My HP Pavillion dv7 3112sa won't boot and remains

Hi, at startup try pressing f8, this should give you a menu, select 'start windows with last good configuration', this should restore windows to the state before it started rebooting randomly. Failing that...try starting in 'safemode with command prompt' and then do a 'system restore'- press f8 again at start up and then follow the instructions below. this should restore your system to a previous state when the computer wasn't doing random things.

  1. Restart your computer, and then press and hold F8 during the initial startup to start your computer in safe mode with a Command prompt.
  2. Use the arrow keys to select the Safe mode with a Command prompt option.
  3. If you are prompted to select an operating system, use the arrow keys to select the appropriate operating system for your computer, and then press ENTER.
  4. Log on as an administrator or with an account that has administrator credentials.
  5. At the command prompt, type %systemroot%\system32\restore\rstrui.exe, and then press ENTER.
  6. Follow the instructions that appear on the screen to restore your computer to a functional state.
I hope that this helps you to sort out the problem. Toni

I want to reset my sony vaio

I'm assuming you want to restore your computer to the factory settings, so here's how to do that.

1. Restart your computer
2. Hold down the ALT key and press F10 repeatedly as it restarts.
3. This should initiate the factory restore option, which will reset your computer to an out-of-box state.

Hope this helps!

Do i press f10 on my pc to restor back to factory settings and if so ive tried this and it didnt work who can i wipe the pc back to original state.

Try CTRL F10 or ALT F10 or CTRL F11 or ALT F11. These are the typical keys used to get the hidden"Restore Partition" to boot to a menu that can help you backup, repair or restore to factory-delivered state. NOTE, restoring to a Factory Delivered State will WIPE OUT ALL YOUR DATA AND ANY APPLICATIONS YOU HAVE INSTALLED SINCE YOU GOT THE COMPUTER. THIS MAY include email in Outlook, Outlook Express, other non-web based email programs.
Also, not all computers come with the hidden restore partition, and you may have to find your collection of factory D's to do this.

To restore your os to it's original state, you need to click on ( start ). Then click on ( All Programs ). Then click on ( accessories ).Then click on ( system tools ). Then click on ( system restore ). And the last thing you'll do is to select a recently saved restore point. And there you have it. Have a nice day and hoping this would have good effect on your computer.

Want to reboot to oreginal setting or remove my visa number from my ipod touch

To restore your ipod to its original settings, hook up your ipod to your PC via USB. In itunes click on your ipod on the left side and it should bring up the setting for your ipod. There is an option that will allow you to restore your ipod back to its factory settings but will erase everything on your ipod including all music on it.

If you would like to remove your visa card from your itunes you can log onto your account from your pc and should be able to change your payment options from the itunes store.

I mistakenly hit 'restore factory settings' on my Acer Laptop. How do I recover my stored data?


When logged onto Windows, try to do a system restore. Restore to a date prior to the factory setting restoration if available. This should revert your computer back to the state it was on this date.

Note that you will lose all programs installed after this date.

Hope this helps you.
