I cannot find a new restoring point for my paker bell computer

The restore points in windows are generated automatically, in order to restore your computer to a previous date a valid restore point would need to already exist. You cannot manually assign a restore date.

How can i recovery my system?

Sometimes your computer may experience problems and performance issues, which could interfere with common tasks. However, there is no need to worry because this can all be remedied by restoring your computer to an older date. Restoring your computer will allow it to go back to a previous setting before the date that you experienced the problems at. It is possible to restore your computer from points that are a day old to points that are even a few months old.
1.Click "Start" from your desktop. Open your "Control Panel." Click on "System." This will be near the bottom of the control panel and deals with the security, protection and performance of your computer.
2.Click "System Protection" under the Task menu. The task menu is on the upper left-hand corner of the window.
3.Click "System Restore" on the new window. Choose the recommended restore date, or choose a different date. "Click choose a different restore point." Click "Next" to change the restore point. Choose one of the last five dates shown, or click "Show points older than 5 days."
4.Click "Finish." Your computer will now automatically restart and apply the changes.
I hope you find it very helpful. Thanks.

Having problem with a Blue Screen of death and a chkdsk scheduled at start up


if this has been a recent problem...try restoring the system to a back date.

boot to safe mode by pressing f8 key on initial dell logo on startup.
you can run system restore which will bring the computer back to an earlier time lets say few days back with the help of selecting the date in the calender in the system restore tool.
To go into system restore tool click on start select accessories and the system tools and then system restore.
Select restore my computer to an earlier time and click the date in the calender box once highlighted hit next and wait till the process completes once completed it will restart the system automatically and will give you a message your computer was restored successfully in case it says not restored then you can select another Bold date i mean a previous date to retry again.

After an HP update the computer did not recognise the lexmark printer

The primary alternative for you is to restore your computer to the date before HP updates were made.

To restore your computer for windows xp users, do the following.

Go to Start->Programs->accessories -> system tools and click system restore.

Make sure that restore my computer to an earlier date, is selected and click next, next select the date before the HP updates took place and then click next and next. Give your computer sometime to restore and restart and check if your lexmark is detected. In case the restore didn't help; grab your lexmark printer cd and reinstall it.

Hope to know how it went.

5 Under, 2. On this list, click a restore point, click to choose a restore time from the list.

6 Click Next >

7 Verify that the desired restore point is listed, then click Next >

8 After the computer restarts, the Restoration Complete page of the System Restore window appears. Click OK

click start> and start typing system restore (in the start search box) and then click on system restore.
everything else from step 3 will remain the same. and you wont see any calender or bold dates, but you will only get the restore points. also click on show me restore points older than 5 days. to get more restore points. then select the restore point and then continue.

if this doesnot work. then post the problem again with the ip address of your computer. to get the ip address call your ISP.

Need registry key to to install printer

Assuming you are running Windows XP, you may be able to repair this issue if you "restore" your computer to an earlier date.

This is a process by which Windows remembers a time when your computer functioned properly, and sets your computer to those settings. Most of the registry problems can be fixed in this manner.

To access Restore feature, click Start and find Programs, then Accessories, then System Tools, then System Restore.

A window should open that asks if you would like to create a restore point, or restore your computer to an earlier date. Choose this later option.

The next screen should show you a calendar. The dates which are bold are dates that you can choose to restore your computer.

You may not fix the problem on the first try; so choose the most recent bold date, and restore. If the printer still will not install, repeat the process with the next older date.

Unfortunately, if this process does not allow you to repair your computer's software, a reinstallation of the operating system may be required.

Good luck....tony

Go to the start button for Windows Vista.

Open up Control Panel. Click on Back Up and Restore Your Computer.

Click on Restore Files.

It will give you a set date to restore your system to. This will uninstall any programs that you installed after that date. You can change the date if you want, but it generally gives you a date that was just before the last program you installed.

If your Messenger was installed before that date, then choose an earlier date.

Start the Restore and DON'T touch your computer until it is finished.

Good luck,
