Hi, I'm having Dell Inspiron 1525 laptop and using operating system is Windows XP. From past one week it is restarting itself. While loading windows blue screen is coming and in fraction of seconds it is...


Hi. All Dell Notebooks has this Image Restore in one of the partitions of the hard drive.

You may restore factory settings of your computer but your files will be lost.

Try to boot using safemode with networking first so you can save your files online.

Turn your computer on and on the Dell logo, press Ctrl+F11 if system came with pre-loaded XP then follow the intructions.

If system came with windows Vista, on Dell logo, press F8 and select Repair your computer and press Enter. Click Next and/or enter your password if asked. If not, follow the intructions until your system goes back to factory image.

Hope it helps!

I was just on my ibm t43 and it froze so i manually turned it off now it wont turn back on. it acts like it is going to then it pops up a screen that say an problem has been detected


Hello, Meagan.

Sounds like an operating system problem.

Boot your system to Safe Mode (press F8 repeatedly). Go to System Restore and choose a date when your system worked OK. Note: with System Restore, everything, including your documents and other files you saved on the hard drive, will roll back to that date.

If you can't access System Restore by Safe Mode, try Offline System Restore:
1. Boot from the DVD
2. Select the Language
3. Click on "Repair your Computer" on the Install now screen
4. Click next on the System Recovery Options screen
5. Click on System Restore.
6. Choose the date to which you want to restore

If still a problem, the last choices are Factory Restore and reinstall. Accessing Factory Restore (restores to the factory settings and will wipe out anything that you have installed or saved on your PC), is dependent on your hardware manufacturer. Boot your system and press F10, F11, Alt+F10, or Ctrl+F11 to access Factory Restore. Follow the prompts.

If still not resolved, you'll probably need to reinstall your operating system.

Hope this helps.

I want to factory restore my dell dimensions 3000.


There are three methods available.

1) Use Windows XP System Restore.

If you cannot access Windows XP, the following two methods are available.

2) Use the Dell Operating System CD, and the Dell Resource CD.

If you do not have these restoration CD's,

3) Use Dell Restore by Symantec

With this method all personal files you have, and any programs, or applications you have installed, or downloaded, will be GONE.

(Personal Files: My Pictures, My Music, My Videos, and personal files you have created)

Turn the computer on. AS SOON as you see -
www.dell.com, appear in the blue bar, Press -
the CTRL key, AND the F11 key -
AT THE SAME TIME. (Not shouting)

If you do not press both keys at the same time, and in time, let the computer load. It may stop at a blank screen, with a blinking cursor.

It's okay. Now press the CTRL key, ALT key, and DELete key at the same time.
This will restart your computer. Try again when you see the www.dell.com logo.

If upon pressing the CTRL key, and F11 key, you go to the next screen, left-click on - Restore

On the next screen click on - Confirm

Takes about 6 to 10 minutes.
After the restoration has stopped, click on Finish.
Your computer will now reboot.

Should you need help with Windows XP System Restore, or using your Dell restoration disks, please state so in a comment.

Hello. I want to restore my Dell Dimension 4300 to original factory settings


press the 'ctrl' and F11 when the blue bar w/the dell.com appears. Inside the Dell PC Restore Partition Dell has supplied the user with a backup image made at the factory, and this backup is stored in the DSR partition. It is this backup that is restored from when the Ctrl+F11 keys are pressed.

Hi,
You should be able to restore the system from the recovery partition on that model laptop.
Shut down the system. Then start it up. Right after pushing the power button to start it, hold down the CTRL and keep tapping the F11 key(for XP). If you have Vista just tap on F8(no need to hold down CTRL). A symantec recovery application (PC Restore) window will start up. just follow the instructions on the window.


Regards.
