Question about Dell Dimension 3000 PC Desktop
I am using The Dell Dimension 3000...I am having major problems and want to return my PC to the original Operating State...My computer did not come with an operating CD or drivers CD's...I cannot afford to to take it somewhere to get it reformatted...So was wondering if there is another way that it can be done..
Do a Dell pc restore to clean everything up to its as-shipped state(this will work if you have not deleted the partition)
1.Disconnect the modem cable or the network cable from the computer if a modem cable or network cable is plugged in.
2.Turn on the computer.
3.When the Dell splash screen appears during the computer startup process, press and hold <Ctrl> and then press <F11>. Then release both keys at the same time.
4.In the Dell PC Restore by Symantec window, click Restore. Alternatively, press <Tab> to highlight Restore, and then press <Enter>.
5.When a warning message appears stating that all data will be lost, click Confirm, or press <Tab> to highlight Confirm and then press <Enter>. The Progress window appears. After the restore process starts, Dell PC Restore by Symantec usually takes only 8 to 10 minutes to finish.
When the restore process is complete, the following message appears:
The system recovery process was successful
6.Click Finish, or press <Tab> to highlight Finish and then press <Enter>. The computer restarts.
The software is now installed as it was when the computer was first received.
beware all the personal data will be lost

You may find that you have two partitions on your hard drive showing as a seperate drive in my computer, here there is normally a backup of your pc's initial setup.
There should be a wizard somewhere on your programme files to help you with the backup restoration process, but make sure you save anything important to a cdrom before you start as the system will be completely formatted and installed as new.
