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.

I have a 2002 Dell, with windows xp and i want to completly restore it but i have no Cd to restore it, does any1 know if i can just manually restore to the day i bought it?


You can look for a D:\drive. that has the factory disks located there. After restore, you should create system restore disks..Manufacturers stopped shipping restore disks, putting that task on the new owners.

I have a Dell Inspiron Zino HD. Got a bunch of popup so i did the restore disk to get rid of, believing that the computer would be just like it was when we bought the computer. Now the D drive is...


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.

Need help on getting a reboot disk?


If you mean a restore disk, you will have to contact the manufacturer and purchase the restore disk. restore disk will restore your computer back to factory settings (brand new out of the box) I do not know what a reboot disk is. I 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...

Need a reboot disk


Does it have a Microsoft sticker on the case giving you a serial number and product type: 2000, XP Home , XP Pro etc

If it has one then you need to find a buddy with a copy of that software and hope that it is compatible with the version you have on your system.

If not then it is off to the shop for a fresh copy

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..

Dell 2400 dimension


One thing to try is this:

When the pc starts to boot up from the disk, and you get to the point where it asks which partition to install Windows, go ahead and delete all partitions (unless one has the restore image, or you just want to keep a separate partition), or just the main big one. Now follow the instructions to create a partition, and make it as big as desired, again depending on weather you want two, or just one large one. Now tell the pc to install Windows on the newly created partition and see what happens.
I am trying to help, so please don't rate me, UNLESS I fixed it. Thanks!

Recovery disk for dell computer 8110


Hello,

The model is probably B110 and you can start the factory restore by restarting the computer and repeatedly pressing CTRL- F11 until you see the factory restore program start. Then follow the on-screen prompts to do a factory restore.

Hope this helps. Please remember to rate this information.

Thanks
