The F10 restore function is set in the MBR of a hard drive. To set the MBR command a free program from terabyteunlimited can be downloaded from the following link:

http://www.terabyteunlimited.com/downloads/wp/mbrsetupv2.zip

Once the computer is booted with the floppy created with the previous download, the following command should restore the F10 function:
mbr 0 /install sel 5 10 "Press F10 for the recovery partition"The command assumes you are working on hard drive '0'. The '5' indicates the time in seconds to display the msg and the '10' indicates the function key to use. The restore partition should be the first partition on the hard drive and it should be hidden.

Good Luck

I need help on restoring my compaq armada e500


Hi Welcome to FixYa!
You could try these steps on restoring your laptop into its factory defaults.
1)Turn off your computer if it is on. Wait for the system to shut down completely. Once it is off, press the "Power" button to turn it back on. Press the "F10" button at the top of the keyboard repeatedly as soon as you see the screen turn on. This will let you enter the setup menu.
2)Use the arrow keys to move between the various menu tabs at the top of the screen. Press the "Right" button until the "File" tab is highlighted, then press the "Enter" button to enter this menu. Here you can make changes to the settings of your computer, or in this instance, restore factory default settings.
3)Use the "Up" and "Down" arrow buttons to move to the "Restore Defaults" option, then press enter. You will see a screen asking "Are You Sure You Wish to Restore System Defaults?" Press the "Y" button to continue. The system will begin restoring your default settings. Do not press a button until a screen says "System Defaults Restored."
4)Use the arrow keys to move down to the "Save Changes and Exit" option and press "Enter." The system will save your changes and automatically reboot your computer. You do not need to press "F10" this time as the computer will start Windows normally. You will see the factory settings have been restored once the system loads.
Hope this could help!

    Hello.

    Either you have an operating system problem or memory issue.

    First, boot your system to Safe Mode (press F8 repeatedly when powering on). Go to System Restore and choose a date when your system worked OK. Note: with System Restore, all your updates will roll back to that date. Follow the process.

    If still a problem, disconnect all cables. Be certain to dispel static electricity by touching metal. Remove the battery and memory cover. Try reseating (removing and reinserting) your memory (try one module at a time to test).

    If still a problem, the last choices are Factory Restore and reinstall. Accessing Factory Restore (restores to the factory settings and will wipe out anything that you have installed or saved on your PC), is dependent on your hardware manufacturer. Boot your system and press F10, F11, Alt+F10, or Ctrl+F11 to access Factory Restore. Follow the prompts.

    If still not resolved, you'll probably need to reinstall your operating system.

    Hope this helps.

    TRYS TO BOOT REPEATEDLY, BUT WILL NOT BOOT.


    When booting up, press the Delete key repeatedly, then select Default Settings in the BIOS, then press the F10 key to save and restart. If that doesn't work, try to get into Safe Mode and do a system restore to when the computer would boot properly.
    To get into safe mode, press the F8 key repeatedly on bootup, then select Safe Mode. Once you get the to desktop, a box should appear, press No and it will open up System Restore. Choose a date from the calendar of when the system was working, and restore to that point. System Restore does take around 20+ minutes to complete, so let it run and be patient.
    Good luck!

    How to restore my acer aspire 5315 back to factory settings i have tried every thing i can think i press f8 on startup then boot logging but nothing happens HELP?


    Just after pressing Power button try to press and hold FN+F10 if this does not work try FN+F11, you can also keep holding a FN and simultanuously pressing F10 or F11. This should take you to the system recovery screen then follow procedures from the screen. Another way is to activate hidden system restore partition on the hard drive if there is any, the simply reboot your computer.
