Get a USB CD drive, insert a winXP pro tablet CD, go into bios and tell it to boot from USB device, turn off, attach the USB drive and fire it up. That should reformat and once you get Winxp working you should be able to get the necessary drivers from the Dell web site. Tech suppt at Dell may sell you a disc for the machine that will restore the factory image, just ask. I got new ones from HP for $10.72 total incl postage! 3 to 5 days, what a deal!
Any decent tech should be able to reinstall everything you need for less that $50.00, but you will lose all data on the drive. Who else knows or remembers the login?

You need to do a full reset and restore the tablet to factory settings. It would be wise if you can access anything to save it before you do a restore.

Hi, what make/model of tablet you have?

Often a quick solution to this problem is to simply restore the device to factory settings, however this would mean losing any data stored on the device.

Dell tablet dont go pass the dell sign when i turn it on


Power on the system and immediately press the Power + Security (Ctrl-Alt-Del) buttons simultaneously for a
second. This will allow you to run a diag on the hardware. Do all the tests. If all passes, then you may need to reload the operating system.

You have to restore your iPad to it's original factory settings. Do this by plugging it into the computer that you originally set up your iPad with. Then restore to original factory settings. This will erase all your data but at least you have an iPad.

    Delll latitude xt wont restore to an earlier restore point


    Hi kaliyahsherr,

    I see that your Dell will not restore to an earlier restore point.

    What version of windows do you have on your Dell?

    I believe you already did try to do system restore but it did not work right, does it give you an error unable to restore to the selcted restore point, if that is the error then meaning there is a peroblem with that restoration point that you have selcted have you tried a different restore point?

    If you did then most probably the system restore program on your windows is having issue restoring the system to any date that you may have on your system restore. if this is the case then the only option would be reinstalling windows starting from scratch.

    There is another way to do System Restore on your computer but this is only known to work with Windows XP, I haven't tried with Vista nor Win7 yet.

    we do a System Restore in the Command Prompt, see steps below.

    > From shut down turn your Computer back on then keep on tapping F8 to select and boot into Safemode in Command Prompt.

    > Once in the Command Prompt on the blinking cursor you should type in \windows\system32\restore\rstrui.exe after typing this in it should look like this C:\windows\system32\restore\rstrui.exe, then press Enter.

    > After pressing Enter this should show you a list of dates for the restore points highlight a data and time when you want to do the system restore and see if it will work outside windows.

    > If this does not work then there is something wrong with Windows and needs to be reinstalled for the fix on your concern.

    I hope that this information can be helpful regarding your concern.

    Have a nice day,

    First I would attempt to kill all the viruses with a very good tool called Malware bytes. It kills all of the above. Update the definitions file before you use it. Reboot after scan and run again to ensure cleanliness.

    If you still want to wipe it out, you can obtain a microsoft reinstallation disk from Toshiba by providing your product key to them.
