How do i recovery acer aspire 5672WLMI laptop back to factory settings? I try <alt> and <F10> method but it only sends me to a black screen with gray writing and has nothing to do with rec


Shut the computer off and then power it up again. As it is starting press the shift button and F10 and hold. You should get a warning that you are about to reset your computer select yes.

Keep in mind that once it does the reset all previous windows updates will be lost and need to be down loaded and installed through windows update again. Windows XP is no longer supported so not sure if all XP updates are still available.

My dell optiplex gx 260 has a blank screen when I turn it on. The windows xp professional screen comes up then when it goes to where the desktop should show up all I get is a gray screen


1. From reading your issue it seems the video card is defective.
2. If you have received the Windows XP splash screen and then the monitor displays a gray screen then only two things have happened here your drivers are corrupt for the video card or the video card itself has failed.
3. Suggestion: install a new video card compatible with Windows XP.
4. Most Dell Optiplex desktops have the video graphics card integrated to the the mother board.

Blue screen error appearing while installing Windows XP. I cant install windows xp. plz help me. I want to install windows xp.


format the drive in which you have XP before , then install a fresh copy of XP

then when XP's finished first of all Update your drivers first.

Find out what graphic/video card you have.

Start Menu > Run > Dxdiag > Go to the Display Tab >
It should say the Name of the Graphic/Video card.

After you find out the name just google the card and find the drivers.

Install it and see how it works. good luck do vote

Mega+2 Pictures Grayed Out (can't be selected for download)


With Windows 2000/XP operating system no Camera software is needed.
If you can switch back to XP and leave the camera software out - Windows can do it all by its self.

If you are still in 98 and it is USB able then this same may be true {I have forgotten] The idea is that camera software general is a bit naff or worst an absolute hindrance.
Plugging a camera into a USB socket is the same as plugging in an external drive
That is what in fact the computer sees
