Keeps Defaulting To Factory Setting

Feb 6, 2016

I got a new laptop (Pavilion 17) and first time using windows 10.

Problem 1 - I originally had to turn on scrolling for the click pad which was yesterday. Now today scrolling was turned off and I had to turn it back on again. Stopped using computer last night while it was copying files over (via network). Computer was left open and running.

Problem 2 - This morning the network was completely disconnected and I had to go in and 'join the network' again. I did have to 2 this 3 times yesterday while I was using the computer as well.

Problem 3 - This morning all my windows had been closed? Explorer windows that were being used to copy and firefox also.

Windows Factory Setting Failed - Computer At 2% Turned Off

Sep 7, 2015

I had a lot of files so I decided to reset to factory settings. Computer at 2% turned off, so I tryed to turn it on again,but windows refused to start, it turned off after the manufacturer's logo showed, so I decided to download windows 10 installer [URL] ..... and put it into my USB. I tryed to reinstall windows through usb port, but it needs to turn on the windows that can not be launched (possibly due to incomplete reset to factory settings that might have deleted important windows files). How can I re-install windows 10 without needing to access windows?

Customization :: Folder Pictures Set Randomly Defaulting

Feb 10, 2016

Basically I've been doing some serious customisation to my media folders.. I've arranged everything where I want them from movies to TV and animated TV. I've even go as far as to put artwork on all folders.. For example in my marvel folder I've got an Marvel Cinamatic universe logo set and inside all the films have the did covers set.

I've been adding this artwork by right clicking the folders the films are inside. Going to customisation tab and selecting older pictures, which I then set a picture I've saved of the film cover..

My issue is that 2 times now I've gone through setting all this up to look nice and randomly when I restart the computer most of the artwork disappears from the folder and it goes back to the Windows default folder picture with just the media logo inside it..

Why this keeps happening and how I would stop it from forgetting the picture I've set up? It's really annoying having to set it all back up again and again for each individual folder and so time consuming!!

Performance :: How To Set Factory Resetting PC

Nov 28, 2015

Alright so i've had this laptop for a few years and have had adjustments to it. I bought it windows 8 and have constantly been updating it - to 8.1 and 10. I feel like I need to just reset it to factory settings. I am wondering if it would reset to windows 10 or back to 8. If it goes back to 8 is it possible for me to get the free upgrade again.

Secondly - Is there a way to partition my harddrive so that i can keep some important files on it that i need to transfer after the factory reset without anything on the partition being cleared.

Installation :: How To Factory Reset

Jan 29, 2016

How to Factory Reset Windows10 or upgraded to Windows10 from Windows7 or 8.This is also a FIX for the ERROR: There was a problem resetting your PC. This fix is only for Legit Authorized Copies of Windows 7, 8, or 10.

I upgraded to Win10 from Win8.1 when it was released for free upgrades in 2015. It is now 2016 and I wanted to Factory Reset my PC so I can start fresh again. I attempted to do it from Settings/Update and Security/Recovery/Reset this PC as suggested by Microsoft but I received and error saying "There was a problem resetting your PC. No changes were made." After searching the web I found many different fixes but they all seems so involved. Making a boot flash drive or burning a DVD and use their software... There is an awesome tutorial on this forum called Windows 10 Clean Install but I like to KISS when I can (Keep It Simple Stupid) so I decided to check with before I started that process.

Go to: Windows 10
Click the "Upgrade Now" button.
Follow the prompts and you're good to go.
Works with Windows 7, 8 and 10.

Factory Reset Stuck On 2%

Nov 4, 2015

I was doing a factory reset on my Windows 10 computer, but it got stuck on 2%. After less than an hour from the beginning it got stuck, and it didn't move all night, although I selected the shorter method (deleting only personal stuff). I manually shut down my PC and I selected the second method. It said it could take few hours. But after half an hour it was still on 1 %. I have just one hdd disk. What could be the problem causing this? I am worried that when I will come back from work, it will still be on 1%.

Is it possible to still revert a PC to the original factory condition using the factory restore partition after Windows 10 has been installed or does the installation of WIN 10 prevent that? None of the other options to do a restore back to the original WIN 7 (as purchased new) are available to me.

Installation :: How To Factory Reset Without Losing

Dec 8, 2015

I have factory reset once before with windows 10 and it let me keep windows 10 when I did it. But now I want to do it again but it is showing me a notice that if i reset, I will go back to windows 7. Is there a way I can factory reset my pc while still keeping windows 10?

Also I have another question but I don't want to make another thread about it. In games such as cs go, why is my game freezing for no reason? About every 30 sec - 1 min, i freeze for about 5-10 seconds. Between the freezes, i get split second freezes. I am getting a constant 200 fps and 10 ping

Factory Reset Doesn't Work

Aug 5, 2015

I want to factory reset my Asus UX301LA laptop running Windows 10 (came with 8.1), but Windows demands recovery media. The install disk wasn't included when I bought the laptop. I tried creating recovery media using the build-in program, but it says that some needed files are missing and that I should use the install disk. Is there any other way I can factory reset.

Installation :: How To Create Factory Image Disk

Feb 10, 2016

First of all, I upgraded to windows 10 from windows 7. My device is a ASUS K55vd notebook. When I was running on windows 7 I successfully created a factory image disk via ASUS ai recovery application (a five bootable disk). Then I decided to upgrade my hdd to ssd. My idea is to have a clean factory installation of windows 7 on ssd so I didn't clone my old hdd.

What I did was mount the ssd and ran my recovery disk and successfully installed a fresh windows 7, it is then when I update my windows 7 and went to windows 10. Currently I'm running on windows 10 and there is the notification of creating a factory disk which I would like to do but as soon as I start burning the disk it says that the recovery partition does not exist even though I have my recovery drive ( R: ).

Next, I tried creating system repair disc from Control Panel>System and security>Backup and restore (windows 7) then this prompt came. "The selected disc cannot be used. The selected disc does not contain a valid Windows installation."

Lastly I tried creating system image also from Control Panel too. However it failed and says that the mounted backup volume is inaccessible.

In my reagentc /info:

In my disk management:

I would like to ask for some solution regarding that and I'm wondering if the previous factory image disc that I have from before (win 7) is still usable if I decided to factory reset my pc? And can I make a bootable disc in which it reverts my windows to the point where I freshly upgraded to windows 10 so that I would relieve myself the hassle of upgrading again to windows 10 when the factory image disc work (in which it will surely reverts my windows to win 7).

Installation :: Failed Factory Reset - Won't Boot Up

Feb 10, 2016

Recently, I decided to do a factory reset, to cleanly wipe my drive, with the exception of Windows. When the reset was about 30% through, the reset failed. Now, when I try and use my laptop, it only gets to the ASUS logo, then goes to a black screen with a flashing underscore symbol on the top left corner. I've tried doing F9, SHIFT+F9, and everything else in between. My laptop is an ASUS G74SX, and I don't have a recovery partition for the laptop. I also cannot get any external programs for the laptop, such as ISOs, etc.
