I have a V2 premier computer and I want to do a factory reset how do I do that


So a V2 looks to be a mix match of parts. Most factory resets are done from a F key pre OS boot. When the pc starts up and you see the logo screen "splash screen" of the motherboard manufacture or Bios screen if thats disabled look to the bottom right hand corner. It should display to hit F10 F11 or F12 to go to restore.

I have a gateway nv5470u,it picked up virurs and went blank,,it would not come on,then one day i hit the turn on button,it come on a blank screen with a white line uptop to the lleft...


That means that the hard drive is not detected properly on the computer.
Start the computer and keep tapping F2.
You will get a setup utility.
Press F9 and hit ENTER.
Press F10 and hit ENTER.
Now restart the computer.
If u still have the blinking cursor on that black screen, u need to check your hard drive.
If u are gettng some other error in windows or just a black screen, try doing recovery.
Recovery will wipe off all your datas in the computer.
For doing it, keep tapping Alt+F10 as soon as u turn on the computer.
If u are succesful, it will give a message that windows is loading files.
Just follow the prompts.

Keep me posted on the status of the issue.
If that helps, dont forget to rate me.

What is the video memory of a Compaq Presario SR5712F PC Desktop


Description---- Problems with video cards show up as intermittent system lockups when playing 3D games, small dots of color spattered across the Window desktop, the inability to run certain 3D games, and the inability to open Windows normally. All of these issues can occur because of video hardware or driver problems. Find an item below that matches your video need: For integrated video memory that is adjustable, use the following steps to change the amount of video memory (RAM) from the PC BIOS Setup:
  1. Turn on the PC.
  2. When the blue HP screen appears, press the F1 key. Entering Setup should appear on the screen.
  3. When BIOS Setup screen appears, use the RIGHT ARROW key to select the Advanced screen.
  4. Use the down Arrow key to select the video memory setting; for example; VGA RAM Size, integrated video, or On-Board Video Memory.
  5. Press the Enter key.
  6. Use the down Arrow key to select the desired amount of memory or memory setting that is listed and then press the Enter key. CAUTION: Do not select a DISABLED setting without a video card installed! Doing so can cause the monitor to go black until a video card is added or the BIOS is reset.
  7. Press the F10 key, and then press Enter to save changes and exit. The PC is set to use the new video memory setting.
tell me if this was helpful

There might be a bios setting that you have too set for the recovery mode. If you can get into the BIOS then check to see if there's a setting for recovery. You can also try at boot up (before the Windows error) to hit Ctrl-F10.

RAM upgrade gone wrong?


Did you already try using last know good configuration?
When your computer boots instead of f10 press F8. Then select last known good configuration and enter.

if it didn't work try booting up the computer without the memory see if it will have the same problem.

IX PACIUP4240 15'' LCD, No POST or boot


The error message "CABLE NO INSERT" refers to the lack of video signal to the LCD. To fix it you have to use a short VGA cable that connects VGA output of motherboard to VGA input of LCD. Only then you are going to see video output on LCD screen. Your other option is to connect external monitor to VGA output on motherboard. Either way you are going to see motherboard's video.
