What sequence do I go through to reset software with a boot disk on a Dell Optiplex


hello ggpgh1


If you are using the actual windows disk, have it in the CD/DVD drive

1-turn the computer on
2- press F12 as it starts
3- from the boot option that comes up choose internal Cd Rom drive
4- if the hard disk has or has had windows on it you get a message "press any key to boot from CD"
5- press any key, the computer starts to boot from the disk. from then on follow the prompts.

good luck

please leave comment if this has helped.

I want to resore my computer back to manufactured state.Its a dell optiplex gx260 desk top


In that case all you have to do is to boot from the recovery disks that came with the pc when you bought it. From then the process is pretty much automatic.

I cannot start-up a Dell Optiplex GX260 in normal mode


I recently had a problem that sounds similar to this - A virus was causing a fake validation window to pop up when I booted my computer and blocked all other functions. 
Start your computer in Safe Mode and go to Start>Run>type msconfig and hit ok. Go to the Startup tab, make sure you can see everything in the Command column, and uncheck anything that doesn't sound fimilar. Hit ok then restart and see if the validation window pops up again after a normal boot. If it goes away you can prpbably clean away the rest of the virus with a simple virus/adware scan.

Very very very slow performance


That is way off buddy should take no more than 1 hour to install and you should be able to boot up into windows in 30 seconds or less. I suggest you first run a virus checker. You probably have a virus that is why it is taking so long. If their are too many virus;s then wipe all the data off your hard drive and reinstall. That will get rid of the virus. Also run disk cleanup and disk defrag that are in the accessories/system tools. Good luck, let me know if you have any questions.
