Sorry, no command prompts. You'll need either the recovery disc you lost or an operating system disc.

I would like to erase my hard drive and make my laptop new again how can I do that


Most laptops come with a "recovery" disc or feature which allows you to restore the laptop to its original factory condition. This will often include erasing everything on the hard drive (HDD) and reinstalling the original operating system and included software. In most cases anything you've saved to the HDD will be lost unless you make a backup first.

Another option is to use a Windows installation disc. When the disc is inserted (or if you boot from the disc) you will have the option of reinstalling Windows. You will be warned that all data on the HDD will be lost in the process. If you choose to continue Windows will reformat the HDD and perform a clean installation.

Choosing the option to reinstall Windows from a Windows disc may require an active internet connection or you may need to provide drivers in order for certain laptop hardware to perform correctly or be recognized by Windows. It is also important to choose a version of Windows which your laptop is capable of running.

I need to reset my laptop


Kevin,

If you want to restore it to factory condition, you will need your recovery discs which came with it. If you do not have them, Lenovo has a tool to create your own recovery discs you can download from their website. If your laptop is shot and you don't have another PC handy with a CD/DVD burner, you may just want to buy the recovery discs from them.

I have a Gateway MT-6451 laptop and want to restore to factory condition. I lost the disk. Is there anyway I can perform this without the disk? Or a way to purchase the disk?


The disc is critical when you want to go back to factory settings, check out www.ebay.com there are sellers that provide a lot of different restore discs, you might get lucky. The other option is check www.gateway.com see if the have the supporting disc.

My Laptop is very slow


Run a system restore back to factory default setting.

Start system and hold down the f11 key till it rings a bell.

This will start the restore program.

Follow the system prompt. But remember to backup your documents and files.

Good luck.

Why doesn't my HP pavilion laptop write to dvd+rw discs? I'm not very computer literate but the tray for the drive indicates that it accepts this type of media and yet it fails to recognise it when I try...


Hi, depending on the age of your laptop, some dvd writers will only write to either DVD+ or DVD- discs although they will all READ both (how confusing is that!) Try using DVD- discs - this may solve this problem.

turn on and repeatedly tap F12 and it should come up with a menu with the choice of factory reset if not you want to do a restore it will say it wont delete data even tho it does then hit yes wait 3 hrs and boom it got nout on it but what it came with or what was on the back up

if thats not what ur lookin for go to ur hard drive right click and go to format that wipes it clean so to do that you gotta have a windows system disk

hope this helps

Check the manual if you have to use a Recovery Disc to restore your PC or if there is a short-cut that you will press when you booth your PC to restore it to factory settings because most PC's have these. If there is no recovery disc and a shortcut, reformatting it is the only way to restore your laptop to factory settings.
