Hooking up a Internal Hard drive


You probably need to give more details. If it's a replacement drive, did you reinstall Windows from a CD? Did you copy from the original hd? It's simple enough to remove the two cables from the original drive, physically remove and replace the drive, and hook up the new drive. But then you'd need to boot to a Windows CD in the CD/DVD player to format and install Windows, if that's what you're attempting to do.

There's possibly a recovery partition on the old drive )or a recovery CD). If so, you'd connect the new drive to a second power cable, and data cable (which might not be included in the tower) :

(from http://support.gateway.com/s/Manuals/Desktops/8510406.pdf)

To restore system software from the Recovery discs:
1 Insert the Recovery disc #1 into the CD or DVD drive.
2 Restart the computer, then press and hold
R when prompted to display the restore process options. The
Options menu appears.
3 Select a restore process option:
- Press R to boot from the hard drive recovery partition
or CD. If no recovery partition is found, go to Step 4.
- Press F to format the hard drive and perform a full system
recovery, then go to Step 5.
4 Click a system restore option. For more information, see
"Restoration options" on page 5.
- Non-Destructive System Restore (Recommended)
- Full System Restore (Destructive)
- Full System Restore (with Backup) (Advanced Option)
5 Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the system
software restoration process.

Lost the instalatoin cd what do u sugest??/


What's the model and make of your pc? The last operating system, was it preinstalled or you installed it yourself?

Most companies create a hidden restore partition and you can use this to restore/format/reinstall the operating system.

Other option:
Assuming you installed windows
1. If system restore is enabled, go to:
a. Start
b. Programs
c. Accessories
d. System Tools
e. click on System Restore.
2. Once system restore is loaded, restore your system into the first day you installed the machine. This is like setting your system back to its original setup.

If all fails. Buy yourself a cd/dvd.

Hope it helps.

I want to restore my computer to its factory setting


Some computers will, at startup, tell you to press F11 to recover the computer. This will restore to original factory settings.
If you created recovery disks when you bought your computer, you can use them to do the same thing.
If you have neither, you'll have to use your system disk that came with the computer (if you got one with the computer) and reinstall the operating system. Then you'll have to install all the drivers.
If you have none of these, you are basically out of luck unless you can get a windows CD/DVD

How can I perform a system restore?


You have the option of using the help menu off your start menu, using the built in system restore on you windows operating system and going back to a time before you were having any problems. This is the easiest way to do a system restore. Using your CD will generally make changes on your hard drive, including doing a full format.

I hope that you have found this information helpful. If you do find it helpful, please leave positive feedback for me.

Thank You,

When i turn on my computer i get a error message that the stystem registry data file is missing how do i restore the registry file?


Your system is corrupted. You need to reinstall it, but first backup your data. If you can't boot into the operating system, try a live CD, I would recommend you ubuntu live CD, download from ubuntu.org (http://www.ubuntu.com/getubuntu/download), just insert it and reboot from the CD. Once the system is ready, you can copy your information to a CD/DVD and then try to reinstall the original operating system.

Still trying to restore my emachines comp. tried restore windows xp when prompted, it came back with error accessing file?


This error can show up during installation of the operating system either via the hard drive (the restore feature is located on the hard drive and shows up as a drive letter under My Computer) which indicates that you have bad memory,
OR
You are installing from a DVD or CD, in which case it could be either bad memory or a bad disk.

good luck

How do I return our Dimension 5100 Dell Desktop back to it's original state? Lost the recovery CD.


Have you tried restoring your operating system to a previous restore point?
To do this click on start- all programs - accessories - system tools - system restore. Then choose a date from the calendar which corresponds to a time before you began to experience problems on your PC. Follow the on-screen instructions to restore your PC to its original state.
Note that a system restore will remove any programs which were installed AFTER the selected restore point date.
Hope this helps.
