Put the genuine Microsoft CD-ROM disk into your CD-ROM drive.
Restart your computer.
As soon as it starts, look for a message like "press Fxx to temporary change boot-order".
Press that key.
Select to boot from you CD-ROM drive.

I was wondering how to reboot it to factory settings (how i first bought it) everytime i try, it comes up with system restore and only restores when i last backed it up.

In order to restore your system back to totally factory settings you have to have the CD that came with your computer. Then you will have to make sure that you are booting from the DVD or CD-ROM as the first boot and the second is HD. Not sure as to what F button you need to actuate during the boot up to get to BIOS it may be F2 or F12 anyway when you get to the BIOS select boot and choose CD or DVD-ROM as the first boot then either F10 and exit or exit. Follow on screen instructions in the BIOS.

Now place your recovery CD or DVD in the drive and restart the laptop. Select restore complete system when the option from the CD restore disc comes up. It will format and restore your original system files. You do have to have the original restore disc for your model and serial for your lap top since you did not mention what brand your laptop is just go to the support or downloads or on their site for your computer to be able to purchase one. That is the only way you can restore it back to its original state when you purchased it. Thanks for using FixYa! John

Forgot my log on password for my laptop need to reset everything


Since you haven`t mention the operating system in the query, i believe the operating system as XP

the one method to retain your data and change the password is to repair your pc desktop, so kindly follow the below steps

XP Operating system REPAIR

Set your first boot device in the Bios to CD-Rom. Insert your Windows XP CD, save the bios settings and exit. Soon "Press any key to boot of CD" will appear on the screen, hit the space bar to continue.

Now setup will inspect your hardware and software, it then will load various files required for the repair. Just wait and be patient, this may take a few moments.

Soon a menu will appear (as pictured below), press enter to continue.

Now the "End User Agreement" Press "F8" if you agree, "ESC" if you don't.

You will now have to select the installation you wish to repair. Usually there is only one, but sometimes, there may be 2 or more (i.e. you have done a parallel install to resolve a problem), use the up/down arrow key to select the install, and then press "R" to continue.

Setup will now examine the disk be patient, it can take a few minutes.

Setup will go through a percentage - 1 to 100%

A screen will soon appear. Press "F3" to continue

Now setup will reboot system, wait 15 seconds or just press enter.

Now it is time to see if this has solved your problems.

How to format my computer?

To format your computer, you must have the (OS) Operating system CD. You have to move your important file to another location because formating your system will wipe out all the files you have on that drive. Put the OS CD on your CD-ROM and restart your your system. When system boots it will boot to the CD-ROM if the boot order is set that way. Otherwise you need to set the first boot order to the CD-ROM from BIOS. When the system boots to the CD-ROM you will be asked to press any key to boot from the CD-ROM, do just that and the system will boot from the CD-ROM. Follow the on screen instructruction afterward.

If you can, go back to a good running install from the system restore. Updates (especially from microsoft) don't always work.

Won't boot up

Put original Operating System CD into drive, boot computer from CD and start reinstalling system. When you get to screen that says you can press "R" to repair the Operating system, press "R" and see if it can fix the system. Once it's running, be sure to check for Malware (use Malwarebytes) and viruses (use Vipre-rescue) - and get a good registry cleaner (Cleanmypc) and clean up the registry. If repairing the OS doesn't work, then you'll probably have to format and re-install everything. Being a Compaq, watch the screen for a "Restore" function, and follow the prompts.

My first method will not lose you date, the second one will. Restoration will format the drive and you'll lose everything.

Good luck.

Acer Aspire 1640z Format Problem


Unless the hidden partitian has been written over or it has been corrupt...

Hit Alt-F10 as soon as you see the Acer logo when booting. If the recovery partitian does not display...then you must purchase an operating system and do it the old fashion way.

Good luck to you my friend.
