Re: Restore to previous settings
Hi Tangeeh, you can use windows system restore. Click the start button, slide to all programs & slide up to Accessories, than slide down to System tools & click System Restore.
Pick a date backwards when you know your PC ran better. Tangeeh what I think you realy need to do is clean your notebook. This will increase the notebooks overall peformance. Click the link I have posted to install a free program called RegCure. http://www.pctuneuptips.com/recommends/clean/?gclid=CL2RiIrTmpICFSFMGgodODIPzg

What OS are you running? For XP and Win2000, get the OS install or upgrade disc for your version of Windows. Boot from the CD. (F12 just after the POST will let you choose the boot location. Try again if you miss the timing.)
Enter the recovery console and try to restore the old registry. See http://support.microsoft.com/kb/307545 for the XP commands involved.
Windows 7 install discs also have some recovery options when you boot from the CD/DVD as a LiveCD. But it is called the System Recovery (you can build your own System Repair disc with a working version) See the following for more information: http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/668-system-recovery-options.html and then System Restore: http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/700-system-restore.html Vista has something similar but didn't have an option for building a System Repair disc to my knowledge.
You might lose some registry information (depending on how often you had the system backup the critical information). These methods basically roll back to a previous version.
Press F8 after you restart( before the Windows screen). And choose Last good configuration. If it does not work Repeat in Safe Mode and try to restore to a previous Restore point.
If nothing works you might have to reinstall Th OS.
Hope it helps.
Rate the solution if it solves your problem.
I would suggest using the Windows Disk, if you have one, go through normal windows installation. At the point of installation just after pressing F8 it will detect windows exists and offer you a repair option press R to repair
What operating system you are using before installing windows xp.
If it is windows 98, Your restore cd will restore windows 98.
if you want to restore to factory settings pls boot from the restore cd and format the harddisk. Becareful, this will erase your entire data on the harddisk which cannot be recover.
If you are using licenced (not pirated) windows xp boot from it and reinstall windows xp so that you can run the os smoothly.
But in either case becarefull when you are formating, it will destroy entire data and you may endup in soup.
