    Angry New Tablet, new problem - restoring factory settings

    My son received an Asus T100 for Christmas but couldn't wait for me to set it up for him. Needless to say, he didn't remember the password he used to log in. How do I reset the tablet to factory settings from the Windows log in screen?

    Welcome to the forum!

    I'm moving this to the T100 help forum.

    I once did a search to see if there was a way to reset the Windows password (I assume that is what we are talking about and not a BIOS password?) but it seemed pretty difficult to do.

    Unless someone comes up with a better idea you might just do a full system restore. Connect the keyboard dock and turn off the machine by holding the power button several seconds. Then turn it back on and hit the f9 key several times while the T100 reboots. You should be able to get into the system repair screen which takes about 40 seconds to load. I think under "Troubleshoot" you'll see an option to restore the system to it's original condition. But that will remove any stuff you may have previously added.

    Since it's new and probably doesn't have much data in there to lose, I'd recommend just doing a factory restore.

    You can get into bios by pressing Power+VolDown, and to Recovery by pressing Power+VolUp . Your tablet have to be turned off to do that.

    It should just be volume up + power.

    Is the dock broken or lost? Alternative would be connecting a keyboard to the USB port on the tablet (using a micro USB to USB adapter) and then hitting F9 on boot to get to restore.
