Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

Would like to set it back tofactory settings - PC Desktops

Answers :

Most computers come with a recovery disk or a different partition on the hard drive that this information is stored. There different ways to get to it, depending on you rmachine's make, brand, and sometimes model #. If it came with a disk? Usually with moset modern computers, you press either f8 or f12 at boot up to get to the "boot menu". BEFORE YOU DO THIS!!! remember all your information, ie pictures, music and documents, like favorites, e-mail addresses, and resumes etc. Will ALL BE GONE!! Back this stuff up.
\015\012Also remember to maybe go and download any drivers you may need (if you do not have them on disk) especially your network drivers.
\015\012Ok so now, Put your restore disk into your disk drive, then press the f-key to get into the boot menu (this is ususally displayed on screen) then you will see a different menu pop-up with choices, select your dvd or cd-rom drive. Then your computer will boot from this disk (you may have to press any key to boot from drive) then follow the instructions and good luck!
\015\012Hope this helps

Sometimes it’s necessary to restore a computer to the original default\015\012settings. This is often needed when a vital file becomes corrupted.\015\012Restoring a computer to its original factory settings also cleans up\015\012the C drive and removes all the viruses and old programs that bog down\015\012a computer and make it slow and unresponsive. However, restoring a\015\012system should be a last ditch effort in trying to repair a computer,\015\012since restoration causes all programs and many files to be lost\015\012forever. Restoring an Acer computer to its original factory settings\015\012can be done in a few easy steps.
