Rebooting my Dell Inspiron 6000 Laptop

Hello,

I have a problem, I want to reboot my inspiron 6000 laptop to its original state (when I first bought it). It did not come with a boot disc i had to make one using the dell os recovery option. However, the problem is that when I insert the disc, I only get options to reinstall windows rather than reboot my laptop, and also windows asks for a serial code which, to as far as I can remember, did not come with my laptop, as windows was pre-installed. Is there anyway of solving this? Also is there a way of rebooting my laptop without the disc?

    Will reinstalling windows recover my laptop back to its factory installed state? If not, how do I do it because my laptop didnt come with a reload disc, I had to make, when I did, a message window said I can use it to recover my laptop, but all the disc does is provide an option to reinstall windows.

Rebooting a laptop means turning it off then on again not to it's original state, your are using a recovery disc which will reformat your drive the reinstall windows, loosing any documents or files you have saved.

The serial or product key code for windows is always on the underside of the laptop

    it will recover it to it's original state, although this will mean reformatting it automatically, therefore losing any installed programmes, unless they came originally installed and were in the back up process, all documents will be lost

Lost DVD drive


Try removing the player from your laptop and rebooting without it. Shut it down and put the player back in then restart again. That should force windows to reinstall it. If it's not seen when rebooting the device is probably bad.

ARCHIE Removal


It should have been taken off at time of purchase.
Go to Best Buy Geek Squad with your receipt proving you bought it and they'll remove it (it should be for free, otherwise complain cause you should be notified by the salesperson that you need it removed).
Only best buy can remove it with their disks, if you try uninstalling it it'll reinstall itself.

You can also pick up the batteries less expensive than most computer places at batteries plus. And yes it sounds as though it is the batteries charge is getting low, especially if it runs fine when the battery is out and you have it plugged in.
