System restore will only allow you to restore back at a certain date, you can ask for a much earlier date and restore again, if you cannot get an earlier date, you MUST go into your BIOS and reset your computer, or do a fresh restore to "Just Out of Box". The latter is what I would do. If it's staying in safe mode, you can go into your BIOS and do your resets. While there, reset your password for admin so your children cannot open your unit at all.

    Can u tell me how to do this step by step

  • Rigger Nov 15, 2014

    Since you already know how to do "system restore", and it's naturally in your computer already, open it and at the bottom of the screen you'll see find earlier dates. Click on it and go with the earliest date from now that is listed. Do that first and if still not resolved, I'll try remember the steps tp get tou your Bios. Let me know what happens.

SOURCE: Can't restore factory intallations and settings: Vaio VGN-FE880E

Are you doing DESTRUCTIVE recoveries or are you doing NONDESTRUCTIVE recoveries? Try another hard drive in the machine and recover to that. Nondestructive recoveries replace the operating system without destroying the personal data. Its possible the original problem is propagating over to the recovered systems. Do a destructive recovery. Understand any data not backed up will be destroyed. Possible the original problem was a trojan virus.

Press F8 as the laptop boots up, instead of selecting boot in Safe Mode, select Last Good Known Configuration.
With luck it will return to normal.

Restart your system. As soon as the computer reboots and when you see the blue line on top of the screen with a label www.dell.com that the time that you have to hit ctrl+F11. Once Dell PC Restore appears click on the restore button.

Best of Luck

STOP: c000021a {Fatal System Error} 0xc0000034 0x00000000 0x00000000 HELP?!


This is not an easy one to deal with if you don't have some things like a boot disk. The error is most likely caused by something that was installed or restored wrong. The best windows option is to use F8 and select last known good config. Then if it starts you can uninstall any software that you added just before this error..IF you cannot do that then you need to be able to boot to a separated disk and use file utilities to remove any programs that might be causing this.

Dell latitue D610 stuck on black screen with a blinking cursore.. help?


First, try and boot into safe mode by powering off your computer then powering it back on and tapping the f8 key, after that you should see safe mode and other options below it, click the first option which is safe mode, then go into your start menu and go to your system restore which in Windows 7 and Vista is located in accessories and then system tools, then choose a restore point earlier than the date you are on. This is a temporary fix and you will need to get a virus removal done asap. Hope this helps.

Hi, I have a Dell inspiron 1110 and have the error code 2000-0146. It starts normally but only mouse is working, i can only see the Windows 7 wallpaper. I tried to change the harddrive in BIOS to ATA, but...


The hard drive might be about to become a paper weight. Try booting into the 'Safe Mode'. Press F8 as the computer is starting up. Select Safe Mode. If/When you get to the 'Safe Mode' go to Start>Run. Type cmd. Then type sfc /scannow

This would fix any corrupt system files. If the drive is dying, you should get youself a bootable live version of linux on CD or USB and save your personal data.

Why the system automatically go to safe mode


If you are using Windows XP then you may have the /safeboot set in the boot.ini file which will force XP to always boot into Safe Mode.
When the system has started, click on Start then Run and type MSCONFIG as the command to run.
Open the Boot.ini page tab and make sure that the /SAFEBOOT option is not selected in the Boot options section of the page.
Save the change and restart Windows and it should start normally.

I forgot my password in my pc dell vostro 1015 and i have no sollution plz help me to overcome this problem


Step 1: Enter Safe Mode


a) Start or re-start your computer.


b) Before the Windows 7 loading screen appears, Press 'F8? to enter Advanced Boot Options.


c) Use arrows to choose 'Safe Mode' when you can see the Advanced Boot Options screen.


d) Press 'Enter' and wait for Windows 7 files to load.


e) Log on with an administrator account when you can see the log on screen


Note: Well, when you are presented with the Advanced Boot Options screen, there are 3 types of Safe Mode. They are the Safe Mode, Safe Mode with Networking and Safe Mode with Command Prompt, and the 3 options are all available for you. Here above we take Safe Mode as an example, but if you choose Safe Mode with Command Prompt, you'll need to input related to command prompt to reset the password.


Step 2: Reset the forgotten Windows login password in Windows 7


Now you could diagnose and solve some serious computer problems in the safe mode and reset the forgotten Windows login password in Windows 7 as follows:


1. Click 'Start' button, input 'lusrmgr.msc' into the Search box and press 'Enter'.


2. In the 'Local Users and Groups screen', click 'Users'.


3. Right-click the account that you need to reset the password for, and then click 'Set Password'.


4. Type and confirm the new password, click 'OK'. (You can go to 'Local Users and Groups' screen by right-clicking 'Computer' to select 'Manage' on desktop.)


Step 3: Log on your password protected PC again with the new password since you have successfully performed Windows password reset for Windows 7.

Hello,

That's a very nice and brilliant idea to have an intact data you must have a back up data. So my recommendation please repair or it is advisable to re-install your operating system to ensure your operating system will be 100% operational. Make sure you have your installer in operating system and your laptop drivers.

Thanks
