    Thank you for responding to me...First of all I dont even know what an o/s disc is and i know i dont have one....I know i can click on the bold dates but they dont take me back far enough...The first bold date is the 23rd of march,and that is the day the problem happened..I tried to go to a date that is before the 23rd but it wont let me...If I click on the 23rd-28(today) wont i just be restoring the problem that created this?

  1. Right click on "my computer"
  2. left click on "properties"
  3. left click on systems restore
  4. make sure system restore is on.
  5. open help and support
  6. click on system restore
  7. click on a day where there is a restore point. these days are bolder black. If the password to user was deleted they're are no restore points.

Another way is to log in as administrator not under normal log in.
press F8 on boot, select safemode, log in Administrator, no password.

log into to help and support, click on restore system etc.

Make sure you are selecting a date that is
bold ,
some viruses will stop you using the restore function,run anti virus and anti spy ware

then try this:
go to start/run and type in cmd

then type in the black box sfc/scannow,

have your o/s disc ready as this will check all the system files and replace any that has got corrupted, from the o/s disc.

good luck

    yes the problem will still be present.

    the laptop may have a hidden partition that holds all the programs that was on it when first built,when you boot up check the screen for what key you need to hit (sometimes its F11)to go to restore function,if you can do that, it will restore the laptop back to the factory settings but all other data will be lost.



    good luck

    Hello Jennifer

    no, recovering corrupted files from the operating system disc will not lose any of your data

How do you restore back to factory settings for an 2930Z


Few options.

A) Restore Point - Sometimes you can do a simple System Restore. click start/all programs/accessories/system tools/system restore then click back on the calender to the very first restore point for me its the first day of my reformat (done it a few times) so anytime i have a really bad problem and i don't have any backup i go back to this restore point.

B) repair - insert your Operating system cd (windows xp, Vista, etc) and restart or turn on the computer. your cd should automaticly start up first. click the repair function and follow directions.

C) reformat - same as above except you pick install windows.... and follow directions. this is worst case senario if you don't care to lose EVERYTHING.


remember as soon as you open the box and turn computer on make a restore point. BACK UP at least once month EVERYTHING that is important. also a full system back up is awsome if you need to do this agin.

SOund not working on compaq cq40-330tu with win xp sp3


Click Start, right click My Computer, go to Properties, Hardware, Devise Manager. Click on the plus mark, check for any yellow question marks in Sound, video and game controllers. If you see one, right click the device then you can try a number of things. Do not disable the device. Try up-dating the driver if no driver is found try uninstalling the driver and restarting the computer. The computer might install the driver after it loads Windows. You can try double clicking or going to properties from the right-click menu. Check the devise status trouble shoot if necessary. The first thing I want you to try is from the properties menu, go to driver, then click Roll Back Driver. If all this don't work go to Start, Help and Support, then System Restore. Restore to an earlier time. Choose a day and month in the calender previous to the day you last remember it working, then click next and follow the instructions. See if that does it, the days available or restore points will be highlighted in th calender.
