SOURCE: are the cds mandatory to perform recovery on the

The RECOVERY CD's are specifically for each and every computer and has the WINDOWS license number etc embedded in it and the hard drive and motherboard serial number as well. You can get it back to factory standard by using any original windows CD and using your Wiondows Key number on the sticker on your computer. Then you can afterwards download the hardware drivers, and all the software that originally came with the laptop, from the internet by going the the DELL.COM website and identifying your specific machine by typing in your computer's serial number. It would then (normally does) take you to a page wher you will find all the drivers and sofware needed.

Hi shylton45,

Welcome to FixYa! How are you doing?

You did not specify the operating system you are using, whether Windows XP, Vista, or Windows 7.

1. If your operating system is Windows XP, press CTRL and F11 key simultaneously when you see the dell logo after turning on the Laptop and follow the screen instructions.

  • Power the computer on.
  • When the Dell screen appears press and hold the CTRL and F11 key simultaneously on the keyboard, then release them both at the same time.
  • The Dell PC Restore by Symantec window appears.
  • Click the Restore button or press the Arrow key to highlight Restore and press the Enter key.
  • A caution message appears advising that all data will be lost.
  • Click the Confirm button or press the Arrow key to highlight Confirm and press the Enter key.
  • The Progress window appears. Once the process is begun, Dell PC Restore usually takes only 8 to 10 minutes to complete.
  • When the restore is complete, the message The system recovery process was successful appears.
  • Click the Finish button or press the Arrow key to highlight Finish and press the Enter key.
  • The computer will restart.

2. If your operating system is VISTA or Win 7, tap F8 key when you see the dell logo. It will take you to advanced boot menu options under which you will see Repair your Computer, Select that option and enter your password if it asked, then you will be seeing list of options like system restore, command promt, etc., In that the last option says Dell PC restore or some thing like that. Select that option and follow the screens .. Thats it.

  • Start the computer.
  • As the computer starts, press the F8 key until the Advanced Boot Options menu appears on the screen.
  • Press the Down Arrow to select Repair Your Computer on the Advanced Boot Options menu, and then press Enter.
  • Specify the language settings that you want, and then click Next.
  • Log in as a user who has administrative credentials, and then click OK.
  • Click Dell Factory Image Restore.
  • In the Dell Factory Image Restore window, click Next.
  • Click to select the check box for Yes, reformat hard drive and restore system software to factory condition.
  • Click Next. The computer is restored to the default factory configuration.
  • When the restore operation is completed, click Finish to restart the computer.

3. If in both case, the Factory default didn't work, then your laptop's factory image defaults partition have vanished (i.e. Corrupted / Deleted). So you have to do Operating System re installation with the Operating System CD / DVD shipped along with laptop.

Hope that helps. Thank you for using FixYa.

I have a dell inspiron mini notebook and when i try to boot it up the screen shows the dell symbol then it goes to a black screen then just shows a blinking cursor? What could be causing this problem?


- it seems that your notebook is not booting to windows
- try to restart and hit F8 to boot to last known good configuration
- you might want to remove peripherals attached to your notebook
- if you can't boot to last known good configuration, try safe mode
- if you can boot to safe mode with networking, perform a system restore and select system schedule checkpoint
- if you can't perform system restore, then you might end up losing your files and perform a dell pc restore
- to perform a dell pc restore go to support.dell.com

Dell 1150 laptop configuration module problem


Hi, you can perform a system restore by accessing safe mode by pressing the ESC button during bootup. Restore system to a time before the problem began. You will need to perform a full virus scan straight after normal bootup is achieved. Hope this helps

I need to reset my Dell Inspiron B130 to factory setting


Using PC Restore in Windows XP or Media Center
new_notice.jpg Notice: Restoring the original factory image erases ALL existing data. This includes files, folders, programs, drivers, E-mails, photos. Before performing a PC Restore, back up all personal files. If you do not back up your personal files, the data will be lost.
1 Turn on the computer.
2 When the Dell splash screen appears during the computer startup process, press and hold <Ctrl> and then press <F11>. Then, release both keys at the same time.
3 In the Dell PC Restore by Symantec window, click Restore. Alternatively, press <Tab> to highlight Restore, and then press <Enter>.
4 When a warning message appears stating that all data will be lost, click Confirm, or press <Tab> to highlight Confirm and then press <Enter>.

The Progress window will appear. Once the restore process starts, Dell PC Restore by Symantec usually takes about 8 to 10 minutes to finish.

When the restore process is complete, the following message will appear:
The system recovery process was successful.
5 Click Finish or press <Tab> to highlight Finish and then press <Enter> to restart the computer.
The software is now installed as it was when the computer was first received.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe
