Re: Restoring the OS on my laptop.
If you have files that you do not wish to lose and cannot do without, then yes, you should definitely back up those filed before you restore your OS. But if you have no files that you really have to save and/or keep, then no, you do not have to save them. Andif you router connection is secure, then yes, it will interfere with it, but I think all you will have to do is reinsert your router passkey. If it is hard wired to your computer via ethernet, or your connection is not secure, then no, you should be able to get right back up and running.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Hi, Looks like the OS is corrupted, but you can restore it by restoring to the previous date, for that you need the OS installation cd. Just insert the cd and wait for few munites to load files, then you will see the restoring option. Hope this helps, thanks for using fixya!
Have you tried F8 and running in safe mode, or doing a Restore system files and settings, it varies from OS to OS, byt if you start in safe more, then look in your windows help file to restore to a previous point
Resetting a consumer desktop/laptop to factory settings is fairly straight-forward. Follow the steps below to reinstall the OS and drivers.
Before beginning, here are the items you will need:
B. Microsoft Windows OS CD/DVD
1. Power on your computer.
2. Insert the Windows OS CD/DVD in to the optical drive.
3. Restart the computer and boot from the CD/DVD when prompted.
4. Follow the installation prompts to complete the install.
5. Once completed, eject the CD/DVD and perform a Windows Update to update the system and any drivers you may be missing.
No, each recovery disc contains an image of the OS and not an individual installer for the OS. Best option is to contact their Tech Support and ask for a Recovery Disc or have them walk you through Restoring to Factory state. Please take note this would lead to your Hard Drive being wiped clean then the OS reinstalled, so you will lose all your files. However if you can still boot to Windows perform the built-in System Restore for Windows. You can do this by clicking on Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore and it will allow you to pick a date on how far back you want to Restore. And the good part for this method is you will not lose your files.
