Put your Windows cd in and reboot. During the start up hit the f12 key and go to the boot menu. Select boot from cd and you will be able to reinstall windows.

My Dell desktop computer will not boot and it is too old to spend money on repairs. However, I would like to be able to get the files off my hard drive. If I buy a kit and turn the internal hard drive...


Nope. you cannot access your files. even if you use a external hard dive to access the files.

i suggest you install windows 7 in your computer but do not reformat the hard disk . in that way your files will still be saved in your harddrive.
Once you have access to your files i suggest you save them in a flash drive or external hard drive if you have one. then reformat your computer and install a windows xp.

here is a tutorial on how to install windows 7 without reformatting your harddrive.

Goodluck. If you have any success using my solution please give me updates.. Thanks

I wont to reset my campaq lap top


Do you have the original disks that it came with? If so, follow the restore procedure that came with them, but be sure to back up any important files on to a flash drive or something. If you don't have them, you can use a new copy of windows and reformat / reinstall everything. Just be sure to backup your files as you will be deleting everything off of the hard drive.

One touch recovery system


See if there is a D: partition on the laptop. If there is, you can find everything there. A service partition has been included with newer systems. You can access your service partition during the startup process
A set of recovery CDs or DVDs can be created in the Rescue and Recovery predesktop area. A CDRW drive or CDRW/DVDRW drive and writable media are required.
When the system first starts, the following message will be displayed on a blank screen:

To Start the Product Recovery program, press F11
This message will stay on the screen for approximately 2 seconds, and it will be there every time the machine is started from a powered off state. If the F11 key is pressed while the message is displayed, then the system will enter the Service partition.
Good luck.
