Question about Dell Dimension 3000 PC Desktop

Make recovery disk from oem installation disks

I have a Dell Dimension 3000 which came with WinXP, several disks. Can I put the operating system, not on several disks, but on one, and get that from a "snap-shot" of the OS as it works now? Tell me how. I am not very smart on recovoering, for example, Internet Explorer when I reset my Dell, and I would like to, if it were possible, do this: Just put in one disk, reboot and have things IDENTICAL to a healthy OS. Tell me how or that it cannot be done from just one disk. Thanks a lot!

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 3000 series won,t install drivers from install disk after fresh install of.windows xp sp2 .It is like the pc is trying to read the disk but nothing happens.This is the drivers and utilities...


Hi - You're right. What happens is Dell wants you to load the original disk and you didn't. You went to a different operating system. Now you have to go to the DELL SITE. No problem really if you just think of their website as another DISK.. Just look around - download what you need and put it on a thumb Drive - then transfer it like you would any other drive.
Go here and your on your way. It is a little HARDER at first - but you get all the latest updates which the original disk never had.

How do I delete everything that is on my dell dimension 3000 and reinstall the original software that came with the computer?


First, you need to find the original installation disks that came with your computer. There's a Dell System Recovery disk that will wipe your computer and reinstall everything as if it had just come from the factory. Insert the Recovery CD, restart your computer, and press F11 or F12 to access the boot menu. When you get the boot menu, select the CD/DVD ROM drive as your boot device. This will lead you through the re-install process.

I tried to restore my Dell Dimension 3000 computer with disks and now it works worse than before for. I tried to do the Repair (letter R) and now it is asking all of these questions that I know nothing...


get a computer that is not dell, dell will over charge you for repairs and alot of the parts are not interchangeable so they are hard and costly to repair, if i where you id find a Compaq or Hp anything but dell rilly, then just take the hard drive from the dell and put it as slave in to the new machine, then you have a new computer with all your old documents that is reliable and easy to fix

My pc will not boot up it says windows/system32/ is missing


For that you need recovery disk.
Put that disk in cd/dvd rom.
Then when you power up the computer press F1 or F2 or "del" key to enter in bios.
Then go to boot option then set first boot device as your cd/dvd rom then save settings and exit.
Then it boot with that recovery disk then follow the procedure and choose "R" for recovery console then type in prompt "chkdsk /r"
then press "y
then it fix error on harddisk.
Then resatrt computer then if still same error then again boot computer with disk then choose "r" for repair previous windows then it repairs it.
Let me know if you need further assistance.
Thanks for using FixYa.

I want to replace my hard drive in a dell dimensions 4300 pc. The original operating system was Win ME (Dell OEM) with an upgrade to XP Home (Dell OEM). How do I reload the operating system?


If you have the oprating system disk with you thats the most convenient way to install the OS. Else the only option left for you is to contact dell and then order a new OEM disk which costs only $10 - 11 which is very less as compared to the price of a new OS

just start "Dell Driver Reset Tool.EXE"
and run "Sownd driver for 3000.EXE"
driver for vga "Intel(R) 82865G Graphics Controller.exe"

and the Ethernet driver "Intel PRO100 VE Network Connection.exe"
