I have a dell involve laptop while i was trying to set back to factory specks i got locked out and it wont let me access any thing with out my administrator password and i don't no it what can i do to save...


No laptop is trashed when a password is lost. It just takes a little time to find out how to get into the system. I'll assume it is running XP Home that was originally installed on it from the specs I saw when researching. I'll also assume the password is not the one necessary to get into the BIOS CMOS setup- that one can normally be cleared by removing the CMOS battery and letting it set for a few hours or longer so the information is lost. The OS password can be cleared by making a bootable disk for that purpose. I have a Unix CD program that I made from information I downloaded from the Internet. You can do the same if you have access to a CD burner on another computer, say a friend's or one at work. I can get you the program's name if that's the route you want to take.

Following a System Restore on my Dell Inspiron it has come up with windowsroot system 32 ntoskrnl. The computer was not supplied with the full Window's XP home edition CD, just a Dell reinstallation CD...


If you get that message every time you run system restore, that restore point is no longer any good. You need to try a different restore point on a different date. System restore is NOT meant to be a backup. You need to be running a backup of your computer if you don't want to lose your data. Hopefully you will have another restore point, possibly earlier than the one you used, which is good. If you need to reinstall windows, you will need to get a disk. You can send me a message if you need one.

Reformatting pc


what you need to do is put the XP cd in the cd or dvd drive first,then, when the pc is booting up press either F2 or Del depending on bios and the cmos setting screen will appear. Go to advanced cmos settings and the top line normal reads 'first boot device, this will be set at HDD or hard disk, this needs to be changed to cdrom. When you have changed it, save settings and exit, the system will now reboot and an option to boot from cd screen will appear, you then press Enter to boot from cd then follow the instructions to format or install windows.

Make sure that the System Restore option is still enabled in Windows XP. This can be done by right click on the My Computer and selecting Properties. Click on the System Restore tab and make sure the Turn off System Restore button is NOT CHECKED.
