RETURN A DELL OPTIPLEX GX 60 TO ORIGINAL FACTORY STATE


maybe you have a virus or infection. Maybe you have low RAM Memory. Maybe the hard drive needs to be defragged.

You should just boot from the disk you have and that will walk you thru the install process. Put the Disk in the cd drive. Turn the computer off, then turn it back on and notice the screen for which key it says to hit to Change the Boot Order or Boot Sequence. Hit that key and let it boot from the CD start the recovery.

Hello I have a HP Pavilion a1320N it is running very slow, so I want to do a full recovery back to the original state, but I did not create a set up disks when I bought it. How can I do a full recovery?


Use an external hard drive to backup your files and do the recovery... or better use the System Restore utility to at least restore it to an old backup date.

My emachine pc keeps running slow and crashing with unresponsive script


If you mean that it is taking a long time to carry out commands or you keep getting blue screen problems with a white error message ( might look like: 00000000XXXXEE11 or similar), then you have two possible problems:

Hardware related
Software related

Firstly Software related:
Slow running is often caused by the hard drive getting too full up. Windows likes to use some of the hard drive for a "swap file" (an area that it uses to store and retrieve information on as it carries out commands.) the bigger the swap file, the better it runs.
Also, over time, windows "throws" files anywhere it can on the hard drive, after a while, these take longer to find and the system slows down.

To cure this, in My Computer / C Drive / right mouse click and defragment the hard drive, then run a check for errors (not surface scan). Delete any cookies or other unneeded files from the hard drive and back up or move to another external drive files you do not use.

Worth at this point considering getting another hard drive to install in the computer / or an external USB hard drive.

After this, run a virus scan, to ensure that there are no viruses on the hard drive. You can download a good scanner fro free from DR WEB (cure it).

After this, if you are having the same problems and are getting the error message described above, check to see if you have installed some software recently or a driver for some hardware that may not agree with your system.

After that, it is possible that some windows files (.vxd possibly) have become corrupted. At this point do an over the top repair install using the windows cd.

Hardware problems:
These can range from the RAM on the motherboard beginning to fail (remove one module and check with only one installed). Replace if necessary
To a clogged CPU heatsink, blow any accumulation of dust and debris away from the heatsink to stop it overheating.
To (and this is a big possibility), a failing hard drive. You can test this by downloading a programme called HDD tune (free) and running it to see if the hard drive has any bad sectors or is failing.

After that, consider installing more RAM into the computer

Hi do you here any noise from the hard drive?
If so you should backup your data and buy a new hard drive, install it on your pc and install windows and all of your programs again. This is because the noise you hear means that your hard drive is getting broken

You are absolutely correct. The D partition in your hard drive is getting full. Delete the old backup files to make more room in the D partition.

How do I transfer pictures from a computor that wont write to cd/dvd


If they are on a network, share the folder the pictures are in. The other computer can access the share and you can copy the pictures.

Another way is by using an external USB hard drive. Connect the drive and copy the pictures onto it. Then connect the drive to the other computer and copy them to it.

Or purchase a new DVD-RW drive and regain the ability to write CDs and DVDs.

Computer slowed down considerabily.


Check whether this is not a viral slow down. If not i suggest this

1. Give enough space to the hard drive.
2. Uninstall unused application for a long time and not needed anymore.
3. Install Ccleaner, this can clean your registry, cookies, and other junk files.
4. Defragment your drive. If you have enough space already.

Hp Pavilion a1220n -- Copy file errors when Installing windows


Maybe I can help;
When I install a new hard drive I like to re-install the operating system (OS) as well. Unfortunatly this wipes out all your files.
Typically when files do not copy it's either because they're in use or the media (your new hard drive) is not formatted properly.
Note, formatting erases everything on the drive being formatted.
Instruction for this are easy to find online but are all done for you if you use the OS install CD which will walk you through the setup, formatting, and partitioning.

If you have a way to save your files to another drive such as a usb thumb drive, external hard drive, cd or dvd, I would go about it that way. There's usually alot of uneeded files created by the operating system after a period of time and there's no sense in keeping them. They only slow your system down.

One other thing you can consider if you don't have an external hard drive is purchasing a hard drive enclosure for your old hard drive. You can find them at Best Buy. I paid about $30. Its just a case and usb cord you can use as an external hard drive and also copy any files you can still access on this old drive over to your new one.

Let me know if this helps you
