Then use your product key to make it legit. If I remember correctly, during installation it will ask you if you want to enter a product key.

  1. Press 1 to restore your hard disk drive to its original factory default state. A confirmation message will appear, indicating that all data will be overwritten and lost during the restore process. Be sure to back up all important files before proceeding.
  2. Click Yes to begin the recovery. A message will appear once the operation is finished, indicating the HDD has been restored.
  3. Press any key to restart the computer.

To restore only the C: drive:
  1. Press 2 to restore only the "C:" drive (the letter C is traditionally used to designate the first volume on the hard disk drive) on your computer. A confirmation message will appear, indicating that all information on the drive will be lost during the recovery process. Be sure to back up all important files before proceeding.
  2. Click Yes to begin the recovery. A message will appear once the operation is finished, indicating that the HDD has been restored.
  3. Press any key to restart the computer.

Restore Image to C: Partition with user specified size
CAUTION:
Resizing and restoring your C: drive to its factory default state formats all partitions on the HDD (for example, if you created a D: drive, it will be deleted during the recovery process) your information will be overwritten, and lost. Be sure to back up all important files first.
To resize and restore your C: drive:
  1. Press 3 at the Toshiba HDD Recovery Utility screen. A confirmation message will appear, indicating that all partitions will be reformatted and all information will be lost during the recovery process. Be sure to back up all important files before proceeding.

      NOTE:
      The size of the C: drive will be displayed on the progress bar as you make your selections.
  3. Click "Enter" to begin the recovery. A message will appear once the operation is finished, indicating that the HDD has been restored.
  4. Press any key to restart the computer.

Cannot get system restore to its original state


You say it's not taking anything off. Just what is it you are trying to do?
System restore will go back to any of a number of restore points if your computer suddenly has problems. It will not remove any files or data. If you have installed a program and do a restore back to before you installed that program, the files will remain but the program will no longer be seen by Windows.
If you want the computer to revert to it's original state, you must do a system recovery or, if this is not an option, you should reinstall Windows.

How do I return our Dimension 5100 Dell Desktop back to it's original state? Lost the recovery CD.


Have you tried restoring your operating system to a previous restore point?
To do this click on start- all programs - accessories - system tools - system restore. Then choose a date from the calendar which corresponds to a time before you began to experience problems on your PC. Follow the on-screen instructions to restore your PC to its original state.
Note that a system restore will remove any programs which were installed AFTER the selected restore point date.
Hope this helps.

If you want to restore the computer to its original state, these instructions are available from the DELL website:
(http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/ins6400/en/om/trouble.htm#wp1064167)

Use Dell PC Restore by Symantec only as the last method to restore your operating system. PC Restore restores your hard drive to the operating state it was in when you purchased the computer. Any programs or files added since you received your computer—including data files—are permanently deleted from the hard drive. Data files include documents, spreadsheets, e-mail messages, digital photos, music files, and so on. If possible, back up all data before using PC Restore.
To use PC Restore:
  1. Turn on the computer.

During the boot process, a blue bar with www.dell.com appears at the top of the screen.
  1. Immediately upon seeing the blue bar, press <Ctrl><F11>.

If you do not press <Ctrl><F11> in time, let the computer finish starting, and then restart the computer again.

Returning To The Original Operating State


you may find that you have two partitions on your hard drive showing as a seperate drive in my computer, here there is normally a backup of your pc's initial setup.

There should be a wizard somewhere on your programme files to help you with the backup restoration process, but make sure you save anything important to a cdrom before you start as the system will be completely formatted and installed as new.
