I have an ASUS MeMO Pad 7 inch non HD keep that in mind total different situation. But I cannot Factory Hard Reset it by using any normal button combinations or reset button. I have done a lot of research but have come up empty. The reasoning behind the need to perform factory reset is the number pin to log in was forgotten. Yea, yea I know I should not use it but it happened so non the less any ideas?

Preferred Solution: Asus MeMo Pad 7 Inch non-HD will not factory reset

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

So you can't get to the factory reset menu? Holding the power button will turn the tablet off right?

Hi everyone reset and Asus factory Windows 8.1 I recently purchased an Asus G JM RoG laptop and was concerned with some of the issues I've been reading about the factory reset procedure on the newer models On the older models I've had to factory reset it was as easy as pressing F on boot and selecting to reset the laptop to factory settings no boot disc USB or Windows CD key was required these computers ran on Windows My computer came with Windows factory installed and I had some questions regarding factory reseting this laptop in case it's required in the Windows 8.1 and Asus factory reset future Can I still press F while booting and factory reset this computer without needing any sort of recovery CD or my Windows CD key as with past models Another question regarding the new quot refresh quot and quot reset quot options built into Windows and is the reset basically the same thing as the Asus Factory reset on the older models or is it a different method It seems that on almost all the guides I've looked at people are having issues with needing a recovery CD and their CD key is there a difference in the two options Does the windows reset still work off the Asus Recovery Partition or if the need arises should I boot into F Thanks for the help everyone

You should create a Recovery Drive

Always backup your data on a regular basis.

You may also create a disk image or your entire computer using something like Mascrium Reflect (Free). If anything happens to the drive, you could restore the image to your computer.

Hi all Recently my computer has Can't Reset (ASUS)--Looking 8.1 Windows on ISO Factory for been encountering problems involving speed and whatnot and I have found no method of fixing them I have been looking to reset my PC and went to do so through the Can't Factory Reset on Windows 8.1 (ASUS)--Looking for ISO built-in tool that is supplied on my ASUS laptop by pressing F at startup I chose to reset my PC but it returned an error saying the recovery partition couldn't be found So I went to do so through the PC settings and it rebooted my computer and told me the reset failed I checked and found the recovery partition using MiniTool Partition Wizard so it still exists Apparently this is an error other ASUS users have found after updating to Windows I don't know how to solve this problem and figured I may as well reinstall a fresh copy of Windows without all the ASUS bloatware and garbage So I hunted for a Windows ISO file and failed I've tried multiple methods One involving using a product key to download Windows to an ISO file through Microsoft's Windows Setup and that failed because the product key was OEM BIOS-based and not retail So I'm stuck between two problems here I can either try and do a factory reset by somehow fixing the recovery partition through some miracle or With extreme luck find a Windows Core ISO setup and install that and refind the drivers for my PC Any help would be gladly appreciated for either PS sorry for the overly-long sloppy post it's really late and I'm too tired to think properly Apologies for my stupidness

The factory reset key must be pressed and held down as soon as you turn the netbook on. If you press it too late it won't work. Some BIOS features such as the 'Boot Booster' apply only to certain models in the 901 range.

Factory Restore is to the state it was when you first got it.
You will then need to run 4 years worth of Windows Updates bit by bit - don't be tempted to allow Windows to update them all in one go. Choose them in block of say 10, chronologically, restarting the system carefully each time.

If warranty is already expired, why do you need a factory recovery ? ( when everybody usually want a clean install ). I am at a loss here.

In a MBR partitioned disk, giving OEM Recovery partition the "Active" mark can be used to kick start the recovery process. However GPT partition scheme changes everything and this old trick won't work anymore. If the installation image inside the "Recovery" partition is in "WIM" format, you may be able to manually restore the OS from it.

1. Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Free: Certainly yes. MBAM Free is an effective on-demand scanner and also adept at removing malware. Just remember to run a scan regularly, as the free version do not offer real-time protection and automatic scanning.2. CCleaner: Yes. Don't use the Registry Cleaner option, though.3. Adblock Plus: Yes. If you use Chrome however then I recommend uBlock, which is less resource intensive than Adblock Plus.4. Heimdal Free: I prefer Secunia PSI, as Secunia scans everything - Heimdal doesn't.5. SpywareBlaster Free: Yes.Hope this helps Regards,Alex

A:How can I do a factory reset

You can create a Restore Disc to restore your computer to factory defaults.


Complete the following steps to create the recovery disc set:
Click Start , click All Programs , click PC Help & Tools , and then click Recovery Disc Creation .
Click Next when the Welcome screen displays.
A window opens listing the number of blank discs required to make a complete recovery set.
Get the correct type and number of blank discs before continuing.
Click Next and follow the on-screen instructions to create the recovery discs.

For detailed instructions and graphics, see the following support document:

So I've purchased a new laptop that has never performed well. HP wants to do a remote wipe & factory reset. I need to save all my files, bookmarks, settings, etc. before we do this. Feel free to talk to me like I don't know what I'm doing, because essentially I don't. How do I back up everything necessary before we wipe this computer clean?
I have an external hard drive available for all the files, pictures, music... but I've never had to back up settings/bookmarks/etc.
If I'm asking a rather involved question or if there's a tutorial or previous post on this topic that I missed, please let me know.
And thank you in advance.

