If your computer supports it, depending on the model, you may be able to access the recovery partition on startup by pressing F8 repeatedly. When accessed, this will give you the option to restore your computer to factory defaults.

Other models require a restore disc. These should be made from within the operating system if available (again, depending on model). You may also be able to get your restore discs from the manufacturer.

I need key for driver restore


Davis,
You can restore the system to factory conditions by following the information below.
Dell Factory Image Restore The Dell Factory Image Restore tool replaces PC Restore. Access it from the F8 boot menu.
Start the computer and TAP the F8 key. Once the options appear on the screen you can choose Repair Your Computer and follow the prompts to restore the computer to factory conditions.
CAUTION:
This utility formats the operating system hard drive partition prior to restoring the factory image. This means data on that partition is deleted and cannot be recovered.
If the customer creates a second partition with a third-party utility, Dell Factory Image Restore is not affected as long as the image partition is not removed.
Thank You,

I want to restore my hp pavilion dm4 to factory settings


Are you specifically talking about "settings" or are you wanting to restore the PC to its original factory condition? Original Factory Condition can be done with your system restore CD/DVD that you created from the restore partition or from the restore partition itself. In either instance you will lose any data stored if you choose to do an erase wich is the only option to bring it back to its original factory condition.

HOW CAN I RESET THE HP OMNI 100 BACK TO ITS FACTORY SETTINGS


You will have to get a factory restore disk and if you already have one place in the DVD or CD tray and start the computer follow the on screen instructions to restore the computer back to its original condition. Some PC's have a separate restore partition on the C:\ drive you can go to my computer and tick to open go to C:\ and see if there is a partition for this. It should say recovery or restore. If you do not have this option you may order one from the factory or go to their web site and download a copy of the original software. NOTE: people when you buy a computer and have this option to download restore disk by all means do so right away. Also store you factory disks where you will find them if ever needed.
