It is looking for the windows automated system recovery disk and I have reistallation cd. how would I get this

You will need to create one.

Windows system errors, crashes and other problems may lead to a malfunctioning system or an operating system that doesn't load properly. You can create a Windows system-repair or automated recovery disc that contains tools for fixing the operating system. The CD you create will contain system-recovery options and tools like Windows' Startup Repair, System Restore and the Windows Memory Diagnostic tool.

Insert a CD into the CD/DVD-ROM drive. Click the "Start" button. Type "backup" in the search box and click the "Backup and Restore" search result entry. Select the "Create a System Repair Disc" option in the left column. Click "Yes" or "OK" if a user account control message appears. Click the "Drive" drop-down menu and select the name and letter of your CD/DVD drive. Press the "Create Disc" button. Wait for the progress bar to turn completely green and Windows to finish the repair disc. Click "Close" and then "OK" to exit the repair disc wizard. Hope this helps.

Windows Vista - Click Start/Programs/Accessories/System Tools/System Restore

Windows 7 - Click Start then in the search box type "System Restore" (without the quotes) and the system will show you the link to click above in the search results.

For System Recovery - RTM - Read The Manual

Get onlineand got to In the google search box type: "AcerSupport" (without the quotes and put your manufacturer name before Support). Look for downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operatingsystem when requested. Look for Manuals. Search the manuals for how to start the Recovery.

My computer does not have sound

Check to make sure the speakers are turned on and the volume is turned up. Make sure the speaker cable is plugged into the light green port on the back of the computer.

Check your Audio and Sound properties in the Control Panel. Click Start/Control Panel and look for Audio or Sound. Check the volume to make sure it is turned up and that it is not on mute.

You can click on the megaphone that is at the bottom right near the time and adjust the volume and make sure mute is not on.

Check to make sure the Audio Drivers are install in the Device Manager. Click Start/Control Panel and look for System or System and Performance or System and Security (just depends on your operating system). Find the Device Manager and open it to check and make sure the Audio drivers are install and there is no problem with them.

You can download and install the audio drivers from the manufacturers site.
Get onlineand got to In the google search box type: "DellSupport" (without the quotes and put your manufacturer name before Support). Look for downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operatingsystem when requested. Download and install the Audio drivers.

Im trying to restore mt dell pc..back to factory settings its running vista f8 doesnot work ive only got f2 and f12

F8 is not the key you would press to get into Factory Settings or System Recovery as it is called. F8 gets you into different boot modes such as Safe Mode, or Restoring your last good Boot settings.

The key most manufacturers use to get into Recovery is F11, but to be sure which key to use either tell us the model of your Dell or go look it up yourself by reading the owners manual.

Get onlineand got to In the google search box type: "DellSupport" (without the quotes and put your manufacturer name before Support). Look for downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operatingsystem when requested. Look for Manuals and Documents.Once you find the manuals search through them for Factory Settings or System Recovery. It will tell you which key to hit when you press the power button.

I clicked on the safari application, accidentally dragged the search bar where you type a web address and now its gone.

You could try reinstalling Safari. What operating system are you using?
Also, you could try "Customizing" the bars (right click on the chrome and select Customize). There should be a way to add the search bar back in.

I installed a router, Dlink DIR 655 recently. During the install a trial SecureSpot 2.0 appeared . Somehow it got only my system ( my error) and I dont know of anyway to un-install it. seems it is stopping...

Im not sure where the application is installed but I think its a built in feature of your Router. I dont know exactly where to go but you can try (using a computer plugged in the ethernet) typing "" without inverted commas into the address bar of a web browser. If a password is asked for and you havent changed it. It will be "admin".

After you are in...bwowse to "Parental Control" and "Firewall" and untick the things you dont want to block. Then click save.

Try again. You may need to turn off your computer or modem.

Computer crash/need upgrade

I need more information to properly assess this problem.

What sort of P.C. is this? How old is it? How much R.A.M. (Random Access Memory) do you have? What O.S. (Operating System) are you currently using?

My first "guess" is that this is a lack of R.A.M. Games usually use an awful lot of memory for their graphics functions in their programs.

Today's standard for most computer operations are about 1 G.B. (Gigabyte) of D.D.R. (Double Data Rate) R.A.M. (Random Access Memory)
