Hi bgreenejr,

Are you referring to the BIOS or OS?

If you’re referring to the BIOS settings, you can do this by accessing it and selecting "set to factory default" from the menu. The most common way to access it is by pressing the DEL button upon boot up; there are however, a lot of branded PC and laptops may use a different button like F2 or F12, etc; if you’re BIOS is locked, of course you’ll need the password to log-in.

Another and common method of resetting it to factory default is by shorting the CMOS reset jumper located in your motherboard, usually it’s the closest jumper to the battery or the CMOS chip. This does not require any password, actually this is the method used if you forget your BIOS password. I would suggest that you consult your motherboard or computer’s documentation on how to locate the CMOS reset jumper on it.

If you are referring you your operating system, the only sure way to reset it to default settings is if you do a clean install, that means re-formatting your pc and re-doing everything again, kinda messy, unless you can do a system restore that would revert it back to the original date and time when you first install the system, . Hope this helps

Cheers and best regards,

I just wanted to restore my pc to factory settings can you tell me how to do that I have a Sharp PC MM-20 Notebook?

If you have original Cd's just put the cd in cd rom reader and rebbot the laptop (be sure that in the bios is set the option and choose for first boot device "cd rom").
If you never had producers Cd's maybe your laptop has a recovery partition. You may want to refer to user guide or manual on how to restore factory defaults using recovery partition.
You can find user manual or user guide in producers website.
Finally, if you have not original Cd's nor recovery partition you can install windows using an original Cd you already have with original key. You will have to download the drivers for your laptop from producers website

Im trying to find out how to rebbot my laptop to factory settings because my main screen wont show i have to start task maneger to get to the net

Can you tell us what laptop it is, as all laptops have different systems

The most common way, you need to enter the BIOS Setup screen (usually entered by pushing "del" or "F2" on the splash screen (the very first screen you see when you start the laptop). Navigate (using up, down, left, right arrow keys and enter) the pages until you see Load Setup Defaults. Select the option and confirm.

However please note that it will completly revamp your laptop to how it was when it came out of the factory. Any data you wish to keep safe please back-up on an external device as it will be lost.
