I have a packard bell imedia mc 1538 and need to resore to factory settings, have tried using F10 key with no result just goes to start up. The master cd just does a system restore and not the factory...


If the file that holds the factory settings is gone then there is no way to restore the factory settings back. You can however reinstall windows if you got a hold of a windows disc in the version you want. You can use the windows key on the computer somewhere to activate the windows. I would suggest doing a system restore the the last restore point and removing any unwanted things from there.

I have sony DSC-W190,i want correct menu setting ,bcos if i take a picture its not clear,i think may be menu setting changed,idnt any idea about menu setting pls help.....


Hi,

If the Menu settings in the camera is changed, then I suggest you to reset the Camera back to factory default. Initializing the Camera back to factory default will set all the settings in the Camera back to factory default.
To initialize the Camera back to factory default, select the INITIALIZE Option from the Main Settings 1 Menu of the Camera to OK.This will set the user defined settings back to factory default. The images and videos will not get deleted.
You can also try a manual reset;

Turn off the camera.

Remove the battery pack.

Press and hold the power button for 30 seconds.

Allow the camera to remain without power for 60 seconds.

Reinsert the battery pack.

Turn on the camera.


The blurry image capturing can also adjusted by changing the ISO Settings or the Scene Selection modes.


Thanks for using FixYa!

Hi,

Restoring the router to factory default will have impact on AT&T settings provided if you not made note of the setting details. However its adviced to call up AT&T and make a note of the settings before going for factory defaults.

Want it back too factory set up


Go to the on-screen menu.

select 'Feature' (on left)
select 'Advanced Video Set'
select 'Setting' - restores to factory default

If you are having trouble with just the Audio or Video settings and want to reset just one of them back to the factory defaults, there are 'Setting' selections in each of the Video and Audio sections which will set each section back to the factory defaults.

HOW DO I SET MY LAPTOP BACK TO FACTORY


For (Operating Systems=windows98,xp,vista)
unless you have a custom program to do this you can only restore back using (system restore) however that will not restore it to factory settings.. the best way is simply re-installing the Operating system after Formatting your entire Harddisk space (all partitions)
If you don't know how to do it.. then simple follow the instructions after booting the windows CD
PS: to boot windowsxp cd you have to set BIOS settings (F2 or F10 or Del Button at start of computer) to boot CD before HDD..

There is no simple restore factory settings in Laptops
