Question about Fujitsu AMILO D-7820 Notebook
I ned to restore my computer to its factory default settings and completely wipe the hard-drive. However, I am unsure how to do this on my computer as it does not explain how to in the manual. Does anyone know how?
System Configuration of Fujitsu Amilo D-7820 PC Notebook:
Fixed RAM: 0MB
Standard RAM: 128MB
Maximum RAM: 2GB
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.

Ser guides are here:
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.

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
