Every new Dell computer comes up with a built in utility to load Windows once again (Dell Recovery). But the bad part is that it takes your computer to the factory settings. So all your data is lost.

    Perfect. Thats the one. You can use this recovery in case the computer does not work.

    But as I said that you should use it only in case of emergency, otherwise you would loose all the data.

    The procedure to use it is,
    As soon as you turn the computer on, Press and hold the Ctrl key and tap on the F11 key. It should be pressed as a combination. That would start the recovery process.

Reset hdd lock for acer aspire


Step 1:
The Dell Inspiron 1501 is a laptop computer which ships with the Windows Vista operating system. Recovering a lost password can seem difficult, as you will be locked out of the passworded account until remedial measures are taken, but it is not impossible. Recover from a lost password on your Dell Vista system by using the password-recovery features of your operating system.

Restart your Dell 1501 and tap "F8" as the computer is booting. Choose the "Safe Mode" option and press "Enter." Select the "Administrator" account to log in to the computer in Safe Mode. Click "Start," type "control userpasswords2" in the "Search" box and press "Enter." Click on the locked account and press "Reset Password." This resets and recovers the password on your Dell computer.

Installing a driver for a BJC-85 on a Dell Laptop running Windows 7 32 bit


There is no Windows 7 driver planned as this printer is obsolete on the cannon website.
It does not even support windows XP or Vista, only up to Windows 2000.

How do i restore my dell inspiron 1501 to factory settings without the disc? i lost it and im goin nuts...


Contact Dell to purchase a Recovery CD for your model Dell laptop.
The other way is to do a new Windows install. Use a Windows installation CD, it must match the Windows version on the Windows Product Code label on the bottom of your laptop.
You will also need to download the device drivers for your model laptop from the Dell WEB support site, make sure the download the correct XP or Vista version of the drivers that match the Windows version you are installing.

Need to install a pirated version of vista.


Since it is a DELL, it was sold with a license to use Windows XP.

So, the very-easiest solution is to contact DELL.

For about $20, you can get a replacement set of CDs/DVDs, and then you can install a _LEGAL_ version of Windows XP.

Note that "Windows 7 Release Candidate" is a free download;
it is the follow-on to Vista.

So, until June 2010, you can use Windows 7 for *FREE* -- and then pay an "upgrade" fee in July 2010, if you still want to use Windows 7.

Laptop blue screens when trying to reinstall vista


The problem might be with the bad sectors on a hard drive. You should run Scan Disk on a partition where you were trying to install Windows Vista.

Startup repair will not fix problem


thank  for the responce 
if you can risk loosing all the data then you  could go ahead with reinstalling the Operating system
if you have a windows xp  installation disc  you should go with that. but after that you might have to find the drivers for your laptop  from the internet
if you need any help  finding those you could always contact me
.


 windows vista might have all the drivers for the laptop preinstalled (that is just my guess as i have see this quite a few times) after you install vista but for that you will have to  purchase a windows vista installation disc
thanks......

Window cd


Hi,
The windows vista DVD that you have is an OEM and not a retail windows vista copy. If your friends computer is a non dell system, you would not be able to install it on his computer in the first place. If its a dell computer purchased before 2007 , it will not install.
In all other conditions it would install without any problems



Thanks
