Hi Billy,
depends on what you mean by restore. Assuming you have windows installed, you can make a back-up by going to START > Control Panel > System and Security > Create a backup

(the path above may be a bit off from the wording, the PC I am on at the moment is not an english version.)

Then on the left side there is a link to create a recovery disk or create a backup. the recovery disk option only makes a bootable disk to start your computer if your windows cannot start. This only gives you an enviroment where you can try to fix windows or to restore a backup that you created beforehand with the second option above.

If you create a backup, there are two things to keep in mind... what type of data do you want to back up and how often. You can put check marks on all data that you want to backup (Note: the more data you backup the larger your backup file will be). If you plan on restoring a corrupt windows with the backup you should include "System State".

Restoring from a backup file a.k.a. backup image will ONLY give you back the files that were on your computer at the time you made the backup... that means everything that you created after you made the backup will be lost.

Hope that helps.

NOT ABLE TO INSTALL WINDOW XP


Hi meetabdullah,

Have a nice day.

If you're running Windows XP and your computer software crashes or becomes unusable, you may have to run Windows XP recovery to reestablish your software and make your computer usable once again. When purchased, many computers don't come with a Windows XP recovery disk, but you can download one for free. The Windows XP recovery disk holds almost all of the computer software and files that came loaded with your PC and can assist you in rebuilding your hard drive.

Here are some instructions that somehow could help you:

1.Place a formatted disk in your disk drive. Click on the "Download a Windows XP recovery disk from Microsoft" link in Resources below. Click "Download." Then click "Save." Find your disk drive on the menu and click "OK."

2. Remove the disk when the Windows XP recovery disk download is complete, and place it in the computer on which you need to use it.

3.Shut down your computer; then turn your computer back on. Your computer will automatically start up running on the Windows XP recovery disk, which will allow you to install Windows XP once again.

My daughters computer is a dell latitude D610 notebook running Windows XP.....when powering up XP starts to load and then goes to a blank blue screen....Is there a restore disc or something i can download...


Hi. I provided you a link where to download the restore disk. Once you have downloaded the restore disk, here's the instruction on how to use the disk.

Instruction:

  • Backup all the data you want to keep on an external hard drive, flash drive, or rewritable CD. Resetting your Dell to factory defaults will erase all data currently on your computer.

  • 2

    Insert the Recovery CD into your CD-ROM.

  • 3

    Reboot your computer.

  • 4

    Watch the text in DOS carefully. When prompted to boot from your CD, do so.

  • 5

    Choose System Restore and then follow the instructions presented. Once system recovery beings, it may take a few minutes. Once it's done, your system will reboot again.

  • 6

    Remove the Recovery CD from your CD-ROM and store it carefully. Your system has been reset to the factory default.

    AcerOne d250 recovery?


    you may want to try Active Killdisk to zero out the drive.

    this will efectivly delete everything on the drive (FAT tables, MBR, primary & secondary partitions, etc) and leave you with a TOTALY blank hard drive.

    try running the restore cds afterwards.

    Hi, I have lost the recovery cd for my dell inspiron 710 m


    You can attempt to recover the system using the built-in recovery partition (if your system has one). Shut down the computer completely, and restart it with the power button. When the Dell logo appears, try pressing Ctrl-F11 or Alt-F11 at this screen, and if your system has the recovery partition, it should boot to it, and give you instructions on how to restore your system using this method. If this does not work, however, you can request Dell to send you replacement recovery disks for your model of computer by going *here* Just keep in mind Dell may charge for the disks, so if you do need to order them, be prepared to pay a minor fee, by using a credit card on their secured website. (Usually $20-40 USD)

    Whatever the circumstances, be forewarned that restoring your system with either of these methods will erase the contents of your hard drive, so be sure to back up your important files that you cannot afford to lose *BEFORE* doing the restore, as you will not be able to get them back without advanced data recovery services, which can get extremely expensive.

    Computer does'nt start


    This is usually caused by a registry file that grew too large. Your best bet, assuming that you don't have the WIndows disk because it is a Dell, or another PC type that has the hidden recovery partition, is to run your system's recovery and do a non-destructive recovery that will attempt to repair the OS without damaging your files.
    Beyond that, you are going to need the Windows XP CD to access the recovery console, and that have worked for somany people having similar problem.when you load the restore cd Insert the Windows XP startup disk into the floppy disk drive, or insert
    the Windows XP CD-ROM into the CD-ROM drive, and then restart the computer.
    Click to select any options that are required to start the computer from the
    CD-ROM drive if you are prompted to do so.
    2. When the "Welcome to Setup" screen appears, press R to start the Recovery
    Console. ...
    this will restore the missing files in the system registry.hope this helps thanks and God bless
