You will not find system recovery options in control pannel, as it is either in the systm tools or you can get it from advance boot menu options by pressing F8 key on start up of computer ,
second way to get system restore is type system restore in start search box and it will show it , third way click on start then all programs , then accessories then system tools , you will find option of system restore.

Windows8 back to Windows7?


Unfortunately you cannot uninstall Windows 8 and go back to Windows 7 but you can:
a) Reinstall Windows 7 from the recovery media (DVD or USB flash drive)
b) Reinstall Windows 7 by using Advanced recovery methods
For option a:
Turn off your PC
Turn it on, keep pressing F12 before Windows logo ( you do that when you see the manufacturer's logo not the Windows logo)
After that you should see a boot-menu
Insert the disk
Select and press Enter on the option to boot from CD/DVD
Then click on Install now and follow the instructions
To remove Windows 8 and install Windows 7, you'll have to deal with the partitions**
For option b (it's only possible if you have created a recovery image of your system before Windows 8 upgrade):
Do what's in the images:
To get to this screen go to Control Panel and search recovery
1_27_2013_11_17_10_am.png
1_27_2013_11_18_02_am.png
In this image you see 2 types of recovery options, as you know we are on the option b), so you'll need to choose the first type of recovery options Use a system image you created earlier to recover your computer.***

**You'll need to make an unallocated space to which you're going to install Windows 7 in.
***This option is only usable if you have created a system image before upgrading to Windows 8.

Note that both of these processes may result in data loss, so please be sure to backup all of your data.

How do I make a recovery disk?


Which operating system ?

there are some you can download


If you computer crashes and your hard drive fails, you can lose a lot of data and spend a great deal of time trying to find all your discs and re installing all of your information.


It can be very difficult to find and re-install your operating system if you do not have the original CDs that came with your computer.


But if you create a recovery CD for your computer, the restore process can be much faster and quite easy.


Put the blank CD in your CD writer.


Click on the Windows Start button.


Click on the Control Panel option.


Click on Backup Your Computer from under the System Maintenance section option.


Click on the Backup Your Computer button on the Backup and Restore menu.


Select your CD drive from the drop-down list and press the Next button.


Click the Start Backup button to begin the backup process.

you might need to use dvd rw depending on the size of the backup

Automatic restart my laptop.Windows vista


Hi,

If you are able to boot the computer in safe mode, you can disable the Automatic Restart from the Control Panel.

Open Control Panel.

Click on the System and Maintenance link.

If you're viewing the Classic View of Control Panel, you won't see this link.

Click on the System link.

In the task pane on the left, click the Advanced system settings link.

Locate the Start up and Recovery area and click on the Settings button.

In the Start up and Recovery window, locate and uncheck the check box next to Automatically restart.

Click OK in the Start up and Recovery window.

Click OK in the System Properties window.

You can now close the System window.

From now on, when a problem causes a BSOD or another major error that halts the system, the PC will not automatically reboot. Rebooting manually will be necessary.


If you're unable to fully start Windows Vista due to a Blue Screen of Death error, you won't be able to disable the automatic restart on system failure option as described in the steps above.

Try the steps below:

Just before the Windows Vista splash screen shown above appears, or just before your PC automatically restarts, press the F8 key to enter Advanced Boot Options.

You should now see the Advanced Boot Options screen.

Using the arrow keys on your keyboard, highlight Disable automatic restart on system failure and press the Enter key.

After disabling the automatic restart on system failure option, Windows Vista might continue to load. Whether or not it does depends on what kind of Blue Screen of Death or other problem Windows Vista is experiencing.

Since you disabled the automatic restart on system failure, Windows Vista will no longer force a restart when it encounters a Blue Screen of Death.

Now that you have the STOP Code associated with the Blue Screen of Death, you can troubleshoot the problem:

The following is the list of BSOD error codes with troubleshooting, you can find the troubleshooting steps using the error codes in the MS website also..

How do i reboot my computer to the way it was went window first made it?? erase everything!!


You didn't mention what windows you are using but if you have a backup (may be there when you bought it) then here are some quick links

vista:
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-AU/windows-vista/What-are-the-system-recovery-options-in-Windows-Vista

windows 7:
http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/668-system-recovery-options.html

or just google "windows system recovery for more information"

Short of that, you would require a reformat/re-installation from disc which is a more complicated procedure.

Hi Heather,

It seems the Operating system on your computer is not functioning correctly due to a virus issue or some system file or registry entry is corrupted.

I would suggest you to kindly try to do a system recovery using the following method.

If you are using Windows XP, reboot the computer and Start tapping the F10 key on your keyboard repeatedly. You would get the System recovery screen. Just follow the instructions on the screen and complete the recovery process.

If you are using Windows Vista or Windows 7 then reboot the computer and keep tapping the F11 key till you see loading Windows files. When you get the Recovery manager Screen Click on Advance options and select the choice which says "Restore my computer to original Factory Condition" Just follow the instructions on the screen and complete the recovery process.

This will reload the original Operating system and the computer would be loaded to Factory settings.

Yes it is. But it used together with the Windows 7 Backup and Restore Center (Control Panel - Backup and Restore). If you set up the backup setting in this option, make a backup, and create a restore disk you will be able to restore your system in the event of a problem. Please note that it will restore the system as it was on the day you made the backup.
