When the computer is booting up, press F11 and Ctrl over and over. That takes you to a screen that can guide you from there You cant restore every computer. It has to have recovery partition. And F11 and CTRL only works for Dell (I could be wrong, that's from memory) whereas Acer is CTRL/ALT F10 …(again that's from memory). Different maker's use different key combinations, you will have to do a bit of googling. And again, this will only work *if* you have a recovery partition. (MORE)

On my Ipod... which is a mini (they don't even make them anymore), I just had to toggle the on and off slider a whole bunch. It worked, I just am not sure exactly how many times I had to do it.
Put the Restore disk in the CD drive. Boot from the Restore disk. Then follow the on-screen instructions.
sometimes they have a hidden partition which saves an image of all your original settings. while booting up, hold ALT + F10. this should bring up the system restore option
Okay, you may or may not be able to do this. Let me give some details. Many computer manufacturers, rather than including a windows or restore cd, will instead put a special partition on the hard disk that includes all the data needed to restore the system to factory default settings. This is not… always the case, however, and so you may just be screwed. Consult your manual (if you have one) or the manufacturers website on wether or not your system has a "system restore partition" or somesuch & if so, how to activate it. The system restore process varies from maker to maker (and model to model) so it is impossible for us to know exactly what you can do & how to do it without more info. If you need more help, i suggest starting a new question along the lines of "How can i restore my [insert make and model of computer] to factory settings, and can this be done without a cd?" (MORE)

If you backed up your hard drive and reformatted your computer will the back up restore your OS settings and evertying such as background or resolution or will it all be back to factory settings?
Unfortunately, 'backed up' is far too vague to give a straight answer, but the likely answer is "no" and you should, generally, be very wary about attempting to copy a previous OS installation over the top of a later installation. If you actuall mean 'I made an image of my disk, then wiped it and… now I am putting the image back on' then everything will be exactly as it was when you made the image, it's more likely that you simply selected certain files and directories and compressed them on another drive (or media), however. In this case the OS files were probably deliberately excluded (or even impossible to include, for access reasons). (MORE)
