    Hello, i'm experiencing alot of problems with my pc since my kids have used it. I would like to restore it back to it's original settings but do not have a restore disk. I can no longer play WOW because it can't find a suitable display device. Any help would be appreciated.

    This should help you.

    Restore from recovery partition:

    Switch your PC off and reboot

    Tap F8 until your boot screen is infront of you and select "Repair Your Computer" You should now have your "System Recovery Console" on screen

    Select "Windows Complete PC Restore" and follow the instructions,

    If that doesn't work, there may be a program loaded on the operating system which will allow you to create a System Recovery disk.

    Also, you may need to press another key to activate the Recovery Partition (if present). It sometimes varies from computer to computer, but bicycle bill's instructions cover the most common way.

    Let us know what happens when you try to access the recovery partition using F8.
