Here's what you can do (for Windows):

1. Prepare all of the restore/installation cd that you have. And check all of them for the kind of operating system, service pack, and version.

2. And on the computer, check the operating system, service pack, and version of the computer by clicking on Start button, select Run, and type in this keyword "winver" short for windows version.

3. A small window will show-up, it contains the windows logo, kind of windows operating system that you have, service pack, and version.

4. Match those information to the restore cd that you have. And look for the right one.

5. Install or Restore the computer that you want to be restored. Enjoy!

Thanks!
Your good rating will be very much appreciated!

I need the dell restore cd but i havent got one only a restore cd from hewlett packard


Restore CD's are generally customized to the specific PC. I hate that too, believe me. You can certainly try it, but there is a good chance it will not work, as the drivers/files on the restore CD for one PC are tailored for the hardware in it. Your best bet is to contact Dell directly for a copy, providing them with your PC information. It may only cost $20-30. The alternative would be to take a CD with only the OS (operating system - e.g. WIndows 7, etc., and use it to reformat and reinstall your system. If you do reformat, however, there is a good chance that you will lose all personal files, documents, pictures, etc., on your PC. If you know a computer geek (friend or family), it may be a good idea to seek their assistance. I've helped mine many times. All the best ~ JD

Gateway laptop reset


Gateway Direct systems went "media-less" back in September 2004. In the event of a system crash users could either 1) restore their systems from the Recovery Partition OR 2) from the backup media that they were prompted to create on first power-up -- which would provide them with up to 5 blank CD-R discs depending on their system's configuration.

On the factory load of the hard drive, the recovery partition will not contain operating system files. It only contains application and driver files.
The first time the recovery partition is used, it prompts the user to insert their System Recovery CD/DVD to copy files from the CD to the recovery partition.
The Drivers and Applications CD is not bootable and does not contain Operating System files.
The System Recovery CD/DVD is bootable but does not contain any application or driver files.
If the end-user erases the hard drive and restores the computer using the System Recovery CD/DVD and an Applications and Drivers CD, the recovery partition is not recreated.

This means that you will need the operating system restore disc FIRST then the recovery partition will work for you

I have a asus Eee pc 701sd and i can,t get the restore disc to work.


If you have configured to boot the system from the restore cd/dvd then it should work,otherwise there's no way to restore the system using that disc.

But if you have ealierly set or create Restore point in your system,then you can easily restore it even if your system fails to boot.

Download Hiren's Boot CD and burn the ISO disc and boot,and you can easily repair or restore the system with your ealier restore point.Below is the link for Hiren's Boot CD.

Need to restore emachine pc to factory defaults without CD


Hi, shanettelee,

Here's what you do, do to http://www.belarc.com, and download their free analysis program. once it's loaded run it, and it will expose the unlock keys for office, as well as the operating system. There are down about mid page. Then you can download the trail version or borrow some eles's cd to reinstall it if the factory defaults aren't on the cd. Also, you can explorer the restore cd and look for offfice files, perhaps they are on the cd.

Good Luck,

Mark

Usb 1 is not very slow, maybe computer system is busy doing some other services which is unknown to you.

if you plan to restore computer back to original state. you should back up first the important files(personal files any files that is important to you.)

system restore is not quite good except , you have an original windows system cd enclosed in your computer. doing this; insert cd and boot the computer using the cd.

If non of those; then you should provide windows cd and reinstall your windows: doing this; insert cd and boot the computer using the cd.

just follow the onscreen instructions.

some drivers of your computer notify me with the brand , model, motherboard details. if in case.
