Preferred Solution: Power down during 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 http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I had a virus or a bug on my comuter so I thought I would just factory reset it and would just get all my suff back over time because I won't lose much. But while it was reintalling windows 10, my power went out and when i turned it back on it would go throuh the booting process with ACER on the screen the just black for two days strait. Then I tried to Google a way to fix it and it told me to hit Shift and F10 to get to a menu and change a setting from 1 to 3. (Sorry, I actually don't remember what thing I changed.) Now I can't find what web site I went to and when I turn my computer on it boots up through the two ACER screens then a screen that says 64% donlowded pops up for a second or two then it restarts and it dose it all again.Thats the story behind it, and I was woundering if a new copy of windows would work or is my hard drive to messed up and I need a new one, or any other advise anyone has would be helpfull. Thank you for your time,AJ

So basically my computer has ceased to function on the latest windows 10 update, 100% disk usage is occurring at all times leaving the computer inoperable and I've found that reverting it to factory settings and not updating fixes that. Well the other night I clicked on update and shut down accidentally rather than sleep. I immediately went to factory reset it again and it finished and put me at the setup screen, at that point my power went out. Upon turning the computer back on it came up with the screen That shows the windows logo and has a loading circle, let this "load" for about 2 hours before shutting the damn thing off and rebooting. It takes me back to the same screen where I proceed to give it 8 hours, finally it takes me to a screen that says administrator and has another loading circle, I have now been on this screen for an additional 8 hours. I have no Idea what to do at this point, I have tried to reinstall windows from a DVD and from a USB but for some reason it tells me to insert actual boot media, I have tried multiple different win 7 and 10 isos on dvds and usbs and none will work. Any help would be greatly appreciated as I fear this os is slowly taking my sanity. Thanks.

I haven't used a d-link in a long time and I'm just wondering if I can power cycle a DI-264 without resetting the router to factory default settings. I just pull the power plug for 30 seconds correct?
 

A:D-link DI-264 Power Cycle without Factory Reset?

Yes, pulling the plug on any router should not erase any of its settings. You would have to use the reset switch to clear the settings or the option within the router menus to restore it to factory defaults.

I reset my computer to factory defaults on my computer, because it was acting buggy, and I was afraid something horrible was going on.

I'm not a computer genius, heck.. I can't even say I'm close to it.

But I knew that the reset would help me get my computer back to the way I had it when I got it in February, and I can start from there once more.

Now.. with that being said.
Every time I log on now to the computer, it acts as if I'm hitting F10 still, and giving me three options.. The Factory Reset, the Total Reset (which is meant to be used when installing a new verision of Windows), and then "Q" which makes me exit.

After the reset, everything seemed to straighten itself out, which is the bonus for me. I know now that if I do something horrible to this computer, it'll fix itself. Other than for that.. I'm at a loss.

Now the question is, what do I do to get rid of this screen?
I'm running on Windows XP SP2.
Much help would be appreciated.

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.

Product came with Windows 8.1 (not sure if 32 or 64 bit).  Am attempting recovery for a friend who is not technically capable.  Using HP Factory Recovery to do a full factory reset using the 5 DVD set created upon initial setup of the machine.  Have since upgraded to Windows 10, but that upgrade can be done again upon a full reset.  Am at the Factory Image Recovery Preparation page and have the Reformatting and Copying Files lines checked.  Progress goes to 12% with 18 minutes remaining and process freezes (multiple attempts and always freezes at 12%). After quite a long wait, an error message appears stating that the Destination Drive is not Connected.  Attempted to use an extrenal DVD drive as suggested in a tech forum, but this did not work as the system failed to read from the external drive. Is there a solution to this problem that does not require the disassembly of the machine to take the hard drive external as suggested in another tech forum?  Or is there a clean DVD image set that HP can provide that will not cause this problem.

Hi, The machine originally shipped with Windows 8.1 64bit ( Home ). If you wish to order a replacement set of Recovery Media for Windows 8.1, you can do so starting on the link below. http://support.hp.com/us-en/mediaorder/hp-15-g000-notebook-pc-series/6545564/model/6761879/softwareitem/819421-001/step1 An alternative option, if you're intending to upgrade the notebook to Windows 10 again, would just be to perform a clean installation of 10 - as the machine has been previously upgraded to 10, a hardware profile ( Digital Entitlement ) will have been recorded by the activation servers. As long as the previous installation of Windows 10 had activated Ok after the upgrade from 8.1, you can just create your own installation media and perform a clean installation as detailed in the guide on the following link.  Note: At the activation screen, select 'I don't have a Product key' - Windows will activate automatically once the installation has completed. http://www.howtogeek.com/224342/how-to-clean-install-windows-10/ Regards, DP-K

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.

Dell said they can do the factory reset and no longer provides disks, if I bought a one year warranty for $250.
Is there any way to do this using MS Dos? 
I see my system showing there is a recovery section.
Thanks.
