Hey Andy -do you have your restore cd that came with your pc? If so, watch the screen when your pc starts and it should say something like F10 to restore. Didn't manufacturers use different keys. If you need more help or would like to try to fix your current problem let me know. If not and this solved your question, PLEASE rate this as fixed. If you need help just holler. Thanks and have a nice day.

Stuck windows startup screen


Please turn off the computer, start hitting F8 at the startup and then choose last known good configuration. If this does not work, choose Safe mode options. If nothing works, please restore it to factory settings by holding down CTRL key and hitting F11 key up and down at the startup.

Have you tried booting in safe mode? Turn off computer, then turn it on and immediately hit the F8 key repeatedly until you see Safe Mode as an option. Take the safe mode option. Once it boots up all the way in safe mode see if you can go to Start/Programs and look for eRecovery to restore back to factory settings. If not, you should be able to get it back to factory settings in spite of the error code. Boot your computer and and try the Alt+F10 key to get the factory setting started. Try Alt+F10 when you see the Acer Logo. If it doesn't work try it when you first turn on the system.

Want to restore dell 9400 inspiron to factory settings ,.forgot hardware reset pass word, i disconeected memory battery while replacing kry pad


Hi,

I you restore your laptop to factory settings, all data and software installed would be lost. i f you are fine with that or u have backed up the data already, follow the below process:

I have assumed that you have windows vista or windows 7:
  • Power off the laptop. Remove any peripheral devices such as speakers, printers or flash drives that are not necessary to this operation. Power on the laptop while holding down the "F8" key until the advanced boot options menu appears.
  • Move the arrow key to "Repair Your Computer." Hit the "Enter" key.
  • Select the language settings to be used for the recovery process with the arrow keys and hit "Next." Log in, if necessary. Press "Next."
  • Choose "Dell Factory Image Restore" OR "Complete PC restore" to restore the drive's original factory settings, and click on "Next."
  • Check the box next to the "Yes, reformat hard drive and restore system software to factory condition" option. Select "Next" and the computer will recover itself based on its configuration settings in the recovery partition.
This will take your computer on the day you bought it. You will get all application back which were pre-installed and will loose everything which you put by yourself.


Cheers!!!

Format dell mini 10


Hi

Do you really need to format your laptop
have you thought about or tried a system restore back to when it was ok
or back to last good know configuration

factory restore is so very permanent and you will loose any thing and everything that
you may of put on there like files or photo's
Because it will take it back to as you ist bought it and it will take a ages to set it all up again
how you liked it

But perfect if that is what you want

so please do burn anything to disk using a exterior drive or at least send over to a pendrive
or spare exterior hard drive

and to restore back to factory settings i believe that when you hit the power start up key also hit the F8 key at the same time and it should take you into the factory restore manager

then follow the on screen directions


good luck

many thanks

Following instructions for factory settings on asus notebook but when i hit f9 on start up nothing happens please help


ASUS netbooks have a Boot Booster which renders all activity obsolete, you need to disable the boot booster first.

First you need to access the BIOS/Setup Utility, on an ASUS machine/Motherboard you need to hit "Del" or "F2" not F9 at this stage.

Once in the Setup Utility, using your arrow keys navigate to the Boot options page. Using down arrow key navigate to Boot Booster option and hit Enter to disable. Once the option is disabled navigate to the last tab Exit, and using down arrow key to navigate to Exit and Save Changes.

Your laptop will then reboot and as soon as it does you may start to hit "F9" which will start the Factory Settings utility. You can then follow the on screen instructions to continue wit the resetting of your machine.
