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 am having problem with this device -Cd Room no Work


Hello,

Is this the first time that you are having this kind of issue?

If the CD rom tray still opens up then you can do a system restore to restore your computer's settings to a known good date.

Click Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore

Select a date when the CD rom was still working . Launch the restoration. Let it restart by itself. Check if it works after the restoration.

If no go, then you might want to install RadarSync to automatically install the updated drivers for your CD ROM.

I hope this helps!

How do i restore my dell dimension c521 to the way


This is done 1 of three ways depending on how your restore information is stored. 1. After you push the power button start pushing the F8 key and when you get the option screen select restore to previous or restore to factory settings. This method works if your system has a special restore partition still. If you received System Restore Disk insert the CD in the CD player and reboot the system. It will boot from the CD and present the Restore menu for you to make a selection from. Your third choice is to select System restore from the system tools sub menu under the Accessories menu in your program list and chose to restore to factory settings.

My computer has a virus, I lost my restore disc. The software to restore the system is on the hard drive. When I boot the system, it sticks in a loop at the user log in. I have the win32.netsky virus.


Hia,

try to boot your computer in safe mode. when computer starts, press F11/F12 key to get this option otherwise you can find this from computer manual or from internet as per your model/brand of PC. also you can try to boot computer only on command promt option, might be this way it will allow you to go on to your hard drive C and then you can copy your restore disk files by dos commands to external hard drive or CD/DVD. also you can copy your data before you wiped out everything and restore system.

if nothing works then get ultimate boot cd from internet, burn on empty disk and boot computer from there. this will definatley lets you in and you can copy all data and restore disk. make sure, you setup boot order as boot from CD and computer will boot from CD directly.

let me know if you stuck soemwhere or any issues.

Thanks.

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

How to reformat ibm pc


Hello Gerjoy06

Thanks for the good thoughts. :)

If yours is a Recovery or System Restore CD provided by IBM w/ that particular model computer, then, no, you will likely not need the OS CD.

I have seen some instances where the OS CD and the recovery CD were needed. So, I can't be certain w/out knowing the model and, possibly, the serial no. of that computer. Chances are, however, that you will not need the OS CD.

Please, make sure that you have backed up all of your data as the restore CD will format your hard drive as part of the System Restore process.

I also recommend that you download all the latest drivers from IBM/LENOVA for that computer and burn them all to a CD-R disc before you begin the restore process. It could save you some trouble.

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.
