I can not find the icon in the start menu to initiate the system recovery option


If it is windows xp then the recovery option will be under pc help and tools ,this you can get it by clicking on start ???all programs ???pc help and tools.However if you are not able to find this option then simply turn the computer off and then disconnect all the external devices along with the internet cable and then as soon as you turn the computer on tap the f10 key repeatedly and then when you get the recovery page click on ok .Once you get the page where it has the advance option click on it and then select destructive recovery and then click next the recovery will start .

If you have windows vista then go to start and in the search bar type recovery manager and then click on it to start the recovery else instead of the f10 key tap the f11 key and then follow the same instruction as for the XP OPERATING SYSTEM.

Hope this helps you ,all the best

My 6400 did up-grade and closed down. It re-booted and is now stuck on WINDOWS VISTA HOME PREMIUM screen. If I switch off and switch on, it just freezes at same place

Start the laptop and insert the Vista installation disc in the dvd tray. Now reboot the laptop with the disc in. When you see the Dell name tap the F12 key to get to the multiboot menu. When you see the menu come up, scroll down to DVD or cd player. The machine will then look at the dvd player to boot from, the disc will be read and you will see this "Hit any key to boot from CD", I usually just hit the space bar, this will start windows files loading. When windows has finished loading its files, it will ask you want to do. Scroll down and choose repair. Windows will search for all the Windows installations on the disc, there should be only one and it will be listed. Click on that and highlight it and click next. Vista will attempt to repair the and the boot.ini files. When it is finished it will either tell you it fixed some errors or it will tell you that it cannot fix the repairs automatically. In most cases, the repair will completed and you just have to remove the disc and reboot when it tells you to. If it is unable to repair, it will give you other options, choose restore computer to an earlier time, choose a restore point before the update and click next....I usually go back a couple of days just to make sure, the computer will go through a system restore and back itself up a couple of days before the trouble. Reboot the laptop.

Cursor moves but when i tap it nothing happens?

Down on your task bar on the right there is a little screen that shows a green circle when you move your cursor. This is the Synaptics Pointing Device. Place your cursor over that and click your left 'mouse' button (just below where you tap). You will see 'tap to click'. If you click on that it will change it to your 'tap' function. That should solve your problem, hopefully. Hope this helps.

On the bottom bar by the clock, if your computer is newer there should be a small icon that controls your mouse. Simply right click on it and check the box "tap to click" or similar. Hope this helps!
