I'm certain that this has been answered before but I am aware that for certain computers it can be quite different.
My question is how do I restore my computer to factory settings? I have a Gigabyte GA-Z77-D3H, I've looked all over the manual and still can not figure out exactly how. I always try to access my BIOS but there seems to be no recovery management on it. I have my Win7 reinstallation disc and Gigabyte Drivers installation disc if that helps.
I'll reinstall windows if I have to, but only if it'll reset everything. I have a 60GB Boot Drive and a 1TB hard drive.
If anybody could shed some light on the subject I would greatly appreciate it.
Not all computers have a "restore factory settings" option. you can certainly format your hardrive and re-install windows. it will definetly "reset" everything to brand new, just keep in mind you will have to re-install your programs and drivers as well.
Well, here's my problem then: I have two drives, a 1TB Hard Drive (Disk 0) and a 60GB SSD (Disk 1, I'm assuming). This is a pre-built computer from iBuyPower. They put the OS on the 1tb HHD and from what I can tell, there's nothing on the SSD. I have two partitions on Disk 0, (C: ) and 'System Reserved.'
I really would just like to completely get rid of everything on my computer and start from scratch. And I'm assuming if I format my (C: ) drive my Win7 will be erased and I will have one effed up computer on my hands.
The only thing I can think to fix all of this is if I perform a clean install of Windows. Would this really help or would it screw me up even more? Do I format my (C: ) drive and THEN clean install windows? Believe me, I'm not that computer savy when it comes to hard drives and partitions and things of that nature.
