Repair start up


i found this very good guide: 1. If your operating system is XP, CTRL and F11 key simultaneously when you see the dell logo after turning on the Laptop and follow the screen instructions.

* Power the computer on.
* When the Dell screen appears press and hold the CTRL and F11 key simultaneously on the keyboard, then release them both at the same time.
The Dell PC Restore by Symantec window appears.
* Click the Restore button or press the key to highlight Restore and press the key.
A caution message appears advising that all data will be lost.
* Click the Confirm button or press the key to highlight Confirm and press the key.
The Progress window appears. Once the process is begun, Dell PC Restore usually takes only 8 to 10 minutes to complete.
When the restore is complete, the message The system recovery process was successful appears.
* Click the Finish button or press the key to highlight Finish and press the key.
The computer will restart.

2. If your operating system is VISTA / Win 7, tap F8 key when you see the dell logo. It will take you to advanced boot menu options under which you will see Repair your Computer, Select that option and enter your password if it asked, then you will be seeing list of options like system restore, command promt, etc., In that the last option says Dell PC restore or some thing like that. Select that option and follow the screens .. Thats it.

* Start the computer.
* As the computer starts, press the F8 key until the Advanced Boot Options menu appears on the screen.
* Press the (Down Arrow) to select Repair Your Computer on the Advanced Boot Options menu, and then press Enter.
* Specify the language settings that you want, and then click Next.
* Log in as a user who has administrative credentials, and then click OK.
* Click Dell Factory Image Restore.
* In the Dell Factory Image Restore window, click Next.
* Click to select the check box for Yes, reformat hard drive and restore system software to factory condition.
* Click Next. The computer is restored to the default factory configuration.
* When the restore operation is completed, click Finish to restart the computer.

3. If in both case, the Factory default didn't work, then your laptop's factory image defaults partition have vanished (i.e. Corrupted / Deleted). So you have to do Operating System re installation with the Operating System CD / DVD shipped along with laptop. Follow the below link to install windows XP Pro on your own.

RESET TO FACTORY SETTINGS


What type of Laptop ? and operating system on it ?

Restoring your laptop to factory settings can take up to an hour to perform, depending upon the type of laptop and operating system on your machine. Prior to performing a system recovery, you should remove any external peripherals, such as ExpressCards, PC Cards, and USB-connected printers and hard drives. Turn on the laptop. Press the "F8" key until the "Advanced Boot Options" screen appears. Select "Repair Your Computer" using the arrow keys. Press the "Enter" key. Choose your "Language," then "Next." Login with an administrator-level username and password. Click "OK. Select "Dell Factory Image Restore," then "Next." Tick the check box next to "Yes, reformat hard drive and restore system software to factory condition." Click "Next." Click on "Finish" after the computer has concluded the factory restoration. b> Restore on an HP b> Insert the HP recovery disk. Restart the computer, and press the "F11" key. Press the "F" key to "reinstall factory settings." If your computer's operating system is damaged, you may only see "perform a full system recovery" as an option. In this case, press "R." Insert any disks if prompted by the restoration program. Otherwise, permit the computer to restart as needed. b> Restore Via Disks (Generic) b> Insert the "Recovery Disk" or "System Recovery Disk." If you have more than one disk, make sure you insert "Disk 1" or "Part 1." Press any key to boot from CD if prompted to do so. Choose a "Full System Restore," "Restore Factory Settings," or another option worded similarly. Confirm that you want to perform the restoration. Press "Next," "Yes," or "OK," as needed. Press "Finish" or "Restart" when prompted by the computer. Hope this helps.

My dell inspiron 1520 says ntldr is missing at startup and I'd like to know how to perform a system restore to factory default


Hi shylton45,

Welcome to FixYa! How are you doing?

You did not specify the operating system you are using, whether Windows XP, Vista, or Windows 7.

1. If your operating system is Windows XP, press CTRL and F11 key simultaneously when you see the dell logo after turning on the Laptop and follow the screen instructions.

  • Power the computer on.
  • When the Dell screen appears press and hold the CTRL and F11 key simultaneously on the keyboard, then release them both at the same time.
  • The Dell PC Restore by Symantec window appears.
  • Click the Restore button or press the Arrow key to highlight Restore and press the Enter key.
  • A caution message appears advising that all data will be lost.
  • Click the Confirm button or press the Arrow key to highlight Confirm and press the Enter key.
  • The Progress window appears. Once the process is begun, Dell PC Restore usually takes only 8 to 10 minutes to complete.
  • When the restore is complete, the message The system recovery process was successful appears.
  • Click the Finish button or press the Arrow key to highlight Finish and press the Enter key.
  • The computer will restart.

2. If your operating system is VISTA or Win 7, tap F8 key when you see the dell logo. It will take you to advanced boot menu options under which you will see Repair your Computer, Select that option and enter your password if it asked, then you will be seeing list of options like system restore, command promt, etc., In that the last option says Dell PC restore or some thing like that.

Dvd combo on Dell dimension 2400 will not run. Lights up on disc insertion but goes no further. Windows Explorer does not recognise the drive.


Please check if the Drive can be recognize in the BIOS if it cannot be seen in Windows. To do that, restart your computer and press F2 key when you see the Dell logo. If you saw the drive in BIOS, I suggest to perform the following steps:

(A) Reset the factory defaults and clear the NVRAM.

Perform the following steps to enter the system setup, reset factory defaults, and clear NVRAM.

1. During the POST process watch for the lights on the keyboard to light up and turn off, when this occurs start tapping the < F2 > key.

NOTE: Pressing the F2 key to early in the post process will result in a keyboard failure message and waiting to late will result in the operating system loading.

2. Once in the system setup turn on all the lights on the keyboard by pressing the < Caps Lock > key , < Scroll Lock > key, and the < Num Lock > key.
3. Press and hold the < Alt > key and press the < F > key. System will beep once.
4. Press and hold the < Alt > key and press the < E > key. System will beep once.

NOTE: If multiple beeps are heard, then repeat this step until only one beep is heard.

5. Press the <Esc> key, and then press the <Enter> key to save the changes and reboot the system.

(B) Uninstall drivers and software for the attached device in Safe Mode.

1. Restart the computer and enter Safe Mode.
2. Click the Start button, point to Settings, and click Control Panel.
3. Double-click the System icon and click the Device Manager tab.
4. Look for any drivers related to the device in question and uninstall them. Look for any Unknown devices that may also be listed.
5. Click No if you are prompted to restart the computer.
6. Click Start, point to Settings, and click Control Panel.
7. Double-click the Add/Remove Programs icon.
8. Look for any software that may be related to the attached device in question and uninstall it.
9. Restart the computer.

(C) Run System Restore.

To run the System Restore utility using Microsoft® Windows® XP, follow these steps:

1. Click the Start button, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, and then click System Restore.
2. Click Restore my computer to an earlier time, and then click Next.
3. A calendar with a list of restore points appears.
4. Click the day of the calendar that you want to restore to, and then select the appropriate restore point in the list of restore points for that day.
5. Click Next.
6. The system will then confirm the restore point you selected.
7. Verify the information, and then click Next.
8. The system will then restart and restore the computer back to the restore point that you selected. Once the system has restarted and you have logged back on, the system will notify you that the restoration is complete.
9. Verify that restoring the system has fixed your problem. If it has not, you may need to restore to an earlier restore .
