Go to the start menu and click accessories, system tools, disk cleanup. Make sure that all boxes are checked so you can get the most free disk space. After you perform disk cleanup,
defragment your hard drive. This will organize all of your computer files and folders.

System restore does not work vista


System Restore does not work? Why not? What type of message are you getting?

Were there any Restore Points created?

Are we talking System Restore or System Recovery (to factory settings)?

System Restore works within the windows environment and does not cause you to lose any data. You get it started by clicking Start/Programs/Accessories/System Tools/System Restore and then select a Restore Point (date and time) before you started having problems. It does not delete any of your data, documents, music, pictures, videos or programs (unless the program was installed after the restore point you selected).

System Recovery on the other had deletes everything. It sets your system back to the point when your first purchased it. Most times you need to read the manual on how to get the Recovery started. Hopefully you have a Recovery Partition on your hard drive that was setup by the manufacturer because trying to recover from disks that you created don't work most times.

I want to take my dimention 3000 back to factory settings?


Hello,
First, if the computer has the restore partition, you should see a blue bar at the top of the screen immediately following completion of POST. After two seconds you should see a message about loading the descriptor for PBR2. If you don't see these things after you start or restart the computer, the restore function is not operational. If you do see them you need to restart the computer, press CTRL and F11 toward the end of POST, and release both keys simultaneously before you see the message about the descriptor for PBR2. If you are successful you will get a screen that has an option to restore the computer to factory configuration.
If you don't see the blue bar, try using Disk Management to see how many partitions you can find. If the partition exists, you should find three. First, a utility partition formatted in FAT-16 about 32 MB in size. Second should be the NTFS partition used for the C drive; this one will be the largest partition on the drive. Third should be a FAT-32 partition of two to three Gigabytes in size. This last is the restore partition. If you wish you can try to fix it, but you will need to study Dan Goodell's page found here: Inside the Dell PC Restore Partition.
If you don't have the restore partition and can't fix it, the only thing you can do is find the CDs that should have been shipped with the computer and restore the system manually. If you don't have the Dell Windows Reinstallation CD, you can ask for one here: Dell Replacement Disks. If you don't live in the U.S. you will need to contact Dell Tech Support for your region and request the CDs.
Hope this helps!

Try cleaning the lens that sits on top of the laser - use something like
http://www.amazon.co.uk/Hama-DVD-Laser-Cleaning-Disc/dp/B00005UPDF
If that doesn't work then the laser has died, and the entire unit with it - it happens. Time for a new one, it's just $30 at every pc shop.

Rebooting windows vista back to when i first got without a disc


You might try system restore option and restore it to a date you know it worked well
1.
Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, and then click System Restore.
2.
On the Welcome screen, click Restore my computer to an earlier time, and then click Next.
3.
On the Select a Restore Point page, select the date from the calendar that shows the point you'd like to restore to, as shown in Figure 2, and then click Next.

Figure 2
4.
On the Confirm Restore Point Selection page, verify that the correct restore point is chosen, and then close any open programs.
5.
Click Next if you are ready to proceed or click Back to change the restore point.
6.
The computer will shut down automatically and reboot. On reboot, you'll see the Restoration Complete page, and then click OK.

After reviewing the stability of your system, you can choose another restore point or undo this restoration. Just open System Restore and make the appropriate choice. After you use System Restore, you'll have an additional task, Undo my last restoration, on the System Restore Welcome page. Remember that you'll have to reinstall any programs that were installed after the restore point.
If System Restore doesn't work in Normal Mode, it might work in Safe Mode. To use System Restore in Safe Mode, press the F8 key during reboot and choose Safe Mode. When your computer starts in either Safe Mode or Normal Mode, System Restore can be used to capture a working previous state. System Restore can't be opened unless the system is bootable into one of these modes.

If you are running Windows XP do a system restore. But BEWARE. You will lose everything you have installed since you started operating.
