Maybe there is no earlier restore point.. How long has the operating system been installed? What O/S is it? As a test, create a new restore point & see if it's displayed.. And that you can fall back to it. Obviously you are logged in as an 'Administrator' - if not, that would stop you from restoring to an earlier point. Let me know how you get on.. Rgds,

Factory system restore


The System Restore tool built into Microsoft Windows allows you to dial the operating system back to an earlier time without deleting any of your files.
The Dell OptiPlex 755 has a few features that can affect a restoration to your system and get you running again if your system is not behaving as it should.
Use the Dell PC Restore tool is a last resort option, as the operation wipes all the data on your computer and returns it to its original condition.

Click "Start," "All Programs," "Accessories," "System Tools" and "System Restore."
Choose "Restore my computer to an earlier time," then click the most recent date on the calendar in bold print. Select a restore point from the list, then click "Next."

Accept the warning and click "Next." The restore process restarts your computer; check to see that the problem is solved after the computer restarts.
If not, you can restore back further.
Follow the steps again, going to the next most recent restore date, until the problem is resolved.

PC Restore

Power off the computer. Turn on the computer, and while it's booting, hold down "Ctrl" and press "F11" in Windows XP or "F8" in Windows Vista or later.


Click "Restore" then "Confirm" in Windows XP.
In Windows Vista and later, click "Repair your Computer," then "Next." Log in with a username and password.
Click "Dell Factory Image Restore," then "Next."
Confirm that you want to reformat the hard drive, then click "Next."


Click "Finish" when the button appears.
Your computer reboots, with the operating system nowrestored to the same state it was in when the computer was new.

Windows XP freezes half way through Restore program?


Select an earler restore point. If it still doesn't work step back earlier. Somewhere in the restore date history there has to have been a date where the system worked. Remember that the restore process can take some time if a lot of material has to be restored

Recover data from my backup


Which operating system and what data do you need to recover ???
You can create a backup disk with Microsoft Windows 7 or any other version of the operating system.
This disk will contain the files, programs and settings that you chose to save during the backup operation.
Yet, this disk does little good for you if you do not know how to retrieve that backup data.
Luckily, Microsoft offers a simple process for restoring this data to your operating system.
Even a basic computer user should have no problem restoring her backed up data from a backup disk.

Insert your Windows 7 installation DVD into your optical drive.
Reboot your computer and press a key to boot from the disk once prompted.
Click "Repair your computer."
Choose the hard drive that contains your copy of Windows 7.

Click "Windows complete PC restore."
The latest backup data will be selected by default. I
n the event you wish to restore earlier backup data, press "restore from a different backup."
Click "Next."
Your computer will now restore the backup data into Microsoft Windows 7.

No system restore


This is normal. As I said, System Restore does not restore your personal files. So, as you said, you unzipped those files to your desktop. That means the 50 files are your personal files. System Restore typically never touches your personal files, so restoring to the previous day would not have removed the 50 files.

So no worries, your System Restore feature is still working as it should.

Let me know if I need to explain anything in more detail or if I can assist you with something else.

The sound driver is either corrupted or missing


You can try the following and roll back the setting to earlier time:

Click Start Button,
Then select All programs,
then "accessories",
then, "system tools",
then, "system restore",

A utility will start. click Next.
(Please note that it will not cause any harm to your data so dont worry about it.)

after flipping through couple of screens, it will give you an option to roll back the settings to an earlier time.
Select an earlier Bold date (that means a system check point exists) click on a check point and click next.
It will ask you to restart after reload. Allow that.
(The system will be rolled back to the point you selected (select a checkpoint that was earlier than the problem occured)).

you will see that once the system will restart, it has restored the system settings to an earlier time and your problem is resolved.

Will appreciate if you can rate this solution offered to you.


Thanks & Best Regards,
Techno-Geek.
