Here are the Dell instructions for PC-Restore. The actual process is listed in step 3
http://support.dell.com/support/topics/global.aspx/support/dsn/document?c=us&cs=2684&l=en&s=pub&docid=DC47E7957E35BBC0E030A68F27280D16&journalid=752C8744BD74435FE040AE0AB6E1477A&Query=cGMrcmVzdG9yZQ==&SystemID=PRN_ALL_A926&ServiceTag=&contenttype=-1&os=-1&component=-1&lang=-1&doclang=en&toggle=false
When you start the system, after the Dell Splash Screen, there should be a black screen with a blue bar across the top with www.dell.com in white letters. If that page does not show, then PC-Restore will not work. If you do see that screen, you have to be very fast with the CTRL+F11 key combination at that screen. It should open PC Restore by symantec. On a system this old, it if very likely the restore image is no longer intact and my not function. If you get into the tool and it errors out, or you have no PC-Restore, then you will need to install XP from the CD and load drivers.

My Dell Dimension 2400 has stopped working - how do i restore the factory settings ?


Hello,

It appears your model Dell 2400 should have been supplied with the CD's for reinstalling Windows XP, CD will be green or blue in color and the drivers and applications that came with the computer.

If so, back up your files first to an external drive and then put the CD in the CD drive and reboot the computer. It should come up to reinstall XP.

If good to go, you will be prompted to install the second Cd as well as online XP updates.
Software that was installed after you bought the computer also wouyld have to be reinstall as well as restoring your backed up file.

Rememberm all data is lost when you reinstall your operating system, unless these is a choice on install that may ask for destructive, or non-destrutive (keeps files).

I am attaching a link to Dell for your to copy and paste into your web browser for the support page for drivers and user guide in the event you need to reveiw the process.

Dellgx150 i need to reset the bios settings back to default how do i do this?


Go into your BIOS by pressing F2 when you first turn on the computer. Try holding down the ALT burron and then press the F key and you should hear a beep. This will tell you that your BIOS has been reset back to the factory defaults. Then press ESC and exit saving changes and you'll be good to go.

If you need more help, feel free to let me know.

Trying to do a factory restall of Dell demnension 2400


typically you don't need to press ctrl at all -- usually f11 does the trick -- or going into accessories and system tools and looking for factory restore or something similar, the program has different names depending on the manufacturer. System Restore will only bring it back to a previous date...
