Dell :: Restoring To Factory Settings?

Jun 8, 2009

I don't use it very much; it's more a backup machine and the occasional Skype to grandkids. Been having a problem with being unable to use windows update; keeps getting an 8007005 error.

Googling reveals a lot of folks with the same problem, some different fixes, and mixed success stories. I've tried several of the fixes with no luck and probably made things worse than they were before (now Defender won't update).....

Acer :: 5920 Restoring To Factory Settings

Mar 3, 2009

to put laptop back to factory settings, so I done the Alt/F10 on the Acer logo page to take me to the page to start this. On the Acer eRecovery Management Page I use the restore system to factory default, when I do this I get a message saying D2D32 - Type mismatch and then hangs there forever until you turn it off. I was reading on here about that error code and done what it said to do to make sure that it was enabled and it is.

I have rang Acer and they said theres nothing they can do as it out of warranty, by 24 days

He didnt make any recovery discs and hes pissed at me because this has happened! am not happy myself, as I rebooted 3 other acers with no problems.

Would he need to purchase disks or can they be got free?

Acer :: Aspire V3 / Restore Factory Settings Not Opening In Windows 8

Nov 7, 2014

I have an Aspire V3 which has become very crippled. As the laptop was not in my care before now, I had tried to use the Restore Factory Settings option in the Recovery Management tool, however when I click the button to restore, nothing happens.
 
I have tried running windows 8 in safe mode as well as pressing alt-f10 on start up. Nothing seems to be working. Is there any way I can reset this short of using a pre-made recovery disc?

Acer :: Restoring Factory Defaults, Aspire 5930g

Nov 8, 2008

I decided to restore my aspire 5930g laptop to factory defaults, and started out with creating the restoration discs. At this point, i wasn't really aware that one could restore from the harddrive.

So i booted up the discs and started the restoration process. But now, the dialog tells me to insert the third disc, while i only have two. What should i do? I could try to kill the restoration process and start over from the harddrive, but im afraid to harm the system.

I am trying to restore a corrupted M5 to factory defaults. Since the HDD was corrupted, the Acer eRecovery would not work. I purchased the Recovery Media CD set, changed BIOS to boot from CD, disabled secure Boot.

The HDD is 500GB, C: drive is 450GB and 415GB free.

Dell XPS M1330 :: Restore / Reset To Factory Settings?

Jan 31, 2015

i have a 2008 Dell XPS M1330 laptop that i wish to restore to factory settings.  i have saved/copied/transferred any/all files i wish to save.

i have searched (google, you tube, dell.com, forums, support) for the answer and all i find is suggested use of pressing F8 during start up.  when i choose 'repair my system" , windows just loads normally.

the only seemingly 'recovery' disk i can locate says: 

DRIVERS AND UTILITIES Already installed on your computer/For reinstalling Dell xps m1330 computer software. it also says: contents: device drivers/diagnostics and utilities.

i want to 'wipe the slate clean' and start the computer fresh now that i have a new xps8700. if i use this disk to which i refer, will it do what i am wanting?  the computer works fine, but i'm afraid of screwing something up trying to just clean it up and back to original condition.

how to restore / reformat an Inspiron 720 to factory settings? Its 6 years old now and in need of a reformat.online ive found several answers all suggest pressing F8 on system stsrtup and doing it there.however when i do that and choose Repair My PC i then only get 5 options

-Startup Repair
-System REstore
-System Image REcovery
-Windows Memory Diagnosticss
-Command PRompt

None of these seem to allow me to reset my PC to its original state.I didnt have a disc with the PC, there is a recovery partition on the hard drive so i presume i should br able to reformat from that.

Dell :: Latitude D600 Recover Back To Factory Settings

Feb 23, 2009

I have a Dell Latitude D600 which i bought a few months ago second hand, It came with charger and thats it. No recovery disk or nothing. Laptop worked perfect and is a really good laptop. However I have so many viruses on my laptop, I have ran all types of AVG's, adware scanners, and much more. Its cleared alot of the viruses but still the laptop is not working properly.

I would like to restore the laptop back to its factory settings, i have backed up all my data on an external harddrive so its all good. I checked on google and it says something about Pressing F11 + Ctrl or something like that and it has a recovery procedure in the laptop allready. I dont think D600 has that feature and guessing i need a recovery disk. I have looked on ebay and cant find any, Im not even sure what type of recovery disk to get because i found a few, prices were ranging from 30-35 and i cant afford that as i am a student.

Is there a way where i can download some sort of recovery software for dell and burn it onto a disk or something, I looked on google but there is no detailed sources telling me about this,

how i can restore my dell latitude D600 back to its brand new settings without having to buy the recovery disk.
