Got Dell Inspiron 2650 2002 from a friend, free. Want to restore to factory settings. How? Installed Windows XP and Norton Anti Virus


Hi and welcome to fixya!

There are two ways to restore this machine to factory settings;

First is thru the Recovdery partition in the hard disk itself:

  • 1 Close any windows currently open and click the Inspiron's "Start" button. Select "Shut Down" and choose the "Restart" option.
  • 2 Tap "F8" when the Dell image appears on the screen. Continue tapping the key until the advanced boot menu loads.
  • 3 Scroll down to "Repair Your Computer" and press "Enter" to access the DataSafe local backup screen. Click "Next." Select "Dell Factory Image Recovery and DataSafe options."
  • 4 Click the "Restore without preserving new or changed files" radio button and click "Next." Click "Next" three more times and click "Restart" to restore the disk drive to its original condition. Follow the on-screen prompts to set your operating system settings.

If the hdd was already repartitioned or corrupted, the second option should work:

  • 1 Insert the Dell recovery disk in your Inspiron's optical drive and close the "AutoPlay" window when it appears. Shut down any other open programs. Click "Start" and select "Restart."
  • 2 Tap "F2" as soon as the Dell image appears on the laptop's screen. Scroll to the "CD-ROM" option and press "Enter." Tap any key when you see the "Press any key to boot" option.
  • 3 Press "Enter" when the setup screen appears. Press "F8" and highlight the Dell's hard drive partition. Press "Enter."
  • 4 Follow the instructions on the screen to choose the Inspiron's operating system options. Click "Finish" and remove the recovery disk from the optical drive. Click "Start" and select "Restart."
Hope this helps!

My daughters 1525 dell laptop will not work properly.You can turn it on the dell name appears and that is it all lights are working fan is working I hope you can help with out me she has all her photo;s...


If the power LED is ON and you can sense the fan as well problem might be on the LCD or Motherboard.

Could you please try this one and give me feedback what had happened.

Remove ac adapter and battery from laptop.

Press and hold down power button on the laptop for 10 seconds.

Plug in the ac adapter.

Hold down the Fn key then press power button once, then just keep holding down the Fn key.

You might not see anything on the screen but please do take note of the error code or beep codes.

Thanks!

I have Dell Inspiron 2650 and AverMedia AverkeyPlus and Philips 100Hz tv, but I cant get the picture on tv.When pc starts well, but after only on compjute.


There is usually a software control for the VGA port. Look for something that looks like a monitor on the function keys at the top of the keyboard. You will have to hold the "Fn" key down while pressing the F7 or which ever function key has the monitor on it. These take a couple seconds to work, so toggle slowly through the modes. There is usually a mode for monitor only (which is what you have now), one for both VGA port and monitor, and one mode for VGA port only.

Overheats and shuts down after about 20 minutes


Usually when a CPU overheats it shuts down and after it cools down you can re-boot it again.
Continual overheating will eventually cause the CPU to fail.

The overheating is usually caused by blocked vents and or dust build up on the heatsink and/or fan. Remove this dust from the heatsink and fan and this should fix your overheating problem, unless you have a faulty fan, in this case you will need to replace the fan.

Inspiron 2650 Laptop keyboard is locked.


If the keyboard is locked ALL the time, try unpluging the power supply, remove the battery, then push and hold the power button and any key on the keyboard for at least 30 seconds. then reinstall the battery, plug the pwoer cord back in and reboot it.

I had the same problem and that is what the DELL techs had me do. I had the problemm frequently for a while and then it just quit recurring. I haven't had the problem for a long time now.

I hope this helps.
