How to you do a factory restore for windows vista


Computer users restore their operating systems for several reasons, such as the presence of corrupted files and to return the registry to its original state. This removes third-party software that consumes valuable memory space and also rids the PC of malware and spyware. Windows Vista, although not the most popular Windows operating system, offered users the Vista Business Edition and the Vista Enterprise Edition, both designed for use by businesses or individuals.

Click the Vista Start button to open the Start menu and click "Control Panel." Click "System and Maintenance" followed by "Back Up and Restore Center." Click "Back Up Files" followed by "Continue." If prompted for an administrative password, enter the password and click "Continue." This opens the Where Do You Want To Save Your Back Up? page. Check the radio button to indicate where to save your back up data. Options include "On a Hard Disk, CD or DVD" and "On a Network." Click "Next." This opens the Which Files Do You Want To Back Up? page. If you chose hard disk, you must save the backup to an external drive, such as USB hard drive or flash drive. Check the radio buttons corresponding with the types of file you want to save and click "Next." Click "Save settings and start backup." Continue when the Backup Complete message displays. b> Restore b> Remove all peripherals from your computer, such as scanners, faxes and printers. Do not remove the keyboard, monitor or mouse. Power down your PC. After shutdown, power it up. Hold the "F8" key during startup before the Windows logo appears on the screen until the Advanced Boot Options menu displays. Select "Repair your Computer" using the down arrow on your keyboard and press "Enter." Choose your language setting and click "Next." Log in as the user that holds administrative credentials and click "OK." Your computer manufacturer will offer you the option of restoring to factory settings. For instance, if restoring Vista on a Dell, you must select "Dell Factory Image Restore" and click "Next." On other computers, click "Next" after choosing to restore to factory settings. Select "Yes, reformat hard drive and restore system software to factory condition" if using a Dell.

If using another computer, select a comparable choice, such as "Reformat the hard drive and operating system to factory condition." Click "Next." Click "Finish" when the restoration is complete.

Im trying to reboot an emachines E620 to factory mode, but dont know how to do it.


You can click on "Start", then "All Programs", then click on "eMachines" and look for the "eMachine Recovery Management".

You will be able to select creating a Restore CD, Backup your files or just restore your computer back to when it was manufactured.

After selcting "Restore", follow the prompts and the computer will reboot and reinstall you Vista operating system.

Remember to back up your files you have created first, as they will not be saved as well as any programs you may have installed yourself.

Good Luck

Want to restore my dell latitude C600/C500 MODEL NO.PPO1L TO FACTORY SETTINGS


Is this windows XP or Vista or Windows 7? For windows XP restoring the Factory Setting is once you power on your computer Immediately Press and hold the CTRL button + Tapping on the F11 button at the same time, If successful it will show you the factory restore. Make sure that you did not reinstall your operating system before or it will not show that option anymore. For windows Vista and Windows 7 Once you power on the computer Immediately Tap on the F8 button for couple of times until it will show you an option Like Repair your Computer > If successful highlight the REPAIR YOUR COMPUTER > HIT ENTER > WINDOWS WILL LOAD SOME FILES > IT WILL SHOW YOU KEYBOARD LAY OUT > SELECT LANGUAGE (ENGLISH) NEXT> USE YOUR USERNAME AND PASSWORD NEXT> IT WILL SHOW YOU BUNCH OF OPTION > SINCE THIS IS DELL LOOK FOR THE DELL DATA SAFE EMERGENCY BACK UP THAT WILL BE THE LAST OPTION> Now if you don't have that and your last option is Command prompt it means that restoring factory image will not push through... Reinstall the Operating system using use Operating system disk and prepare your Driver Disk as well. HOPE this will help you . God Bless. :)

Starting the recovery from power up If Windows Vista cannot open and if the Recovery partition on the hard disk drive is functioning properly, you can perform a System Recovery by performing the following procedure:
  1. Turn off the computer.
  2. Disconnect all connected devices (such as the Personal Media Drive, USB drives, printer, and fax), remove media from drives, and remove any recently added internal hardware. Do not disconnect the monitor, keyboard, mouse, and power cord.
  3. Turn on the computer.
  4. Do one of the following actions depending on how Windows Vista was installed:
    • If Windows Vista came pre-installed on your computer, press the F11 key repeatedly when the first screen opens (the logo screen), until Recovery Manager program opens on the screen.
    • If your computer was upgraded from Windows XP to Windows Vista, press the F10 key repeatedly when the first screen opens (the logo screen) until Recovery Manager program opens on the screen.
    If Recovery Manager does not open, a set of recovery discs is needed to perform a System Recovery. Follow the instructions listed in Starting the recovery from recovery discs .
  5. Click Next .
  6. On the screen that prompts for Microsoft System Restore select No , and then click Next .
  7. The Recovery Manager gives you the option of backing up your data files. Backing up your files is recommended. To back up your files select Yes , and then click Next . Follow the onscreen instructions. If you do not want to backup your files, select No , and then click Next .
  8. After the System Recovery is complete, the computer restarts and continues into Windows setup. Complete the setup screens and wait until the computer finishes the setup. Then, turn off the computer, reconnect all peripheral devices, and turn on the computer.
  9. Before using the computer, update and protect it by reinstalling any virus and security software that was installed before the System Recovery.
  10. Reinstall any software applications that were added after puchasing the computer, and replace any files that were backed up.

Forgot my admin password


Hi smt35216,

Regarding the issue with your password, one possible option to resolve it is using the system restore using the windows vista cd or using the boot advance option.

When you turn on the system, after you pressed the power button to turned it on just keep on tapping F8 key on the keyboard (depending on the system model) until you see an option to boot to "repair my computer". Follow the instructions. When you are in the Recovery option, select system restore and restore the settings back to the working date.

If system restore won't work. Last resort is to reinstall your Windows Vista. You may also ask you computer manufacturer if they have a recovery partition of your hard drive to restore your computer back to factory defaults.

Regards,

Jeff
