Doing a full system recovery on your computer would mean bringing back your system to its default or original settings when it was purchased and set up the first time.  Before doing this you must back up all your import files like pictures, downloaded music, movies, and so on to avoid losing them permanently. Also you must be ready with the installation disc you’ll need to reinstall any additional application, software or program that did not come with the system when you purchased it. Aside from that you must disconnect all additional devices and only leave the monitor, the keyboard, the mouse, and the power cord plugged in to the system. Other devices should be unplugged. Now you mentioned that you will need all original discs that came in with the system, to obtain them, you will need to contact your computer manufacturer so that they could give you the options to choose from to either create your own copy or to purchase them. You cannot just buy those original discs from any stores because you will need to get the one that has the right build number when your system was built and set up.

Even if your machine came with its original discs, doing a complete system recovery on your computer still does not guarantee that it will recover or restore your system back to its default or original state. There are several factors to consider before attempting the recovery. Doing a system recovery or bringing your machine back to its previous state will make other installed applications seem not installed or not present.

If this happens, you may need to re-install the software again. Your system should also have an available restore point to make the system recovery possible. Without it or if your system doesn’t have an available restore point, restoring your computer back to the previous state is not possible. You can check if your system has created a restore point:

  • Click Start, All Programs, Accessories, System Tools, then click on System Restore.
  • Select Restore my computer to an earlier time then click Next.
  • Check on the calendar if there are any available restore points to restore from. But if you don’t see any then restoring the system is not possible.
