Oh i thought you meant if you reformatted. Well the only way to return in back to factory settings without recovery discs or partition is to do a system restore. start menu - all programs - accessories - system tools - system restore. I don't know if there's a hotkey associated with it, but sys restore is the only way to do it without discs. Just hope you have it enabled, and that you have a restore point that has the original factory settings.

1. Yes.

2. Do you have a backup partition containing the operating system on your hard drive? Why didn't you make a backup data disk?

Which one? Try to wait until around August or September to get one. Apple usually has those back to school specials where they include an iPod with a computer purchase.

Yeah, I might just do that. I'm getting it right after there's a Apple Keynote, whenever that is. Since usually that's when they announce new products and such.

I'm looking into getting the 2.0GHz Aluminum MacBook. I was thinking of buying the Pro, but I don't do any video or or much image (Photoshop) editing. So, I should be fine with the MacBook, right?

I thought you were talking about after formatting, also.

Do you have a Dell? If so, right after you see the two prompts for F2 and F12 at the bottom of the screen during startup, hit CTRL + F11, then let up. It should take you to the restore system.

That's what I have right now and I am loving it. I usually have Safari, iChat, iTunes, and Photoshop on at the same time and it runs great, no lag whatsoever.

I'm sold! :lol:

Just waiting for a Summer keynote, and I'll be buying the damn thing. Can't wait. I've had this Gateway PC since later 2003, so I'm really happy about finally upgrading to something 10x better.

so i've been using 64-bit windows vista ultimate edition service pack 1 on one of my partitions for maybe 3 months now...mostly because i wanted my computer to actually use the 4 gigs of ram that were in it, and i figured i'd give the beta version of 7 another release or two (still running xp on another partition though) anyway i don't see why everyone thought it was so terrible. other than having to buy a new PCI wireless card, (thats d-links fault though, they refuse to offer vista drivers at all, let alone 64 bit) i haven't really had any problems. it scares me to say it, but i kinda like it...certainly wouldn't have paid 320 bucks for it, but again, for some reason, i kinda like it

Not sure if this should go here, but...

I'm printing my PowerPoint slides - 6 to a page. And I need to number the pages. I have 12 slides, so I'll get 2 pages printed. Now this comes in the middle of my senior career portfolio, and it'll be be page 16-17. I don't know how to set the page numbers to where it needs to start. :(

Hope someone here knows :( I need to get all this done by tonight.

You can always just manually put in whatever page number you want by double-clicking the bottom left, center, or right of the bottom margin.
