It wont do the restore

Are you trying to restore to a known good time using system restore or are you trying to reinstall the whole operating system?

If you are doing the system restore via the system tools, then chances are the restore point that you chose wasn't working or none of the restore points work.

If you are trying to do a complete operating system reinstallation, then you need a complete package (OS or operating system).
1. Operating system disc
2. Drivers and Utilities disc
3. Other software installation discs.

I am very much interested to help you with this project, and I would like to get the details of your problem.

When trying to use system disk unable to choose a restoration option

If you are doing a system recovery from disks you created or purchased most times they don't work. You might as well reinstall the operating system.

Have you tried doing a System Restore? System Restore will allow you to select a Restore Point (date and time) when your system was working ok. System Restore does not delete your data, documents, music, pictures, videos or programs unless the program was installed after the restore point you selected.

System Recovery or Factory Restore deletes everything.

I clicked completely restore system to factory defaults, but it does not respond

It's probably wanting you to insert some restore discs into the cd/dvd drive.

Some manufacturers leave it up to you to create the restore discs when you first purchase the system. Some put it on the hard drive for you, which sounds like is not your case. Don't sweat it because most times the restore discs that users have to create don't work.

Have you tried doing a System Restore? Click Start/Programs/Accessories/System Tools/System Restore. Select a Restore Point (date and time) before you started having problems. Unlike System Recovery that takes you back to factory defaults and deletes everything, System Restore does not delete your data, documents, music, pictures, videos or programs (unless the program was installed after the Restore Point you selected).

If System Restore does not work for you, then you can always Reinstall your Operating System.

I am trying to doa system restore but it wont let me, how doi do it

For System Restore to work you need to have the restore points available. If there was no restore points then system restore will not work.

You can try performing system restore from Safe Mode (Best Option more often than not).

Try Below mentioned steps
Step 1: Keep hitting F8 key while computer starts to boot.
Step 2: It should generally take you to windows advanced option. If it boots to windows then you have to try again.
Step3: Once you reach windows advanced option Choose safe mode and wait for the system to boot (Generally a slow process).

Accessing System Restore:

Step 1: Click on start
Step 2: All programs and choose system tool.
Step 3: Look for System Restore (Follow the screen).

Note: You will not be able to choose all the dates in the calender only those dates that are bold will be available for restoring the computer.
Again it might not work all the time so keep trying with different dates in Bold.

When i try system restore when done says error not working

Hello, David.

Unfortunately, System Restore does not always work. If possible, go back to a previous date. If you've tried all dates (usually the dates are bold), and are still unsuccessful, you may need to reinstall the operating system (Vista ?).

It depends on why you needed System Restore in the first place.

Often, if you have spyware, malware or a virus, the only choice is to use System Restore to "turn back the clock" to an earlier time. And, I've seen some spyware totally prevent System Restore from occurring, which may be your case.

If you have not tried System Restore from Safe Mode (press F8 repeatedly), that would be your next step.

If you have spyware, etc., you'll need to reinstall your operating system, if you have already tried to remove the spyware, etc..

Hope this helps.