A:To-do before factory reset???

Welcome to Windows Eight Forums, HighCountry.

You have the right idea to back up all important files.

Do you sign into your computer with a MS account? If so, all settings, apps, and Start Screen arrangement will be saved and should be restored upon boot.

So far as Firefox, you may want to post that question here: Firefox

I just reset my Windows 7 Acer Aspire 5742Z laptop to factory reset which I have never tried before.  Everything seem to go without a hitch, but when I looked to see if the Product Key was entered, as I was never ask about it during the factory reset.  I noticed the product key that was installed was not the same as the product key printed on the bottom of the laptop.  Could you please tell me if this is okay, that it will work alright?  I tried to get information on YouTube (I?m a complete novice with computers) and I notice there was a lot of videos on how the change the product key, will I have to change the product key that was installed to the one stamped on the bottom of my laptop.  And advice would be really appreciated.

Hello Everyone:I recently bought a laptop and decided to get my friend to set it up because I was to busy to do it my self. When I got it back I found that he had installed Windows 7 instead and partitioned the hard drive. I did the free upgrade to Windows 10 but now I am wondering if there is anyway to do reset it to factory defaults (with all the preloaded software and such)

A:Factory Reset

Since you did the free upgrade to Win 10 the computer would have been registed with Microsoft, hence just download the OS from Microsoft and the it should activate automatically.Alternatly:Since the computer is loaded with Win 7 which was not shipped with the computer, you need to get a Recovery Disc from HP and run Recovery.:

Well, the system did come with a Recovery option, but since the Windows 10 up grade it probably will not longer function with the F11 key.  The one option is to do a Windows 10 reset or a clean reinstall using the Windows 10 Download tool

you can do factory reset of the laptop, by disconnecting CMOS battery(while laptop turned off and if main battery and charger disconnected too) and reconnecting it again. if you wish to remove password you can try this procedure, but in 99% cases it won't help.

I'm hoping for a solution to what has slowly turned into a nightmare laptop originally came with Windows upgraded to Win online using an outlook com account as log in verification After a week holiday I inadvertently entered the wrong outlook com password too many times and consequently was locked out of Windows After attempting all recovery options without success I was advised by Microsoft the only option is a factory reset Having copies of all files from my hard drive I Googled how to reset Toshiba to factory settings which looked simple enough holding down Zero while turning on - wait for the beep and follow the instructions unfortunately after the beep Windows continues to load It would appear the factory reset data has been overwritten or is not applicable for Win Further Googling and the best suggestion I can find is to buy the reset media from Toshiba unfortunately it Factory Reset Win 10 seems they only supply that media up to Windows I am at a loss what my next steps should be it would seem only option is to buy a copy of Win but before I go down that road thought I'd ask if anyone can help Thanks in Win 10 Factory Reset advance Tony

HP has informed me I need to do a factory reset of my HP Pavilion LK8JHHPQ laptop. I've never done one before. Could someone provide the instructions for such an operation? If I'm not mistaken all the applications and programs that came with the system will be restored, is that right? I would only have to install any programs I've loaded myself, such as Word. I should save all the files I need before running the factory reset,  is that right? Thanks

Hello, I have an older custom built PC from my father and it's starting to get a little buggy as of late, freezing and such, and honestly the hard drives are getting too full, I feel it'd be better to just wipe the thing clean and start over.
The downside is I have no CD with which to reset it, and I want to make sure I'm doing it completely right, IE I don't want to delete my OS with it or completely break my PC. Any info you need for this I can provide willingly, thank you!

It "may" be that the recovery partition doesn't exsist anymore...? How did you instal win-7?There are a couple of useful links re' the reset routine at this site (another forum to give it credit). The first link is for the manual.. 74 in the manual describes the various options.Be "very aware" that a factory reset will erase "all" your personal files in the process. So first ensure you have copied anything you wouldn't wish to lose to external storage beforehand. Typically to DVD but an external hard drive too is nice(r). Verify the copies are accessible too on at least one other system (if possible) as well as the current one.What OS was there originally?

A "edit boot options" option appears instead, and then a commant prompt. Am I pressing the wrong function key? How can I successfully restore to factory settings? Thanks in advance

A:Factory Reset Help

This is from the support site for your laptop:

Your Advent computer uses the latest recovery system that doesn't require any CDs or DVDs to restore your PC to it's original factory condition.

There are two ways to start the recovery:

Restart your computer. Then Press F10 repeatedly until the message "Starting System Recovery" is displayed.

In Windows by clicking: Start / All Programs / System Recovery / System Recovery.

The recovery will load and display a box with one option:

Non-destructive recovery: this option will restore Windows, supplied applications, and drivers. This option will not destroy your documents or programs. These will be backed up along with the registry. These are restored at the end of the recovery process.

To access the recovery options below that erase all data from the computer, click the Advanced button.

System Recovery - No format: this will reinstall Windows, supplied applications and drivers. It will move your files to a folder called "My old disk structure". Any applications (except those supplied) will need to be reinstalled.

System Recovery - Quick format: this option will erase your hard drive including your personal files. Windows, supplied applications and drivers will be reinstalled.

Select the Non-destructive recovery option and press Next.

You will be informed about System Restore in Windows, click Yes.

The recovery will begin. Once this is complete click Restart.
