If you cant find the jumper on the motherboard, unplug the computer and remove the coin cell battery on the board for about 10 seconds and then put it back in. Replug the computer in and it should let you in.

Try leaving the password blank. If you didn't assign one it shouldn't be required.

    Look for a jumper on the motherboard.

How can i restore factory settings without password


You can only restore the BIOS settings by selecting F2 on reboot. You need the password to restore operating system settings. Geek squad can break password.

Emachines c2881 unable to upgrade to sp2


Yeah, but you may not care for it.

I, personally abhor the automated feature of Service Packs.
I would rather download Manually, and see what I'm getting.

Takes longer?

Sure.

Cramming junk down my throat that I don't want, don't need, and it is just filling good space I need on my harddrive?

Uh, no.

What to download, there's so much stuff, and I don't know what I'm looking at?
Just download the basics.

What?

Okay, download manually one at a time. When you can't boot your computer, Yep, that one has got to go.

Acer, (Excuse me, I mean eMachines), wants how MUCH?
You told them you could buy a better, used, computer, for that much.

Right?
(I know. I know. Be nice. There's always time to be bad. Lol!)

Lemme see. What could Acer have done for 150 bucks.
Motherboard? Ummm. Harddrive and new genuine copy of Windows XP? Ummmm.

Naa!

They were going to pick your computer apart, to see what the problem was.

You stated " I even tried not using the restore cd but a copy of XP again...."

Meaning a;
1) NEW genuine copy of Windows XP?
2) Genuine copy of Windows XP from another computer?
What are we talkin' about here?

I want to know what the original problem was? Why were you using the Restoration Disk in the first place?

Post back in a Comment.

I have an e-machine E727 that i need to reset to its original factory settings. how do i do this?


Try pressing ALT+F10 repeatedly during the start up, if noting changes, then you will need to use the recovery discs that originally came with the pc to restore it. OR take it to any local computer repairer and ask them to do it.

I have a dell dimension 2350. I want to take it back to factory setting how?


If you have the original dell restore disc's
then insert disc one and reboot the computer

As it boots up enter the BIOS and in there tell it to boot from CD first.

It should then boot from the restore CD and from then on just follow the prompts.

ALTERNATELY it may offer as it boots up a "press F? to start restore" or similar use that option to start the restore process.

It would be very decent of you to consider the quality of our experts answers and judge them accordingly as you pass through FixYa.

Previous user apparently password protected Windows.


Well first off you can use the restore feature and it will only reinstall crucial windows files it won't mess with software that was already installed.

There are password recovery programs out there you would have to search for one and install the program onto a disc and boot of it (just follow the instructions)

WRONG RESTORE CD IN HP PAVILION A1330N


Alright, if I understand you...You possibly lost the original operating system disc for your HP Pavilion, and your daughter used a Windows XP restore disc, and now it is asking you to register the software?

AND you also lost the set-up software for your Internet provider?

No pass word


Hello,

If you have the original restore disk you can use that, if not - what operating system is it? Windows/Linux? XP, 2k, etc? I can guide you how to fix the problem.

I was trying to do a full system recovery


I HAVE A E-MACHINE. If you have any C/files they will be lost ... But go ahead and un-plug power for at least one-minute. reapply power and insert the 1st Restore disc and continue through all your discs. If it asks for administrator it will cue you to type in a NAME for the user and a password. Make sure you save the password somewhere. It sounds like one of the discs did not properly load and caused a failure.

Its worth a try. Lucky you have a e-machine. Other computers like Dell dont give you the restore discs and you have to pay for Windows XP or Vista. Or take it back where you bought it.
