At most motherboards there are 2 main ways to do it.
1st one is to boot pc and depending on motherboard press "F2" or "Delete" at pc startup.
Then you should be able to enter at bios setup of your motherboard.Now search carefully without changing anything you dont know what it is for.Usually at the last options you might have a "Reset to factory setting" or something equivalent, press it.That should do the trick.
In case the above solution doesnt work, you can move to next solution.
Get a screwdriver to open the side cover of your pc.
Unplug the power supply cable.Remove the 2 screws at the rear.Remove carefully the side lid and watch carefully the inside of your pc.
There you should be able to spot a flat silver coloured battery.Sized about of the size of 1euro coin.
now the options are 1 of the following:a)Either you remove it for about 1 min ,replace it and the motherboard is reseted.b) either there is a button that resets the motherboard which should be close to the batter c) either you should change a jumper setting and boot computer so that it resets.The last option is the most tricky one cause you need to have the manual of your motherboard cause if you change wrong jumper you could hurt to a big degree your motherboard.
Try all the above solutions with the sequence i pointed out and reply if you are about to reach the last one.

Performing a basic reset A basic reset will force your eReader to restart properly. In many cases, this is enough to restore your eReader to normal.
  1. If possible, turn off your eReader.
  2. Locate the small hole on the bottom of your eReader.
  3. Unfold a paperclip and slide an end into the hole.
  4. Press gently until you feel a click. Your eReader should restart.
Performing a factory reset If a basic reset doesn't work, you can perform a factory reset to restore your eReader to its original settings. After a factory reset, you'll have to set up and sync your eReader again.
If you perform a factory reset on your eReader, you'll:
  • Remove all books from your eReader. Any books you purchased from Kobo can be re-downloaded from the Kobo Cloud after a factory reset.
  • Lose any bookmarks and annotations you made in your books since you last synced your eReader.
  • Sign out of your account on your eReader.
  • Reset all of your settings and preferences.
  • Return your eReader to its original settings.
  1. If possible, back up any books or documents that you added to your eReader using Adobe Digital Editions, or that you manually added using your computer. You do not need to back up any books you bought from Kobo. Any books you purchased from Kobo can be re-downloaded from the Kobo Cloud after a factory reset.

How can I put a sanyo ce32fwn5-b back to factory settings thanks


You have to enter its service mode option to set the TV to its factory settings. There are two types of reset to TVs. The first is simple to do; a Hard Reset. The other is somewhat skilled; is a Factory Reset (System Reset). To make it a hard reset, just unplug the TV from AC mains wall socket, and re-plug it back after 15 minutes or so. If you do this by overnight; will be better. This procedure will make it a hard reset. If you want to make it a system reset [Factory Reset]; you have to enter its service mode option, and select the factory reset option. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. Surf the site with patience. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/
Service mode entry, adjust and exit procedure to many popular brand TVs are given. Never forget to exit the service mode, after all adjustments have been done.

How to format HTC WILDFIRE A33333


Factory reset is not a step to be taken lightly. It will permanently delete all your data and customized settings, and will also remove any applications you've downloaded and installed. Be sure to back up any data and files you want to keep before you do a factory reset

Performing a factory reset via settings:
The most convenient way to do a factory reset is via the phone settings.
From the Home screen, press MENU, then tap Settings.
Scroll down the screen, and then tap Privacy > Factory data reset.
On the Factory data reset screen, tap Reset phone, and then tap Erase everything.
Performing a factory reset using phone buttons:
If you cannot turn on your phone or access the phone settings, you can still perform a factory reset by using the buttons on the phone.
With the phone turned off, press and hold the VOLUME DOWN button, and then briefly press the POWER button.
Wait for the screen with the three Android images to appear, and then release the VOLUME DOWN button.
Press VOLUME DOWN to select CLEAR STORAGE, and then press POWER.Press VOLUME UP to start the factory reset.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response.

Thanks, Joe
