Do i need to disconnect charger for a factory restore?
NO , never,
if the big laptop , is old NONE TOLD, and that huge battery is bad as most are old, I'd remove it and run on only the AC/DC power pack
laptops PCs have to have bad huge batteries even 1 year old abused.
charger = AC/DC POWER PACK.
The charger is actually deep inside the PC> (a chip by same name)
no PC told but if you read the manual ,chapter recover, sure
it many leave out details, they assume the PC is 100% hardware prefect and is only a dream of data only geeks.

How do we find out how to get our login information so that we can log on to the internet?
what a great question and so clear !!
well there are only 2 ways. (safe)
1: call your ISP and ask them. if they own
the router ask them.
some IPS put sticker tag bottom? of PC with credentials.
2: if however the router is owned
by you, the answer is inside YOUR router, and is covered in your Router manual, by exact model #
the 3 things to set are
- SSID (broadcasted name) I use dogs name use a name only you know so when seeing 50 others in the hood you know right away that REX123 is you.
- set encryption to WPA2
- SET WIKI PASS PHRASE TO WHAT YOU WANT, and is case sensitive...
- never use AD HOC mode or open wifi if seen.
- nor WEP
- nor WPS or PIN.
go to makers web site if router is netgear go there. get your free manual and keep it PDF.on your PC.
then read settings page.

Hi, I have a HP mini 1000, running windows XP, how can I reset it to factory?
you talked to everyone but not hp.com
forum at HP.com
why skip direct HP help.
1: if data is not backed up we do that first. ask.
2: next we test he hdd as no OS on earth runs on bad hdd., ask.
3: hp,com see your manual read and read chapter title RECOVERY.
1,2,3 if hdd is bad and replace step 3 fails for image file
and now you need installer media, ask . XP is dead 2014 zero MS support.
