I suggest you re-do the full PC as per my adivse....

first u must make a backup of your critical data if u have any on ur pc on DVD disks....DONT use pendrive...
if ur laptop is in working condition u can do the following in this laptop itself....else u may have to use another PC....
1st go to my shared drive (link below) and download this application....
http://www.4shared.com/file/gTU7Zdj3/boot-cd-iso.html

this is a rar file, unzip this file with winrar....the folder that winzip will create will have a self burn software called "ISO-Burner"

insert a blank CD in the drive (i guess ur laptop has a CD/DVD writer) else u will need another PC to write a CD....

click on the ISO-Burner, it's a self create burn application...it will create a bootable CD with the needed applications....

to wipe ur disk....clean...

.... u must ensure that the CD drive is the 1st boot drive in BIOS ( i guess u know how to do it)
keep the boot cd in the CD drive...switch off and switch on again...and let it boot from the CD....wait...wait...
it will boot and load an application that will have some tools to make the disk factory fit....
select application KILLDISK...on the left panel...select F10 to wipe your disk clean....type in ..."erase-my-data"....and wait...wait...
the process will take aprox 5 hrs for a 100 gb disk....wait and have patience....so if you HD is 200 gb it will be more than 11 hrs to finish....
once done you can replace the cd with the WinXP disk, restart...make partitions, format and create different drives as per you needs and make you machine as good as new...
for more info on how to format and use WinXP pls visit my site
www.sureshayyar.110mb.com

pls revert back and leave a feedback and rating for the solution....it will help me become a "Guru" here on Fixya....
all the best
regards....

I have a dell 1501 inspirion laptop how to i re boot it to factory settings i did it once but don't remember how


If you want to get it back to the original settings without the latest patches, turn on the computer and hit <Ctrl> and <F11> together when the blue bar displays with www.dell.com during the boot sequence. If you miss the timing, let the computer boot-up then shut down again and retry. This will restore from a compressed partition on your hard drive. Thus anything you have added (programs/files) will disappear. Do not power down during the Restore sequence or you could end up with an unusable machine.

Use the Windows System Restore if you just have a bad driver.

I hope this helps.

Hi,
Do you have Dell Recovery Disk?, they usually come when you buy the laptop.

If you do:
Inset Disk 1 into the drive and Restart your computer.

Follow the on-screen instructions and you will be asked to insert Disk 2. Do so and wait till everything has finished installing.

If you don't have the Recovery Disk then you need to get them from the Dell.com site.


Please Rate. Thanks

Restoring factory settings on Dell 1501


You can run a system repair with the recovery or operating system disc to get it back to the factory settings. A repair will reset the system, and leave any of your files, pics, and programs that you've put into the machine. If you want to clear everything, and go back to the factory settings, then reformat the hard drive and install a new operating system.
