There is a possible solution that fixed every computer on my work Domain: Type regedit in Run to open the registry key editor. From there expand the following path: HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/Microsoft/Internet
Explorer/Desktop/SafeMode and delete the Componenets folder. Hope that helps.

Reset bios


Installing a fresh operating system is a good option, and there might be a feature in the BIOS to restore the system to factory defaults. Information on how to do this:

Windows XP: Dell PC Restore

Using PC Restore:

1. Turn on the computer.

During the boot process, a blue bar with www.dell.com appears at the top
of the screen.

2. Immediately upon seeing the blue bar, press <Ctrl><F11>.
If you do not press <Ctrl><F11> in time, let the computer finish
starting, and then restart the computer again.

NOTICE: If you do not want to proceed with PC Restore, click Reboot.

3. Click Restore and click Confirm.
The restore process takes approximately 6 to 10 minutes to complete.

4. When prompted, click Finish to reboot the computer.

NOTE: Do not manually shut down the computer. Click Finish and let the computer
completely reboot.

5. When prompted, click Yes.

The computer restarts.

Because the computer is restored to its original
operating state, the screens that appear, such as the End User License
Agreement, are the same ones that appeared the first time the computer
was turned on.

6. Click Next.
The System Restore screen appears and the computer restarts.

7. After the computer restarts, click OK.

Restore software for ipod 16GB touch


i would be checking the usb lead before doing anything or even replacing it with a new one make sure iis securely connected
the cable near the iTunes symbol represents a problem with the cable
and the cd will not not be able to activate without a connection

Connect one end of the USB sync cable to one of your computer's unused USB ports, and connect the other end to the bottom of the iPhone or iPod Touch.


If iTunes does not start on its own, run it using the desktop or Start menu shortcut.

When iTunes starts, you should see an icon for the iPhone or iPod Touch on the left side of the window.


Click "Summary" in the right pane of the window if it is not already active.

Click the "Restore" button to begin the device restoration process.


ITunes displays a message asking if you want to save the contents of the device to your computer before restoring it.


If you have not backed up the device already, click the "Back Up" button.

If you have already done this, click "Don't Back Up."


Click "Restore." ITunes clears the data from your iPhone or iPod Touch and reinstalls the device's original firmware.

The screen of your iPhone or iPod Touch may shut off while iTunes works.


Do not remove the USB sync cable.

When iTunes is done restoring the device, it displays a message letting you know that the device is about to restart.


Click "OK" to restart the device. If you are restoring an iPhone or iPod touch, wait for the "iPhone / iPod touch is activated" message to appear on the screen of the device before you disconnect it from the computer.

You may now restore your backup of the device or remove it from the computer.


hope this helps

HP had blue screen and said it would shut down. Problem is that it does turn off, so that it can be re-booted. Have tried to shut off PC, but continues to come on and not start.


Hold the power button in for 10 to 15 seconds for hard shut down if that doesn't work unplug power for about 5 minutes then plug power back in and see what happens

If you're still able to access your start menu:
Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>System Restore

Select "Restore my computer to an earlier time" and click next

Choose an available restore point, one of a time before the incident occurred. Then click next.

I'm not sure how long this will take but it will notify you of a successful restore.

How can i restore factory setting with my dell desktop xps400 9150 without media dvds


Most newer computer do not include any media disc for the purpose of restoration. This is for a couple reasons first it cuts down on the cost of the computer and second it cut down on piracy or in other words taking those media discs and installing them on another computer.

However Dell as well as many other computer manufactures use another method that will allow you to restore your computer back to the way it came out of the box.
At the end I included a couple links.
The first one is your "Owner's Manual". You can find all these steps in this manual as well.


The second are other documents relating to your xps400.


Good Luck and I hope this helps.

"Happy (insert preference here)" and "Merry New Year"




To restore your PC to factory settings:

Warning: Anything you added to your system after you purchased it will be deleted. The only way to recover those files and programs are to back them up. I would advise you to get some CD/DVDs and back everything up just to be on the safe side.



  1. Turn on you computer. During the boot process, a blue bar with www.dell.com appears at the top of the screen.
  2. Immediately upon seeing the blue bar, press <Ctrl><F11>. (If you do not press <Ctrl><F11> in time, let the computer finish starting, and then restart the computer again). If you do not want to proceed with PC Restore, click Reboot in the following step
  3. On the next screen that appears, click Restore.
  4. On the next screen, click Confirm. The restore process takes approximately 6–10 minutes to complete.
  5. When prompted, click Finish to reboot the computer. NOTE: Do not manually shut down the computer. Click Finish and let the computer completely reboot.
  6. When prompted, click Yes. The computer restarts. Because the computer is restored to its original operating state, the screens that appear, such as the End User License Agreement, are the same ones that appeared the first time the computer was turned on.
  7. Click Next. The System Restore screen appears and the computer restarts.
  8. After the computer restarts, click OK.
