System recovery i want to do a full advanced system recovery for a friend of mine on her dell inspirion 600 laptop. she is running windows xp and when I do a restart it will not give me the option to do a system recovery. her mouse will not work either. she just wants me to wipe her hard drive clean, so how do i access the system recovery to wipe the hard driver without a working mouse? now i know on my computer i just push F10 and it gives me the option for the advanced system recovery and i dont need a startup disk but i also have a desktop...so will she need a startup disk for her laptop even if she is also running windows xp?

Got Dell Inspiron 2650 2002 from a friend, free. Want to restore to factory settings. How? Installed Windows XP and Norton Anti Virus


Hi and welcome to fixya!

There are two ways to restore this machine to factory settings;

First is thru the Recovdery partition in the hard disk itself:

  • 1 Close any windows currently open and click the Inspiron's "Start" button. Select "Shut Down" and choose the "Restart" option.
  • 2 Tap "F8" when the Dell image appears on the screen. Continue tapping the key until the advanced boot menu loads.
  • 3 Scroll down to "Repair Your Computer" and press "Enter" to access the DataSafe local backup screen. Click "Next." Select "Dell Factory Image Recovery and DataSafe options."
  • 4 Click the "Restore without preserving new or changed files" radio button and click "Next." Click "Next" three more times and click "Restart" to restore the disk drive to its original condition. Follow the on-screen prompts to set your operating system settings.

If the hdd was already repartitioned or corrupted, the second option should work:

  • 1 Insert the Dell recovery disk in your Inspiron's optical drive and close the "AutoPlay" window when it appears. Shut down any other open programs. Click "Start" and select "Restart."
  • 2 Tap "F2" as soon as the Dell image appears on the laptop's screen. Scroll to the "CD-ROM" option and press "Enter." Tap any key when you see the "Press any key to boot" option.
  • 3 Press "Enter" when the setup screen appears. Press "F8" and highlight the Dell's hard drive partition. Press "Enter."
  • 4 Follow the instructions on the screen to choose the Inspiron's operating system options. Click "Finish" and remove the recovery disk from the optical drive. Click "Start" and select "Restart."
Hope this helps!

- Select Fix your Computer and press Enter.
- Click Next when you get to the keyboard/language page.
- If asked for a password, Type your password when you log in to your desktop.
- System will automatically restore your computer to factory image/settings.

Note: Your files will be deleted when you restore system to factory image.

Hope this helps ^_^

Dell b130 internal system restoration failed


Incase you don't have any thing important on the computer try a factory restore. This will wipe out everthing and make the cmputer like new. To start it power off the laptop. Power it on and hold down ctrl and tap f11 severl times at the Dell logo screen. Try this q couple of times as it may not work the first time. If this does nothing you'll need the os cd (xp cd) tO repair or reinstall windows.

Dell Vostro 1700 won't startup - woman in need of help!!! :'(


Don't choose safe mode.

If you have in the F8 options, a Recovery Console select that and run at the command prompt:

chkdsk /r

That will look for and repair disk errors.

Otherwise, look for and select Restore my computer, from this F8 menu.

Failing that you will need a copy of Vista or XP but if you have a 64bit OS like Vista64 you will need a copy of that.

Let me know what happens. But, I won't be online for much longer so I'll send a message to a friend of mine in Ireland who can help you further since he's in a different time zone.

Dell Inspirion 1000 power short circuit


Good Evening:


Hope that you are wellJ

  • There appears to be a shortage in one of your lines to you computer. But, before you replace anything, try these methods.

  • Shut down the computer.

  • Remove any CDs, DVDs or external storage devices (like USB keys or external hard drives) from the computer, if any are present, then press the power button to turn the computer on.

  • Press and hold the <F8> key as your computer starts. You need to press <F8> before the Windows logo appears.

  • If the Windows logo appears, and the system still fails to boot to Windows, shut down the computer and try again.

  • From the Advanced Boot Options menu, use the arrow keys to highlight Repair Your Computer, then press <ENTER>.

  • Click to select your language, and then click NEXT.

  • Log in as a user with administrative rights, and click OK.

  • From the Choose a recovery tool menu, click Startup Repair .
  • Once completed, click FINISH.
  • Click RESTART.

If I can be of further assistance, please let me know

And, remember; always include the type of Operating System and the type of computer you own, when you submit your questions. It simply makes for much faster solutions.

Have a wonderful weekend.
