How do i restore my pc to factory condition without the disc, when i try and use the disk, there is a disk read error. I've already tried F11 and ctrl F11 at the boot menu.


Turn on the computer.

When the Dell splash screen appears during the computer startup process, press and hold <Ctrl> and then press <F11>. Then, release both keys at the same time.

In the Dell PC Restore by Symantec window, click Restore. Alternatively, press <Tab> to highlight Restore, and then press <Enter>.

Hi my ps3 80g system wont read games anymore can u help also if i restore ps3 completely will i lose trophies i dont want to lose them because ive got about 2000


Don't restore anything.

This is the 2nd most common problem with PS3's. This isn't a bad problem. Your laser/lens will need to be replaced. Do you see the time clock in the top right corner going around and around? If so, you are just having laser/lens problems. If you do not see the time icon spinning when you insert a disc, your PS3's Blu Ray drive controller board has gone bad and you will need to send it to Sony and not a

3rd party technician. Certain problems are only repairable by Sony. Good luck.

System Repair? Help?


Insert the disc in the tray. Restart the computer. The computer will not boot in the normal mode but will boot with the repair disc. Now follows he instructions to complete the repair or complete pc restore. It is easy to understand.
If you restart the computer after inserting the disc 1 in the tray and the computer does not boot with the disc. then restart again and keep tapping F9 key and it will ask you to boot from cd/dvd rom so select it and press enter and it will boot with the cd. It might ask you to press any key to boot from cd. You may press any key on the keyboard at the very moment you see the message.

Ipod wont sync


You should restore your iPod using iTunes. This will fix the software issue you are having with the syncing of the iPod. :) Below is a step by step just in case you need the information.

How to restore iPod (ARTICLE NUMBER HT1339)
Open iTunes, and then connect your iPod to your computer using the USB or FireWire cable that came with your iPod.

After a few moments, your iPod will appear in the Source panel in iTunes.
Select your iPod in the Source panel and you will see information about your iPod appear in the Summary tab of the main iTunes windows.

Click the Restore button. You will be prompted with one or more restore options that may prompt iTunes to automatically download the latest iPod Software.

The 4 possible restore options are: Restore Option

1: Restore - Restores with same iPod Software version already on iPod. Restore Option

2: Use Same Version - Restores with same iPod Software version already on iPod even though a newer version is available. Restore Option

3: Use Newest Version - Restores with the latest iPod Software available. Restore Option

4: Restore and Update - Restores with the latest iPod Software available.

If you are using a Mac, a message will appear prompting you to enter an administrator’s name and password.

A progress bar will appear on the computer screen indicating that the first stage of the restore process has started.

When this stage is completed, iTunes will present one of two messages on screen with instructions specific to the iPod model you are restoring.
Restore Instruction 1: Disconnect iPod and connect it to iPod Power Adapter (typically applies to older iPod models).


Restore Instruction 2: Leave iPod connected to computer to complete restore (typically applies newer iPod models).

During the stage 2 of the restore process, the iPod will show an Apple logo as well as a progress bar at the bottom of the display. It is critical that the iPod remains connected to the computer or iPod Power adapter during this stage.

Note: The progress bar may be difficult to see since the backlight on the iPod display may be off.

After stage 2 of the restore process is complete and the iPod is connected to the computer, the iTunes Setup Assistant window will appear asking you to name your iPod and choose your syncing preferences similar to when you connected your iPod for the first time.

your best bet is to get a convertor connector for the laptop drive to full size IDE drive and put it in a desktop as a 2nd drive to format the laptop drive using the desktop, put it back in the laptop and do a clean install/restore.

Dell inspiron 1200 recovery disk


Hello,

If you are just wanting to restore the machine to a factory state you can follow these instructions according to the manual which can be found at http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/ins2200/en/om/D88330a.pdf


To use 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 restarting, and then
restart the computer again.

NOTICE: 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.

If you need the actual disk, you can check your warranty here http://support.dell.com/support/topics/global.aspx/support/my_systems_info/details?c=us&l=en&s=gen by entering your service tag from the side of the machine. If its in warranty you should be able to get a new set shipped to you.

If not, you can contact Dell here http://support.dell.com/support/topics/global.aspx/support/dellcare/contact_technical_support?c=us&l=en&s=gen and asking for information on replacement disc for your model.

I hope this helps. Please remember to rate this information.

Thanks

Factory restore


some dells are preconfigured with a restore partition. I wouldnt know if your unit still have this. but try this

Upon Boot up. (when you see the dell logo) Press Control F11 and see if it brings you up to a menu that would restore your laptop to factory configuration.

Follow the oncsreen instructions and you should be able to reinstall it automatically


Assuming you dont have the restore partition anymore then you need to to do it the conventional way and that means having all those recovery disc (hope you still have them). Insert the first disc and boot from there.
