I want 2 reset my entire dell d630 laptop How do I do this I don't have any of the passwords


Hey,

I hope when you say that you wish to reset the system you mean you need to go to the factory settings. If you wish to go to the factory settings and even if you do not remember the password, there is still a way to do it. But in order to do it you need to have the OS disc from Dell. You have one, you can perform the following steps. It works for Vista:

HOW TO RESTORE DELL LAPTOP TO FACTORY SETTINGS USING DELL OPERATING SYSTEM WINDOWS VISTA DVD
1. Insert the Dell Windows Vista DVD into the DVD drive, and then restart the computer. 2. During the startup process, repeatedly press <F12>. 3. In the Boot Device Menu, press the <Down Arrow> to select *Onboard or USB CD-ROM Drive, and then press <Enter>. If the Boot Device Menu does not appear, restart the computer. (You might not get Onboard or USB CD-rom Drive in that case if you get any option that says anything about CD or DVD, select that option) 4. When the Press any key to boot from CD or DVD screen appears, immediately press any key to start the computer from the Windows Vista DVD. For example, immediately press the <Spacebar> when the Press any key to boot from CD or DVD screen appears. If you do not press a key immediately, the computer may not start from the Windows Vista DVD to do image restore. Instead, the computer may try to start the currently-installed copy of Windows Vista operating system. If this situation occurs, restart the computer, and then repeat steps 2 and 3.
5. When Windows Vista starts from the Windows Vista DVD, other screens may appear during the startup process. If other screens appear, accept the default options, and then continue to the language settings screen.
6. On the language settings screen, click the appropriate language in the Language to install list, click the appropriate time and currency format in the Time and currency format list, click the appropriate keyboard layout to use in the Keyboard or input method list, and then click Next. 7. On the lower-left corner of the Install now screen, click Repair your computer.
8. If the Windows Vista Setup program detects any problems on the computer, click No when the program displays the following message:
Windows found problems with your computer's startup options.
Do you want to apply repairs and restart your computer? 9. In the System Recovery Options window, under Operating System, click Windows Vista (TM) Version, even if this entry is already selected, and then click Next to display the Choose a recovery tool window. 10. Click on Command Prompt 11. Type path d:\windows;d:\windows\system32 and press <ENTER> key 12. Type d: and press <ENTER> key 13. Type cd tools and press <ENTER> key 14. Type PCRestore and press the <ENTER> key and Dell Factory Image Restore window will appear 15. Click on Next and Confirm Data Deletion dialog will appear 16.Place a check mark beside "Yes, reformat hard drive and restore system software to factory condition" for the final confirmation & click on Next when ready The restoration process takes approximately 10 to 15 minutes; the format bar will run back and forth (See Image 17. Click Finish to reboot system

Blank desktop with only My Documents window at start up.


Something is definately wrong with your OS.

It's possible that you got a virus and something is messing with your explorer.exe file. In fact the easiest solution would be to repair your windows Vista installation or to install again your OS.

Or you can try to find out how to clean it... will take more time but hey, could be fun. I would do that, but it all depends on your skills.

So i would start with a good cleaning of all temp folders and use Hijackthis to remove any process that can be a threat. Be carefull though, removing something important could result in even worst effect than the one you have. Remove also all software that you are not sure where they come from. Remove also all toolbars (google toolbar, yahoo toolbar etc.) and meteo and news stuff that would appear on your desktop.

I dont know Vista enough to help you step by step but overall that's what i would do.

Good luck!

Blank screen, can only start programms by task manager


Try to boot Vista into Safe Mode. Tap the F8 Key right after you turn on the computer until you get the Advanced Boot Up Menu
and use the keyboard arrow keys to select Safe Mode. The next screen may ask you to select your operating systm. Select Vista, not the Recovery Console.

Does your task bar and icons appear in safe mode? If so, it might be one of your start up programs that is failing and causing explorer.exe to fail during normal boot-up into Windows and not allowing your taskbar and icons to appear. Click Start and type in msconfig and hit enter then click the Start Up tab and look at all the programs that start up when Vista is starting up. Do Not uncheck anything in the list that you do not recognize as you may uncheck drivers or Vista starting programs that you computer needs to start up Vista properly. Google anything you don't recognize and uncheck any Start Up programs you do not need to start when Vista boots up, like Quicktime player or Adobe Reader for example. (This would also help your boot up time into Vista)

Sounds like explorer.exe crashed. Try opening up the Task Manager again, and Click File > New Task and type in explorer.exe. See if the task bar and your desktop icons appear.

If they appear for a brief moment then disappear again, the Windows explorer.exe is corrupted. Explorer.exe will try to start and then fail again. You may need to use System Restore to bring your computer back to a date and time when the computer was working properly, before the Vista update.
