It depends on the laptops brand, but ussually you will have to press some FX key to enter to the restore menu of the laptop. You can probe with different F's keys, like F8 or F12 that are usually dedicated to restore the laptop.

If you have system or recovery disks, place whichever into the DVD/CD Rom drive and boot from the drive allowing the system to format your hard drive.
If you haven't, that is more difficult. You must download an antivirus programme to clean your system before you can use the recovery partition on your hard drive as it will be infected.
Hope this helps.

Reset to original settings


Hello, Factory Reset is done by turning the phone off, holding the volume up button, holding the home button and then holding the power button till the phone vibrates and you can let go of the buttons. Use volume up and down to move through options and power button to select (don't have to hold, just press once). Select "wipe data" and then "factory reset". Select "yes" to delete all user data and wait for format to complete. Then power off then on and it should be back to original settings. Hope this helps.

I want to reset my compaq presario cq60-215dx notebook pc


Hi

More information needed.

What do you mean by "reset"?

If you mean you want to restore it to a previous setting before, for example, a virus infection:

start > all programs > accessories > system tools > system restore > restore my computer to an earlier time > select date and event on calendar and event schedule > restore.

If you mean restore your computer to factory default settings:

When the computer is booting, you will see, at the bottom of the screen, an F (function) key that takes you into the Recovery mode.

Recovery will wipe everything else off except Windows and the programs and drivers that the computer originally came with.

Hope this helps.

Somebody was using my Yamaha piaggero NP-V60 and they ruined all of the factory settings, I have no idea how to fix this problem, Is there a reset all settings function? What are the original settings...


Well, that thing's not a receiver, but here goes...LOL
your manual is here:
http://www.americanmusical.com/ItemFiles/Manual/YamahaNPV60DigitalPianoManual.pdf
going to most settings and pressing the + and - together resets the value for that parameter to factory.

Taking the settings back to factory without wiping data uploaded from the computer
hold the highest white key while powering the unit on.
Clearing computer uploaded data
hold the highest white and 3 highest black keys while powering the unit on.

That first one should FixYa!

My router password is lost. I want to access it now.


All routers have a reset button on them that will allow you to reset the unit back to the original configuration it had when it was first turned on. This will reset the password on the router back to the original factory default that will be listed in your manual. This means that any changes you have made to your router will be wiped out. Your router will then reboot itself and come back up with all of the original settings intact. You will then have to make any changes that are necessary to make the router function in the correct way for your network. All routers have menu items that allow you to back up the configuration file from the router to a place on your computer. That way if you ever need to reset your router back to the factory settings you can then just reload the configuration file to set it back to your configuration settings.

If you have any problems in resetting your router back to factory status please repost back to us with the router brand name and model number and we can give you further assistance.

Thank you for the opportunity to assist you in resolving your issue. Should you need further information or assistance please do not hesitate to let us know.

My computer wont boot up


If your computer was infected then it is still infected unless you have used an anti virus program to remove the infection. After removing the virus you then can install xp. Hope this helps.

Slave master settings


on your original HDD set your jumper to the closest to the IDE ribbon connection and your new HDD set it next to the closest (that will mark your new HDD as a slave). then reset your bios and resume what you were doing.
