You will need the three restore cd's the computer came with!
put the 1st of the three restore CD's into the machine. then turn the computer off, wait a sec. and then turn it back on, with the restore disk in the machine. If you had an issue like I did, it wouldn't let me even run anykind of safe mode. I had to system restore off of the disk only. It will tell you that, You will lose everything off of C: drive. you just have to do it, if you want a working computer again. once the cd runs, it will do it all. you will have to sit there and wait to put in the next disk as the program asks. hope this helps others with emachines!

I have the BSOD. i went to safe mode and the list of drivers came up but nothing happened afterwards. Just stay on list


OK try this, when dell screen comes up on keyboard hit CTRL+ F11 twice only then you will see Dell pc restore by Symantec.Hit on restore and hit on i agree and select the option Restore the pc to Dell factory settings and then it will restore the pc
Otherwise, you will have to use a Windows DVD and boot on it. Perform a "Repair" Install. OR if that will not work, reformat and reinstall.

I have a dell inspiron 6000 lap top I cannot


Press and hold the "Ctrl" and "F11" keys simultaneously when the Dell splash screen appears. The "Dell PC Restore by Symantec" window will appear. Click "Restore."
Just make sure you have saved all your data before doing that.

Hi,
You should be able to restore the system from the recovery partition on that model laptop.
Shut down the system. Then start it up. Right after pushing the power button to start it, hold down the CTRL and keep tapping the F11 key(for XP). If you have Vista just tap on F8(no need to hold down CTRL). A symantec recovery application (PC Restore) window will start up. just follow the instructions on the window.


Regards.

Do you have any recovery CDs ??
Try powering up while holding 'F11'

You will likely have a the 'MASTER' installation data in a seperate partition on your harddrive.

Factory Restore


Hi,

Have you tried using another keyboard? if that doesnt work, try hitting the pause/break button on your keyboard and you should notice that your screen will be stuck on the dell logo with the bar going across, once you notice that hold down ctrl and hit f11. that should work..

Let me know what happens, alright?

Follow this process ---> Press and Hold CTRL + F11 by the time you see the blue line that has www.dell.com after the dell splash logo and then it would show up the symantec ghost --> choose restore then follow the rest of the affirmative prompts
