    You can obtain the Restoration Disk if you wish. The disk is free. The shipping and handling is not. In the US it's $17 for a 5 to 7 day ship. $24 for a 2 to 3 day ship. Call the toll-free phone number for HP Support 1-800-474-6836. If you are not in the US, this is the HP Support Worldwide Contact page,http://welcome.hp.com/country/us/en/wwco...

You need the discs to do that. Or you could purchase an Operating System disc and reinstall the OS.

I bought a used thinkpad a30p it has lot of stuff on it i do not want .i have no recovery disk. want to set it back to factory spec.....how


Your best bet would be to Uninstall any programs you do not want, using control panel, add / remove programs. Then create a new user with administration rights and delete all other users. Go to explorer and explore the hard drive folder tree and look for folders and files that are left behind. Without a restore disk it is best not to do much else. Even if your computer has a hidden drive with install files on it, you still need that disk to access them. There are free programs on the net to help clean unwanted un-needed files and registry items. Hope this helps.

I would like to restore my machine to it's factory settings. All software was preloaded 2 years ago and a windows disk was not included with the machine. How can I restore my system back to the factory...


Go to the Acer site and you should be able to find a link to a section that will allow you to purchase a full set of disks to restore it to factory defaults. Be careful buying them off of ebay as most of those are just disks that contain drivers and not windows. The ones from acer should cost around $20. The web page is a little hard to find but it is there. See link below.

Unless you did a full system backup when after you loaded Windows 7 Home Premium, you will not be able to restore the system back to factory settings without losing W7HP.

How can i reset my dell optiplex 280? To factory specs


You will need to obtain a Dell Windows XP installation CD. Unfortunately, these discs cannot be bought from the local computer store, but you may have luck posting a request on Craigslist.

Recovery disks, Factory specs, pda files and pcmcia?


thanks for your smile
recovery disc is used for recovering your operating system when your pc is having problem.
restoring back to factory default means the settings of the computer when you received the computer from the shop. in other words default settings.
pda files are personal data assistance files.
pcmcia card is same as lan card( also known as nic card, ethernet card) of your pc. pcmcia card is used in lap tops.

I need to restore my computer to factory settings


If your PC is still under factory warranty the manufacterer might do it for you. I did not have the restore disk but eMachines surprised me. by sending me a shipping box and then paying the shipping costs both ways. The PC was restored to factory specs and back to me in 5 to 7 business days.

You will need to include your Windows OS password.

If your PC is out of warranty most manufacterers will sell you a restore disk for about $20 plus
shipping cost.
