RETURN A DELL OPTIPLEX GX 60 TO ORIGINAL FACTORY STATE


maybe you have a virus or infection. Maybe you have low RAM Memory. Maybe the hard drive needs to be defragged.

You should just boot from the disk you have and that will walk you thru the install process. Put the Disk in the cd drive. Turn the computer off, then turn it back on and notice the screen for which key it says to hit to Change the Boot Order or Boot Sequence. Hit that key and let it boot from the CD start the recovery.

Will not Reboot back into Windows?


Well you kinda messed up your windws instillation and the only way you are going to get the pc working again as a complete format and reinstall..

1.) boot from the windows xp cd,
2.) delete the partition to remain with one huge unpartationed spcce.
3.)select this unpartationed space and hit enter
4.)do a full format and let windows reinstall it self.

this will remeover everything on your harddrive including the messed up files and boot sector, rewrite you mbr etc..
WARNING IT WILL REMOVE EVERYTHING..

so you will need to reinstall all your drivers and software..

if you need further help or details reply here ..

Dell Optiplex GX270 will not boot from disk


Does it show

boot from cdrom?
did you answer (Y)
then hit spacebar?
have the bios set to boot from cdrom/first boot device cd-rom?
If any of these settings are not applyed you will not restore xp on your computer

go into bios and conferm settings

first boot device if set as floppy or hard drive change to cdrom
on some systems you can hit the (f12) key to bring up a boot window and select the cdrom and boot from there then it will ask the normal questions

I have many problems in my dell gx 270 desk pc


1.go into the control panel under sound and make sure the volume is at least half way in the middle of the slide selector. also check the volume nob on your speakers, and there is also a volume control in media player. If all that does work, download and reinstall the driver from dell site again.
2. in system tools go to clean disc, a box opens, put a check mark in everything there (you don't need any of them) run it. then go back into system tools and this time select disc defraggmenter and click on defragment and go have a snack, when that is done reboot.
3. if you didn't put a password in when you reinstalled XP you won't need one. just click ok. and if you don't want to see it at all, in the control panel under Users turn off the Guest user ...
now down to the important stuff...that is not my picture you are seeing.
so I hope this info helps you. please leave a rating..thank you kindly

Win vista uninstall


Put your window XP disk into the Disk drive. Start up your computer. When it asks you what Drive you want to install it on select C:\ (where Vista is) Say yes to deleting the current Operating System and follow the instructions from there.

You did say you wanted to Uninstall Vista!

If you mean Dual Boot Vista and XP, then you will need to create a Logical Partition of about 10 Gb to install XP on and when asked where to install select this partition. But note that XP will wipe the Boot sector clean of all other Operating Systems which means that if you want to Dual boot then you will have to reinstall Vista again to get Dual Boot functionality.
