System restore only compiles the software that was issued with this computer when purchased. If any was added you will need the program disc to reinstall

How to factory reset the device


There is a setup mode you can use to set the player back to factory default settings. From the main menu, just hit SETUP. In there, there should be an option called Load Default. This puts all the settings back to factory defaults.

From there, it's just a matter of deleting everything out of your Media and Data folders. Just plug it in to any computer and delete the contents of those two folders.

Phone keeps turning off and messages won't open.


hypagirl, your device has a software error, so you need to hard reset (by code or keypad) or soft reset or factory settings (by device settings), if your device is samsung try *2767*3855# for full reset, and if is nokia try *#7370# and default code is 12345, this both process will delete all data so first make a back up.Best of Luck. if my answer was helpful please rate it.

How do i reset my laptop to factory settings


What OS are you having?
Reset windows password as following instruction :

On XP you can try this:
Boot computer and press Ctrl+Alt+Delete twice when you See Windows welcome screen / login screen. It'll show classic login box. Now type "Administrator" (without quotes) in username field and leave password field blank, press Enter and you should be able to login Windows.
Now you can reset your account password from "Control Panel -> User Accounts".

On Win 7 or Vista:
Ctrl+Alt+Delete won't work, you have to use some windows password recovery software. I recommend Windows Password Reset .

Where can i download software for resetting my laptop back to original manufacturer settings


Hi, In this case to reset the laptop to original factory condition there are no softwares however your computer would be having a software built onto a partition on the hard drive which you could access by tapping the F11 or Alt+F10 key as soon as you turn on the laptop and you would get the Gateway recovery management window wherein you would need to select the option "Restore system to factory defaults".Or else you could also use the set of CD's that you had got with the computer. Note:-When reseting to factory defaults all the data on your computer would be deleted so please do take a backup of all important information before performing the steps also make sure all external devices are unplugged from the laptop.
Thank you for your patience and best wishes for your effort.

Hi, I am trying to reset my acer desktop to factory settings. I have tried the acer erecovery management restore and nothing happened. I have also hit delete at startup and clicked "restore default...


You can download the windows installation from the Microsoft website, and run it. Select the Custom Install option to run a Clean Install and select to Reformat the drive, this would clean the drive and reinstall windows, which would reset everything to the factory settings.
That's an alternate route to go if the recovery software on your computer is not functioning properly.
Hope this helps!
