Accessing SR on Vista

I don't have a Vista platform with me, its with the kid in college.

What is the recipe to access System Restore in Vista I can post to a user?

I just enter the file name in the Run Command, but I'd rather just issue a run down list.

BTW, did you see the pricing on the i7 Intel Quad Core CPU? Reminds me of the old days when Intel was all about speed. They couldn't have chose a better time to release this to the market.

    Thanks, for the location on Vista. Its just I haven't always seen it there on a Vista system and resort to just entering the file name in the run box.

    Thanks, again.

    I'll be following the i7 reports and watching the prices plummet after Christmas. As if that should make a difference this year.

I moved back to XP a while a go, if you type "restore" into the start menu search box it will come up with system restore within the results. 
I think its also hidden somewhere in the start menu - programs ...

Just did a fast google search on that, here's what I got

  1. Close and save any documents that you may have open. 

  2. Click on the Start button to open your Start Menu. 

  3. When the Start Menu opens click on the All Programs menu option.

  4. Click once on the Accessories Start Menu group.

  5. Click once on the System Tools Start Menu group.

  6. Click once on the System Restore icon. After you click on the icon, if a User Account Control window opens you should click on the Continue button.

I'm not really following the hardware scene much, first time I heard of the new i7, the i7 920 is the only one of the series I might consider buying at its current price, looking at some reviews it seems to out perform all that amd has to offer, I might go intel when I upgrade next time.
Thanks for the update.

Cannot access my computer up date windows vista (TM) BUILD 6000 has caused an error code 0xC004E002 i'm running vista home basic

Try doing a System Restore and choose to restore the system to a date when in was working successfully last, or maybe just before then:
Boot into Safe Mode, then go Start, All Programs, Accessories, System Tools, and then choose System Restore. Once the System Restore is complete, let the system boot normally and see what happens.

Your hard drive is either crashed or corrupted. You might try checking the bios to see if the drive is showing up. If it is, you can try a repair or a reformat. You will need your restore disk(s).

Boot off the disk and follow the instructions.

Moving the laptop while it's accessing the hard drive or improperly shutting down the computer can corrupt the drive. If kids use it as well, it is a good idea to keep your backups do back up, don't you?

Need Vista Home Basic

Usually the operating system is on a separate partition especially for reinstallation when things go pearshape.

Some models used the SHIFT 0 when booting up to get to the windows installation. If you have deleted ALL partitions and reformatted then you have a real problem. Call DELL if you have not deleted partitions and find the specific s]sequence of accessing the partition for your model.
