Need to reset to factory settings


•Place the first CD, labeled CD 1, into the CD drive of your computer.
•Press the power button to turn on your computer.
•Hit the ESC key on your keyboard when you see the prompt at the bottom of your screen. (This will appear before your operating system begins to boot.)
•Hit the down arrow key on your keyboard to select “CD ROM.” This will allow you to boot from the CD that contains the factory settings for your computer.
•Hit "Enter."
•Follow the prompts by clicking "OK." Your computer will inform you that taking this action will erase all saved data on your computer. Click "OK."
•Insert the next CD-ROM into your computer when prompted. Continue to do this until your computer asks you to reboot.

How do you Reboot a computer back to factory setting


Instructions Things You'll Need:
  • Factory Settings CD
    How To Use the Restore Factory Setting CD
  1. Step 1 Make sure to transfer all of the files you want to keep to a USB memory stick or burn to a CD.
  2. Step 2 Put the "Restore Factory Setting CD" into the CD drive. This CD was packaged with your computer.
  3. Step 3 Confirm you want to restore the factory settings. The computer will begin restoring all settings. Don't disturb your computer, as this process can take several hours. .
  4. Step 4 Reboot the computer to complete the process.
  5. How to Reboot Using the Computer Start-Up
  6. Step 1 Turn on your computer. Right away there will be a black screen. You can restore factory settings without a CD, too. This will reset your BIOS.
  7. Step 2 Press "F1" when the black screen appears to enter the setup configuration mode. You will be presented with a menu.
  8. Step 3 Select "Restore Factory Defaults." That's it. Your computer will do all the work for you. Like the CD, this process may take several hours.
