i have an AA1 and could someone tell me how to reset my whole machine?

I am on fedora, and i'm having extreme problems with my internet, which noone seems to be able to help me with (network icon dissapeared, and when i try to click on network centre on settings, nothing happens...) so, could someone please tell me how i would go about resetting my whole machine?

You could try logging in as a different user. Assuming it's just a profile that is jacked up, you could reset that user's "everything" by removing the entire contents of their home directory (specifically the dot files) if the different user "fix" works.

Thanks, but i dont have any other users on my machine... is there a way to completely reset it though? I'm pretty sure that will get rid of the problem..
