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.

Factory system restore


The System Restore tool built into Microsoft Windows allows you to dial the operating system back to an earlier time without deleting any of your files.
The Dell OptiPlex 755 has a few features that can affect a restoration to your system and get you running again if your system is not behaving as it should.
Use the Dell PC Restore tool is a last resort option, as the operation wipes all the data on your computer and returns it to its original condition.

Click "Start," "All Programs," "Accessories," "System Tools" and "System Restore."
Choose "Restore my computer to an earlier time," then click the most recent date on the calendar in bold print. Select a restore point from the list, then click "Next."

Accept the warning and click "Next." The restore process restarts your computer; check to see that the problem is solved after the computer restarts.
If not, you can restore back further.
Follow the steps again, going to the next most recent restore date, until the problem is resolved.

PC Restore

Power off the computer. Turn on the computer, and while it's booting, hold down "Ctrl" and press "F11" in Windows XP or "F8" in Windows Vista or later.


Click "Restore" then "Confirm" in Windows XP.
In Windows Vista and later, click "Repair your Computer," then "Next." Log in with a username and password.
Click "Dell Factory Image Restore," then "Next."
Confirm that you want to reformat the hard drive, then click "Next."


Click "Finish" when the button appears.
Your computer reboots, with the operating system nowrestored to the same state it was in when the computer was new.

Emachines c2881 unable to upgrade to sp2


Yeah, but you may not care for it.

I, personally abhor the automated feature of Service Packs.
I would rather download Manually, and see what I'm getting.

Takes longer?

Sure.

Cramming junk down my throat that I don't want, don't need, and it is just filling good space I need on my harddrive?

Uh, no.

What to download, there's so much stuff, and I don't know what I'm looking at?
Just download the basics.

What?

Okay, download manually one at a time. When you can't boot your computer, Yep, that one has got to go.

Acer, (Excuse me, I mean eMachines), wants how MUCH?
You told them you could buy a better, used, computer, for that much.

Right?
(I know. I know. Be nice. There's always time to be bad. Lol!)

Lemme see. What could Acer have done for 150 bucks.
Motherboard? Ummm. Harddrive and new genuine copy of Windows XP? Ummmm.

Naa!

They were going to pick your computer apart, to see what the problem was.

You stated " I even tried not using the restore cd but a copy of XP again...."

Meaning a;
1) NEW genuine copy of Windows XP?
2) Genuine copy of Windows XP from another computer?
What are we talkin' about here?

I want to know what the original problem was? Why were you using the Restoration Disk in the first place?

Post back in a Comment.

Windows Viat will not shut down on comand, keeps rebooting


you might have a virus infection, I'll advise to use a free virus scanner like http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows/products/security-essentials
after the virus scan, try turning off, if it repeats you can do a system restore using the microsoft system restore feature which can be found in the control panel

Bro it is a normal problem of some hardware component units, depend on its hardware manufacturer. because some of the system units need to plug first all the peripherals before you start-up using the computer unit so that it will analyse and familiarize all the peripherals attach on it during reboot mode.Bro follow this steps. 1.plug your PS/2 or USB mouse connector to its port at the back of your system unit.
2. turn off or restart your system unit. 3. or turn on the system unit if you're using turn off mode. 4. wait while the hardware is on reboot mode till windows logo appears.

Cyclic boot and reboot after installing SP2


If you have the Windows XP recovery disk you should boot into the disk and do a repair install of the Windows OS. You can also press 'F8' before or right after the Windows XP splash screen comes up and tell it to either boot into Safe Mode or "Boot with last configuration that worked". If you boot into safe mode, go to control panel and programs and uninstall the sp2 installation. Please comment back if you need further assistance. I will be providing a How-To on how to recover a system using system CDs today.

Good Luck,

Problems when installing sp2 on my dell 4400


Reboot and keep tapping on F8 into Safe Mode. You can select "Last known good configuration" or continue In safe mode and do a system restore to the day before you installed the SP3. To do a system restore, go to Start, Programs, Accessories, System Tools, System restore. Windows XP SP3 has some issues with certain programs giving the blue screen of death.
