Question about Dell OptiPlex GX110 PC Desktop

Need a destructive restore...?

I have a dell optiplex that uses three symantec norton ghost disks to do a destructive system restore (to factory specs) and this computer is in bad need of a complete restore, but my disks got ruined like 2 years ago. How do I do the restore now? If I need the disks, where can I buy them? Is there not an online download for these disks? H--E--L--P!

If you are going to restore with the disks, all the OS updates and programs you have installed will be discarded and you will end up with a disk full of junk.
Also, I had one of those dells a few months ago. If you just want to do a clean install, backup your data and re-install the OS (windows, I guess), but before you do that, go to Dell's site, and download the drivers for your OS. I believe there isn't anything absolutely necessary you can not get there.

Do a disk defrag on the source drive. If that doesn't work, you may have a virus on your source drive and norton ghost is catching before getting on your destination drive.

How to restore the computer using the norton ghost


Use your Norton Ghost boot disk to boot your computer.
Once it's booted it will ask you what you want to do.
Choose to Restore your harddrive and point to where the image is residing on your backup.

It's all pretty self explanatory. It may take several hours, so be patient.

Reformatted computer, found files with GHS & GHO,how to recover?


Hi 'jen2x':

I’m Melinda and I represent Symantec’s PR Department.

Norton Ghost has the following key features:

  • Full system backup (disk image)—Backs up everything on a hard drive or partition.
  • File and folder backup—Backs up only the specific files and folders you choose rather than saving an entire drive.
  • FTP backup—Copies recovery points to a FTP site for easier offsite backup management. NEW
  • Offsite backup—backs up your files to NAS (Network-Attached Storage) devices. NEW
  • Symantec ThreatCon integration—triggers incremental backups whenever ThreatCon reaches a specified threat level. Great for computers without virus protection. NEW
  • Incremental and differential backup—Backs up only files that have changed.
  • EXCLUSIVE! Google Desktop™ integration—Makes data recovery even faster with searchable backup indexes.
  • LightsOut Restore—Restores your system with an on-disk software recovery environment—no bootable CD required.
  • EXCLUSIVE! Remote management—Controls other Norton Ghost installations (12.0 or higher) on your local area network.
  • Advanced compression and encryption—Minimizes storage space and helps keep sensitive documents safe.

I want to restore my dell laptop to factory settings


You need the system disks from the manufacturer, Dell to restore the computer to factory defaults. The system disks come in two forms, windows disks, and computer specific system disks. I am unsure of the disks that come with your notebook, but most likely they are system specific.
To restore the system, put the disk in the drive, restart the computer and after the POST (power on self test) push the F12 button. This will bring up the one-time boot screen allowing you to boot off of the CD. The next step is to format the computer and windows should begin to reinstall.
As for anti-virus, I use Antivira Anti-Virus Personal. It's free and can be downloaded from the link below.

Best of luck.
