Restore my dell inspiron to original factory settings


If you have the Dell Recovery CD for your computer then boot up with this CD and follow the instruction to install the original Windows OS.
If you do not have the Recovery CD then you need to get it from Dell.
You can download the Recovery CD and device drivers from Dell WEB site,the support download page. Make sure you select your model desktop or laptop,better still, type in the Service Tag number, it is printed on the label on thebottom of the laptop and on the back or sides of a desktop. (If the Service Taglabel is missing then go into the BIOS setting and on one of the BIOS pages,the Service Tag number will be displayed). This will open the page where thespecific drivers for your model computer are located. Also make sure you selectthe Windows of the drivers for your Windows operating system. Click on thislink to download the drivers: - http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/index.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen

I can`t start my computer normal. He always gets stuck with a set-up and also does not go on afterwards. How do I come now to my normal start side of Windows?


If you Optiplex immediately goes to strike F2 for set up it is most likely the CMOS battery has failed and needs to be replaced. Once it is replaced you will need to reset the BIOS and save the settings. When you reboot, it should then go back to normal. Here are some videos to help you along. http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=Change+CMOS+battery&aq=f

Our Dell computer speakers work but the sound is not normal voices. It's like the voices are animated


It is possible that a setting on your soundcard has the pitch of the voices higher than normal or an effect is turned on that isnt required. Have you tried plugging the speakers into another source to see if it sounds the same?

My desktop on my lenovo 0769 is turned sideways


That sounds like your video card drivers are set to rotate your screen. If you right click on your desktop away from any icons in the menu you should see the graphics card properties for your NVIDA/INTEL/ATI card depending on what is installed. You will just need to go through those screens to configure the drivers until you see the section for rotating the screen. Just set it back to normal once you locate it and hit apply.

If you do not see anything from a video card manufacture you can try clicking on proprieties in that same menu. You will see a new window called Display Properties and your driver settings could be here. Check the Settings take and the Advanced button if you are having problems finding it. Feel free to link to a screen shot of what you are seeing in the menus if you can not find the rotation settings.

Download the Video driver from Dell's website, Enter your service tag number (which it on a label located on the back of the unit) in the second line on this page. It will bring up the correct driver for your unit.

If you can reach the desktop. Right click on the background and then choose Properties. Then choose the settings tab. Hopefully there is an option to change the orientation.

Hope this helps
