Do I restore laptop to factory settings after the plague of virus?
Invaded by virus quarantined files because they cannot be deleted. "System Restore" is not working now.
Can I restore laptop to factory again?
Of course you can do it. Please use recovery media delivered. On this way the unit will be to new factory settings. The installation is very simple.
I bought 2 new laptops, they seem to be special models not listed is not in the HP support site, purchased from Currys PC World in the United Kingdom.
First HP Pavilion 15-ab045sa laptop computer 15.6 "-red, upgraded to windows 10 perfectly well and I made a backup of the system while I studied the creation of recovery media (this info must be printed with the laptop in the box, rather than letting the user have to find BTW)."
The other a HP Pavilion 15-ab043sa laptop computer 15.6 "-blue, for my parents, has turned into a total disaster."
The two models are the same, except that the first is red and the other is blue, that's why they have different product numbers?
I was now in a position where the recovery on the D: drive partition is not a factory reset.
I did not even recovery disks as having the first one to go smoothly, I thought the same thing would happen on the second laptop and I got the recovery disc then. I tried to create a USB stick recovery, but I had no one who can save the system settings - need at least 32 GB free.
This occurred as first I started the laptop, made of windows, MS Office 365 updates, added then waiting 2 days for windows 10 to arrive. When it came it installed fine and then I added a printer driver for an HP printer and made some configurations of the operating system. At the next reboot showed something was wrong as the boot took over 7 minutes. As the synaptics app was referenced twice in the tab start Task Manager also had strange things in the system. Rather than go back to a previous system restore point that I attempted to identify what was wrong and uninstalled all without success. I then had the opportunity to go back to 8.1 for Windows or "reset the PC. Not a lot of explanation on delivery to zero and certainly no warning options that the D: partition was no longer valid. Windows options were "in my face" so I don't think watching HP recovery. So I chose to run from Control Panel 'Reset the PC and keep the files'. So, indeed, I now have a clean install of Windows 10 but have lost all applications that were on the factory orginal building. I see no way to re - install all of these programs and find the license keys. I have more HP recovery at all.
So I have no way to put the blue doesn't return to the factory settings.
Advice please, I want a laptop blue, the same as the red, i.e. Windows 10 with all applications that have come to the factory as well as the correct printer drivers and a time of less than 30 seconds of starting.
You are not sure if there is anything I can copy from red to blue to get it going again?
Any help gratefully appreciated, thank you

I need to restore this machine on the factory settings. Tried pressing the F11 key at startup to the top, but it does nothing
Boot Windows, hold down the Windows key and press R. In the run box, type compmgmt.msc , and then press ENTER. Click on management of the disks in the left pane and when loaded partitions, make a right click of the recovery Partition and mark it as 'active '. Close all open windows and then restart - if it worked, the laptop boot from the recovery Partition during the restart.
Let me know.

What happened after 3 different updates critical in the last 8 weeks or so... have my windows 7 64 bit set automatically download (and install) made critical. When this happens at 03:00 as expected, the next day when I log on my desk (after the automatic restart) my office back to the original "out of the box" settings. Wallpaper is changed, all my files are gone, including photos, videos, documents from Ms. If I use I can recover my files system/system restore.
Then, if I install the update again once, no problem. Always afraid that the restoration will not work but well.

virus of which seemed to be the blue screen of trust e-mail address caused. had been able to run the Startup Repair and system restore to get online after about 30 minutes of waiting. After a week might not be online at all. in a panic, I decided to bought computer to original settings. bad idea, I completely forgot all the photos I had saved over the years. are they completely disappeared now with the recovery, I did?
If it was a destructive restore to factory settings all data has been lost and if you did not save the data unrecoverable sound.
So, you may want your future stratergy to backup and what Antivirus program you install

