Fujitsu Laptop to Factory Settings
Restoring the factory settings on your Fujitsu laptop is a great way to get rid of files associated with programs that have been removed from your computer that are taking up space and get rid of pesky viruses that you can't remove from your machine by any other means.
Restoring the factory settings on your laptop can also help resolve problems with an unstable laptop.
You should also restore the factory settings on your laptop if you plan on selling it or giving it to a family member or friend.

Restart or turn on your Fujitsu laptop. Press "F12" repeatedly when the Fujitsu logo appears on the screen to be redirected to the Boot Menu.
Highlight "Recovery and Utility" using the arrow keys on the keyboard, then press "Enter."
A progress bar will appear at the bottom of the screen while the computer is loading the recovery files.
When the files have been loaded, the System Recovery Options window will be displayed.


Select a keyboard layout, then click "Next." The Operating System dialog box appears.
Choose "Use recovery tools...," then click "Next." If prompted, type your administrator password, then press "OK." The System Recovery Options window will appear again.


Select the "Recovery" tab, then click "Restoring the Factory Image (only C:\drive)."
The restoration process will begin, and the laptop will be restored to its original factory settings.
When the process is complete, the computer will automatically restart and boot up to the Windows Setup screen.
Begin personalizing your copy of Windows.

Using Boot Disc

Restart or turn on your Fujitsu laptop. Press "F12" repeatedly when the Fujitsu logo appears on the screen to be redirected to the Boot Menu.


Highlight "CD/DVD" using the arrow keys, then press "Enter."
Place the boot disc that came with your Fujitsu laptop in the optical drive, then click "OK."
A progress bar will appear at the bottom of the screen while the computer is loading the recovery files. When the files have been loaded, the System Recovery Options window will be displayed.


Select a keyboard layout, then click "Next."
Click "Next" when the Operating System dialog box appears.
If prompted, type your administrator password, then select "OK."
The System Recovery Options window will appear again.


Click "Recovery and Utility" when the System Recovery Options window opens, then select the "Recovery" tab.
Click "Restoring the Factory Image (only C: drive)."
The restoration process will begin, and the laptop will be restored to its original factory settings.

I have a gateway LT4004u laptop computer. I tried to restore it to the factory installation but didn't save all files first. Now when I try to start it up it says windows can't install on this...


You need to reinstall Windows on your laptop.
Use a computer that has a CD drive and copy the Windows installation CD to an USB memory stick.
To install Windows plug this memory stick with the Windows installation files into the USB port of your laptop then boot up your laptop and install Windows.

Need too restore to factory


The HP Mini laptop comes with either the Windows 7 or Windows Vista operating system.
You can restore the HP Mini to its factory settings using the laptop's recovery partition.
Restoring the HP Mini to its original factory settings will get rid of hard to eliminate viruses on the laptop's hard drive.
A factory restoration is also a good way to get rid of older files still stored on the computer that you no longer need and start with a clean slate.

Windows Vista
Click "Start" in the lower-left corner of your HP Mini Windows Vista home screen, then type "Recovery" into the Search box at the bottom of the Start menu. Click "Recovery Manager" in the list of options that appears above the Search box. The HP Recovery Manager will open. Click "Advanced Options" and then "System Recovery." Click "Next." Your HP Mini will restart. The HP Recovery Manager will open up automatically after the restart is complete. Click "System Recovery," and then click "Next." Click "No" if a message pops up on your screen asking if you want to use Microsoft System Restore. Select "Recover without backing up your files," and then click "Next." The restoration process begins. This could take between 30 and 90 minutes, depending on the of your hard drive and how much information you have stored on it. The HP Mini will restart when the laptop has been restored to its original factory settings, and you will be prompted to set up Windows Vista. Windows 7
Click the "Start" icon in the lower-left corner of your HP Mini Windows 7 home screen. Click "All Programs" and then click "Recovery Manager." Click "Recovery Manager" again to open the HP Recovery Manager program. Click "System Recovery" from the list of options beneath the "I need help immediately" section on the left side of the program. The HP Mini will automatically restart and open the HP Recovery Manager. Click "System Restore," and then click "Next." Click "No" if a message pops up on your screen asking if you want to use Microsoft System Restore. Select "Recover without backing up your files," and then click "Next." The restoration process could take between 30 and 90 minutes, depending on the of your hard drive and how much information you have stored on it. The HP Mini will restart when the laptop has been restored to its original factory settings, and you will be prompted to set up Windows Vista.

How can i restore my samsung NP-R60Y to factory setting without the reboot disc?


Hi,

Well, you can order Recovery Disc from Samsung which can be used to restore the laptop to factory settings.

If you wanted, you can install an operating system on your own. You need to either buy a copy of Windows or download it. If you download a copy of Windows you need to burn it to a CD or USB. Then boot the laptop up into the USB or CD and it will install Windows. It will reset the computer to new but not exactly like it was when you purchased it. Why? Well, Samsung and other companies preload a lot of junk software into the laptops with the operating system. This is how the make extra money. That is one reason why I don't really use the factory recovery disk.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Regards,
G33k

Damaged install CD probably.  Toshiba might send you a new one if you ask nicely.  Alternately, you could download a generic copy of vista from the net; install it; then go to Toshiba's site to get all the drivers for your particular laptop model of laptop.  Install all the drivers and you're good to go.

Yes, you should instead use a windows installation CD or DVD in that case.
