System Configuration of Fujitsu Amilo D-7820 PC Notebook:

Manufacturer:  Fujitsu

Family:           AMILO

Model:            D-7820

Speed:            PC-2100

Fixed RAM:      0MB

Standard RAM:  128MB

Banks:              2

Maximum RAM: 2GB

Sockets:            2

Chipset:             Intel 855 GM

Please check whether you have a systems disk or cd with an operating system e.g. MS XP Home edition.

If you have the original operating system disk or cd, reformat your hard drive i.e. assuming that you have windows XP click the Start button, then select Run, then type "cmd" then Enter, an MS DOS screen will appear. 

Type "format c:" and enter and it will then ask whether you really want to delete all files on the hard drive and then type "Y".  The computer will then wipe everything on your computer.  You can then insert your Operating Disk or CD and follow the instructions that appear on the screen to reinstall the original default settings or the Operating System.  Hoping that this will help you solve your problem.

I didn't see this model listed, so perhaps the number is wrong?
If you have an operating system disk, you should be able to reinstaIl  by just inserting the disk and following the prompts.
checked one model, and that seems to be the method Fujitsu uses.

Surgically removing is teeedious
Leaving just the os and driversJust find your data folders and start purging but watch out ad remove programs can get sticky so with a backup you can dabble all you want.

Hard reset


You may need to restore your Acer computer to its factory defaults if a virus damages operating files or if the system begins acting erratically for unknown reasons.
Restoring an Acer to factory defaults returns the computer to its original state when first purchased.

Click on the Start menu.
Then, select all programs, Acer Empowering Technology and Acer eRecovery Management.
If this is the first time you have opened the program it will prompt you to set up a password and create a backup CD.
Click the Restore button and select the option that reads "Restore system to factory defaults".

Wait for the computer to finish the restore process and reboot.
Restoring for the Boot Screen

If your computer will not boot up properly, you can attempt to reach the restore option by pressing the Alt button and the F10 button at the same time.


When the eRecovery menu appears, choose "restore system to factory defaults".

Wait for the recovery process to complete and the computer to restart.

Reset acer


The Acer Aspire One is a netbook, not a laptop.
A netbook is a smaller, scaled-down version of a laptop. It does not have the memory capacity or graphics of a regular laptop.
It also lacks a CD drive, which means you cannot restore the Acer Aspire One with restore discs. Instead, the netbook has a built-in factory restore feature.
You can reset the Acer Aspire One to factory settings just using your keyboard.
Only restore your netbook to factory settings if you cannot fix the problem any other way.
Save any files or folders on your Acer Aspire One with flash drives.
Drag and drop files onto the icon of your flash drive.
Go to Start > Restart to reboot your netbook.

Hold down Alt and F10 when you see the Acer logo on the screen.
The recovery menu will load.
Hit Enter and then Next to see your recovery options.
Choose Factory Restore to set your netbook back to factory settings.
Follow the instructions on the screen.
Choose your time zone and language when the customization menu appears.
Reboot the netbook when you are prompted.
Restore your saved files from the flash drive.
or
When a vital file becomes corrupted, it might be necessary to restore a computer to its original factory settings.
This process also cleans up the hard drive and removes old programs that can make a computer slow and unresponsive.
But, because restoration wipes away all files you have installed or created, it should be a last-ditch effort in trying to repair a computer.
If you have reached this point with your Acer laptop or desktop, the manufacturer provides a utility to restore the factory settings.

Open the Windows Start menu by clicking on the icon in the lower left corner of your desktop.
Click All Programs, then the Acer folder.

Select Acer eRecovery Management to open the utility.
If a Windows prompt asks for permission to run the program, click Yes.

Click the Restore button in the pane on the left side of the program window.
Click Completely Restore System to Factory Defaults.
Select the Yes option in the dialog box that asks you to confirm the action, and click Start.
Click OK in the second confirmation dialog box to restart the computer.
Click Next in the warning window that appears after the computer reboots.
This confirms that you realize restoring the computer deletes any data stored on your hard drive.

Click Next again in the Restore Destination window, and click OK in the popup that gives you one last warning about deleting your data.
The restoration process will begin.

Click OK when the utility lets you know that the restoration is complete.
The computer will restart, and Windows will finish the recovery process.

Factory restore


If your particular eMachines model didn't come with recovery media or you just misplaced the disc, you don't want to be caught without a means to restore the operating system.


It's all too easy to accidentally download a virus or experience any number of problems that make your computer unstable.


However, there is an option for restoring your computer without the original recovery disc by using the pre-installed recovery software.


Use an external memory device such as a DVD, flash drive or external hard drive to back up the data you need to save from your eMachines computer.



Any data that isn't saved to an external source will be erased when the computer is restored to factory settings.



Remove any discs that are in the optical drive and unplug the computer's peripheral devices, such as an Ethernet cable or scanner.



Do not disconnect the keyboard, mouse or monitor.

Click the Windows "Start" menu and choose "All Programs."



Navigate to "eMachines" and choose "eMachines Recovery Management." Click the "Restore" tab.



Click "Password Settings" if you have not already set a recovery password. Type a new password in the text box and click "OK." Click "Restore System to Factory Default."



Type the recovery password and click "OK." Click "Next" to wipe the eMachines computer's hard drive and begin the recovery process.



Select "Finish" and wait for the eMachines computer to restart.



Use the series of installation prompts that appear on the screen to create a new user account for your operating system, set the system date and time, and set up your internet settings.



hope this helps

Hi Bartomk,

The orange button located on the right hand side of the keyboard is the One Key Recovery. If you want to bring back the default factory setting of your computer just use the OKR button.
note: if you process OKR all existing files on your drive C will be wiped out.

How to use OKR:

1. Turn off the computer completely.

2. While system is turned off press the OKR button.

3. You will be directed to the One Key Rescue system page.

4. Select restore system to the initial back up.
5. Wait until the progress bar reaches 100%.

6. Reboot your computer.

Hope it helps,

Thank you for using fixya

Wiped all files


Formatting a drive is not a complete loss. When you format a drive you wipe out the File Allocation Table (Hard Drive Index) and the data is mostly still in tact as long as nothing writes to the drive after the format.

The problem here is that you didn't just format your drive. You ran the system restore which means you formatted your drive, then wrote the factory defaults to your drive completely destroyed the data on your drive.

I can't offer your a solution for your data. I can offer you a solution that will prevent this from happening in the future.
Pick up an external USP hard drive. They have come down considerably in price now a days and for Around 70 to 200 dollars you can get a real nice drive. You want something between 200GB to 1TB.

Put your files on that external drive. If your computer blows up and you have to reformat, your files will be there after you recover your PC and replug in your drive.
