I want to take my dimention 3000 back to factory settings?


Hello,
First, if the computer has the restore partition, you should see a blue bar at the top of the screen immediately following completion of POST. After two seconds you should see a message about loading the descriptor for PBR2. If you don't see these things after you start or restart the computer, the restore function is not operational. If you do see them you need to restart the computer, press CTRL and F11 toward the end of POST, and release both keys simultaneously before you see the message about the descriptor for PBR2. If you are successful you will get a screen that has an option to restore the computer to factory configuration.
If you don't see the blue bar, try using Disk Management to see how many partitions you can find. If the partition exists, you should find three. First, a utility partition formatted in FAT-16 about 32 MB in size. Second should be the NTFS partition used for the C drive; this one will be the largest partition on the drive. Third should be a FAT-32 partition of two to three Gigabytes in size. This last is the restore partition. If you wish you can try to fix it, but you will need to study Dan Goodell's page found here: Inside the Dell PC Restore Partition.
If you don't have the restore partition and can't fix it, the only thing you can do is find the CDs that should have been shipped with the computer and restore the system manually. If you don't have the Dell Windows Reinstallation CD, you can ask for one here: Dell Replacement Disks. If you don't live in the U.S. you will need to contact Dell Tech Support for your region and request the CDs.
Hope this helps!

Unit is very slow. All programs affected. Restore to earlier time made no change. What options do I have? Did disk cleanup and unit does not need defragging. Problem seems to be getting worse. ...


You are still infected, there are several viruses that behave how you describe. The best solution , since you don't know what you're dealing with, is to do a complete reinstall. And next time use a better antivirus.

Where do i get drivers for t3256 e-machine, drivers to completely r e-install Tower PC


Hello sage_morales,

A backup restore cd should have been created when the computer was first installed. But if you don't have the restore cd then this link on the emachines support site may have helpful information:

If this solution is helpful please click a thumbs-up rating.

Have a great day,

I lost my recovery dics to my dell computer can i remake a set


Order them here:
https://support.dell.com/support/topics/global.aspx/support/dellcare/en/backupcd_form

or you probably have a Recovery Partition if you press CTRL + F11 upon startup which will perform a restore back to the Out of Box state.

This will wipe all your data so make sure you have the data off the drive before restore with the CD or with the recovery partition

put the first CD in the Tray, then shut down the computer. Next boot up, and press F9 or whichever option is system recovery. Now select recover form CD. This should work, otherwise it will automatically, start the recovery on boot up.