I'm selling my Portege R830-10 q If I want to restore it to the settings to factory (out-of-box state) AND THEN TURN IT OFF.
I brought the laptop to factory settings successfully using the _TOSHIBA recovery Wizard_ and choosing * factory default software recovery (Recover State out-of-box) *. However, at the end of the process of recovery and after everything is back in place I was not able to TURN off the POWER to the laptop. It only gave me the option to restart. After rephrasing it, the Windows installation process starts.
I don't want to install Windows, i.e. language, keyboard, user account, etc. I want to leave the Windows installation for the person buying the laptop to me. How can I turn off the laptop after the recovery of the system without having to install Windows?
I would appreciate your help.
When the recovery process is complete and you are prompted for a reboot just press start button / stop and turn it off. I think it's only thing you can do.
Anyway, why not start Windows and go through the configuration option. New owner can modify this basic anyway parameters. As username Admin and language and the keyboard can be set as default.
For example, if you have a picture of German recovery set to German. New owner can change in any case.

I have a Lenovo ThinkCentre A52, which recently required a change of hard disk and the removal of a defective RAM 1 GB stick. When I bought my computer, it came with Windows XP Pro and the new hard drive that the updated computer has Windows XP Pro, but it seems to be missing a large part of the software (drivers and programs) that originally came with the computer, and even if I downloaded and installed most of them since the Lenovo Web site There are still some problems related to software that I can't fix. Ideally, I'd like to go back just to restore the system to the factory settings using the ThinkVantage Rescue and Recovery program, but I don't know if it will work. All programs and the necessary drivers will be installed again, even if my current hard drive is not 'knows' thereon? I need to get a Windows XP Pro installation CD, if I want to keep my operating system? Also, is it important that my current hard drive is half the previous, or that I now have half as much RAM?
After replacing the hard drive, the only way to restore it to the State of the plant is using the Lenovo installation diskettes. You can also ask if Lenovo has a solution to your problem without having to reinstall Windows.
You can download Lenovo drivers if they are not included on the installation disk. The size of your hard drive does not matter.
Lenovo - call to order recovery disks:
I'm certainly not great computer so I need some help on how I would be able to restore my laptop to factory settings, since I don't have disks for it at all. I HAD PURCHASEED IT OF A FRIEND OF A FRIEND AND ALL THEIR INFO IS ON IT AND I have JUST the WANT DELETED.
See which of these methods apply to you:
Vista recovery media obtain and/or use the Partition Recovery Vista on your computer to the factory settings .
There is no Vista free download legal available.
Contact your computer manufacturer and ask them to send a recovery disk/s Vista set.
Normally, they do this for a cost of $ small.
In addition, ask them if you have a recovery Partition on your computer/laptop to restore it to factory settings.
See if a manual provided with the computer or go to the manufacturer's website, email or you can call for information on how to make a recovery.
Normally, you have to press F10 or F11 at startup to start the recovery process...
Another way I've seen on some models is press F8 and go to a list of startup options, and launch a recovery of standards of plant with it, by selecting the repair option.
Also ask them if it is possible to do the recovery disk/s for the recovery Partition in case of a system Crash or hard drive failure.
They will tell you how to do this.
Every computer manufacturer has their own way of making recovery disk/s.
Or borrow a good Microsoft Vista DVD (not Dell, HP, Acer, recovery disk/s etc).
A good Vista DVD contains all versions of Vista.
The product key determines which version of Vista is installed.
There are 2 disks of Vista: one for 32-bit operating system, and one for 64-bit operating system.
If install a cleaning is required with a good DVD of Vista (not HP, Dell recovery disks):
At the startup/power on you should see at the bottom of the screen either F2 or DELETE, go to Setup/Bios or F12 for the Boot Menu
Go to your Bios/Setup, or the Boot Menu at startup and change the Boot order to make the DVD/CD drive 1st in the boot order, then reboot with the disk in the drive.
MS advice on the conduct of clean install.
A tutorial on the use of a clean install
Super Guide Windows Vista Installation
After installation > go to the website of the manufacturer of your computer/notebook > drivers and downloads Section > key in your model number > get latest Vista drivers for it > download/install them.
Save all data, because it will be lost during a clean installation.
See you soon.
