    Need to reset computer to factory settings


    My computer went into automatic repair and it couldn't repair it. I have tried resetting my computer from all the advanced options and none of them are working. I can get to system restore and to the config, boot and security options. I think I need to reset to factory key settings. Windows 10 came installed on my computer - will it still be there if I choose this option. (I have a Lenovo laptop and it has the NOVO button for OKR, but apparently it can't find the OKR file because I don't get the option to restore from initial backup as documented in their help.) Thank you.

    :)

  2. Reset to factory settings


    No I love Windows 10.....but my computer was acting strange so I thought I would do a factory reset and put Windows 10 back onto my computer.

    If I do create a bootable Windows 10 would I lose the recover drive information that comes with the computer?

    Could you give me the steps to create a bootable of Windows 10.....I asked HP if there was anyway I could get Windows 10 put on it while they had it and they said no.

    Thank you.

    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".

    Reset to factory settings


    Hi,. I have an HP Envy Phoenix with 1 Tb hard drive....64 bit.

    It was originally a Windows 7 computer that I upgraded to Windows 10. I decided to do a factory reset and set it to start Friday night andwhenI looked at it Saturday it was still going.....12 hours. I restarted the computer and it started up with the HP symbol and a turning circle.....then HP symbol goes away but the spinning circle remains.

    I got on the phone with HPsupport and he tried a few things that didn't work.....computer goes to HP as soon as the box gets here.

    Any suggestions....I hate to be without my computer.

    .thanks
