Having problems with your Gateway MT6840 Notebook ?

Need to set back to factory settings

\015 How to set back to factroy settings\015

Answers :

Try rebooting then perss the F1 key when the manufacturer's splash screen (not Windows) comes up. You should see something like F1 Setup located at the bottom of the screen...this is when you should press F1. As long as your press F1 after the screen boots but before Windows loads, you should enter the BIOS setup utility.

Here you should find an option to reset to default. I believe you would press F9 after entering the BIOS in order to reset to default.

This link will provide an image and more information from the Gateway Web site.


Hope this helps...

There are a few ways you can do that, when you start up your pc at the top left corner it will say press f11 for recovery, it will only give you a few seconds to press it, if you press it you will be given options on how to start your recovery, or you can goto your start menu goto programs then scroll to system recovery, or you can restart your pc with the recovery disc that came with laptop to start system recovery.
