I want to restore my hp pavilion dm4 to factory settings


Are you specifically talking about "settings" or are you wanting to restore the PC to its original factory condition? Original Factory Condition can be done with your system restore CD/DVD that you created from the restore partition or from the restore partition itself. In either instance you will lose any data stored if you choose to do an erase wich is the only option to bring it back to its original factory condition.

I want to restore my Advent 7211 back to factory settings but have lost the recovery disk.When I switch it on it goes to start up but then switches off. I think the HDD has been corrupted, any help...


You can get another Recovery CD from the laptop manufacturer, otherwise you need a Windows installation CD that matches the Windows version of the Windows label that is attached to the bottom of your laptop. This label also has the product installation code for installing Windows on your laptop.

Dimension 4600 won't reset to factory settings


These model dells came with a recovery cd rather than a partition. You will need to call dell and have them send you a recovery cd and then use that disc to restore your computer to factory defaults.

Cannot access full factory restore


Open up your Control Panel (in Start menu), click on 'Performance and Maintenance', then in the left-hand column click on 'system restore'. On the system restore screen choose 'Restore my computer to an earlier time' and follow the directions to go back as far as you want.
I'm curious why you need to do this, though. If it's because of a virus, make sure the virus is gone or your problems wilkl just come right back!
I would certainly consider ordering the manufacturer's recovery CD's any way in case the hard drive ever goes bad. It's cheaper than a anew set of 'Windows' CD's. Good Luck!

Slow computer -how to restore a Fujitsu Siemens Amilo Pro v1000


If the units are running slow, you can do some maintenance on them to speed them up.

First, run defragmenter on both units.(in Safe mode)

Download ScrubXP which will automatically clear your temp, cookies and TIF files.

Download CCleaner and run it.

Run your Anti-virus program: download the free version of AVG. (Great virus protection.)

Other programs to use are SpyBlaster and Winpatrol, all of which are free.
This should help, if you feel that you need to format and restore the units, youcan do so. But try this first.
