How To Connect To Internet After Reset Computer Back To Factory Settings?


I just reset my computer in my bedroom back to factory settings and im trying to connect the internet and i cant figure out how. I do the thing on the control panel, network, wizard, and all that stuff and nothing happened. The computer im on now is on wifi but my bedrooms computer's wifi card (or something) is broken, or thats what the at&t internet dude told me. So i run my computer's internet over a usb cable and that worked fine but now i cant create a connection and i don't want to have to make my mom call at&t and all that stuff for a guy to come out to our house.

Restoring Laptop Back To Factory Settings

I think my laptop (acer 7720g) has got a virus because it freezes everytime i click the internet explorer icon to enable me to connect to the web. I have been advised by some of my friends to restore my laptop back to the factory settings, and in this way i could get rid of the virus. I shall be grateful if some one can kindly answer the following questions -

1. Would restoring the laptop back to factory settings get rid of the virus and enable me to connect to the internet as normal?

2. If so, how do i restore the company settings?

2. I have also been advised that there is no disc/cd available by which i can restore the laptop to the factory settings and that windows vista has an in built feature for doing this? Is that true? If so, how do i go about using it?

3. Finally, once i get my laptop up and running, i am thinking of putting on norton 360 anti virus. In your opinion, is this good anti virus software?

Limited To No Connectivity After Restoring To Factory Settings

I restored my dell to factory settings and everything was fine. I was trying to get my d-link antenna to work. I pulled out the air card while the computer was on and i'm wondering if i screwed something up. Everything seems to work fine except i cannot get onto the internet directly. I tried all the basic fixes like shutting down the cable modem and router and putting them back on. My laptop connects fine and the ethernet cable is fine. I tried repairing it going through network connections and that did nothing.

How To Restore Asus Notebook Factory Settings ?

How do i restore my asus notebook to its factory settings?

Answer:-
Your system probably has a 'recovery partition', which you can load by pressing one of the function key when you boot your system. One manual for an asus m50 series says that you need to press the f9 key at bootup and follow instructions, though this may not work with your particular model. Of course, depending on what options your recovery software has, this may overwrite any important documents currently on your system. I'd consider booting off of a live linux cd like 'puppy linux', then use a usb drive to backup any important documents on the hard drive before 'restoring' the operating system.

Restore Toshiba Laptop To Factory Settings

How do i restore my toshiba laptop to factory settings? I've pretty much tried everything, it didn't come with a recovery disk and when i restarted my computer and pressed whatever i pressed it only asked me to do memory diagnostics and to restore system settings with a restore point that i had to set that only set it to a recent point in time, which sucks. I got the computer in 08 and it runs windows vista if that helps any.

Restore Compaq Laptop To Factory Settings

How can i restore my compaq laptop to factory settings? Ok basically my computer is a mess and i want to make it like it was when i bought it.

Restore Hp Mini 110 To Factory Settings

My netbook hp mini 110 is started to run slower than it normally does. I think this is because i have too many programs installed and it's running low on memory. I am thinking about restoring it to factory settings. My netbook is running windows 7 home premium, but it came with windows 7 starter. Will restoring it set it back to starter? Also, what will happen once my netbook is set back to default factory settings? How long will it take?

Cmos Checksum Error - Reset To Default Settings

Yesterday i got my new atc-210 case and pc power and cooling turbo cool 425 powersupply. So i transfered everything from my old case into the new one and put in the new powersupply and i added an old 20gb hard drive i found in my basement. So i try to turn on the computer and it turns on for a split second and then turns off. I kept trying to turn it on hoping it will finally turn on but it doesnt. So i call pc power and cooling and they say that it is the over voltage protection working so one of my components is messed up. So i remove the 20gb hard drive i put in. The computer turns on now but i get nothing on my monitor. So i remove my 9800 pro and put in my old geforce 4 mx card. Now my monitor is working but i realize that the computer is not booting. It shows the biostar symbol then goes to the part where it performs checks on the computer system and at the bottom says cmos checksum error. Reset to default settings and just stays on that screen.

How To Restore Sony Vaio Laptop Factory Settings ?

How do i restore my sony vaio laptop to its factory settings?

Answer:-

Vista factory reset

This will not work if you haven't a pre installed os held in a partition. So, you have nothing to lose give it a go. I assume vista as you don't mention what your os is

Switch off your pc completely and clear the working area. You're ready to go: - on switching on, from a completely off situation, immediately and repeatedly¯ hit f10 (can be manufacture dependant) as it runs up, it'll show/allow you the options, for example repair your computer¯ select this. Answer a couple other obvious questions but, you're looking for their top option e.g. Full destructive recovery¯ this is what you're after. Don't be shy, it will ask many more times, do you really want to do this¯ just keep clicking yes please. 1. This course of action will take about ten minutes and if you haven't saved any files that you might like to have kept its now too late. Remember this will take it back to the day you purchased. So, you can install any subsequent software, printer drivers for example, at a much later date. 2. Sit back and watch while it does its thing¦then bing its back and talking to you, to help you set up your new purchased pc. I suggest you install your (for you i suggest norton 3 user from tescos £24, that's 8 quid each, fit and forget. ) Or some such anti virus now. You'll need to update your system; this can be lengthy, boring and defiantly time consuming. Might i suggest you leave it on, connected, to your modem while you're in bed asleep while these updates arrive?

Restore Windows Xp To Factory Settings On Dell Desktop

Restoring windows xp to factory settings on a dell desktop. My family's desktop computer is riddled with viruses, so need to restore it to factory settings. All data backed up. With my old laptop i did the restoring thing a couple of times - in start up mode you press f11 i believe? But that was a sony, does that still work with dell?

I know sometimes you need a disc to reinstall windows xp but am not sure if the computer came with one (it's very old), and if it did, i doubt i'd be able to find it!

How Do I Connect A Computer To Internet?

I'm trying to set up a computer to the internet, since it's going to be used for storing all my music and itunes stuff. It's the same type of computer as my main one (hp pavilion dv1000), but instead of saying "wireless network connection" when i put the mouse over the internet connection icon, it says "wireless network connection 2. " I don't know if that makes a difference, but i can't connect it to the internet. It's right next to my main computer, who's signal strength is very good, but it says that there's no wireless networks in range. Is there any way to fix that? I tried right clicking and repairing it, but it stopped at "connecting to the wireless network. "

Computer Reboots When Connect To Internet

I have an old computer that is currently windows xp sp3. It works perfectly fine, up until i connect to the internet. I have wireless internet and 3 computers, 1 laptop, and an xbox that connect to it. Its only 1 of my computers that have this problem, and they are all xp sp3. If i start my computer with the antenna in it, not even 5 seconds when its turned on, it reboots. When i turn it on w/o the antenna, it stays on and has the message saying that it just recovered from a failure or something that like. But it doesn't turn off, when i connect the antenna, it reboots itself. Right now, im going to unchecked the setting that reboots the computer during system failure and see what it does from there. Edit:- ok, i unchecked reboot when system failure, and the bsod popped out and said

*** Stop: 0x000000d1 (0x002135b5, 0x0000000z, 0x00000000, 0xf764dcd9)

*** Rt2500.sys -address f764dcd9 base f7637000, datestamp 42676c99

Then when i turned it on, it said that the system recovered from serious error.
