The procedure to restore from recovery disk will vary according to which computer you have. Usually you insert the recovery disc in CD / DVD drive after selecting boot sequence 1 from CD/DVD in Bios. You then push the power on button. Once windows boots from recovery CD it will continue with building up the new hard drive.

I have forgotten my password to my dell c521 computer, not the system password


As far as I know, there are a lot of tools and utilities that can be downloaded and used to recover, retrieve, reset windows password. However, I've tried a couple of these utilities through the years. The free software can help you, but you have to learn some computer skills and waste a lot time on learning. If you want to save more time, maybe Google third party password recovery tool or Google Window Password Seeker can help you.

I have an Evesham Evolution desktop with Windows XP SP2 product recovery disc. I want to reformat the drives and carry out full "clean" install and reload all software. I insert the recovery...


It sound like you have a recovery disk not an install disk. The recovery disk you have just lets you repair windows only. If you insert the disk after windows starts and it runs you can then try to back up what you want and delete what you don't want, then run a windows repair. Its the only option, My other suggestion is to purchase Windows 7 and do a clean install.

My kids changed my password and now i have no idea how to get in it now


You may crack the password and login your computer again.

Windows Password Recovery is right what you need in your case. The password recovery tool is designed to reset Windows login password once you accidentally forgot it or have no access to your system including Windows 7, Vista, XP etc. By burning a bootable CD, you can enter almost any computer with Windows administrator login password protected within a few seconds. Here are the step by step tutorial, pretty easy, I am sure you can handle it!

Step 1: Download Windows Password Recovery and install it on another computer.
Step 2: Prepare a blank CD/USB and run the software and use it to burn the ISO file to it.
Step 3: Put it into the CD-ROm and restart your locked computer. Change the BIOS setting of your locked computer to make it boot from the CD-ROM or USB drive. Note: start computer and press F2 or Delete to enter BISO setup
Step 4: Boot your locked computer from the created disk and remove your forgotten password. GOOD LUCK!

I am not able to install it.The windows is recognising the LG player.


Hey,

Cd and dvd drives are installed automatically on windows when they are connected properly. if your drive is not installing then your computers windows has problems, I would insist that you use recovery cd's to restore the computer to original state or use the windows installation cd to install windows to the computer again.

Note that the cd / dvd drive may work outside of windows, so you may be able to install windows with the drive even though it doesn't work in windows. check bios if the drive is detected there or not.

heres some info on the bios, how to get there and how to use it.

you may need to change the boot order so that the cd starts before the hard drive.

Can't find DVD drive under My Computer and regedit fix doesn't work for it


you may have to check the registry manually and if this will not work, you may have to reinstall windows.

1. click start > run > regedit > ok.
2. In Registry Editor, expand the following registry path:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class

3. Under Class, click {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}.

4. Delete Upper and Lower Filters. (If only one is availabel, that's fine).

5. Restart system and check your drive again.

NOTE: Make sure to do this correctly or else, system will not load to windows.

If manually deleting upper and lower filters will not work then you may have to backup your files and reinstall windows.
