Hi jaspa - this is how it works:

To use PC Restore:
1 Turn on the computer.
During the boot process, a blue bar with www.dell.com appears at the top of the screen.
2 Immediately upon seeing the blue bar, press <Ctrl><F11>.
If you do not press <Ctrl><F11> in time, let the computer finish restarting, and then restart the computer again. NOTICE: If you do not want to proceed with PC Restore, click Reboot in the following step. 3 On the next screen that appears, click Restore.
4 On the next screen, click Confirm.
The restore process takes approximately 6–10 minutes to complete.
5 When prompted, click Finish to reboot the computer. NOTE: Do not manually shut down the computer. Click Finish and let the computer completely reboot. 6 When prompted, click Yes.
The computer restarts. Because the computer is restored to its original operating state, the
screens that appear, such as the End User License Agreement, are the same ones that
appeared the first time the computer was turned on.
7 Click Next.
The System Restore screen appears and the computer restarts.
8 After the computer restarts, click OK.
If this solves your problem PLEASE rate this as fixed. If it did not or you had problems, DO NOT RATE YET, just add a comment letting me know what happened and I'll be happy to assist you further. Thanks.

Dell dimension 5150 can not return to factory settings using ctrl f11 error code in recover my computer wizard ec950025. i know nothing about computers


Hi,

Eversince PC Restore has been put to Dell computers, it has been convinient for home users to reset their computers back to factory settings. This error indicates that the factory image settings pre-stored in the hard drive of your computer is corrupted already. What you need to do is to perform manual reinstallation of Windows. Assuming still have the Recovery Disks for your computer, you may follow the steps from this LINK01.

If this computer was shipped before September 28, 1994, you may take advantage of its Lifetime Phone Support from a Dell Technical Representative. You may double check the shipped date of your computer from this LINK02. Prepare your computer's Service Tag number that can be found at the back your desktop on a white sticker with a barcode on it then call 1-877-293-1197.

If you have lost your Recovery Disks, you may request these CDs by calling 1-877-293-1197.



I hope this works for you. Kindly reply for further assistance. Good Luck!


Thanks for using Fixya!

Dell Dimension 5150 desktop will not boot into windows xp home. I disconnected everything except hdd, keyboard and mouse. Same problem...will not boot into windows xp home. Did the recovery console...


Im sure the boot sector is a mess. If the cd wont fix the boot sector you may have to copy all his personal files from dos and restore the computer to factory settings.

Dell 5150 won't load drivers


Hi try going to control panel, system, hard ware and then device manager. If you have any driver issues, your device will be highlighted by a yellow ? With your driver CD in drive, click the + sign and right click the device with the problem, select update driver, follow instructions and select install driver from disk. Hope this helps

Need a reboot disk


Does it have a Microsoft sticker on the case giving you a serial number and product type: 2000, XP Home , XP Pro etc

If it has one then you need to find a buddy with a copy of that software and hope that it is compatible with the version you have on your system.

If not then it is off to the shop for a fresh copy

Reset to factory settings


Get your Recovery CD, and just completely reformat the hard drive, These discs should guide you threw this. If you do not have the Recovery CD's Then you may have to order them from Dell.

PNY memory


Hi

Dell Dimension 5150 supports DDR2 400MHz (PC2-3200) and DDR2 533MHz (PC2-4300) unbuffered SDRAM Memory (DIMM). You may install a total of four DIMMs in capacities of 256MB, 512MB, or 1GB. The maximum memory supported is 4GB.

From your query, I think the obvious question is; What is specification of the PNY DIMM and/or does the PNY DIMM meet the requirements for Dimension 5150?

Check for memory configuration and installation procedures for Dimension 5150 - http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dim5150/en/sm/parts1.htm#wp1364711

The Chipset used on Dimension 5150 is Intel 945G Express. I am not aware of specific compatibility issues regarding the Intel 945G and PNY Memory modules. However, there may really be known issues that I am not aware of.

To proceed, ensure that the PNY Memory is compatible with Dimension 5150. If not, install compatible (memory type, speed, capacity) DIMMs.

Let me know if further help is needed.

Dell usb problems


the only thing i can think of is your usb support in the bios settings which can be accessed by pressing del button while the comp is starting that option should be enabled if that doesnt work i think your keyboard and mouse might need replacing i can't see all usb ports being faulty it's very unlikely jim regards
