Question about Dell Inspiron 6400 Notebook
My dell system restore partition was accidentally deleted by my computer technician. is it still possible to put it back? how? i really wanted the ctrl F11 function in my laptop. Thanks in advance
Dell usually supplies all the cd disks your computer was set up to use. the Win xp restore disk will reformat your hard drive with the original partition. I have a dell 4600C desktop and all my original stuff is on the burgundy win xp disk. the auxillary stuff is on the blue cd-s.

This site give info on it. However it is not for the novice user:
The only other way would be to copy the hard drive from another dell over yours (which would wipe all the data on your drive.)
As an alternative, make sure you get your tech to make a copy of the XP install CD and a copy of all the drivers for the machine which will at least give you some recovery options.

Turn on the computer.
When the Dell splash screen appears during the computer startup process, press and hold <Ctrl> and then press <F11>. Then, release both keys at the same time.
In the Dell PC Restore by Symantec window, click Restore. Alternatively, press <Tab> to highlight Restore, and then press <Enter>.
