Restoring To Factory Settings

Restoring To Factory Settings Icon

I want to restore my laptop to factory settings, but I don't have a Windows 7 installation CD. when I restore to factory settings (since I don't have another point to restore to), will my laptop be wiped completely? Since I don't have any installation CDs or anything, I don't want to restore it to factory settings if it'll wipe it completely.

My confusion of the distinction is: will it wipe my laptop blank or restore it to the point it was at when I started it following purchasing it (all the basic programs and such already installed)?

How to use Backup and Restore after restoring laptop to factory installed condition?

How to use Backup and Restore after restoring laptop to factory installed condition? Icon

I have recently had to restore my laptop to factory condition after a software install caused a serious system problem (I did this after other work arounds did not work. I was talked through this by my laptop manufacturer).

Without going into a lot of detail, my video driver had become corrupt, and not knowing what software installation caused the problem, I couldn't use system restore, and had no choice to restore back to factory settings, and then re-install my programs, and then upload my documents that I had saved on the external hard drive.

If I was in a similar position where system restore or any other work around didn't solve my problem, and I had to restore my computer back to factory condition, could I use the backups I made on my external hard drive using backup and restore to restore all of my programs, settings and documents, similar to system restore?

I can't restore Vaio to factory settings

I'm having problem restoring my Sony laptop to factory setting. Ever since my laptop crashed after a middle of restoring to factory setting. And every time I try to do the restore to factory setting it restart in the middle restoring factory setting, it goes to a black screen, and then just restarts.

I've even tried to re installing window vista, but for some reason I don't have a partition drive to install it on. So I'm just stuck with a black screen every time I start up, or attempt to restoring to factory setting.

I would like to restore my acer laptop to factory default settings using the acer erecovery tool, however I always get a 'hard drive configuration not set to factory defaults' error. I have also run acer erecovery using Alt F10 etc.

But when I got there, the 'restore to factory defaults' option was greyed out and I could only click exit.

 

Empty System Restore

I recently had some issues with my month old Dell N5050 Laptop that required I do a System Restore, After discovering that for some odd reason all my Restore files were gone, I restored the computer to Factory, I set up the Restore option, saved a Restore and made sure to keep some restores, about a week or two later here we are, and all my restore files are gone, I wanted to restore my computer to fix an issue I just posted in here, but I can't, and I really don't have the patience to do another Restore to factory.

1) How do I turn my System Restore back on?
2) How do I stop it from turning itself off and wiping all my restores?
3) Do you know why it's happening?

 

Cannot restore files from full file backup (error 0x81000011) -

Cannot restore files from full file backup (error 0x81000011) - Icon

I was running Vista SP1 on an HP system with an AMD 2.3GHz quadcore with 8GB of RAM. I used Vista Backup and Restore to perform a Full file backup before upgrading to Windows 7. The backup was placed on a secondary hard drive, and ran with no errors.

I then tried to upgrade from Vista to Windows 7. That was a trail of tears in and of itself, but after finally having to do Factory Restore back to Vista and then a fresh install of Windows 7, I succeeded in getting Windows 7 running.

I then ran the Restore utility to recover my full backup. The Recover worked on most all of our files, except a few ripped audio tracks and some others I can live without. Unfortunately, four video files that are personally valuable were not recovered.

Each is probably around 700MB. Here's the erorr messages from the Restore Files log:

Restore failed to restore the file: C:\Users\Public\Videos\2009-6 Much Ado About Nothing Eve Cast\20090619204427.m2ts. Error:The backup file is corrupted or missing. Check your hardware configuration or restore from a different backup. (0x81000011)

 

Restarting back to factory settings

Recently I started having trouble with my computer after downloading a program for a college class. I have been looking into ways to clean my PC since removing it. One way I keep coming across is that you should restore the computer every year.

My main question is if I use F10 while the computer is booting and use the restore to factory setting option will I lose Windows and all programs. or will my computer keep the programs it came with when I turned it on for the very first time, if that is the case I wouldn't mind because I really just use my computer for games and do not have anything major saved to it.

Guyx, I bought HP 4520s Laptop few months ago with installed windows 7, I installed lot of softwares in it, but now I want to restore factory settings, I know I can restore factory settings by pressing F11 at the PC startup so it starts windows setup, so I can click "REPAIR YOUR COMPUTER" to restore factory settings, but the problem is that whenever I hit F11 in PC startup it doesn't run windows setup, it shows a message that :

Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software might be the cause.To fix the problem.

1. Insert your windows installation disc and restart your computer.
2. Choose your language settings, and then click "NEXT".
3. Click "Repair Your Computer".

If you don't have this disc, contact your system administrator or computer manufacturer for assistance. Status: 0xc0000225

Info: The boot selection failed because a required device is inaccessible. Here is the screen-shot of that failure message:
