  1. (Noob) Returning a laptop. How do I reset to factory default?


    I didn't really do anything on it yet I've just found a better deal. I installed some games and that's about it. No real personal stuff done on it yet but online banking info cpl times etc. Paying bills. So I know how to uninstall things and erase things from the hard drive, but that's about the extent of my knowledge. Just wondering how I fully reformat the drive and set it back to factory default settings? Thanks all.

    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".
