You can use the system restore option or press F2 when pc boots. You can also set pc to run cd/rom as first boot drive and load from a startup disc if you have one.

Reset to factory settings


Did your computer come with a recovery disc, Windows disc or have you create a recovery set of discs?

If after reading all of this you find yourself overwhelmed or unwilling to try, take it to a shop.

Another option to the below copied from the Help section to reach the Recovery would be to open the Control Panel. If Category view, under System and Security, select Back up your computer, then Recover system settings, **Then Advanced recovery methods. If in Icon view, select Recovery and you will be at the ** above. There's where the discs above will come into play. If.you don't have any of those, you will have to hope they have a hidden partition on the drive containing the recovery which will either show itself there or in the F8 process below..

To open the System Recovery Options menu on your computer 1. Remove all floppy disks, CDs, and DVDs from your computer, and then restart your computer using the computer's power button.
2. Do one of the following:
*If your computer has a single operating system installed, press and hold the F8 key as your computer restarts. You need to press F8 before the Windows logo appears. If the Windows logo appears, you need to try again by waiting until the Windows logon prompt appears, and then shutting down and restarting your computer.
*If your computer has more than one operating system, use the arrow keys to highlight the operating system you want to repair, and then press and hold F8.
3. On the Advanced Boot Options screen, use the arrow keys to highlight Repair your computer, and then press Enter. (If Repair your computer isn't listed as an option, then your computer doesn't include preinstalled recovery options, or your network administrator has turned them off.)
4. Select a keyboard layout, and then click Next.
5. On the System Recovery Options menu, click a tool to open it.

Got Dell Inspiron 2650 2002 from a friend, free. Want to restore to factory settings. How? Installed Windows XP and Norton Anti Virus


Hi and welcome to fixya!

There are two ways to restore this machine to factory settings;

First is thru the Recovdery partition in the hard disk itself:

  • 1 Close any windows currently open and click the Inspiron's "Start" button. Select "Shut Down" and choose the "Restart" option.
  • 2 Tap "F8" when the Dell image appears on the screen. Continue tapping the key until the advanced boot menu loads.
  • 3 Scroll down to "Repair Your Computer" and press "Enter" to access the DataSafe local backup screen. Click "Next." Select "Dell Factory Image Recovery and DataSafe options."
  • 4 Click the "Restore without preserving new or changed files" radio button and click "Next." Click "Next" three more times and click "Restart" to restore the disk drive to its original condition. Follow the on-screen prompts to set your operating system settings.

If the hdd was already repartitioned or corrupted, the second option should work:

  • 1 Insert the Dell recovery disk in your Inspiron's optical drive and close the "AutoPlay" window when it appears. Shut down any other open programs. Click "Start" and select "Restart."
  • 2 Tap "F2" as soon as the Dell image appears on the laptop's screen. Scroll to the "CD-ROM" option and press "Enter." Tap any key when you see the "Press any key to boot" option.
  • 3 Press "Enter" when the setup screen appears. Press "F8" and highlight the Dell's hard drive partition. Press "Enter."
  • 4 Follow the instructions on the screen to choose the Inspiron's operating system options. Click "Finish" and remove the recovery disk from the optical drive. Click "Start" and select "Restart."
Hope this helps!

Factory settings required


Telephone Dell. For a small fee, they will ship you a complete set of "System Restore" CD/DVD disks, to match the Operating System that was factory-installed on your computer.

Or, look on the C: drive for a utility that can "burn" a new set of "System Recovery" disks.

Need unlock codes for administator logon


You or a previouis owner set the code.

For myself, I would have selected something like admin as the pass.

If you cant find it and you are using XP or Vista and you need to get into the Administrator user, you will probably have to reload the OS.

Blank Monitor


Start pressing F8 at boot

When the Windows Startup menu appears, select ENABLE VGA MODE

This will boot the system in 640 x 480 resolution but the video driver will be installed. Once at the desktop, either reset the display to the normal resolution settings or reinstall the video driver.
