Hi bgreenejr,
\015\012
\015\012Are you referring to the BIOS or OS?
\015\012
\015\012If you’re referring to the BIOS settings, you can do this by accessing it and selecting "set to factory default" from the menu. The most common way to access it is by pressing the DEL button upon boot up; there are however, a lot of branded PC and laptops may use a different button like F2 or F12, etc; if you’re BIOS is locked, of course you’ll need the password to log-in.
\015\012
\015\012Another and common method of resetting it to factory default is by shorting the CMOS reset jumper located in your motherboard, usually it’s the closest jumper to the battery or the CMOS chip. This does not require any password, actually this is the method used if you forget your BIOS password. I would suggest that you consult your motherboard or computer’s documentation on how to locate the CMOS reset jumper on it.
\015\012
\015\012If you are referring you your operating system, the only sure way to reset it to default settings is if you do a clean install, that means re-formatting your pc and re-doing everything again, kinda messy, unless you can do a system restore that would revert it back to the original date and time when you first install the system, . Hope this helps
