Depending on how long you have had your computer, system restore usually only goes back a couple of months. If you save all your data (files) that you created and have the system restore disk that came with your computer, insert it into your disk drive and follow on screen instructions.

I deleated the comp.admin. acct . how do i get it back, someone told me safe mode , don't know what to do . will have to scrap the comp. 32 bit dell xp

Hopefully, you know about what date you deleated your stuff. If so, or even if you can guess pretty close, you can restore your computer to an earlier date -- which will result in you still having this stuff.....

Go to: Start; all programs; accessories; system tools; system restore. Choose "restore computer to an earlier time"; follow the will walk you through

Hope that helps

I bought a dell desktop with windows 7 installed. but i now want to install windows xp on that computer. but when i insert the xp cd and select install windows xp option i get an message somewhat like this...

I believe the only way would be to remove Windows 7 from the computer. If the hard drive with windows 7 on has any programs and files you would loose them during the proccess. If you want to run programs that are not compatible with Windows 7, I think you'll be able to tell the computer to run it as XP, or I should contact Microsoft if you have problems with Windows 7 and other programs. You should look at all the avenues before deleting Windows 7 though.

I got a new computer and it does not have the download for my Dell 810 on it. I no longer have the cd that came with the printer. Do you have a short cut to download so I can use the printer? Thanks

Just copy and paste.
Hope this helps.

My 810 acted up suddenly and just stopped working. It had been ok with a new computer which is now 2 years old. I uninstalled and reinstalled the printer driver. That solved my problems.

Window XP may pick it up and install it with its own set of drivers

Vista will probably throw a fit

Go onto the Dell web site they have a software support section that will allow you to download drivers and stuff .

They will ask you for the Product code and other information so it is worth copying down all of the stuff from the small plate on the machine.

Reboot whole computer

Why do you want to restore your computer to its original state? Did you get infected with a virus, or malware , or a rootkit that you believe has compromised the integrity of your system?
If you revert back to the condition your system was in in 2004, you will have to spend hours if not days online downloading years of updates to your os, updating drivers, and reinstalling all your applications and programs, not to mention backing up and re-organizing all your documents and folders.
Please consult the Gateway site about what this operation will do to your system by reading their FAQ on recovery by clicking here
If you do need to reformat and reinstall, there are other ways to do this that might prove easier in the long run, like making an XP sp3 slipstream installation CD.
On the other hand, if you are simply experiencing a slow down of your system and find your applications unresponsive, there are other means of correcting your present configuration that might work instead of doing a recovery install.
Please have a look at this article, including the links at the end.
It may help you to make up your mind...
If you do go with the reformat, even in the wake of a virus, please make backups of your system and documents. There's stuff you might find you need later on....

I want to do a repair of Windows XP PRO w/SP2 & 3

You really probably need to do a "system restore" or a "reformat" on your computer. If you choose to do either it will definitely erase all data on the computer. However when windows is reinstalled it will run much better and with less errors. This also gets rid of any viruses, registry mistakes, etc. Sometimes the only option when a computer gets too bogged down is to restore!

Some computers have system restore built in. Compaqs the computer prompts for the F10 key to be pressed at startup. Dells are Shift + F9 at startup. To see if yours has one look when it first starts up for the option. Also often you can order restore disks from the computers manufacturer, (since yours is custom you probably just need to reformat). Follow the instructions to easily restore your computer back to factory defaults.

A Reformat is a little more complicated. You must have a valid liscensed copy of windows to start with. Insert the disk into the computer and restart. Enter the BIOS (Usually F2 or Delete) and set the computer to boot to your CD Drive. Once this is done hit save and exit (usually F10). Follow the instructions to reformat the drive and reinstall windows.

Hope this helps!

Deleted dell system restore partition

Dell usually supplies all the cd disks your computer was set up to use. the Win xp restore disk will reformat your hard drive with the original partition. I have a dell 4600C desktop and all my original stuff is on the burgundy win xp disk. the auxillary stuff is on the blue cd-s.

Well, chum, windows XP is the operating system, not a specific program. Phil must have been a rather daft fellow to spread such tosh. I do believe what he meant to say was Windows Movie Maker. Right, hope that helps.
