Your pc probably automatically creates restore points and there is a limit on the space they can take so it automatically starts to remove the old ones.

to my experience system restore in xp was a total peace of ****
takeing up extra space and when used caused more problems than it fixed.

In my honest opinion system restore shouldnt be used.

Step 1:
You might need to reinstall or do a system restore back to when it was working ?
You can use the System Configuration utility to perform a system restore. There are three possible restore points: System checkpoints that Windows schedules Manual restore points that you specify with the System Configuration utility Installation restore points that occur before you install a program or a service you can use the system checkpoints or the installation restore points to restore your computer's settings to a date when it operated correctly. This may also help determine the cause of the configuration error.

To perform a system restore, follow these steps 1.Click Start, click Run, type msconfig, and then click OK. 2.On the General tab, click Launch System Restore. 3.Select Restore my computer to an earlier time, and then click Next. 4.Calendar dates in bold are possible restore points. Click the most recent one to view system restore information. 5.Select a system checkpoint or an installation restore point, and then click Next. 6.Close all other programs. 7.To start the system restore, click Next. 8.Your computer restarts. Repeat steps 1 through 8 until you fix your configuration issue.

System restore XP doesn't go back a month


The system restore will only work if it has a restore point available ..These restore points are the ones that are highlighted on the calendar when the restore service is accessed..If you only have the current month displayed..you can roll back the calendar ..and choose a date which is highlighted..but if you do not have a functional restore point you will not be able to do it ..If the system was recently installed it also will not have a restore point available older than the date it was installed...or the date the system restore was enabled..My advice is to choose a date available ..and restore it anyway if it makes problems ..it is not necessary to restore it to a date so far back ..but to a date when you know it worked well..
If the system was affected by a virus...you have to know that the system restore may brink it back if it has a restore point not affected by the virus..but the problem will still be in the computer and will came back ...so the action is to reinstall it completely or use the recovery disk or partition .

Hi

you could try to do a system restore back to just over a week ago that may do it for you

I dont know you laptop or operating system so try to get to it this way

start
type in
system restore
click on system restore
if the restore date is not just more than a week or so ago
then look down the bottom left of the restore box to see if you can click on
show more restore dates
if so click on it and choose a date that you think all was how you liked it

now do the restore

when you have it as you like it
please create a new restore point and name it something like ( how i like it )
so if you have a problem again you can reconise the restore point and take it back to it again

to do this go to
start
type in
create restore point
name it
then create it
job done

good luck

Restore to factory settings


1. Click on Start, then All Programs, then Accessories, then System Tools, and click on System Restore.

2. Click on the Create a restore point radio button and click Next.

3. Type in a name for the restore point and click Create. Make sure to give a name that makes sense like "Before installing driver" or "Before updating program", etc.

Click Create and you're done! You have now backed up your Windows Registry. So how do you restore the registry? Well there are basically two ways and it depends on whether you can get into Windows or not.
Restore Registry in Windows If you can still get into Windows itself, then you can restore by following the same procedure as above to open System Restore and then clicking on "Restore my computer to an earlier time" and clicking Next.

restorearestorepoint-thumb.png
All the dates in the calendar that are in bold have at least one restore point. Click on a bold date and then click on the restore point in the second box to the right. Note that if you have System Restore turned on and depending on how much space it is allowed to use, Windows will automatically create restore points every day. Those are the ones that show up as "System Checkpoint".
Once you have found the one you want to restore too, click Next and then confirm the restore point selection. The computer will be restored and automatically restarted.
If you CANNOT get into Windows because the registry change was too major and it is now corrupted, you can press F8 when your computer is booting up to get the Advanced Boot Options screen.

advancedbootoptions-thumb.png
You are going to want to choose "Last Known Good Configuration" from the list of options. Last Known basically restores the registry to whatever it was the last time you logged onto your computer. So if you make an update to your computer, restart and Windows does not load, choose Last Known and it will revert back to the state it was in when you were logged in.
It DOES NOT revert back to the last System Restore point you created. In Windows Vista, you can actually go into the System Recovery options and choose a restore to a previous point that you created without needing to log into Windows. Windows XP sadly does not have this option!

systemrecoveryoptions-thumb.png
So if you have Vista, just go to System Recovery Options and choose System Restore. Easy. If you have Windows XP, you need to hope and pray. You can also try to use the Recovery Console to copy the backed up registry file and replace the corrupted one.
Good Luck....

Hp pavilion entertainment sound and mute touchpad stopped working 10 minutes ago


In cases like this it is usually a program or a windows update (if you have updates checked to install automatically) that will cause these processes to stop. The easy way to reverse these problems is to go to the start button > Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore. Open system restore and select restore to an earlier date and time. Look at the calendar that comes up and choose a day or two ago that is in bold, these are the restore dates and times. When you choose a bold date, you will see a list of restore points for that day. If a system check or a program was installed or deleted, a restore point will be made. Choose a system checkpoint and click next. Click OK and the system will reboot, when it reboots it will go back in time to the date you picked. Check your devices for function.

My usb ports dont work


hi dear

Through the All Programs menu:
1.
Click Start.
2.
Point to All Programs.
3.
Point to Accessories.
4.
Point to System Tools.
5.
Click System Restore.
6.
Follow the instructions on the wizard.
Creating a restore point can be useful any time you anticipate making changes to your computer that are risky or might make your computer unstable. If something goes wrong, you select the restore point you just created and Windows XP undoes any system changes made since that time.
Create a Restore Point
1.
Open System Restore. (See step-by-step instructions above.)
2.
Click Create a restore point, and then click Next.
3.
In the Restore point description box, type a name to identify this restore point as seen in Figure 1 below. System Restore automatically adds the date and time that this Restore Point is created.
3201fb4.gif
Figure 1. Creating a restore point
• To finish creating this restore point, click Create.
• To cancel restore point creation and return to the Welcome to System Restore screen, click Back.
• To cancel restore point creation and exit the System Restore Wizard, click Cancel.
To view or to return to this restore point, from the Welcome to System Restore screen of the System Restore Wizard select Restore my computer to an earlier time. Then select the date you created the restore point from the calendar in the Select a Restore Point screen. All of the restore points you created and you computer created on the selected date are listed by name in the list box to the right of the calendar.
Note System Restore does not replace the process of uninstalling a program. To completely remove the files installed by a program, you must remove the program using Add or Remove Programs in Control Panel or the program's own uninstall program. To open Add or Remove Programs, click Start, click Control Panel, and then click Add or Remove Programs.


oke
