My inspiron 1018 won't boot. i need to reinstall or repair my software. it does not have a cd drive. please advice action.


The Dell Inspiron Mini 10 series of netbooks come with recovery software that can restore your netbook's original factory settings. Dell Inspiron Mini 10 netbooks with Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7 can be recovered to the factory settings using a recovery partition on the hard drive.
Windows Vista or 7
Turn on or restart your Dell Inspiron Mini 10 netbook. Press the "F8" key repeatedly when the "Dell" logo appears on the screen to be redirected to the "Advanced Boot Options" menu.
Highlight "Repair Your Computer," and then press "Enter."
Highlight the language layout you want to use for your keyboard and click "Next." Enter your username and password if prompted. Click "OK."
Click "Dell Factory Image Restore," and then click "Next." The recovery software on some Dell Mini systems may require you to click "Dell Factory Tools" followed by "Dell Factory Image Restore" and "Next."
Click "Next" if you understand the netbook will be restored to its original factory settings. The recovery process will begin.
Click "Finish" when a message appears saying the recovery is complete. The netbook will restart and boot up to the Windows Vista or Windows 7 set-up screen, where you can begin personalizing your netbook.

Windows XP Recovery
Turn on the computer. Press the "Ctrl" and "F11" keys at the same time while the computer is booting up to access the recovery software.
Click "Restore."
Click "Confirm" to begin the recovery process, which shouldn't take longer than 10 minutes.
Click "Finish" to restart the computer and finalize the installation. Click "Yes" to restart the netbook again. The computer will boot up to the Windows XP setup screen


Here is a link which will take you to the site which will allow you to download a ZIP file with a WEB PAGE type service manual for your 1018, after a 45 second wait. (They want you to sign up for premium service but NOT NEEDED) Click again after wait?
After download, open the ZIP file and copy all contents to a new folder. Double click the Contents.html file to open in a web browser, then use the built in shortcuts to navigate the manual.

My dell inspiron 1520 says ntldr is missing at startup and I'd like to know how to perform a system restore to factory default


Hi shylton45,

Welcome to FixYa! How are you doing?

You did not specify the operating system you are using, whether Windows XP, Vista, or Windows 7.

1. If your operating system is Windows XP, press CTRL and F11 key simultaneously when you see the dell logo after turning on the Laptop and follow the screen instructions.

  • Power the computer on.
  • When the Dell screen appears press and hold the CTRL and F11 key simultaneously on the keyboard, then release them both at the same time.
  • The Dell PC Restore by Symantec window appears.
  • Click the Restore button or press the Arrow key to highlight Restore and press the Enter key.
  • A caution message appears advising that all data will be lost.
  • Click the Confirm button or press the Arrow key to highlight Confirm and press the Enter key.
  • The Progress window appears. Once the process is begun, Dell PC Restore usually takes only 8 to 10 minutes to complete.
  • When the restore is complete, the message The system recovery process was successful appears.
  • Click the Finish button or press the Arrow key to highlight Finish and press the Enter key.
  • The computer will restart.

2. If your operating system is VISTA or Win 7, tap F8 key when you see the dell logo. It will take you to advanced boot menu options under which you will see Repair your Computer, Select that option and enter your password if it asked, then you will be seeing list of options like system restore, command promt, etc., In that the last option says Dell PC restore or some thing like that. Select that option and follow the screens .. Thats it.

  • Start the computer.
  • As the computer starts, press the F8 key until the Advanced Boot Options menu appears on the screen.
  • Press the Down Arrow to select Repair Your Computer on the Advanced Boot Options menu, and then press Enter.
  • Specify the language settings that you want, and then click Next.
  • Log in as a user who has administrative credentials, and then click OK.
  • Click Dell Factory Image Restore.
  • In the Dell Factory Image Restore window, click Next.
  • Click to select the check box for Yes, reformat hard drive and restore system software to factory condition.
  • Click Next. The computer is restored to the default factory configuration.
  • When the restore operation is completed, click Finish to restart the computer.

3. If in both case, the Factory default didn't work, then your laptop's factory image defaults partition have vanished (i.e. Corrupted / Deleted). So you have to do Operating System re installation with the Operating System CD / DVD shipped along with laptop.


Hope that helps. Thank you for using FixYa.

Hi, Restore the Computer to the Default Factory Configuration

Notice:
When you restore the computer to the default factory configuration, all data on the C drive is deleted. Before performing this procedure, back up personal files. If you do not back up personal files, the data is lost.
  • 1. Restart the computer. To do this, click Start, click the arrow next to the Lock button, and then click Restart.
  • 2. As the computer restarts, press the F8 key until the Advanced Boot Options menu appears on the screen.


Note:
You must press F8 before the Windows logo appears on the screen. If you press F8 after the Windows logo appears, the Advanced Boot Options menu does not appear on the screen. If you do not see the Advanced Boot Options menu, restart the computer, and then repeat this step until you see the menu on the screen.

Good Luck (please don't post in all CAPITAL LETTERS next time)

How do I restore factory settings on my dell inspiron mini 1012?


  1. Restoring a Dell System Running Windows XP.

    Turn off and reboot your computer. When you see the Windows flash screen, depress "CTRL" and "F11". Be sure to press them simultaneously and release them simultaneously.

    Select "Restore" in the "Dell PC to restore by Symantec" window and press "Enter".

    Highlight and select "Confirm" when the message shows that you wiill lose all data if you continue. This will begin the restore process. It usually takes about 10 minutes or so. When it's done, you should receive a message that states the system recovery process was successful.

    Select "Finish" to complete the process and restart your system.
  2. Step 6 Restore a Dell System Running Windows Vista

    Shutdown and restart your computer. Keep pressing "F8" until you see the "Advanced Boot Options" menu. You must depress the keys before the Windows Logo screen appears. If you wait until after the screen appears and then press "F8", it's too late and you'll have to reboot the system and try again.

    Navigate to the "Repair your computer" option

    Select the appropriate language and click "Next".

    Sign onto the system as an administrator. Without administrative privileges, you will be unable to perform the system restore.

    Select "Dell Factory Image Restore" and click "Next".

    Place a check in the check box next to the text that says "Yes, reformat hard drive and restore System Software to factory condition" and click "Next".

    Click "Finish" to complete the process. This will reboot your computer.
