Restore to factory state out of the box. Can I install all updates from Microsoft using Windows update or can I install antivirus first before to connect to internet?

Currently Windows Vista Home Premium SP1 x 86 (no patches since 2008). Currently, it has no AV and has not been connected to the internet yet. It will be behind a router.

I had to redo the factory already reset after be connected to the net for 20 minutes and then a bunch of programs kept crashing saying Data Execution Prevention had to close the program StackHash and BEX error when executing update for HP drivers.

Maybe I installed Kaspersky first next time?

What should I do?

Thank you!


No problem. Install the updates. You can install the anti-virus later.

Just don't start browsing the inet by updating.

    I don't know if your note is a US or European but manual model displayed must be the American version.
    In any case, its operation is quite similar.
    Laptop comes with preinstalled OS (recovery image) also saved original recovery image on the HARD drive.
    If long HDD is not defective and laptop to factory settings you will be able to install the HARD drive recovery image.
    If you check this page 56 s manuals, you can see explanation and detailed instructions how to create a recovery media (USB) that you can use if the HARD drive is faulty or the installation of HARD drive recovery won start t (your situation).

    I presume you didn't create this recovery USB support so now you have a problem. After your own installation of OS version your NB does not have factory settings anymore and you will not be able to access the recovery image recorded and the ability to boot the recovery image installation. Only way to have once again is installation of recovery using recovery media image.

  • Satellite A660-17F - no option "restore to out of the box.


    I have a laptop of toshiba a660-17th with windows 7 64 bit.
    It's fantastic and I got it for at least 3 years.

    It came not with all drives, and there the recovery partition.

    Some time ago my hard drive broke down. I had to replace it with a new.
    I thought that the recovery partition would have gone and I would have had to install win 7 on some CDs.
    But in fact the recovery partition was still there after replacing hard drive! Windows 7 installed easily.

    Recently, I tried to start from scratch and reinstall win 7, but after the restart and going in the menu where you should be able to do, there is no option!

    Need help please, what can I do?

    Recovery partition is still there, but it won't let me bring my toshiba back to factory State.

    {quote} It came not with all drives, and there the recovery partition. {quote}
    There was an interesting note in the manual on the recovery disk.
    It could be created using the tool from Toshiba called creative recovery media (disc)
    But since the HARD drive died in the past, recovery Toshiba image files are lost.

    You're talking about the Toshiba recovery partition or partition of Windows repair?

    How and which replaced the HARD drive? This disc has been used in order to reinstall Windows 7?

    To my knowledge such recovery partition would be created only by using the Toshiba recovery disc. This is why I m wondering about your statement.

    However, if you n t have a recovery disc, you can order the media here:

  • Vista is back to the out of the box

    My vista computer would not start Windows, then turned and turn it back on and it returned to the State of the box outside.  Lost all my information?  It can be corrected?

    Hi TCrochet,

    (a) have what specific actions you taken to retrieve the computer from any starting state?

    (b) you are able to boot to the desktop now?

    To confirm, is that what your computer looks like it was when you opened it first? Original settings?

    If you used the option to restore (provided by the manufacturers of computers) factory to recover the computer of any State to start, fear of DATA stored on the computer are lost.

    You can contact the manufacturer of your computer to retrieve DATA or you can search online for the third party software that will help you recover DATA from the computer.

    Note: Microsoft cannot guarantee that problems resulting from the use of third-party software can be solved. Software using third party is at your own risk.

    Obtaining recovery Vista Media and/or use the Partition Recovery Vista on your computer, to return 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.


    You can also make 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 way of doing recovery disk/s.


    Or borrow a good Microsoft Vista DVD (not Dell, HP, 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):

    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.

    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

    Last night, I took my laptop HP Pavilion 17 t Touch brand new out of the box and it is so slow.  The startup is slow.  All operations running slow.  The use of the internet is slow.  I tried to transfer files from Carbonite on this new computer and just the process of realization of this installation took me a half hour.  This morning I had to reboot and it took 5 minutes.  I only know enough about computers to be dangerous, so I don't mess with many settings myself.  This performance unacceptible on a new computer.  This is certainly the slowest computer I've ever owned.  All solutions that anyone can offer (as a reminder, I need instructions step by step)

  • A wi - fi network reset to "out of the box.


    Sorry to ask what may be a very basic question, but how do you define a wireless router - more WiFi settings of your laptop - back to the way they were when they came out the box? In other words, I want wireless and portable routers that I forget they know so that I can set up my wireless network again as if I put for the first time.

