I want to restore my dell vostro 3500 to factory image


You'll need restore disks or if there is a restore partition on the hard drive then you can restore it from there. It will be less problematic to get some anti virus software to rid the computer of a virus.

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!

I am trying to restore my laptop to factory settings after some serious problems. essentially what iv tried to do is; started it in safe mode, started up the hp management centre thing, and i selected the...


Your laptop is waiting for the restore disk. Some PCs keep the restore data on a separate partition of your hard-disk, but it seems yours doesn't, therefore it's waiting for a disk version. As you don't have this on disk, you have a problem, but people are often too hasty to restore to factory settings.

Turn the laptop off by holding the power button down for about 5 seconds. You should still be able to power back on and start in Safe Mode as you haven't actually started the factory restore. Once booted, select system restore again and this time choose a restore point/date rather than the factory settings option. If you've been having problems for a while, try choosing the earliest restore point available and see if this solves the problem. You will need to update some of your software again after doing this - in particular, make sure you update your Anti-Virus software as recent update patches will have been lost.

Other than this you have little option than to re-install Windows and everything else from scratch, unless you can obtain the factory settings on disk from somewhere.

Hope this helps.

My Dell won't boot up at all. Tried booting up in safe mode and everything. Nothing seems to work.


Press F8 the moment you see Dell logo screen and select Last Known Good Configuration. If it still doesn't boot to windows, your operating system might be corrupted and needs reinstallation.

Dell systems has an Image Restore options. In Vista, press F8 on the Dell Logo Screen and select repair your computer. If you're running on XP, Press Ctrl+F11 to boot from the Factory Image Restore partition. Follow the instructions carefully to restore system back to factory image.

Unable to restore back to factory image read error


Are you using Factory CD/DVD or Made from utlity Disks or from hard drive utility option.
This seems to be a CD read error.
I found the same error code need help for posted for HP, Compaq, Gateway, ETC.
ALL new setups with the MAKE RECOVERY DISK UTILITY and NO factory disks.
Factory recovery disks are available for $60 and up from manufacturers.
Other option is Install Retail OS - get drivers from manufacturer - Install software you want to use.
Other option is expensive but reliable.
Factory option would be for your system only.

*.GHO files are Norton Ghost images that are used by some OEM's to create a factory defuault image. When you restore this it should set the pc back to the same condition it was in when u purchased it however this will erase all your personal data on the drive.

If you are getting this error it means that the ghost image you are using to restore the PC is corrupted and cannot be used. eaither the CD is trying to read this data from a corrupted restore partition or the restore disk you have is bad (sometimes the disk may look fine- no scratches or anything and still be bad)

Try checking the disk for scratches or smudges but if you dont find any you can clean off the disk you will have to contact e-machines for a replacement disk.
