Hard disk sector problems


Yes, and maybe.

How's that for a clear, concise answer?

When using the Restoration Disk, or a fresh new Installation Disk; if there are bad sectors you will be advised that CHKDSK, is about to run. (Or instructed to use CHecKDiSK, and how)

CHKDSK will then see if there are good sectors that it can move info over to, OR; you will be advised that you have an irreparable hard disk. (Harddrive)

Reformatting is using the Restoration Disk, or Full Installation disk; and when asked choose Full Install.
(Destructive Installation)

Do NOT click on Format in ANY other way.

USE the Restoration Disk, or Full Installation disk.

(Otherwise you will wipe the harddrive clean, and you do NOT want to do this)

You cannot use the restore disks from those other systems to do a restore. Even though you may be able to extract the XP install files, you won't be able to authenticate it because the disk is OEM and reads data off of the system it is supposed to install on.

If you have an emachine, contact them for the restore disk, or search the internet for a restore disk for your model. Some people sell them, even on ebay.

You are going to have to repair the Windows installation. If the boot up screen has an option to repair (some systems like Dell and HP provide an hidden partition with the software to allow you to restore the system), use that to repair the installation. If it does not, you will need the Windows disk or system restore disks to fix the installation.

If using a Windows disk, skip the first repair option and do an install. DO NOT FORMAT THE HARD DISK! During the install it will say it found a previous installation and ask if you want to repair, choose the repair option at this time. Using this method, all your applications should remain installed and working. You will need to run Windows Update till it is fully updated.

If using System Restore disks, follow the on screen prompts

I want to restore my Acer Aspire M1100 desktop computer back to factory settings. I have the disks from Acer, one is a System Disk and one is a Recovery Disk. Is there any way to restore/reinstall Vista...


Hello,

If you used the restore disk on your computer it will erase all files, and all your programs. the restore Factory settings means "ALL" settings the time you created the CD for the restore.

If you have an individual Vista Installer CD with the Serial you can use it and use restore option.

Thank you for using Fixya
Hope this helps.

Restoring averatec 3150 laptop to factory setings


With no disk you cannot restore your computer to a factory settings, at least that your computer has a second disk with the restore settings installed on it (usually this disk is called restored)

Need a destructive restore...?


If you are going to restore with the disks, all the OS updates and programs you have installed will be discarded and you will end up with a disk full of junk.
Also, I had one of those dells a few months ago. If you just want to do a clean install, backup your data and re-install the OS (windows, I guess), but before you do that, go to Dell's site, and download the drivers for your OS. I believe there isn't anything absolutely necessary you can not get there.
