HI, If you want to restore the computer back to default settings, all you need to do is to press Ctrl+F11 button during start-up. You get the option to restore the image like the first time you got your computer.
Thank you for using Fixya, your recommendation is highly appreciated for the free support.

How do reset my compuer to factory without a cd


All versions of windows have whats called system restore.

Hopefully it was turned on.

Go to start button, all programs, accessories, system tools,
system restore, click on choose a different restore and then next,
now, on the next page click on the little box that says-show me all restore points, now pick the oldest restore point, and this will return the pc to
a state when it was new.

I want to factory restore my dell dimensions 3000.


There are three methods available.

1) Use Windows XP System Restore.

If you cannot access Windows XP, the following two methods are available.

2) Use the Dell Operating System CD, and the Dell Resource CD.

If you do not have these restoration CD's,

3) Use Dell Restore by Symantec

With this method all personal files you have, and any programs, or applications you have installed, or downloaded, will be GONE.

(Personal Files: My Pictures, My Music, My Videos, and personal files you have created)

Turn the computer on. AS SOON as you see -
www.dell.com, appear in the blue bar, Press -
the CTRL key, AND the F11 key -
AT THE SAME TIME. (Not shouting)

If you do not press both keys at the same time, and in time, let the computer load. It may stop at a blank screen, with a blinking cursor.

It's okay. Now press the CTRL key, ALT key, and DELete key at the same time.
This will restart your computer. Try again when you see the www.dell.com logo.

If upon pressing the CTRL key, and F11 key, you go to the next screen, left-click on - Restore

On the next screen click on - Confirm

Takes about 6 to 10 minutes.
After the restoration has stopped, click on Finish.
Your computer will now reboot.

Should you need help with Windows XP System Restore, or using your Dell restoration disks, please state so in a comment.

You can try pressing f4 at startup screen and seeing if it gives you the advanced option to factory restore, which would be located on hard drive.

Or

You can call HP (compaq) and ask them to ship you the restore disks, I think they charge shipping only for this option.

Touchpad won't work


Your Aspire has a Fn key down between the ALT and CTRL keys on the left. Push that and the F7 key (pretty sure that is the one). It turns the touchpad on and off.

Hope this helps.

My laptop won't shut down properly!


Is it possible that you have changed the settings of what buttons do what on your system? E.g. you could have changed the power button to "switch user" instead of "shut down", to check this (in XP) go to "Power Options" (in Control Panel" and then click on the "Advanced tab" at the top, then select "Shut down" from the drop down menu at the bottom of the window.

If this is already set to shut down then maybe you could do a system restore in case another setting has been changed, restore it to before the PC started doing this.

Alternatively try actually choosing "Turn off Computer" from the Log On screen (press Ctrl + L to get to this screen, or choose switch user/log off). If you are using Vista I beleive that there is a shut-down option from the Log In Page there (which again you can access by pressing Ctrl + L on the keyboard.

Hope this helps!

You're talking about My PC and device manager and I'm talking about Bios.
The BIOS (stands for Basic Input/Output System) is system software inside your computer that helps the computer start up, even before Windows does. It also contains key settings about what the computer has on board.
In newer computers, it exists on a special chip called CMOS (stands for Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor).

You can go into the BIOS to edit or change the technical information about key components of the computer like disk drives, keyboards, and display settings. It also keeps track of the date and time.
The BIOS can normally be accessed when you start your computer. You may see a reference to "Setup" when you turn your computer on. That’s your opportunity to get into the BIOS. It usually requires the push of a function key, such as F10, to get access to it. That "F" key varies between computers. Sometimes it’s not even one of the Function keys, but the ESC key or DEL key.

If a logo screen—like HP or Dell—is displayed during the start up process instead, then you may want to check with your computer maker for a command to turn off that screen and display the start up information, which is listed when a computer is powered on.
A partial list of BIOS access commands by brand is listed at the end of this article.
The BIOS also contains the boot-up sequence. Normally, computers are configured to boot from a hard drive.


Before you do anything to your BIOS, it’s always a good idea to record the original settings on a sheet of paper that can be kept in a safe place so you can reference it later if you need to reset it.
Here is a list of key sequences for various brand-name computers. If yours is not there, check with your manufacturer or watch for info flashed on-screen when your computer first starts, before Windows begins. It may say

"For setup hit..." That will be how to get into the BIOS on your machine.
Acer: - Ctrl+Alt+Esc
ALR PC: (F2) or Ctrl+Alt+Esc
AMI BIOS: (Del), (F1) or (F2)
AST, Advantage, Award, Tandon: - Ctrl+Alt+Esc
Award BIOS: (Del) or Ctrl+Alt+Esc
Compaq: (F10) (do this when the cursor is in the upper right corner of the screen blinking)
Dell: - F1 or Del.
Dell: - Some require pressing reset twice
Dell: - Ctrl + Alt + Enter
DTK BIOS: (Esc)
Gateway 2000: - F1
Hewlett Packard: - F1
IBM:
Older Models - In order to get into the configuration of the IBM setup screen (CMOS) screen you need to hold down both mouse buttons during boot up.
Aptiva - Press F1
IBM PS/2: Ctrl+Alt+Ins after Ctrl+Alt+Del
IBM PS/2 with reference partition: - Press Ins during boot
Some PS/2s, such as 75 and 90: - Ctrl Alt ?
Some PS/2s when pointer at top right of screen: - Ctrl + Ins
NEC: - F2
Packard Bell: - F1 or F2
Phoenix BIOS: (F1), (F2), or Ctrl+Alt+Esc
Phoenix BIOS: - Ctrl+Alt+S
Phoenix BIOS: - Ctrl+S
Phoenix BIOS: - Ctrl+Alt+Ins
Sharp Laptop 9020: - F2
Sony: (F3) while you are starting the PC, then (F2) or (F1)
Tandon computers: - Hold down the key after turning on power
Tandon: - Ctrl+Shift+Esc
Toshiba Laptops: - Toshiba Utility
Toshiba: - Press Esc during boot
Toshiba, Phoenix, late model PS/1 Value Point and 330s: - Press F1 during boot
Olivetti PC Pro: - Shift+Ctrl+Alt + Num Pad Del
Miscellaneous PC’s: - Ctrl + Esc or Ctrl and Alt and +
Zenith: - Ctrl+Alt+Ins

AFTER DOWNLOADING UPDATE FOR LOGITECH MOUSE WILL NOT WORK.


Hello,

If you have XP (Green start button in left corner) you may want to try System restore. Its under Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore. Once you have selected that you will want to choose "Restore My Computer to an earlier time" then choose next. On the next screen you will see a calendar with bold dates. Those are the days that have restore info available. There should be one that list the Logitec driver update, Just click that entry on the right and choose next. After confirming that you have slected the correct date, choose Next again.

This will cause your system to restart and then your system should work as it did before you installed the update.

According to Microsoft, this procedure wont cause any data loss.

Since your mouse isnt work you will need to use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl - Esc to bring up start menu. (Hold Ctrl and tap Esc key) Once the menu opens, you can you the keyboard arrows to select the menu options above. Then use Enter or Space bar to choose System Restore, Once there you can tab to the options and space to select options.

Thanks
