See if you want to reset your PC to as it came new you will have to format your hard disk and install a fresh copy of the OS you use. For that you need a bootable setup CD. (most of the OS setup CD's are bootable now a days)

You must be having a OS cd like Windows XP, or Windows Vista or whatever you use.

Now what you have to do first is check you first boot device or boot order. For that you need to get into BIOS. To get into BIOS you will have to press buttons like DEL, F1, F2, F9 or F10. Don't press all together try one at a time. For most of PC's DEL works.

Now when you have got into your BIOS check for Boot order and see if CD/DVD drive has the first preference or not. Then Insert the disk into drive and restart your PC. Your OS CD will get booted and then just follow the instructions as the setup runs.

Before you format your PC be sure you have all the hardware drivers.

If you need some more help I am there.

Just restore from the disk you got with it or the backup you made at first, or look up the buttons to press at first in your Acer manual.  You'll have to go forwards eventually, though....

Lost my manual for toro 418ze snow blower. cant remember how to start it


The gas is bad. You have to add preservatives to it before you store it. Now you need to drain the sour gas and put in new gas. Then try to start it again.

How to completely erase the hd


A hard drive is the brain of a computer. However, over time, that brain can become overworked and overly saturated with old software and outdated information. It becomes clogged and needs a fresh start. By erasing a hard drive, you can give your PC that fresh new beginning. With a few steps you can erase your hard drive manually, without the aid of expensive software.

Make sure your data is protected before you proceed. Whatever you do not save will be lost once you erase the drive. Use a CD or jumpdrive to save your information. Boot with a system disk. Before you continue to erase the hard drive, use the system to create a system disk. Use a 3-1/2 inch floppy disk and format it with the command "format a: /s"; this will create a bootable disk that contains system commands. Place it in the drive of your system and turn it off, then back on. Reformat the hard drive. Once you've booted with the system disk, type "format c: /s"; this will reformat the hard disk, virtually destroying the old hard drive you used to know. Depending on the of the drive, the formatting may take a fairly long time. Once the formatting is over, use the command "fdisk" to create partitions (which are logical sections for your hard drive's storage). Given the newer hard drives and operating systems of today, you can fdisk the drive and use all of the space. or if you dont have a floppy drive Download a disk wiping utility, such as Darik's Boot and Nuke (DBAN) or KillDisk. DBAN is an open-source product, while KillDisk is available as a free, closed-source download. http://www.dban.org/ http://www.killdisk.com/ Once you download the file, save it to your computer somewhere easy to remember. Insert a blank CD into your computer and use a CD writing program to burn the hard disk wipe utility to the blank CD. If you are using Windows Vista or 7, there is a built-in utility that will perform this task. Back up the data on your computer that you want to save, if necessary. Insert the CD that you created into the computer that is attached to the hard drive you wish to erase. Power on the computer and choose the setup option to boot from the CD. Once you have booted from the CD, you will enter into the hard disk wipe utility. Depending on which utility you chose to use, this screen will vary, but the choice you want to select is to erase or wipe a disk drive. Choose the hard disk that you wish to wipe and confirm that you wish to permanently erase the data on it. Before confirming this, you may wish to physically double check and ensure that you are erasing the correct drive. Once you start the erasing process, it cannot be halted, paused or reversed. You will have to wait for anywhere from a few hours to even a few days for the process to complete, depending on how large your hard drive is.
or you could just reinstall another operating system this will automatically delete the old wrong one you installed.



Hope this helps.

We dont have a manual for our Saeco Magic comfort coffee machine and the declcify message is up on the screen. What do we do?


Hi
Enter the menu by pressing the menu button. Scroll down until you reach “water hardness” and then press the menu button to activate. Scroll down to the hardness of your water (chose 4 to be safe) and press the menu button again for the computer to remember. Push escape (esc.) and scroll to “Descale) about 4 up from water hardness, and push enter.
To descale your Magic Comfort +, enter the menu and scroll to descale. Push the menu button to descale. Mix your solution in your water tank. Use warm to hot water and dissolve all the solution. Place the water tank on your machine. With a container under the steam wand that is large enough to catch all the water in the tank, you are ready to begin. To start the descaling process, open the steam knob. The machine will automatically start the descaling process andwhen it is finished, it will shut off and tell you that it needs to be rinsed. Remove the water tank and rinse with fresh water. Refill the water tank and place it on the machine. Turn off the machine, wait a moment, and then turn it back on. Press the hot water button to start pumping fresh water through the boiler. Pump out about 16 oz. of water and then turn off the hot water button and open the steam knob to rinse the steam boiler. When it starts to go to steam, turn off and turn on the hot water button again. Pump out another 16 oz. Repeat this process with the steam knob until you have emptied the water tank. Descaling is complete. Go to your menu and scroll to “reset descale”, push the enter button and chose “Yes” and push the enter button. Now it will tell you we next to be descaled.
