Need to reset the sylvania netbook


Make sure your computer is on and working, and also connected to the internet.. Remember you will lose all data when you do this, so back up first anything you need to keep.
There seem to be two lines of thought on this.
1. The reset button on the back is about 1in. diagonally from the right lower corner of the data plate. Insert a tooth pick/a straightened paper clip in the little hole and hold for about ten seconds with the power plugged in. This should reset it to the factory specs.
OR
2. To do a system restore on Sylvania Netbook, you need to make sure that it is connected to a router. After accessing the internet, press "F9" key to start the restore process where it will restart to confirm and then ask for the password.

How can I reset my LG X110 netbook to factory specs?


Hi,
Do you have anything on the laptop you need to keep? have you done backed ups of any files etc?

To do a factory restore
Press the F11 key when you turn on the laptop (may have to tap it several times)
Then follow the guided prompts to do a factory restore.

Alternate option to do a factory restore:
Press F8 when you turn on the laptop (may have to tap repeatedly)
a menu should come up
choose repair your computer
then select factory recovery/lg recovery?

I want to reboot my dell 1505 inspiron laptop to factory specs. Please help.


Note: restoring your computer to its original factory settings will clear most of the data off of your hard drive, including personal files. Be sure to back up what you need.

Some computers ship without a system restore, but your computer more than likely has it.
To restore your computer to its original state, do the following:
- Make sure your computer is powered off.
- Turn on your computer, and hold the 'Ctrl' key and the 'F11' key at the same time
- When the menu appears, select 'restore'
- If your computer does not have system restore, you will not be able to / not see restore
- Confirm that you wish to restore your computer
- Your system will be reset to its original state
- When finished, select 'finish' to reboot the computer

You will have to go though some of the menus that you did when you originally had your computer. Your computer should finish restoring after these menus.

Beat me to it pontelemon.....lol.

Just as the Guru said and mine is...see below.

Restore and recovery
The restore and recovery features allow you to restore or recover the system
from a factory default image, from a user created image, or from previously
created CD and DVD backups. You can also reinstall applications and drivers for
your Acer system.
1 Press <Alt> + <F10> or select Acer eRecovery Management from the
Empowering Technology toolbar to start Acer eRecovery Management.
2 Switch to the restore and recovery page by selecting the Restore button.
3 Select the backup point you would like to restore from. You can also
choose to recover the system from a factory default image, recover from a
previously created CD/DVD or reinstall applications and drivers.
4 Follow the instructions on screen to complete the process.

Recovery disks, Factory specs, pda files and pcmcia?


thanks for your smile
recovery disc is used for recovering your operating system when your pc is having problem.
restoring back to factory default means the settings of the computer when you received the computer from the shop. in other words default settings.
pda files are personal data assistance files.
pcmcia card is same as lan card( also known as nic card, ethernet card) of your pc. pcmcia card is used in lap tops.

Cannot access full factory restore


Open up your Control Panel (in Start menu), click on 'Performance and Maintenance', then in the left-hand column click on 'system restore'. On the system restore screen choose 'Restore my computer to an earlier time' and follow the directions to go back as far as you want.
I'm curious why you need to do this, though. If it's because of a virus, make sure the virus is gone or your problems wilkl just come right back!
I would certainly consider ordering the manufacturer's recovery CD's any way in case the hard drive ever goes bad. It's cheaper than a anew set of 'Windows' CD's. Good Luck!

I need to restore my computer to factory settings


If your PC is still under factory warranty the manufacterer might do it for you. I did not have the restore disk but eMachines surprised me. by sending me a shipping box and then paying the shipping costs both ways. The PC was restored to factory specs and back to me in 5 to 7 business days.

You will need to include your Windows OS password.

If your PC is out of warranty most manufacterers will sell you a restore disk for about $20 plus
shipping cost.
