How do i back up my pc? I went to Start-all programs-accessories-sytem tools...but there is nothing regarding back up. I also went to PC recovery disc creator..it says it cant create disc. I took laptop into best buy where i bought it, they want to run diagnostic testing told me to back up everything. They told me to get the DVD+R. It says on my label DVD+-R RW or CDRW. I got the DVD+R is that the problem?

    it only gives me the CD Drive E option when Right clicked on my documents. Is it because I only have the DVD +R? Do i need to get the RW? + or -? maybe just use CDRW?

If the label of the cd drive on your computer says DVD+ -R RW, it means you should be able to use any kind of disc to backup your data on.
Get DVDRW or CDRW discs from the store. Insert it in your computer.
Click start. Click My computer. Double click Local disk C. Double click Documents and settings. Double click your name or if you dont see your name, click 'Administrator'. Right-click My documents. then click 'send to'. Click the DVDRW option. Enter a name for the disk. You can name it 'My documents backup'. When it's done copying, it means you've backed up all the files stored in the 'My Documents' folder. If you have files saved somewhere else, you just have to browse to the location of the file and repeat the same procedure.

My Presario CQ60 is stuck in recovery manager mode. I keeps going to startup repair.


Problems starting up a PC can be tricky to fix, since Windows hasn't had a chance to load its arsenal of troubleshooting tools. Some people simply give up and reinstall Windows.

Startup Repair can prevent a time-consuming reinstallation by diagnosing and repairing problems that prevent Windows from starting.

Startup Repair is designed to start automatically if Windows detects a startup problem. For more information about using Startup Repair, and what to do if it doesn't start automatically

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.

Sytem recovery not fully completed


Do you have the OEM Windows CD with Key Code numbers? If yes and there is nothing on the hard drive you want to save you could try a clean install. Go to set-up and make CD-ROM drive the first boot device and install a new OS. Sometimes with Windows this is the easiest thing to do. I see this recovery/restore stuff leaves a lot to be desired. In other words, it doesn't seem to work half the time.
