Follow this process ---> Press and Hold CTRL + F11 by the time you see the blue line that has www.dell.com after the dell splash logo and then it would show up the symantec ghost --> choose restore then follow the rest of the affirmative prompts

Hopefully there is a restore point that you can have the computer restore from but here are the steps for you to do so:

Go to Start Menu > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore

In the prompt, be sure to select that you want to "Restore to an earlier point" and follow the prompts to restore your computer.

My suggestion is that once you've successfully restored your system and it is working completely to your satisfaction, that you repeat the above steps and create a new restore point for the present date.

Can I format this back to original factory settings without a CD?


The only way you cna restore the Dell back to the original settings is to use the Dell recovery CD for your model Dell.
You can get one from the Dell WEB site.

You can download the device drivers from Dell WEB site,the support download page. Make sure you select your model desktop or laptop,better still, type in the Service Tag number, it is printed on the label on thebottom of the laptop and on the back or sides of a desktop. (If the Service Taglabel is missing then go into the BIOS setting and on one of the BIOS pages,the Service Tag number will be displayed). This will open the page where thespecific drivers for your model computer are located. Also make sure you selectthe Windows of the drivers for your Windows operating system. Click on thislink to download the drivers: - http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/index.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen

Starting problem


Immediately after seeing the Dell logo, keep tapping the 'F8' key,
until you see a "menu" (white text over a black background)
giving "startup" options for Windows XP.

Select "Safe Mode" and see if you can start in that mode.
Then, use "System Restore" to go "back" in time, to the most-recent checkpoint (date/time) where your computer _DID_ work.

Restore to that point, and restart.

I need to do a full recovery of a dell inspiron 1300 ? i do not have a recovery disk... is there anything that i can do ?


Burn all your important files to a CD or store on a memory stick. Remember you will lose each bit of information that you had stored in your computer including the programs that you had installed, such as Microsoft Office.
Unplug all the devices and drivers from your CPU (except the keyboard and the mouse), including your printer, camera and memory stick.
Shut off the computer and then turn it on, or simply restart it.
As soon as you see the Dell logo at the start keep on hitting the F8 key repeatedly. Do not stop until you see the screen that says "Repair your computer." There will be other options too but chose this option and hit Enter.
Next you will see a prompt window giving you options to select the keyboard layout select from the drop-down menu "US" and click "OK."
On the next screen you will be asked to select the user ID and the password of your Windows Vista account. Select your user account, but make sure your user account has administrative functions. Type in your password. If you don't have a password, leave it blank and click "OK."
Now you will come to a window with multiple options. Choose the one at the bottom that reads, "Dell Factory Image Restore." If you are unsure at this point whether you want to go ahead and restore your factory settings you may click "Restart" or the "Shut Down" buttons at the bottom of this prompt window. The computer will restart your computer without executing this operation, and you will get your most recent settings back. Otherwise clicking "Dell Factory Image Restore" will generate an operation that will take about 45 minutes to complete.

I can not restore my inspiron 2650 to its fatory settings


There are several ways to restore your Dell PC to factory settings.
Are you looking to just undo something that happened a day or two ago and not loose any data?
You can try the windows system restore.
Start>Programs>Accessories>System Tools>System Restore.
The other option is to back up your data and pics then while your laptop is booting up hit Shift and F11 repeatly and follow the dell system restore prompts.

Here is the XP instructions:

Reset to factory settings


If the system has the original Dell image, then just after the Dell Bios splash screen should be a black screen with w blue bar at the top with www.dell.com at the top.

At that screen press CTRL + F11 to initiate the PC Restore program.

Hi i need help with my dell laptop


If the computer came with the restore "Partition" instead of disks, you can re-set it to the original factory settings. When the computer starts and you see the DELL logo press the CTRL key and the F11 key at the same time, then follow the prompts.
