Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet
No restore disks,
Windows restore point is missing,
Laptop will not boot fully to windows,
Safe mode does not work,
You do not have a windows disk,
Only use this tip if you are willing to loose all of your data.
Start laptop and tap f10 key (Sony)
or 'alt' and f11 for Dell
and some Dell 'ctrl' and f10 or f11
or 'fn' and f10
or 'fn' and f11
or 'fn' and f12
You get the drift, and there may be others.
This may activate windows restore partition and bring your laptop back to the factory default system.
I did this again, on a laptop today where seversl parts of windows vista had dissappeared after a game was loaded.
f10 and 1 hour later, a new pc....well nearly.
