Usually you just put the first backup disk in the CD/DVD drive and restart/reboot the computer.
If it does'nt boot up you have to go in to the bios settings and change the boot sequence so that it boots from the CD/DVD rom instead of the Hard Drive. When it's finished the restore task you can either leave the bios settings as they are, or change it back to boot from the Hard Drive. Sometimes the backup/restore disks will put the PC back to the same as the day you bought it, which means completely wiping the Hard Drive and reloading the Operating System (Windows) and any programs that where installed at the time the disks were made. If you can run the backup/recovery from within Windows there will be a program in the Programs list on the Start menu. That way you usually keep anything that you have added since you bought the PC and it just reinstalls the Operating System to restore it back to it's original condition.

Hope this helps.

I have no more gb on my pc. I want to format it. But I don't know that after that I have to reinstal window, I don't have the cd-r . I bought my pc with windows included. May You help me,...

1. Make a backup of all your "data" files & E-mail messages & E-mail address-book, by burning a few CD-writable disks.

2. Buy an external disk-storage device, and make another backup copy.
Now that your files are on two other locations (CD-R disks and this device),
you can delete the files from your computer, to free-up some disk-space.

3. Click Start.
Click All Programs
Click Accessories
Click System Tools
Click Disk Cleanup
Run it, to delete unnecessary files.

4. Look for a program on your computer that will "burn" a set of "System Restore" CD-disks.
Run it, to create a copy of those "missing" disks.

5. Telephone Samsung, and order a set of "System Restore" CD-disks.
Use those disks to reinstall Windows.

Dell Inspiron 6000 PC Notebook System 32 Corrupted. It didn't come with a recovery disk so I tried to use my desk top Windows XP Home Edition to recover but it didn't work. When I start up the laptop it...

whenever i format one of my computers, when it gets to the point where you format, i format once with the normal ntfs and then right after it finishes i turn it off by holding down the power button until it shuts and then when i get back to the point where it asks about formatting again i do ntfs quick. i do all this because i had the same problem before and this is how i got past it. now the drivers. did you go to dell and download all of the drivers for your computer? whenver you format you need to get all the drivers again. i will usually use another compter to get the wireless network driver first if it has it so i can install that and then put it on a flash drive or something to get it on the other computer and install that so i can download the rest after that

Can't restore factory intallations and settings: Vaio VGN-FE880E

Are you doing DESTRUCTIVE recoveries or are you doing NONDESTRUCTIVE recoveries? Try another hard drive in the machine and recover to that. Nondestructive recoveries replace the operating system without destroying the personal data. Its possible the original problem is propagating over to the recovered systems. Do a destructive recovery. Understand any data not backed up will be destroyed. Possible the original problem was a trojan virus.

My OS is correpted it gives blue screen

Im not suprised as alot of recovery disks seems to be a fail. If you call up HP theyll most likely send u a free set of recovery disks if you push them enough. The HP recovery disks issues are actually a generic disk to recover different DV models so theres more likely a chance that it will fail too.

Restore backup files

You should have everything saved ("backed up") on dvds now. Your next step is to pop in the restore discs that came with the computer unless you have a vista machine that isn't a toshiba or dell because vista machines (like HP) makes you create your own.

pop in your disc, boot to cd, and press next a few times... it will delete everything and get the pc back to the first day you bought it.
