Unless referring to the old legacy keyboard that you have already mentioned

Assume the USB keyboard was purchased & supplied with the Vostro 200?
If correct then it will have a USB 2.0 cable connector

Do not connect USB keyboard using indirect adapters/hubs etc.

Ensure the USB keyboard is connected directly to one of the USB Root Hub ports, (e.g. one of the rear panel USB ports) before you power on the PC

Does tapping the F2 key during boot loading allow access to System Setup (BIOS) Settings?

Ctrl+F11 will not work if you have previously done an XP Clean Install or deleted/modified partitions

If keyboard is OK then you may have to do a Windows XP Clean Install
Also note that tried to do a system restore by going into Start--> All Programs --> Accessories --> Systems Tools --> System Restore t
OR

If it is there you will have to start the computer, press F8,choose "Repair Your Computer"

How to reset emachine desk top to manufactute setting?


Each computer manufacturer has a special key you have to hit WHEN YOU POWER ON the computer.E Machines and Gateway PC use F11,Here is the trick- power the computer off, and then power it back on and start tapping the appropriate key F11 until a screen pops up saying "DO YOU WANT TO DO A SYSTEM RESTORE" Once this system restore window opens, stop tapping and just follow the instructions. Some of the older computers may ask you for the restore discs so have those ready. Most newer computers do not need restore discs. The whole system restore could take 2 or 3 hours. When done, reboot your computer and it should be all new and speedy again.

Will not boot to windows xp


There is a cost free remedy you can use if your hard drive will not boot up, or when you have a BLACK SCREEN. This radical resetting of the computer is called a system recovery (not a system restore) This will put your computer back to factory settings but you will lose any files on your Hard Drive like pictures, music and word documents.

1. THIS IS HOW IT WORKS :Some older computers and ALL Toshiba laptops come with a system restore disk. Simply place the disk in the CD tray and hit ENTER, if that does not work, power the computer off and on with the disk in the tray, wait for the special system recovery screen to appear, (be patient)

2. If you were not issued with a disk, then the following is for you.
Each computer manufacturer has a special key you have to hit WHEN YOU POWER ON the computer.
HP and Compaq desktops/towers/laptops F11, E Machines and Gateway F11,
Sony PC/laptop F11, IBM and Lenovo towers and laptops all use F11 function key for system recovery.
Dell laptop use Ctr + F11
Acer and TRAVELMATE Laptop Alt + F10
Toshiba laptop F12

3. Here is the trick- power the computer off, and then power it back on and start tapping the appropriate key eg F11 until a screen pops up saying "DO YOU WANT TO DO A SYSTEM RESTORE" OR "WELCOME TO SYSTEM RECOVERY MANAGER" Once you see something appear on the screen, stop tapping and just follow the instructions. Some of the older computers may ask you for the restore disks so have those ready. Most newer computers do not need restore discs. The whole system restore could take 2 or 3 hours. When done, reboot your computer and it should be all new and speedy again.

I hope you find it very helpful. Thank you for using fixya.

Any other ways besides restoring Operating system on the emachine 727 laptop from a restore/recovery media?


If you have not reformatted or replaced the hard drive, most emachines come with a built-in utility. Normally you press F11 to start the recovery but .... the exact key does vary from model to model sometimes. You should see a Press F11 key when the computer is first turned on if the the utility is still intact.

How can i perform a factory restore on my emachine w3619 without my start up disk..my computer will not load my sims 3 game and it used to be able to i tried everything (including system restore) to fix it


F11. every manufacturer has a magic little button to push. E-Machines uses F11. When it first starts up, press F11. There won't be a prompt for it, just keep tapping the F11 key until it asks if you want to do a system restore. it should bring you to a factory restore utility. Don't forget to back up all you data first. When you do the restore, it erases all your saved data.

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.

Master Reset


That wont restore the function to your n key, it needs a new keyboard. If you dont use it as a portable then you can buy a cheap USB keyboard from your local computer shop and it will work fine. If you really want to restore it then most Dells use the F11 key at the Dell splash screen at boot time
