Got Dell Inspiron 2650 2002 from a friend, free. Want to restore to factory settings. How? Installed Windows XP and Norton Anti Virus


Hi and welcome to fixya!

There are two ways to restore this machine to factory settings;

First is thru the Recovdery partition in the hard disk itself:

  • 1 Close any windows currently open and click the Inspiron's "Start" button. Select "Shut Down" and choose the "Restart" option.
  • 2 Tap "F8" when the Dell image appears on the screen. Continue tapping the key until the advanced boot menu loads.
  • 3 Scroll down to "Repair Your Computer" and press "Enter" to access the DataSafe local backup screen. Click "Next." Select "Dell Factory Image Recovery and DataSafe options."
  • 4 Click the "Restore without preserving new or changed files" radio button and click "Next." Click "Next" three more times and click "Restart" to restore the disk drive to its original condition. Follow the on-screen prompts to set your operating system settings.

If the hdd was already repartitioned or corrupted, the second option should work:

  • 1 Insert the Dell recovery disk in your Inspiron's optical drive and close the "AutoPlay" window when it appears. Shut down any other open programs. Click "Start" and select "Restart."
  • 2 Tap "F2" as soon as the Dell image appears on the laptop's screen. Scroll to the "CD-ROM" option and press "Enter." Tap any key when you see the "Press any key to boot" option.
  • 3 Press "Enter" when the setup screen appears. Press "F8" and highlight the Dell's hard drive partition. Press "Enter."
  • 4 Follow the instructions on the screen to choose the Inspiron's operating system options. Click "Finish" and remove the recovery disk from the optical drive. Click "Start" and select "Restart."
Hope this helps!

Does not reconize hard drive


turn off the laptop and then take out the hard drive from the laptop. Go ahead and reseat it back into its slot and then turn on the laptop and press F2 to go into the BIOS. It should see it in there. If it doesn't then you know the hard drive is bad and will need to be replaced.

How do I reinitialize my Dell Inspiron 2650?


You should have a CD that says something like OEM CD. Or OPERATING SYSTEM. Put that disc in and reboot your PC. You should see a prompt to press any key to boot from CD. Press enter and follow the prompts to reinstall your operating system... If you don't have that CD you'll need to purchase one from the store or look at installing a free Operating System like Linux. Option 3 (less likely) You have a recovery partition installed and you should see a prompt during boot up that says "press F10 to start recovery" in this case all of the information on that CD is store in that partition on your HD.

Dell inspiron 2650 start-up problem


Mine did the same thing only I don't think it was even checking the hard drive and I found an entry in the DELL owners manual troubleshooting section that said if you powe rit up and the power light stays on but nothing appears on the screen, tyr removing and reinstalling BOTH memory modules and reinstalling them to insure that ey wer making contact.

Mine worked perfectly after I removed both memory modules and reinstalling them.

Be aware though that one of the modules require the removal of the keyboard to access it so it isn't really something that everyone should try on their own.

Keyboard


Try this:

Shut down, unplug the AC adaptor, removed the battery, and hold the power button for up to 1 minute to discharge.

Make sure there are no stuck keys.

Restart.

Dell Inspiron 2650 Boot problem


Hey, Ive had a few laptops with similiar problems. If there are no beeps then most likely there is a problem in the motherboard.

You could try removeing extra hardware like the cd/dvd drive and try to start up again but most likely the motherboard would need to be replaced.

In most cases the price comes near the price of a new laptop so it might be better to buy a new one.

You can remove your harddrive and buy a converter to connect it into your desktop pc or to your replacement laptop. to save your files.

If you need more asistance, let me know.
Good luck!
