Was the date you picked highlighted or was it darkened? also was the system restore turned off ? or was old restore points deleted except most recent restore points? also old restore points can and will be deleted after so long
you would need to make sure of those things first , then let me know what you have going on so I can better tell you what is happening , unless you figure it out

It is my understanding that Xp home does not come with the restore function. I believe that Dell may have restore disks available from their web site or it may be on a different part of your hard drive. Go to their web site and check it out.

Try doing System Restore in Safe Mode.
1. Reboot system
2. Press F8 repeatedly on the Dell screen
3. Select Safe Mode [enter]
4. Select the OS [enter]
5. Wait till all "multidisks" files complete
6. Login with your name
7. Hit "NO"
8. Choose a Restore Point.

To do PC Restore:
Hold on CTRL and keep on pressing F11 on the page next to the Dell Logo
- it's a black page with a blue bar at the top that says "www.dell.com"
- this page disappears in less than one second. once you miss it, the system will show the
Windows logo.

Just before Windows boots, keep pressing the F8 key. When you get the boot menu, boot into Safe mode and click NO, when asked to logon. This would start System restore. Restore the system to a date when you know that Windows worked fine.

Hi,

Do you have Windows XP? Have you tried a system restore? If you have enabled System Restore, and you have snapshots back that far, you can restore your system back to when it was working. Here are the steps to perform the System Restore.
1.) Click Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools -> System Restore.
2.) Click Restore my computer to an earlier time, and click Next
3.) Use the < arrow to go back to a date where the system was working properly. If there is a bold date, click it and click next. If not, then you don't have it available far enough back.

Please let me know if you need further help. Thanks

Administrator password Dell Inspiron 1720


If the system is asking for an administrator password in Windows and you are wanting to format and reinstall the system, then the password shouldn't be an issue. Most inspiron systems are equipped with a PC Restore partition CTRL+F11 just after the Dell Splash Screen should enable the restore process. If PC Restore doesn't work, then boot to the XP CD and format the NTFS partition and install Windows XP clean. If you have Windows Vista, the PC Restore is run from the F8 Boot menu. If no restore partition is accessible in Vista, then again Boot to the Vista DVD and format the NTFS partition and install VIsta.

Hi,
You should be able to restore the system from the recovery partition on that model laptop.
Shut down the system. Then start it up. Right after pushing the power button to start it, hold down the CTRL and keep tapping the F11 key(for XP). If you have Vista just tap on F8(no need to hold down CTRL). A symantec recovery application (PC Restore) window will start up. just follow the instructions on the window.


Regards.

tjbrown527 --

I have no idea about the difference between XP Home and "Nettops", lol! But, I can help you restore :)

Reboot your PC, when the very first screen comes up (the manufacturer's screen, the one before the Windows splash) press and hold F8 (or tap repeatedly). This will take you to a boot-options menu. Choose "Boot in Safe Mode", allow windows to load.

When it is finished loading, you may be given an automatic choice of either running System Restore, or finish loading in Safe Mode. Choose System Restore, and restore to a date (on the little calander) sometime before your issues came up.

If you are not prompted automatically, and instead it loads to the desktop, go to Start Button ---> Help and Support ---> and under "Pick a Task" choose "Undo changes to your computer with System Restore". Again, pick a date and let 'er rip!

(you can also find it in Start Button ---> Programs ---> Accessories ---> System Tools ---> System Restore)

*****If you are not having problems with your boot, and simply want to restore, you can skip the F8 way and just go straight to restore from your normal desktop!

Whew! Hope some of this helps!

If you need any further assistance, please feel free to post a comment to this post and I will be glad to help!

System restore won't work


Just a thought- go to My computer>click on view system information>system information box, click on system restore, and make sure box is unchecked.
If you have any anti-virus programs like Norton, Macafee or AVG, disable them if you can, as well as any non-Windows firewall programs.
If you can remember recently downloading any other program that might interfere with system restore- anti virus or otherwise- then delete or disable that too.

disable system restore - fix what the problem is and delete the old system restore points and then re enable the system restore and make a restore point again.

If you need more help post back and explain what the problem is or why you are trying to restore it and I will help further.
