Hi. I provided you a link where to download the restore disk. Once you have downloaded the restore disk, here's the instruction on how to use the disk.


  • Backup all the data you want to keep on an external hard drive, flash drive, or rewritable CD. Resetting your Dell to factory defaults will erase all data currently on your computer.

  • 2

    Insert the Recovery CD into your CD-ROM.

  • 3

    Reboot your computer.

  • 4

    Watch the text in DOS carefully. When prompted to boot from your CD, do so.

  • 5

    Choose System Restore and then follow the instructions presented. Once system recovery beings, it may take a few minutes. Once it's done, your system will reboot again.

  • 6

    Remove the Recovery CD from your CD-ROM and store it carefully. Your system has been reset to the factory default.

    My dell latitude D610 laptop keeps blue screening after selecitng the operating system (has 2 downloads of windows XP) and the stop code is "0x0000000A (0x00000002, 0x00000001, 0x804E7A0A)

    Windows XP at this point is very buggy due to lack of support
    Try to access your unit in safe mode and see if it works
    when powering on press constantly F8 then select safe mode
    if you are able to get in - try to save your information
    if unable to get in and still getting a blue screen it could be either a system failure or hardware failure

    This happens to old computers after time. Start your computer up several times, and if you still get a blue screen, try formatting your hard drive.

    The system is not booting to the hard drive, the #9 indicator is an indication that the number lock is enabled.
    Try holding the Fn key while powering on the system, see if diagnostics run (The works on newer Dells, not sure about the D610) If you don't have that function, if you have the resource cd, try and boot to it and run diagnostics.
    Generally, the issue you describe is a problem with the hard drive, if it passes diagnostics, then see if you can repair the windows install booting to the XP Cd

    Pressand hold the key while powering the system on. This will run theDell Diagnostics. Another more intense diagnostic program is located on a DellCD that you should have received with your laptop. Look for one that has "Diagnostics and utilities" listed underthe "Contents". You will have to boot from that CD disk. To do this, power onyour laptop and tap the key to bring you to the "One time bootmenu". Insert the CD and then select CD/DVD drive and hit key. Select the "Run the 32 Bit DellDiagnostics". If the laptop runs the diagnostics without errors then you have a software issue. If it is a hardware issue (i.e. memory,hard drive) diagnostics will indicate faulty component.

    How can i get sound drives for dell laptop latitude D610 using window 7 os.

    Unfortunately this computer is not windows 7 compatible, this means that sony is not gonna issue drivers for the laptop base on win7, however the os can be installed and you try using the drivers for windows xp, it is not sure but probably win7 would take those drivers.
    give it a try it has worked for me, i include the xp drivers download link
