I want to restore my HP Compaq 58 to its original state so I went to the Update and restore in the Computer settings then pressed Restore. After that I opted for Delete all and restore Windows. The problem...


The first option is to restore to factory settings (as purchased when new. This option deletes your personal files, and just re-installs to factory. If using this, it is advisable to find any discs to programs installed since original factory state (as of time of purchase) It is advisable to use a program like Balearic Adviser to collect information, and sometimes your keys to any programs you instaled , and cannot find the software to reinstall.
The second option appears to be to wipe the hard drive so that your data is not available to others if you wanted to sell/scrap (recycle) your pc. The data is often saved on a seperate partition on your hard drieve

Factory default settings


If you have a recovery point set to your computer then you can use that. If not you can use Hiren's boot CD(http://www.hirensbootcd.org/download/) to save your data to a hard drive then wipe the entire computer out and start over

I have a toshiba satellite L645D how can I format it to the factory settings like it just came out of the box.


When your Toshiba Satellite laptop goes on the fritz, there are several instances where the best solution is to delete everything and start over. If your system frequently crashes or you can't remove a specific virus, you may want to restore the laptop back to original factory settings. While the easiest way to restore the system is to use the operating system restore disc, it is possible to restore the system without it. Each Satellite laptop also includes a hard drive recovery utility that lets you restore the operating system without the restore disc.

1.Take account of any files or programs you still want to use after the Toshiba laptop is restored back to its factory settings. Transfer the files to a backup location, such as a USB flash drive or external hard drive.

2.Restart the Toshiba Satellite laptop's operating system. Wait for the Toshiba logo to appear on the screen.

3.Press the key that brings up the hard drive disk utility menu. Depending on the specific model of your Toshiba Satellite laptop, the key will either be "0," "F1," or "F8."

4.Press "1" or click "Restore Original Factory Image." Click "Yes." Select "Next" to begin the restoration process.

5.Restart the Toshiba laptop computer when the restoration process finishes running. Follow the prompts that appear on the screen to set up the laptop's date, time and language settings.

6.Transfer the backup copies of the data you saved earlier back to the Toshiba's hard drive. Re-install any programs you need, such as your software firewall or anti-virus tool.

I hope you find it very helpful. Thanks.

Does the recovery feature totally wipe out all saved files and pictures?


As a rule, system recoveries usually bring a PC or laptop back to the factory install, effectively erasing all new data created and stored since its purchase. I would suggest backing up your current files before running the system recovery if it is an option.

I have a toshiba satellite l505. and out of the blue one day i went to turn it on and the screen stayed black with a blinking line on the top.. how do i fix it!


Hello.

Either you have a memory issue or operating system problem.

First, disconnect all cables. Be certain to dispel static electricity by touching metal. Remove the cover. Try reseating (removing and reinserting) your memory (try one module at a time to test).

If still a problem, boot your system to Safe Mode (press F8 repeatedly). Go to System Restore and choose a date when your system worked OK. Note: with System Restore, everything, including your documents and other files you saved on the hard drive, will roll back to that date.

If still a problem, the last choices are Factory Restore and reinstall. Accessing Factory Restore (restores to the factory settings and will wipe out anything that you have installed or saved on your PC), is dependent on your hardware manufacturer. Boot your system and press F10, F11, Alt+F10, or Ctrl+F11 to access Factory Restore. Follow the prompts.

If still not resolved, you'll probably need to reinstall your operating system.

Hope this helps.

It just stops when you turn off and on agains sometimes the windows moving thing< lol because I do not know what it is called just stops also. Please help a 67 year old computer wannabe! Thank you...


Hello.

It's great that you are a 67 year old computer wannabe ... I didn't grow up in the computer age, either.

Anyway, I think you are saying that your system freezes ???

If so ... either you have a memory issue or operating system problem.

First, disconnect all cables. Be certain to dispel static electricity by touching metal. Remove the battery and memory cover. Try reseating (removing and reinserting) your memory (try one module at a time to test).

If still a problem, boot your system to Safe Mode (press F8 repeatedly). Go to System Restore and choose a date when your system worked OK. Note: with System Restore, everything, including your documents and other files you saved on the hard drive, will roll back to that date.

If you can't access System Restore by Safe Mode, try Offline System Restore:
1. Boot from the DVD
2. Select the Language
3. Click on "Repair your Computer" on the Install now screen
4. Click next on the System Recovery Options screen
5. Click on System Restore.
6. Choose the date to which you want to restore

If still a problem, the last choices are Factory Restore and reinstall. Accessing Factory Restore (restores to the factory settings and will wipe out anything that you have installed or saved on your PC), is dependent on your hardware manufacturer. Boot your system and press F10, F11, Alt+F10, or Ctrl+F11 to access Factory Restore. Follow the prompts.

If still not resolved, you'll probably need to reinstall your operating system.

And ... if I'm off the mark as far as your problem is concerned, please let me know.

Hope this helps.

Tried to reboot to factory settings


You have to make sure when going through the setup (if given the option) to install a clean copy and not install windows to another directory. If you have access to a floppy disk drive an easier way would to be to create a dos boot disk and reformat your c:drive. Make sure you do not have any data on this laptop you want to save. If that does not work you can try to get a DOS program called FDISK. It will wipe out the hard drive partitions so that you can reload your laptop from scratch. Let us know how it goes.

System recovery for toshiba satellite m100


Sure.  START -  MY DOCUMENTS -EDIT-  SELLECT ALL - DELETE.
After that , go to the Hard drive: . START - MYCOMPUTER- right click the hard driver image - click on properities - clock on disk clean up.  After that is done, click on TOOLS. Click on defrag now. Defrag it. That will scramble any left over enough not to worry about it. If you are really very worried about,save a bunch of junk files after defragging.
