You will not be able to set all the programmes back to original as you have no disc and wont be able to get a replacement unless you have spoken to Insignia support, but you can format the pc to the operating systems original installation without the installed programmes by using a friends XP cd, but use you own product code number which will be on a sticker on your tower system, as its the license you pay for and not the actual cdrom.

How to restore to factory

Factory restore requires the OEM restore DVD disk.

First boot the PC and press F2 during boot to enter BIOS. Change BIOS settings to factory default, to make sure the boot device sequence and all other settings are as they should be.
Then insert the Restore DVD into the DVD-rom drive and save & exit BIOS settings. It should then reboot and load from the restore disk.

Ah music to my ears =) this pc I know very well. The easiest way to restore is to restart your pc and when the DELL insignia appears press F8 then a screen with pop up go down till you get to LAST KNOWN GOOD Configuration and viola!! It would help if you made a restore disk once it starts running again or set a new restore point from there on out. Good luck =)

Contact the computer manufacturer. Once they verify system model & serial # on the phone they usually will send a replacement recovery cd at little or no charge. Hope this helps & please take a moment to rate this solution. Thanks.

Restore dvd for d400a

Get Windows CD with a proper license and try to install the Windows fresh by reformatting the system. Before that you would need to backup your drivers. For that use which is a free software. However, the downside of this method is that you won't get any of the additional software that came included with the system, if you did get any.

Need restore dvd for insignia d400a

You can buy it from DELL. They will send it to you for between $20 to $40. Sounds like you have spyware though.

Turn the system restore off. System restore keeps everything in restore. Meaning......... If you have spyware or a virus, it will stay in your system. Run Spybot S&D (This program is free and is better than using msconfig as long as you go through the settings and change everything to the highest settings.) Then do the same with Adaware 2008 (sounds stupid to use 2 things for spyware, but one catches what the other one does not.). I have links on my website ( These links go directly to the download so you will not get the run around. You would do good to try a program called Window Washer. This is a great program that completely cleans anything in your computer that you do not need. It will not clean out anything that you have to have. I have used this for years to clean out my customers computers and have cleaned as much as 3 gigs of trash out. If you contact me I will give you some tools that I have for free that will do a great job on your computer. I have them ready to download and I will give you the link. (

Window Washer Download.

Help.. i lost my Insignia Restore DVD..

Hi, you can go to the manufacturers website and see if they have a reccomended sales point for a restore disk, other wise the only safe solution I can reccomend is for you to buy a retail version of XP PROFESIONAL then run the upgrade edition from that disk and it will reload all of xp and save your current data at the same time.

Getting the Restore DVD to install

Sounds like you want to start a fresh install from your CD/DVD? as soon as you turn on the computer, hit the del key to get into the BIOS (or pay attention during POST as it'll tell you what key to push) Once in there, you'll want to goto the "boot options" tab and set the CD/DVD-ROM to start up first and then the hard drive. Press Esc and save, as it starts up, it should say "hit any key to install windows" and then it's just a matter of following instructions to finish. If all you are trying to do is a system restore, you can goto: Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools -> System Restore and then restore it to a earlier time.
