    Factory Reset after Clean Install


    Hey! I had to clean install last day.. because i had some issues with booting the PC. Because of that, theres no pre-installed programs and drivers, the laptop had when i bought him. I was wondering if i perform a Factory Reset with "Keep my files" option.. Will it rollback to the state it was previously on.. with antivirus, drivers, some basic HP programs.. or will it rollback to the clean install one? Thanks :Really appreciate ur time.

    :)

    Hello darrylwelch,

    If factory reset doesn't works, I suggest you to make clean install.

    How to factory reset Cisco 1700 Router

    Hopefully I can help you here....its a very common thing to happen.


    First, I take it you dont know the passwords for console access or telnet/ssh?

    I will assume that these devices belong to you.

    step 1. Plug a cisco console cable into a serial port on your pc
    step 2. Plug other end into Cisco console port
    step 3. Using hyperterm or putty or similar connect to the serial port
    step 4. boot router, and make sure you clearly can see the output (this confirms you have good serial comms)
    step 5. if this fails, adjust the comm port settings (9600, 8,1,n are the default)
    step 6. now you have to do the only hard part...send the break command:

    Break command list: Break Commands

    Go down the list and match your OS and SW and try the sequence suggested.

    If this fails several times do what I do: Install putty (free) and then to send a break so you can get into rommom just hit "ctrl-a b".
