Hi,

If it is windows xp then the recovery option will be under pc help and tools ,this you can get it by clicking on start ???all programs ???pc help and tools.However if you are not able to find this option then simply turn the computer off and then disconnect all the external devices along with the internet cable and then as soon as you turn the computer on tap the f10 key repeatedly and then when you get the recovery page click on ok .Once you get the page where it has the advance option click on it and then select destructive recovery and then click next the recovery will start .

If you have windows vista then go to start and in the search bar type recovery manager and then click on it to start the recovery else instead of the f10 key tap the f11 key and then follow the same instruction as for the XP OPERATING SYSTEM.

all the best ....

My computer will not connect to my wndr3800 router but my computer will connect to my neighbors router


The first thing that you need to do is to reset the router. The reason why you need to reset the router because that will help you to fix the problem and to know the main problem/issue.

Steps

To perform a factory reset:
  1. On the back of your router, locate the Restore Factory Settings or Reset button.
  2. Using a paper clip or similar object, press and hold the Restore Factory Settings or Reset button for about seven seconds.
  3. Release the Restore Factory Settings or Reset button and wait for your router to reboot.
    After your router is finished with the factory reset, the Power light stops blinking and lights solid green.
    Note: The Power light on newer router models lights solid white.
    The factory default settings are restored.
  4. or you can visit youtube for the video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nUOcjDy02ts.

Note: Once you reset the router it will be back to factory default settings and you need to setup the internet connection settings on to your router


Once your done with the hard reset try connect your computer and if your computer will have the same issue connecting to the router it only means that the problem is on your computer / try to connect other device first before you reset the router

  • Sign out of your account on your eReader.

Restore to factory setting


If you want to completely reset it back to the original windows settings you must re-format your computer. This won't put the original programs back on it that you had before, but it will give your computer a COMPLETE reset. Meaning also that if you want to keep some data you must put it on some external drive because your hard drive will be completely overwritten.

If you want to get it back to just the factory settings, you could try to contact their customer services if they don't anything on their site to help you, although I would not recommend it. Factory settings aren't the best because they usually put stuff on your computer that you don't really want. Re-formatting is the best thing to do.
