Microsoft works My computer was slowly dying. I used my recovery disk and after it loaded, went to the internet to upgrade all my old programs. All is working great now, but I noticed Microsoft Works or Word is not there anymore. Can you tell me what I need to download and from where? Jo Ann

I love that computer lol it was my very 1st one.sorry about that lil happy moment from the past.

you can get it from a shop e.g. pc world but you would have to pay for it or you could try to download it through a p2p e.g. ares or limewire.

but using p2p can be dangerous it may be free but sum programs you download can contain viruses

How to restore to factory settings without disk?


Dell has been including a "factory restore partition" on the hard drive for several years. Your Dimension 8400 should have the Dell PC Recovery software and files on the original drive.

Is the original hard disc installed? Have you ever upgraded the OS from the original XP? If you have not upgraded these two items or changed the partition structure on the drive, then shut down the computer and restart it. When you see the blue bar with www.dell.com, press <Ctrl> and <F11> simultaneously. (The Control (Ctrl) key is usually duplicated on most keyboards on both ends of the row with the space key. F11 is the second to the right among the function keys if they are in a line at the top of the keyboard. Three other keys (and possibly media control keys) will be to the right of the function keys on many keyboards.)

Sometimes it is hard to correctly time this. If you reach the windows boot-up, restart the computer and try again. (I usually have to do this 3-4 times.) Select Restore and then confirm the action on the next screen. Then wait for the program to reformat the C: partition and copy the files from the recovery/restore partition. When the computer restarts, it will display the End User License Agreement and other "start-up" screens for a new computer.

If the hard drive has been changed so that the PC Restore doesn't work, find someone with a copy of your version of Windows (DVD). Note your current license key. Then use a program to reformat the C: partition and reinstall Windows. (You'll lose the Dell extras that came with the computer.) Members of MUGs (Microsoft Users Groups) or Microsoft Technet may have these disks.

I hope this helps.

The disk is corrupted and it interferes with the install process. Just get this
http://gparted.sourceforge.net/
boot from it and format your entire disk to reiserfs then to FAT32 - this way any trace of the old NTFS file system is thoroughly wiped. Now launch the recovery process one more time and it will automatically detect the FAT32 partition and will reformat it to NTFS in the process.

For the first one, you need to enter BIOS and set the HDD settings. Maybe you can automatic detect it once and then the system knew where to load system from. If it can see the hard disk and reads it but no operating system found, then you may need to check the operating system on your hard disk.
For the second one, I do think it is better to upgrade to a upper level OS such as Windows 7. While you have Vista you will have better deal with Windows 7. If you do have a agreement with Microsoft to have newer OS for free in a certain period, you can get Windows 7 for free. If you don't have that agreement, you can get Upgrade version of windows 7 with a huge discount if you have Vista.
You can actually back up your data to an wim file on vista and restore all the data and settings after the upgrading. But be sure to keep a full backup of your hard disk and everything just in case.
You can enter BIOS and make sure booting from CD first. Then there is a key you need to press very early in the booting process to launch the recovery. There is also a factory default restore you can use. Did you call HP to find out what the key is and how to use factory default restoration? You can always plug the hard disk to other computer to back up the data and then restore to factory default and put the data back.

How to make my pc faster


1 . Clean up your desktop icons. Having too many icons on your desktop slows down your computer's operational speed. Consider cleaning them up to keep only what you need on your desktop.

2 . Remove unnecessary start-up entries. These are programs that start when you turn on your computer, and it takes time for them to load. Programs such as lime wire, Msn, and quick time helper are common culprits.

3 . Run a virus-scan. If you do not have any virus protection software, Then you can download it from the internet

4 . Un install any programs you don't use in Control Panel. Trial software and other junk clogs up your computer and makes it run slowly.

5 . Do a registry scan and repair. Using cleaner of your choice, clean and repair the Windows registry to make your computer run smoother.


6 . Conduct an ad-ware scan. Ad-ware is similar to spy ware and is just as bad. You can also download it from the internet

8 . Upgrade your computer's hardware. The most common upgrade is an upgrade in RAM, but you can also upgrade your graphics card or processor to make your computer run faster.

9 . Make sure all your hardware drivers are up to date. Do this by visiting the manufacturer's websites to download the latest versions.

10 . Turn off unnecessary visual effects such as Vista's Aero effect, all of which slow down your system. Skinning programs such as Windows Blinds also slow down your system.

11 . If all else fails, re-format your computer and install windows again to start off will a clean system with no junk.

12 . De fragment your hard-drives. When your hard drive is reading your files, a little head drops onto to a spinning disk to read the information to load a file. If the file is split up between multiple parts of the hard drive, it takes longer to open each file. Thus, De fragmenting frequently will make every-day activity quicker on your computer.

Hope the above information will help you.
Thanks.

hello,
I would try to use the windows backup and recovery feature if it's enabled. restore it to the previous day, also, for the windows system, did you create a backup disk. if so you should be able to reload any pre-existing programs to your system by running a restore from the recovery. without loosing all your personal files. also some will have an option when creating a recovery disk to make an applications recovery disk. If you haven't created these, i would check into this in the future.

The best thing to do is go to the manufacturers website and see if they made a driver for vista.

Actually I just went to the site and they don't offer a vista driver. New scanner for you buddy. that's Microsoft's way of continuing the monopoly. make everybody upgrade to their standards.
