My nabi dreamtab wont reset why?

There are two types of resets that you can perform on nabi - forced reboot and factory reset. In the unlikely event that your nabi becomes unresponsive, you can easily perform a forced reboot. A factory reset is recommended when slow performance persists or if you want to wipe out all of your personal data and settings from nabi. Forced Reboot: To perform a forced reboot, hold the Power Button down until nabi turns off. When nabi is off, press the Power Button to turn on nabi again. Factory Reset: Caution! A factory reset is a very serious process because it will SYSTEMATICALLY WIPE ALL USER DATA from nabi. A factory reset will return nabi to its original factory settings.To perform a factory reset from Mommy/Daddy Mode, tap All Apps > Settings > Backup & reset > Factory data reset > Reset tablet > Erase everything. Please note: We highly recommend backing up your nabi prior to performing a factory reset. You can back up your music, videos, photos and apps with nabiā„¢ Sync.

My daughters computer is a dell latitude D610 notebook running Windows XP.....when powering up XP starts to load and then goes to a blank blue screen....Is there a restore disc or something i can download...

Hi. I provided you a link where to download the restore disk. Once you have downloaded the restore disk, here's the instruction on how to use the disk.


  • Backup all the data you want to keep on an external hard drive, flash drive, or rewritable CD. Resetting your Dell to factory defaults will erase all data currently on your computer.

  • 2

    Insert the Recovery CD into your CD-ROM.

  • 3

    Reboot your computer.

  • 4

    Watch the text in DOS carefully. When prompted to boot from your CD, do so.

  • 5

    Choose System Restore and then follow the instructions presented. Once system recovery beings, it may take a few minutes. Once it's done, your system will reboot again.

  • 6

    Remove the Recovery CD from your CD-ROM and store it carefully. Your system has been reset to the factory default.

    How to reboot ur acer laptop likr the 1st time you had it :) because it keeps on freezing it wont let me on msn its mega slow .

    if you dont mind losing all the data, you can erase the HDD sectors by using killdisk(dos based)
    this will make the HD as good as new and you can re-install OS again and it will become as good as new.

    I have pcchips m955g motherboard, comp reboots during

    If the computer keeps rebooting when you first start it up it is quite possible that the hard drive is broken. It keeps looking for the start up boot sector, but it's broken so it keeps trying again..and again...and well you know.

    I installed a game onto my pc and now my pc runs very slow i uninstalled the game and still my computer is slow any ideas on how to make my comp faster?

    Try a system restore to a previous date when the computer was working fast. Please backup all your current DATA before you do so as you may lose them.

    Good Luck!

    How to reboot dell E173FP??

    I assume you mean like a factory reset? Most Dells have a recovery partition, press the appropriate key when starting your computer (when the text goes across the black screen), it's usually F12. This should take you into 'recovery mode'. Then follow the prompts.
