Question about Acer Aspire 3680 Laptop
I've created restore point 3 weeks ago but I cant go back this date.Calendar in restore wizard allow me to go back only to 1 week.I have Xp windows,my laptop Acer aspire 3620.Thank so for solutions.
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.

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.
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.
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!
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.
