antoniogmart,

Unfortunately, the Optiplex 740 did not ship with a Factory Restore Partition. You will need to manually reinstall Windows, Drivers and Software. Below are links to provide you with information on installing Windows XP as well as the drivers download page.

Reset dell mini10


restart press key F11 HOLD THE KEY TILL RESTORE STARTS

RESTORE TO FACTORY SETTINGS OR GERT AND EXTERNAL CD/RW USE THE FACTORY CDS
Many years ago, Dell started shipping computers with a small Dell Utility partition hidden at the front of the hard disk, followed by the main (Windows operating system) partition. Beginning around July 2004, select Dell computers in the Dimension and Inspiron model lines began shipping with a third partition hidden at the end of the hard disk. This third partition contains the "Dell PC Restore by Symantec" utility--colloquially referred to as DSR ("Dell System Restore"). This is a utility that can be used to return a computer to its "as shipped" state, with the XP operating system restored to the condition it was in when the user first unpacked the computer from the box. Pressing the right keys when the computer is starting up will boot this DSR partition.

Cant save dell drivers to disc for use on my Omniplex 260


The Dell drivers are held on a hidden partition on the hard drive. If you make a Knoppix CD, and boot with it, you'll have access to the partition. Save the files to a USB flash drive.

Restore to factory specs optiplex sx260


The Optiplex series of systems have no restore partition to re-image the system. If you want to have a clean start, you will need to do a clean install of Windows, load the drivers and applications.
Drivers can be downloaded from Support.dell.com but you will need the media for Windows and any applications.

Reloaded xp pro on dell lap and then the blue screen of death and now nothing except error loading os Please if you can help I know very little about computers so bear with me...


Just about every prebuilt system. Dell, HP, Compaq, e-Machine ECT.
Place a small hidden partition at the front of the primary hard disk drive.
This partition is about 2MB to 4MB in size. Within this hidden partition are drivers. If you need to reinstall your operating system you will need to use the manufactures restore CD's. On the other hand if you are trying to install another operating system like, (An upgrade or a full install of another OS), though it may appear windows is installing it is not. Hence the blue screen. Once you delete this hidden partition you can install or reinstall the operating system of your choice. There are two ways around this. 1.) Download and run a program called, Darik's Boot and Nuke for CD and DVD 1.07. This allows you to create a bootable CD or bootable floppy disk. Download link below;
http://download.cnet.com/Darik-s-Boot-and-Nuke-for-CD-and-DVD/3000-2094_4-10151762.html
This program will remove/delete everything including hidden partitions.
This program has been updated so you can remove the hidden partition without harming your current windows.
Once completed you will be free to install any operating system.
2.) Run Darik's Boot and Nuke to remove the small hiddion partiton.
Boot to your windows CD. Carefully read the screens that come up. If you have personal data in your operating system and don't want to loose that data than follow these instruction. During the install of windows, you will come to a screen where windows will show you the partitions on your drive. If your drive has a min of 50 to 60GB of free space you can create another partition within the free space and install windows fresh. Once windowsw has been installed and updated you can now copy and past all your personal data to the new windows.
When finished, click Sart, Run and type " diskmgmt.msc " and click ok. In windows disk managment you can now delete your old windows partition. If you need help using diskmgmt.msc just open the link below;

Hey, My Dell Optiplex GX270 will run for a quick second, beep, and then a light with a barrel looking icon lights for a second too. How do I fix this? Thanks so much!


I would run diagnostics. Here's how you do it if the utility partition exists on your hard drive:

Starting the Dell Diagnostics From Your Hard Drive
  1. Shut down and restart the computer.

  2. When the DELL™ logo appears, press <F12> immediately.

NOTE: If you see a message stating that no diagnostics utility partition has been found, run the Dell Diagnostics from your Drivers and Utilities CD.
If you wait too long and the Microsoft® Windows® logo appears, continue to wait until you see the Windows desktop. Then shut down your computer through the Start menu and try again.
  1. When the boot device list appears, highlight Boot to Utility Partition and press <Enter>.

  2. When the Dell Diagnostics Main Menu appears, select the test you want to run.
