If you restore your dell there will be no data or program files left as the hdd will be formatted and started again.
Press F8 just before start up for the menu.

Boot up to slow


Hi ladurisjames...

Your computer sounds like it is loaded with "junk"
Lets start by doing a disc cleaning, then a defrag of the hard drive, and then get rid of unwanted pictures, programs, etc.that you never use anymore from your computer.
Last resort will be a System Restore.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------1...Disc cleaning...Click on Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools> Disc Cleanup
2. Defrag the Hard Drive...Click on Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>Disc Defragmenter.
3...Delete any unused programs,files,pictures...etc.
4. Final resort: System Restore...this will restore your computer to a time when it was operating good, you have to pick the date when it was running good....Click Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>System Restore
After you have completed the above your computer should run faster.

Running slow


Check for virus as they are one of the causes to make the computer run slow. Along with that clean your disc of unwanted files, temporary internet files, cookies and unwanted/idle programms. Also de-fragment the disc.

5 ways to speed up your PC

By following a few simple guidelines, you can maintain your computer and keep it running smoothly. This article discusses how to use the tools available in Windows 7, Vista, and http://www.microsoft.com/atwork/maintenance/speed.aspx#">XP Service Pack 3 (SP3) to more efficiently maintain your computer and safeguard your privacy when you're online.

1. Free up disk space

The Disk Cleanup tool helps you free up space on your hard disk to improve the performance of your computer. The tool identifies files that you can safely delete, and then enables you to choose whether you want to delete some or all of the identified files.

Use Disk Cleanup to:

  • Remove temporary Internet files.

  • Remove downloaded program files (such as Microsoft ActiveX controls and Java applets).

  • Empty the Recycle Bin.

  • Remove Windows temporary files such as error reports.

  • Remove optional Windows components that you don't use.

  • Remove installed programs that you no longer use.

  • Remove unused restore points and shadow copies from System Restore.

Tip: Typically, temporary Internet files take the most amount of space because the browser caches each page you visit for faster access later.

To use Disk Cleanup

Window 7 users

  1. Click Start, click All Programs, click Accessories, click System Tools, then click Disk Cleanup. If several drives are available, you might be prompted to specify which drive you want to clean.

  2. When Disk Cleanup has calculated how much space you can free, in the Disk Cleanup for dialog box, scroll through the content of the Files to delete list.

I need to perform a complete recovery on my laptop. however any time i try to do anything it freezes up and/or restarts itself....what steps should i take to perform the recovery?


Hi and welcome to FixYa!

This can be done, but remember when you factory reset a computer, all files and pictures you have saved on your computer will be wiped clean and cannot be recovered. This is permanent. I am providing a link for you to follow steps to fully restore your computer the way it was when you bought it. There is also a manual in a link on the page for your Dell 1525 that shows how to restore if you have XP or Vista.

http://en.community.dell.com/support-forums/laptop/f/3518/t/19245630.aspx


I have performed this on other computer models/makes and it may take a few tries, but it does work. Good luck!

I want to reset the whole system


You can try using the system restore to go to the earliest restore point. That might solve most of your problems. If that doesn't help you can do a complete system restore by doing the following. Press ALT + F10 when you boot up the laptop and see the Asus logo. Follow the promps and you should be good to go.
