Just want to know how to reset it back to factory settings

Before starting of - make sure you have backups of precious data - it will erase everything on he disk.

It involves restoring the Windows factory image - which is some cases is located on the harddisk on an extra partition. It involves starting the laptop with one of the Fn keys pressed. (Such as F1, F2 etc) If not located on the harddisk, it requires reinstalling Windows using the CD and license key.

I HAVE ASROCK 775Dual 915 GL motherboard with processor pentium 4. i am facing a problem with BIOS when my computer starts, and my computer time gets changed. i have updated my bios version ut still have...

If your BIOS does not retain date & time info and forgets drives configuration, the usual reason is a dead battery. You should look over your motherboard and you'll see a tiny button-like battery (like the ones used in alarm clocks).
You should power off your pc and get the battery out of its socket (you can lift it up with a little flat screwdriver - be careful not to harm the motherboard) and replace it with a new one. You can find it anywhere, hardware stores, supermarkets, electronics stores. Just make sure its the same type, there will be a code on it, something like CR2015, make note of it and go find another battery of exactly the same type.
Power up the pc again, go to BIOS setup and set the time and date, then run autodetect of your drives.
Be warned though that the life of the button cell battery will be shorter if you unplug from the wall your pc for a long time.
Hope this helps, bye

I have Intel 845 series motherboard & I want to format my PC but when I put xp cd inside & restarts & press enter the boot doesn't start now how could i format ?

You have to change the BIOS settings to boot from your CD drive. It must have been set to boot from harddisk.
To do this you have to change the primary boot device from Harddisk to CD drive. When you restart your computer press DEL or F12 or TAB or F1(any one...Depends on your BIOS see manual or try all) to bring bios. In bios go to boot device priority and set the CD drive to boot first.
Restart your computer, it will boot from CD drive and XP setup will start.

Hope this will help...cheers:)

ASUS K8V-MX Motherboard recognizing 320 GB SATA harddisk. Why?

It could be that your BIOS needs updating for this motherboard. Take note of your BIOS version when your computing is booting. Try hitting the Pause key to freexe the screen, but if no luck go into BIOS and see if the BIOS version is listed. You typically get in BIOS by hitting the "Delete' key on your keyboard when the computer starts up and the first bunch of words appear in white characters (might be a light grey)
Go here:
Latest BIOS (note its a beta version ie not formally released) is
K8V-MX Beta BIOS 0501
Latest beta BIOS.

Power failure right when it gets to one

looks like a windows-related problem.
try if your keyboard works at all by entering bios but do not change anything. just quit saving no changes.
does it work?
if yes, possibly a windows error.
to check :
- try booting from a windows-cd(XP), not from harddisk, without going through install process, execute the repair process instead.
- reboot from your harddisk in safe mode.
everything o.k.?

if still the problem, and don't have any personal data you might loose on harddisk(hdd)
reinstall windows xp anew, but this time let it format the hdd fully, then go on installing a clean, new copy of win XP.
when still facing the problem, plse come again

BIOS cannot detect SATA harddisk

Most motherboards have multiple plug-ins for Sata drives. Try another plug in. This will typically solve this type of issue.

Lose of Master Harddrive

have a check with the BUS cable once try replacing the BUS cable which is connected to the HARDDISK .. there may be some problem in the IDE BUS CABLE...

you can fix that by replacing with the new one ...

this problem is not where related to BIOS ..
because if there is any problem in the IDE BUS CABLE means you will face this problem ..

there is one more case it is not oftenly seen actually ..

ie if there is any problem in harddisk means you will face this problem ..

normally the harddisk will work without any problem for 10+ years ...

in very special cases the harddisk failure occurs which is called as catastrophic failure ie the harddisk makes some hissing noise before when it attempts run , this problem may be due to some manufacture defect or if the harddisk is not being used for a long period of time (may be years) ...

so just have a check with things everything will be alright ..

thank you
any doubts you can reply me
i am always here to assist you
please rate my solution
have a nice day
