Question about Dell XPS 200 PC Desktop
If i restore my dell xps200 will it totaly restore my running windows xp
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.

Insert the Recovery CD into your CD-ROM.
Reboot your computer.
Watch the text in DOS carefully. When prompted to boot from your CD, do so.
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.
Remove the Recovery CD from your CD-ROM and store it carefully. Your system has been reset to the factory default.
