Simple, It wouldn't keep any old Windows 95, 98, ME or NT installation floppy disk unless you need them for old device drivers that you still use. I would still keep Windows 2000 or XP installation CD thats for sure.

What's your problem? Virus Help


That particular virus infection is a SERIOUS pain in the ****. Save yourself a major headache and bring it to a computer shop that specializes in virus/malware removal for a set price of $50 - $100. I've personally removed that virus from several computers and it's very tricky, and great at morphing and hiding code in several places. Not to mention the fact that it will eventually delete all your icons on the desktop and start menu.

Dell dimension 5150 can not return to factory settings using ctrl f11 error code in recover my computer wizard ec950025. i know nothing about computers


Hi,

Eversince PC Restore has been put to Dell computers, it has been convinient for home users to reset their computers back to factory settings. This error indicates that the factory image settings pre-stored in the hard drive of your computer is corrupted already. What you need to do is to perform manual reinstallation of Windows. Assuming still have the Recovery Disks for your computer, you may follow the steps from this LINK01.

If this computer was shipped before September 28, 1994, you may take advantage of its Lifetime Phone Support from a Dell Technical Representative. You may double check the shipped date of your computer from this LINK02. Prepare your computer's Service Tag number that can be found at the back your desktop on a white sticker with a barcode on it then call 1-877-293-1197.

If you have lost your Recovery Disks, you may request these CDs by calling 1-877-293-1197.



I hope this works for you. Kindly reply for further assistance. Good Luck!


Thanks for using Fixya!

Hi:
Basically, you need to do four steps:
1) Run the Windows OS installation
2) Install all drivers off of the driver CD
3)Install programs and software that came with the computer, or ones that you added .
4) Connect to the internet, and validate your copy of windows, and run Windows Update again and again, until there are no more updates to download.

Make recovery disk from oem installation disks


You can use your recovery disk to start your PC,in an emergency then use recovery CD to repair your operating system,or completely install windows (all personal info.and files will be lost). but if your computer starts up Dell has the tools you need to get you up a running. I included a link to Dell web page that will give the info. you asked for. Larry

Dell Dimension 8200 won't power up


If the power button does not light up at all, I would guess the power supply has a problem.
