Cannot complete restore processing: it stuck on "Next" button

In trying to restore the original operating system of T2958, I followed "Next" button upto the screen of "What's your computer's name?" ... and stuck to no-move at all.

Is there way to pass the screen and finish the restoration?

    I describe the problem again: Booting with the eMachine's original CD and agreeing on the warning of reformat and restoration, it takes about an hour of non-interuption process. After that it reboots and starts to asks basic questions on each wizard step with buttons of "Go Back", "Skip", and "Next". I answered and selected Next button on "What is your primary language" and "Time zone". At about 3rd screen, on the box for computer name, I have tried many different answer/no-answer on each cold-boot, but could not pass the screen.

    I even tried to hook the hard drive on another PC as a secondary drive and looked at it. It seemed to be OK. So apprently it has a problem in "booting" - eMachine's control.

  • kchang703 Jan 09, 2009

    I wish It allows me to access Safe mode...
    eMachine's restore process needs to go through its wizard steps, one of which I cannot get thru.

    At this point where I give up everything in the hard drive contents, can I reinstall the recovery CD's operating system, after reformatting the drive from other PC?

    What do you think?

The problem is hardware.

You cannot restore the system because of an hardware fault, this cause an exception , and installation does not finalize.

Try replacing the RAM modules, or if you have two modules start setup with just one.

Remove the battery before accessing your laptop's hardware.

Factory system restore


The System Restore tool built into Microsoft Windows allows you to dial the operating system back to an earlier time without deleting any of your files.
The Dell OptiPlex 755 has a few features that can affect a restoration to your system and get you running again if your system is not behaving as it should.
Use the Dell PC Restore tool is a last resort option, as the operation wipes all the data on your computer and returns it to its original condition.

Click "Start," "All Programs," "Accessories," "System Tools" and "System Restore."
Choose "Restore my computer to an earlier time," then click the most recent date on the calendar in bold print. Select a restore point from the list, then click "Next."

Accept the warning and click "Next." The restore process restarts your computer; check to see that the problem is solved after the computer restarts.
If not, you can restore back further.
Follow the steps again, going to the next most recent restore date, until the problem is resolved.

PC Restore

Power off the computer. Turn on the computer, and while it's booting, hold down "Ctrl" and press "F11" in Windows XP or "F8" in Windows Vista or later.


Click "Restore" then "Confirm" in Windows XP.
In Windows Vista and later, click "Repair your Computer," then "Next." Log in with a username and password.
Click "Dell Factory Image Restore," then "Next."
Confirm that you want to reformat the hard drive, then click "Next."


Click "Finish" when the button appears.
Your computer reboots, with the operating system nowrestored to the same state it was in when the computer was new.

How to you do a factory restore for windows vista


Computer users restore their operating systems for several reasons, such as the presence of corrupted files and to return the registry to its original state. This removes third-party software that consumes valuable memory space and also rids the PC of malware and spyware. Windows Vista, although not the most popular Windows operating system, offered users the Vista Business Edition and the Vista Enterprise Edition, both designed for use by businesses or individuals.

Click the Vista Start button to open the Start menu and click "Control Panel." Click "System and Maintenance" followed by "Back Up and Restore Center." Click "Back Up Files" followed by "Continue." If prompted for an administrative password, enter the password and click "Continue." This opens the Where Do You Want To Save Your Back Up? page. Check the radio button to indicate where to save your back up data. Options include "On a Hard Disk, CD or DVD" and "On a Network." Click "Next." This opens the Which Files Do You Want To Back Up? page. If you chose hard disk, you must save the backup to an external drive, such as USB hard drive or flash drive. Check the radio buttons corresponding with the types of file you want to save and click "Next." Click "Save settings and start backup." Continue when the Backup Complete message displays. b> Restore b> Remove all peripherals from your computer, such as scanners, faxes and printers. Do not remove the keyboard, monitor or mouse. Power down your PC. After shutdown, power it up. Hold the "F8" key during startup before the Windows logo appears on the screen until the Advanced Boot Options menu displays. Select "Repair your Computer" using the down arrow on your keyboard and press "Enter." Choose your language setting and click "Next." Log in as the user that holds administrative credentials and click "OK." Your computer manufacturer will offer you the option of restoring to factory settings. For instance, if restoring Vista on a Dell, you must select "Dell Factory Image Restore" and click "Next." On other computers, click "Next" after choosing to restore to factory settings. Select "Yes, reformat hard drive and restore system software to factory condition" if using a Dell.

If using another computer, select a comparable choice, such as "Reformat the hard drive and operating system to factory condition." Click "Next." Click "Finish" when the restoration is complete.

My computer says configure updates and then it automatically turns off


This will be a long process of troubleshooting and may end up of restoring your computer to a factory settings. You can try the steps below:
First is boot up to advance boot options, to do this follow the steps below: -Turn off your computer -After pressing the turn on button start tapping F8 key until you see the Advance Boot Option. -Try choosing Last Known Good Configuration if it fail try Safemode, Safemode with networking or safemode with command prompt, if one is successful use system restore to restore your computer to an earlier date but if it fails you'll need to use your Operating System Disc to use the repair option.
Here's how to access system restore incase you're able to access Last Known Good Configuration, Safemode, Safemode with networking or safemode with command prompt: Windows XP: Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, and then click System Restore select Restore my computer to an earlier time then select a bold date on the calendar and click Next on the Confirm Restore Point Selection page, click Next. System Restore restores the previous Windows XP configuration, and then restarts the computer. Then click OK on the System Restore Restoration Complete page.
Windows 7 and Windows Vista: Click Start, point to Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, and then click System Restore select Restore my computer to an earlier time then select a bold date on the calendar and click Next on the Confirm Restore Point Selection page, click Next. System Restore restores the previous Windows configuration, and then restarts the computer. Then click OK on the System Restore Restoration Complete page.
If you're on safemode with command prompt: At the command prompt, type %systemroot%\system32\restore\rstrui.exe, and then press ENTER, System Restore window will pop-up then select Restore my computer to an earlier time then select a bold date on the calendar and click Next on the Confirm Restore Point Selection page, click Next. System Restore restores the previous Windows configuration, and then restarts the computer. Then click OK on the System Restore Restoration Complete page.
If all the steps above fails you need to use the recover disc or the operating system disc to do a repair on your computer. Revert back in case you need steps for using start-up repair.
Note: If the steps above and start-up repair fail there's no other option but to restore your computer to factory settings.