    The reason is a little involved, but for the most part, I had a set up wi - fi network and launched from a Terminal Airport Express and it worked very well. During the holidays I then bought an Airport Extreme because I wanted something a little better for my base unit and then I wanted to use the Express as an Extender. How I wanted to now, I had not tinkered with something that was not broken, as the addition of the extreme for the network was not as simple as I was expecting and my wi - fi network everything seems to go wrong, like my internet connection. I had someone to configure two routers (understand I can I have messed up a setting when I was trying to implement) but still no luck - he would work for a bit and then my internet would just go down. Using Airport utility, showed that routers and internet will run for a few seconds and then would stop and I would lose the connection.

    I work and live on a college campus for the internet at home is powered by an ethernet into the wall jack, just as you would in an office. Through contact the COMPUTING helpdesk, they managed to tell me (although partly because of techno speak and a little bit of a language barrier that English isn't the first language here) I got away from. What I could gather was something like the two routers SSID must be different because they were "beating" and this caused the network to automatically shut down at home? Unfortunately they treat only to provide internet service home and cannot help with the problems of wi - fi.

    I am pursuing other means to help (we are a University of science and technology research, after all!), but something I thought was if I could just reset routers and WiFi my laptop 'memory' of the network and start over as if I was there for the first time. I don't want to plug the router and it says something like "this was part of the XX network."

    Anyone know how?

    Thank you very much

    To configure your router from Apple to its "out-of-the-box" configuration, you must perform a ' default ' reset on this subject.

    For the laptop, if it's a Mac, then you will need to follow these steps for "erase it."

    Start with the first steps (1 - 1). If that is not accomplish what you're looking for, go to step 2.

    1a. remove preferred networks

    System Preferences > network > Wi - Fi > advanced > tab Wi - Fi

    Under "Preferred networks", delete the networks you use regularly in the list.

    1B. Airport deleted keychain entries

    Launch the application "Keychain Access", located in Applications/Utilities.

    In the windows on the left side: Select login for keychains and "All items" category.

    Click on the 'Genre' filter at the top and search all "AirPort network password" entries... and remove them.

    1 c. Add Network favorite (s)

    System Preferences > network > Wi - Fi > advanced > tab Wi - Fi

    Add preferred networks using the button «+»

    Restart or disconnect you, then back in.

    2. move the System Configuration files

    (Note: you will need to restore your network connection settings.)

    Go to Macintosh HD/Library/Preferences

    Move the SystemConfiguration folder on the desktop.

    Restart your Mac. (Note: OS X will rebuild the folder & files that are now sitting on your desk in the library > location of preferences.) If this does not resolve the problem, you can move the folder back to its original location.)

  • Slow... Right out of the box - HP ENVY 15t, w7 pro

    Build is below.

    I've had this laptop since end of August 2014. He soon right out of the box. Technical support has been of little help and suggested that I needed a HP service called Smart Friends. At a cost that is an option I did not wish to engage with a laptop that was only 3 weeks at the time. I called tech support twice on this slow condition, they escape to the frustrating and boring.

    I created an operating system/repair disk and restore as one point of my first orders of operations by getting this laptop. Those who have not helped. The purpose of this laptop is strictly for use when travelling to which I've not yet done. I guess I could have a total of 5-6 hours of use on this computer. My HP desktop computer is my main computer.

    For example, in MS config I have which where only 3 vital elements are checked and it still takes 75 to 80 seconds of power to display the windows desktop. It takes 40 seconds to load control panel if you click on it, I get the blue wheel. I created a unique 26KO word doc. When I click to open, I get the blue wheel that is opening the document. It is simply not true. I spent more time troubleshooting this new laptop to use it for its intended purpose.

    I thought about safe mode or a clean boot. I don't have to. I did a system restore and a clean install once already.


    -Microsoft Security Essentials

    -Office 2010 about 6 weeks after taking possession.

    -Malware Bytes

    Again, it was slow, until I loaded one of these three programs on this laptop.

    It's with or without being connected to the internet.

    I need an original system disk if all the one I created is just a mirror of what can happen?

    Clues that performance results did not appear my search on?

    Thank you...

    SECOND QUESTION: what happens if none is the process to factory reset a C Series codec if for some reason, unable to use the serial port?

    Thank you.


    Only one of the memory banks must be populated with a version of the software out of the box.

    The second question depends on which codec C series you mean. C20 can be hard reset (power button sequence) while C40, C60 and C90 cannot and must be done either through web series, touch, telnet or ssh where each of them except series requires a network connection.
