    By "reset" what do you mean? Return it to Factory default (which wipes it clean and takes it to when it was new" ? What computer is it? Do you have the recovery CDs that came with the unit?

By a hard reset I take it you want to reset the bios, there are jumpers inside later pc's that allow you to do this or you can do the short cut and remove the power lead and open the case and find the cmos battery, remove it and short the positive and negative points in the battery cradle, use something conductive, I have used a small screwdriver to achieve this, contact must be made between the two points for at least 4 seconds, the reconnect the power and restart, you will then have to go into the cmos setup by pressing the delete key or you may have to press one of the following keys to get you into the cmos F1 F2 delete key escape key or f10
when in the cmos you will have to fix the date and the boot order so the hard drive starts first or the cd/dvd rom, I really hope this helps,
PS dont forget to earth your self by touching the metal casing of the pc, or buy a wrist static strap
either way be careful when working in and around the case
Cheers
Paul

HOW TO PERFORM A HARD RESET ON Treo 650


Performing a hard reset on a Treo 650will erase everything on the smartphone. Most people do this because of trouble with the Treo 650's software. There are several key stages to performing a hard reset. Follow these steps to learn how to do it properly.
  1. HotSync the Treo 650 to your computer to ensure that you have all of your information backed up. You will lose everything on your Treo 650 with a hard reset.
  2. Step 2 Press and hold down the red phone key on the right side of the Treo 650 keyboard until the Palm screen appears. This will begin the hard reset.
  3. Step 3 Let go of the red phone button when you see the Palm screen.
  4. Step 4 Read the screen prompt carefully. It will ask you to press the up arrow key to proceed with the hard reset or the down arrow key to abort. Press the up arrow to continue with the hard reset.
  5. Step 5 Wait for the phone to reboot. When it comes back on, it will ask you to select a language and walk you through the same introductory screens you saw when you first got the phone.
  6. Step 6 HotSync your Treo 650 to your computer. When prompted, select your old username to restore all of your contacts and information. This should complete the hard reset process.

How to make jumper reset on dell Latitude e6420


Doing a "jumper reset" only works with desktop computers, not with notebook/laptop computers -- to prevent a thief from "resetting" a stolen laptop.

Reset button hp pavilion


Hi,
HP Pavilion not available reset button.
A hard or forced reset erases all information in the computer's memory which may restore functionality. Resetting your computer forces the system to clear and reestablish the software connections between the BIOS and the hardware.

Performing a hard or forced reset might fix the following conditions:-
Windows stops responding.
Computer stops before Windows loads - no boot, blinking cursor on a black display, and errors relating to OS not found or a missing drive.
Display suddenly goes blank and stays blank.
Software freezes.
Keyboard stops responding.
The computer does not return from sleep or suspend mode.

Thanks..

HTC Touch lost the WiFi ability


I think phone needs software reset. Below is the link about performing soft reset and hard reset on HTC touch. Try soft reset first. if it doesn't work, try hard reset. If after hard reset still no success, try to flash firmware. But I think hard reset can resolve the problem. Note, that hard reset will delete the storage entirely, so backup any data befor performing those manipulations.

Soft & Hard Reset


Correct, a hard reset restores the PPC to its origional state. Soft resets are similar to rebooting your desktop computer. You can backup your device with either ActiveSync or the included utility. I don't have a device so I can't give you exact steps, but I believe what you are seeing is where the device will store the backup. You have to put it on a storage card in most cases, not back on the device.
