Question about Dell Dimension 3000 PC Desktop
When i purchased Dimension 3000 it didn't come with a cd of Windows Xp Home Edition, rather it was only installed in it. Some friend of mine told me that the windows cd is copied into the hard disk of your pc. The problem i m getting is that i have a lot of spywares and my computer is running slow. I want to reinstall Windows. But how do i access the Windows cd that is imprinted on my hard disk. Would really appreciate your help, Ahmad Khan.
When you see the Dell screen on startup hold CTRL and tap F11. This will bring you into the Dell specific restore utility.

Contact dell if it was purchased before they had to give you the install cd, it is a purple disc that says win xp w/sp2 for reinstallation

There area couple of solutions to fix this problem 1. search your hard disk for A) drv or drivers folder in which you will be having I386 folder and run setup.exe file to reinstall the os. B) Remove all the spyware from the add/remove programmes in Control Panel. Then os will work fastly. C) Use the System Restore application to the early date so that all the useless programmes will wash away. D) Search your hard disk for an image file whcih contains the windows os

I tried the CTRL-F11 and it didn't work on the splash screen when the computer reboots. I had to wait until I got to the second screen that was blank, except for www.dell.com listed at the top.
