Question about Dell OptiPlex GX260 PC Desktop
I have had to install a new hard drive and cant find a way to accept the lisensing agreement can you help??
Usually, this issue is caused by pressing F12 multiple times to access the 1 time boot menu. This can cause the keyboard buffer to fill up and the keyboard will not respond. Resolution: Press F12 ONLY one time at boot.
If this is not the issue, then the other main cause is having an INTERNET keyboard that has alternate Function Key functions (These will be listed on the front edge of the Function keys and there will be an extra key called an F-Lock) This type of keyboard has the ALTERNATE function of the F-Keys enabled by default, you need to press the F-Lock key to enable the normal F-Key function.

System restore will not do what your asking.
However there is a way but you will need a Installation cd Assume you have Windows XP
Then you need to borrow or buy a Windows XP Home Edition or Pro
You can buy one used from Ebay.
There are two options !.Repair install this will save all files/data on your hard drive.
Follow these instructions to Repair install.
Boot the computer using the XP CD.
You may need to change the boot order in the system BIOS so the CD boots before the hard drive.
Check your system documentation for steps to access the BIOS and change the boot order.
When you see the "Welcome To Setup" screen, you will see the options below
This portion of the Setup program prepares Microsoft
Windows XP to run on your computer:
To setup Windows XP now, press ENTER.
To repair a Windows XP installation using Recovery Console, press R.
To quit Setup without installing Windows XP, press F3.
Press Enter to start the Windows Setup.
Do not choose "To repair a Windows XP installation using the Recovery Console, press R", (you Do Not want to load Recovery Console).
I repeat, do not choose "To repair a Windows XP installation using the Recovery Console, press R".
Accept the License Agreement and Windows will search for existing Windows installations.
Select the XP installation you want to repair from the list and press R to start the repair.
If Repair is not one of the options, END setup.
After the reboot
Setup will copy the necessary files to the hard drive and reboot.
Do not press any key to boot from CD when the message appears.
Setup will continue as if it were doing a clean install, but your applications and settings will remain intact.
2. If you want to do a clean install that will completely wipe your hard drive clean then follow the instructions from this site http://www.winsupersite.com/showcase/win...
You will then need to reload all Microsoft Windows Updates and find all other drivers and software from http://uk.computers.toshiba-europe.com/c...
Then wham bam you should be back in business.
hope this helps
