Hi,
you can get the drivers for your notebook here before restoring the computer back to factory settings.

You may also need to have the OS installer for the computer to continue with the restoration.
Cheers!!

My acer tablet screen froze after I accidentally deleted apps that I don't need. How can I fix other than buying a new tablet


First, try rebooting. If that doesn't fix it you may consider restoring the device to the original factory settings. A word of warning...restoring to factory settings will take the tablet back to the way it was when originally purchased. All passwords, updates, music, photos, videos, audio recordings, apps and so on added after it was purchased will be deleted. So don't do this if you are concerned about losing the aforementioned data and files. To do a factory reset go to settings and look for a restore option. It may be under something like system restore, device settings, back up and restore or something similar. Once you find it, it should warn you that your device will be restored to factory settings and that all post factory apps, passwords, data and files will be deleted. If you still want to restore your device follow the instructions. You will then have to set everything up from scratch as if it was just purchased. I did this with a Kindle Fire. After the factory restore I reinstalled my apps, added all my accounts (email and so on), downloaded all my books, music, etcetera, and it has worked great since.

I want to restore my dell vostro 3500 to factory image


You'll need restore disks or if there is a restore partition on the hard drive then you can restore it from there. It will be less problematic to get some anti virus software to rid the computer of a virus.

Selling my Toshiba laptop and I want to restore it to default/factory settings. When this was bought did not come with a disc.


When your Toshiba Satellite laptop goes on the fritz, there are several instances where the best solution is to delete everything and start over. If your system frequently crashes or you can't remove a specific virus, you may want to restore the laptop back to original factory settings. While the easiest way to restore the system is to use the operating system restore disc, it is possible to restore the system without it. Each Satellite laptop also includes a hard drive recovery utility that lets you restore the operating system without the restore disc.

1. Take account of any files or programs you still want to use after the Toshiba laptop is restored back to its factory settings. Transfer the files to a backup location, such as a USB flash drive or external hard drive.

2. Restart the Toshiba Satellite laptop's operating system. Wait for the Toshiba logo to appear on the screen.

3. Press the key that brings up the hard drive disk utility menu. Depending on the specific model of your Toshiba Satellite laptop, the key will either be "0," "F1," or "F8."

4. Press "1" or click "Restore Original Factory Image." Click "Yes." Select "Next" to begin the restoration process.

5. Restart the Toshiba laptop computer when the restoration process finishes running. Follow the prompts that appear on the screen to set up the laptop's date, time and language settings.

6. Transfer the backup copies of the data you saved earlier back to the Toshiba's hard drive. Re-install any programs you need, such as your software firewall or anti-virus tool.

I hope you find it very helpful. Thank you for using fixya

Reset factory setting I take it?

Only do this after you've backed up everything on your phone. Restoring means it wipes the phone clean and starts over from scratch...

I am trying to restore my laptop to factory settings after some serious problems. essentially what iv tried to do is; started it in safe mode, started up the hp management centre thing, and i selected the...


Your laptop is waiting for the restore disk. Some PCs keep the restore data on a separate partition of your hard-disk, but it seems yours doesn't, therefore it's waiting for a disk version. As you don't have this on disk, you have a problem, but people are often too hasty to restore to factory settings.

Turn the laptop off by holding the power button down for about 5 seconds. You should still be able to power back on and start in Safe Mode as you haven't actually started the factory restore. Once booted, select system restore again and this time choose a restore point/date rather than the factory settings option. If you've been having problems for a while, try choosing the earliest restore point available and see if this solves the problem. You will need to update some of your software again after doing this - in particular, make sure you update your Anti-Virus software as recent update patches will have been lost.

Other than this you have little option than to re-install Windows and everything else from scratch, unless you can obtain the factory settings on disk from somewhere.

Hope this helps.

How do i restore factory settings?!


You need to provide more information.

Are you referring to reinstalling the operating system (such as Windows XP or Vista) back to factory defaults and erasing everything?

There are also factory settings for the BIOS such as selecting the default boot device and other options,

There are also "System restore points" within windows that lets you set the system settings back to an earlier point in time, as a troubleshooting aid. It works, sometimes depending what your issue is.

What do you want to restore... and why?

If you have a problem with how it's running that can be fixed without doing a restore. Usually by removing the offending software, or virus.

I have an Acer laptop to work on that has numerous viruses on it and I was wondering if Acer D2D recovery will remove them?


system restore vs system recovery:


a system restore will restore the system to a set point in time. this will not remove viruses.

a system recovery will reinstall windows to its original factory state by utilizing a recovery partition. this will remove viruses. however, it will also remove any data and software that has been installed on the system.

back up if needed but keep in mind that you could potentially be backing up viruses. especially if the user wants to back up music that was gotten from a peer to peer site such as limewire. this downloads are typically ripe with infections so do so at your own risk.

it is not possible to back up software.

System restore isnt restoring and rebooting into safe mode after


viruses often plant themselves firmly in the system restore files. They could also be preventing you from executing it. If you have "rogue programs" a system restore almost never works. You need to either clean the rogue programs in safe mode or backup your files and reinstall from scratch.

High Speed and viruses


Slowness can be caused by viruses.

Run a virus scan and see what comes up.
If there are viruses on the computer, you may want to consider Restoring your computer to factory settings.

But before you do that
Run a virus scan; go to Symantec and run it or download AVG free.

If you decide to restore to factory settings, I will be glad to help you. Understand, you will loose everything on the computer, and you will have to run all your programs again, set up your network connection and email. Very time consuming.
