The BIOS is an interface between the hardware and the software, and it also contains basic testing for all components (POST). If the computer doesn't pass the BIOS phase it will not work at all !!!

Can u enter into the BIOS settings ? Do a BIOS reset, by shorting the proper jumper (see user manual) or by removing the BIOS battery for 5 seconds and then reinsert it (in the same position + to + and - to - !!!)

i don't know what u mean by a recovery ?!

Do the linux test if u can ! because if it works all u nead is a SO reinstall .... if not ... u can test the harddrive and memories on an another copmuter, and if they are good but the comp still doesn;t work something is damaged and u;ll have to get it to a service or replace the component ....

I don't now old code what I can do


Factory reset.
Enter code wrong several times.That may give you the option.
Failing that, try looking online for your phone's recovery boot.
Boot into recovery and use that to factory reset.

Should be plenty of instructions on google.

I caNT RESET MY FACTORY DEFAULT SETTINGS FOR MY ACER ASPIRE 3680 COMPUTER


How to restore your computer to factorysettings without a disk?
If original andfairly new: While Booting Up.

Dell XP = Ctrl+F11
Dell Vista = F8
EEEPC = Esc
Compaq = F11
HP Desktop Vista = F11
Emachine = F10
Acer = Alt+F10

Every manufacture has or uses different Function Key combinations to do a Factory Default Recovery. Also if it didn't come withdisks there is normally a program in the menus to create your own set of recovery CDs. This must be done before you ever putanything on the recovery partition d:, if you used d: for anything you need toremove what you put there or the recovery will not function.(As soon as yourcomputer is turning on press the F10 key and it will take you to the systemrecovery screen, click on the advanced option and click Destructive recoveryand click next. WARNING: before doing this backup anything on your computer youwant to keep pictures, videos, music etc. This will delete everything that didnot come pre-loaded from the factory, so if you have pictures of Aunt Fae'sClass reunion you should probably back those up if you want to keep them.)

I want to reset it


@lslchrisorei

Toshiba laptops have a built-in recovery mode on the system wherein you don't need to use a disc to restore it to factory default (if that's what you mean by "I want to reset it". The hotkey for the recovery is the 0 key (don't use the key on the numpad). To activate it, you need to turn the computer off, then you need to hold the 0 key then turn the computer back ON. If you hear a continuous beep, you can let go of the key and It will then say "Windows is loading files" and will proceed with System Recovery. If this doesn't work, that means that this computer doesn't have the hidden partition for you to restore the unit to factory defaults (either it's faulty or it's not there) and you need to order the recovery discs from Toshiba at 1-800-457-7777 (for US) and for Canada, it's 1-800-663-0378.

If you're still under warranty, they'll give it to you for free.

Cheers

I cant get factory settings on my computer My hard drive wont work properly Ihavent got any memory.Computer very slow Please explain in laymans terms Obliged


1. Factory settings on computer.
There really isn't "factory settings" to reset. Well it isn't simple as that. There is the BIOS which can be reset to "default settings" for the BIOS. Also most brand name computers come with a recovery feature, in which you can recovery/restore the computer back to original factory defaults with original software all installed. Therefore the computer's operating system (usually windows) will be running with the programs like it would run if you were to buy the same new laptop.

2. Hard drive won't work properly.
You can give the hard drive a test using the hard drive's company's hard drive testing software which can be download from their site. The software would test the hard drive to make sure nothing physical is wrong and the hard drive is functioning like normal.

3. Haven't got any memory. Computer very slow.
You can always buy more memory. If windows says it's running out of memory. That means there is too many software running in the background.

Comment if you want more explained.
