Default Settings feature will erase any previously saved settings and restore all of the following settings to the default:
  • BD/DVD Settings
  • Music Settings
  • Chat Settings
  • System Settings
  • Date and Time Settings
  • Accessory Settings
  • Display Settings
  • Sound Settings
  • Security Settings
  • Network Settings
  • Internet Browser Settings
Read this next paragraph carefully!!!!!!
Also, do not confuse "Restore Default Settings" with the "Restore PS3 System" option (the next option down on the menu). The "Restore PS3 System" will not only restore the default settings, but it will also delete all hard disk content. (You will lose all saved content from your PS3 system's hard drive if you use "Restore PS3 System.)
