Normal restart: select restart from the apple menu, or press the power key (the sleep/restart/shutdown dialog appears), then click the restart button or press the "r" key.
Forced restart (use only if the computer crashes or freezes): Press simultaneously the Apple, Control and power keys.
Forced shutdown (use only if the computer won't respond to anything, not even a forced restart): Press and hold the power button on the computer until the computer shuts off.

My Dell Inspiron 5315 won't let me restore it to Factory Settings I'm not sure if there's a trick to it or if it is possible for a virus to stop me from doing it? I do all the steps and then my computer...

Hello trivium_adan, It sounds like everything you've done is correct!

Try these instructions to restore your computer back to the Factory Settings.

  • Once the Computer "Bootup;" quickly press, tap the[DEL] key, located at the top [Right] next to the Scroll Lock, and END keys"
  • The next window will be the "Recovery Environment."

Note: The wording may differ depending on the type & model computer.

  • "Options:" Select the option, "Repair your Computer."
  • In the next [Systems Recovery] windows, you will have to "Enter" (Location, Password...)
  • Next, choose the box that best describes, the Recovery Wizard:
  • This will have a notice! Restores System back to Factory Settings, or Out of Box!

Note: There will be all types of "Warnings!" Read carefully, before continuing.

Attention: "Once the Recovery begins, Do Not Touch the computer, for any reason at all!"

  • The whole recovery can take up to (4 Hours), the computer will "SHUTDOWN & RESTART several times, several!
  • So until you see the LOGIN" screen, Do Not Touch the computer.

If this information helped? Return and give a "Helpful Rating," please!
Thanks, paul7of9

My keyboard mouse will not function and I don't have an external mouse it is just froze up, can you help me

ok firstly you need to find out whether its a software fault or hard ware easiest way normally would be to turn on pc or laptop keep tapping the F8 key till a boot menu pops up go to safe mode and click enter. if the mouse works in safe mode it will be a software fault in which what i would sugest is to.
1: go to your control panel
2: select system
3: select device manager
4: find your keyboard in the task pane and delete it
5: restart your pc by holding Ctrl, Alt and Delete and select shutdown
6: turn back on
all being well when you return into windows it will say new hardware found and reinstall it.
if not probably be cheaper to purchase a new all in one keyboard

When I turn off the HD, the computer turns off and restarts. How do I correct this problem short of redoing the operating system.

if you are trying to turn of your computer, make sure you choose the right option, cause in Windows XP the choices is restart, shutdown and log off, make sure you choose the shutdown in its dropdown menu.

Shutdown problem

From the Start button, select menu/programs/accessories/system tools/system information, then click on the tools menu and select system configuration utility.

When the program opens, you'll see an advanced button on the bottom right corner. Press it.

Make sure you have disabled fast shutdown (CHECKED). Press OK/OK. If it prompts for restart, don't do it, you dont need to. Press cancel on that screen and then shutdown like you would normally.

Let me know if it works

My XPS 1530 will not shutdown, it only restarts

Try running chkdsk /r and then restart the computer. to do that, click on START, RUN, in the open field, type 'cmd' and press <enter>. A dos window will open. At the blinking cursor, type 'chkdsk /r' and press <enter>. You will get a message that the drive can't be locked and do you want to run it the next time Windows starts. Type 'y' and press <enter>. Now shutdown the computerand restart it. Chkdsk will run and it may take some time. Depending on your installation, you will see a blue screen that will show the progress. Sometimes the screen will stay black and the hard drive light will flash. That's ok. Let it run until Windows loads. Wait until it is completely loaded and then try shutting it down normally.

Good luck and let me know how it works out.
