Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Dell latitude d620 all of a sudden started opening the dvd/cdrw drive when I hit the power up button. It then will not go back in and stay latched until the system says there is a problem with the dvd drive and then goes on to say either press it in firmly, power off the laptop and turn it back on OR press esc to ignore. If you press esc to ignore, the system works fine, but the dvd/cd drive is not recognized. What happened?? there is no virus detected as I did a scan to be sure.

How to restore my D620 to factory settings without a CD?

Hello there!

Well its impossible to restore any of todays laptops without their factory os dvd/cd. You could setup new operative system and make your laptop simmilar to what it was on factory settings, or you can search dell to send you that same cd/dvd on your post mail to your house.

I suggest you read and contact them in order to solve your problem. Hope i helped you! =)

How do i restore to factory settings without disk?

I assume you mean factory installation. You need the disks. Unless there is a recovery partition, unlikely on this model. Alternatively you could find an oem windows xp home or professional depending on what coa sticker is on the laptop and install that.
