Hmm..ok..then you will need to format the drive, and re install the operating system from the installation disk. Do you have that disk?

How do I unlock a stolen computer?


The school cannot 'block' the computer.If you are asking how to get round a password, so you can use a stolen computer, you are on the wrong site.That is a criminal activity. You would be far better contacting the school and telling them you bought it innocently.
If you bought stolen property you should be trying to get your money back from the seller. Apart from that, are there no police where you live? They are the ones that are interested in people that sell stolen property.

I want to know how can i start my computer over like when i first bought it


Hi
To set you computer back to factory fresh settings you will need to format the hard drive and reinstall the operatins system and the drivers.
You will need to have the CD's that either you made when you got your computer or if your lucky you got the CD's that the factory furnished with the computer at the time you bought it.
1...Format the hard drive:
You do this by double left clicking on "My Computer",then double left click the main drive (normally C drive).
When the window pops open, you will choose "Format"
Keep in mind that once you format your hard drive you will loose all your files,programs,pictures,etc that you installed since the computer was new. So make your back up on a portable hard drive,thumb drive,etc.
2. Once the formatting of the hard drive is complete you will need to reinstall the operating system along with the drivers.
Insert Disk one into the CD/DVD and start reinstalling your operating system
That will bring your computer back to factory new condition as far as operating is concerned.
Please take time to rate me

you may need to reset router to factory settings. look in documents or their website for instructions that apply to your router.
Also, I assume you have everything powered off when switching cables.

DVD+RW DRIVE STOPPED WORKING


Try rebooting your computer. I have a similar desktop and sometimes after a period of use the drive seems to power down - if I shut down and start up again it seems to work again.

If this doesn't solve the problem, check the connections inside the computer to make sure the drive has the data cable and power cable connected securely.

If you bought the Inspiron 3 days ago, contact Dell for warranty service and a replacement. If you just bought the drive itself 3 days ago, take it back or return it to the retailer you bought it from for a replacement.
