The BIOS is an interface between the hardware and the software, and it also contains basic testing for all components (POST). If the computer doesn't pass the BIOS phase it will not work at all !!!

Can u enter into the BIOS settings ? Do a BIOS reset, by shorting the proper jumper (see user manual) or by removing the BIOS battery for 5 seconds and then reinsert it (in the same position + to + and - to - !!!)

i don't know what u mean by a recovery ?!

Do the linux test if u can ! because if it works all u nead is a SO reinstall .... if not ... u can test the harddrive and memories on an another copmuter, and if they are good but the comp still doesn;t work something is damaged and u;ll have to get it to a service or replace the component ....

I want to reset my compaq presario cq60-215dx notebook pc


Hi

More information needed.

What do you mean by "reset"?

If you mean you want to restore it to a previous setting before, for example, a virus infection:

start > all programs > accessories > system tools > system restore > restore my computer to an earlier time > select date and event on calendar and event schedule > restore.

If you mean restore your computer to factory default settings:

When the computer is booting, you will see, at the bottom of the screen, an F (function) key that takes you into the Recovery mode.

Recovery will wipe everything else off except Windows and the programs and drivers that the computer originally came with.

Hope this helps.

    I have a Robinair 347002K abnd cannot access anything under defaults. Defaults show as a menu item, but I can not see or select anything else under that heading I tried the 5454 password i saw on another...


    You may did not try in the right way! The access code (5454) is 100% right for 347002K/347112K and 34700Z new series machines. If keypad has oil injection button (old series machine) press 8787 on keypad.
    However you can try as following: To access the change Defaults menu press 5454 (If keypad has oil injection button old series machine press 8787) on the keypad then press ENTER/START arrow key. Now display will change to "Calibrate Scale". Press up or down key to select option you wish to access from: Set Tank Tare, Output Test, Input Test, Keypad Test. Prepare to Ship. Reset Board Memory etc...

    NOTE: DO NOT CHANGE 'SET TANK TARE' OR PRESS 'PREAPARE TO SHIP' & RESET BOARD MEMORY' IF YOU ARE NOT FAMILIAR WITH THIS MACHIN!

    Hope this will help you. Good luck!

    I cant get factory settings on my computer My hard drive wont work properly Ihavent got any memory.Computer very slow Please explain in laymans terms Obliged


    1. Factory settings on computer.
    There really isn't "factory settings" to reset. Well it isn't simple as that. There is the BIOS which can be reset to "default settings" for the BIOS. Also most brand name computers come with a recovery feature, in which you can recovery/restore the computer back to original factory defaults with original software all installed. Therefore the computer's operating system (usually windows) will be running with the programs like it would run if you were to buy the same new laptop.

    2. Hard drive won't work properly.
    You can give the hard drive a test using the hard drive's company's hard drive testing software which can be download from their site. The software would test the hard drive to make sure nothing physical is wrong and the hard drive is functioning like normal.

    3. Haven't got any memory. Computer very slow.
    You can always buy more memory. If windows says it's running out of memory. That means there is too many software running in the background.

    Comment if you want more explained.

    Start up


    - BIOS not BIO :)

    - all computers, laptop/desktop/server..etc ... have a small battery, that helps keep the settings in BIOS as the user changed them !

    - u;ll have to go through u're motherboard user manual to see exactly where the bios reset jumper is ! If u don't have the manual, u will see the battery (is a round and flattened 1.5 cm battery...u cant miss it, is the only one in the computer) somewhere on the motherboard (ussualy in the lower right part of the motherboard). You just have to remove it for 5 seconds or so (force it out of the soket it is in) and then replaceit back. By doing this all the BIOS settings go to the manufacters default settings...
