YOu can try system restore, think of the possible time where your computer was working properly without hussel then that will be your restoration point, or better try to back up your files and do tjhe factory image . Since this is a DELL computer pressing CTRL+F11 will do the factory default setting of your system that is why it's highly recomended to back-up files first before doing this.

If you want to reformat to factory condition, then press Ctrl + F11 at start-up when the blue bar comes up with "Dell.com" on it. If you miss it then just let it start up, then restart and try again. If it still does not work, press F12 at startup and select recovery option. Please note, if you have deleted the Dell Recovery Partition this will not work for you. You will need to reformat by inserting your Operating System CD at Startup and booting from that (F12).

I need to run system recovery for a Dell inspiron 6400, I do not have recovery disks. How do I set it back to out of the box specs?


If ctrl + F11 doesnt work when you first boot up the laptop, then you dont have a restore partition and you will need to reorder restore disks.
