Restore factory default


Check to see if there is a system restore setup for a previous date, this will allow you to roll-back the changes made. You can find this under the control panel.
If you want to restore back to the original windows settings, you need to reinstall windows from DVD or CD, these are backups made when you first got the laptop.

How do i set a recovery programe to go back to factory settings


Your going to need the factory disks to do this. The factory disks have drivers and all the original software that came with your laptop computer when purchased. Some companies are turning to the web to provide factory disk downloads at a certain web site to save money or shipping of factory disks for their computers. In any case you will have to have the factory disc to restore to factory settings and software on your laptop.
Once you obtain that then it is simple from there. Place the disk in the tray and boot it will begin the process of installing your machine all over again. If you have files and things you wish to save do it before you load the disk for its factory restore. "You will loose any unsaved information"
That is mainly the right process to do this. "Obtain a Factory Restore Disk" John

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

Forgot password to acess< and or its still default setting. could you tell me what the wireless 700 routers default password is


Restore Factory Default Settings When you restore factory default settings to the base station, you clear your Internet connection settings and any special base station configurations that you have established. After the restore is complete, you will need to reconfigure your base station settings or restore these settings from a backup file. You should restore the original factory default settings only under the following circumstances: O You are experiencing serious problems with your base station, and resetting the base station does not fix the problem. O You cannot remember your base station password. In this situation, you must restore the factory default settings by using the Restore button on the base station, and then use the default password admin to log on to the Base Station Management Tool. To restore factory default settings 1. Open the Base Station Management Tool, and then click Management. 2. On the Management menu, click Back Up and Restore Settings. 3. Under Restore factory default settings, click Restore Factory Default Settings. While the original factory default settings are being restored to the base station, the Power light on the base station turns orange. When the light is solid green, the settings have been restored. If you want to open the Base Station Management Tool after the settings have been restored, type admin as the password on the Logon page. Do not attempt to log on to the base station until the settings are restored and the Power light on the base station is solid green. After you restore the factory default settings to the base station, you should navigate to each page of the Base Station Management Tool and reestablish the network settings you want, or restore the base station settings by using a backup file. For information about creating a backup file of your settings, see the following section. Be sure to establish your unique base station password as soon as possible after restoring the factory default settings to prevent unauthorized users from logging on. For more information, see “Change the Base Station Password.” please rate this answer, thanks
