Hi,

Lets try this !
Step 1 - click start - run- type regedit - press enter and it'll open registry editor.
Step 2 - Locate, and then click the following registry subkey: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
In the right handside, you will see upper and lower filters.
Right click on them one by one and delete.

Restart your PC and see the results.

It should be able to boot from the DVD or CD rom drives before checking the hard drive by default, but somebody could have changed bios settings which could cause it to not work. The factory (OEM) restore disk is DVD media, so you would need to use the DVD drive.

F2 during bootup to enter BIOS and check your boot sequence to make sure that the DVD drive comes before the hard drive. Also, the card reader on D400's tend to fail and no longer work, so it may be a good idea to dissable that from the boot sequence. The card reader can usually be found as a USB device in the boot sequence menu.

How do you clean off a computer system and reinstall original settings to start over. we have a d400a insignia computer. How is the best way to restore default settings.


Hi there!
Maybe what you mean is how to reformat your computer.
Depending on the make and model of your system , you may have two choices.

1. The first will restore all your computer's original settings, applications, and drivers, yet shouldpreserve any programs and files you have added. (The few times I've tried this have yielded very different results, so be sure your data is backed-up!) That being said, you should be able to do something like this:
Start>All Programs>System Recovery>Application & Driver Recovery.

2. The surest method is to use the Windows recovery CD that came with your machine. This method will completely wipe-out and reformat your hard drive, then do a new installation of Windows. Be sure all your files are backed up so you can reinstall them, and that you have copies of any programs you wish to reload.

I would not suggest you perform this operation unless you are knowledgeable with computers. You may suffer the risk of deleting important files on your computer. You may seek help from a qualified technician to do this.
Hope this helps!

Restore dvd for d400a


Get Windows CD with a proper license and try to install the Windows fresh by reformatting the system. Before that you would need to backup your drivers. For that use http://www.innovative-sol.com/drivermax/ which is a free software. However, the downside of this method is that you won't get any of the additional software that came included with the system, if you did get any.

Hard drive


What exactly do you mean you lost your hard drive? You lost your data? Your hard drive is completely broken? What is the result? You cannot boot up? I'm assuming you have WinXP Home? Please be more specific is what's happening to your computer, your description is vague.
