If I press Ctrl-Alt delete I can get teh task manager and pull up gateway recovery management but when I hit completely restore system to factory defaults it says Hard drive configuration i snot set to teh factory default. Restore aborted. WHAT DO I DO, I WANT to restore everything to factory settings. Please help!

Hello,

Try this 1

You can try the below instruction instead of restoring to factory default settings.

Open "Task Manager" --> Click on "File" --> New Task --> Type explorer.exe

and press Enter.

If you have any problem with explorer.exe file then

Open "Task Manager" --> Click on "File" --> New Task --> Click on "Browse"

In the "File Name" area, enter the below location

C:\Windows\System32\dllcache

Press Enter Or Click on "Open" button

Now look for a file explorer --> Right-click on that file --> Copy and now in

"Look in:" select C-drive from the drop-down menu or Click on "My Computer"

--> Open "Windows" folder --> In files\folders area, right-click on white area and

paste it --> Select that pasted "explorer" file --> Click on "Open" button --> Click

on "OK" button.

Good Luck
