If the unit has a license for XP on it, borrow a Win Xp cd from a Friend and install it. Then download the drivers from Dell's website.

your best bet is to burn a recovery disk to a back-up DVD and then do a full format of the drive D. then make sure to download a good anti-spyware program so that you will not have the pop-up problem again.

From you're description it sounds like the hard disk drive is defective. Suggest you replace it with a new drive, choose from the list provided; http://www.google.com/products?hl=en&q=Dell+Inspiron+1520+new+hard+disk+drive&um=1&ie=UTF-8&ei=QertS-P-NYP48AaSy8z9Cg&sa=X&oi=product_result_group&ct=title&resnum=1&ved=0CDEQrQQwAA
There is another option. Restore a DELL Inspiron 1525 laptop to factory settings.
You have to do it BEFORE Windows loads...
1. Reboot, and press Ctrl + F11 at the Dell logo.
2. The Dell PC Restore by Symantec screen will come up.
3. Select "Restore" or use the Tab key to highlight it and press Enter.
4. if you wish to continue, click "Confirm", or use the Tab key to highlight it and press Enter.
5. When the utility is finished, click "Finish", or use the Tab key to highlight it and press Enter.
***This will erase all your unsaved data!***
Use you're recover CD to reinstall Windows.

Good luck!

Hey i have a dell xps m140and i will like to reboot my compture to factory setting can anyone help


If you have the recovery disk is as easy as putting the disk into the drive and reboot. However, if you don't have one, and you have not deleted your recovery partition you may create a recovery disk form there, or may even be able to tell the computer to restore itself there for you. If you have none of the above you may try contacting dell about a recovery disc.

If the cmos is password protected, then you must reset the cmos. The best way to remove any signs previous owners is to reformat or do a system restore. You ca do this with the disks that came with the computer, you should put the system restore disk in and be on your way. Just follow the on screen instructions and you should be all set.

Hope this helps

Trying to do a factory restall of Dell demnension 2400


typically you don't need to press ctrl at all -- usually f11 does the trick -- or going into accessories and system tools and looking for factory restore or something similar, the program has different names depending on the manufacturer. System Restore will only bring it back to a previous date...

If you received the CD's that the original owner received with the machine, re-install Windows and all of the drivers. After that install anti-virus software and go from there. If the CD's did not come with your purchase there's not much you can do to restore without software disks.

How do you format the hard drive on Dell Inspiron 1000. I have the restore system disk and don't have anything on it worried about losing...just need to format and start fresh..it's got too many issues and...


I'd put ubuntu on it, if it's a inspiron 1000, should run ok. If you have the restore disks from dell, just turn it on, pop in the cd, then reboot, the pc should boot from cd, then just follow the promps, make sure you delete all partitions, format thorough (not quick NTFS), use the whole disk for windows

Dell 4600 without operating system disc. How to reboot computer


You need not buy any WINDOWS DISK, if u can borrow the WINDOWS XP DISK from your frenn or relative just for an hour then we can go ahead and help u with the FRESH WINDOWS RE-INSTALLATION and all the spyware infection would be cleaned up .. As far as WINDOWS GENUINE SOFTWARE LICENSE is concerned just look at the back of your DELL PC, there would be 2 WHITE BAR CODED STICKERS one of them will have the WINDOWS XP PRODUCT KEY which we can use and you NEED NOT WASTE your hard earned earned $100 for that disk which u can borrow i believe..


temme as soon as u get the disk......

One more thing that DELL cant charge u for the disk, because when u bought the system or in your case when the system was bought the amount was paid for the WINDOWS GENUINE LICENSE and the disk... so in case they don't provide you with the disk and you don't find the product key then call them and get the GENERIC PRODUCT KEY ATLEAST... WELL WHAT I BELIEVE IF U R LIVING IN U.S.A. THEN call them back and asked for the disk again because i've worked in dell and i have send disk to many people free of cost whose disk has been lost or damaged even if the system is out of warranty..

Hi, I think you will need to run the Dell restore disk, install the orriginal drivers and use the dell system to bootup then load the drivers the ASUS drivers then close the system, install the new card and then bootup. on doing this there will be resident drivers for the new card and it should work fine, then delete the orriginal drivers.
