You will need to restart the computer again, and as you see the monitor light up you will need to start pressing the F8 key on the keyboard. This will take you to a special diagnostic startup menu. In that menu you will need to use the cursor keys and choose safe mode and press enter. After pressing enter you may see an option asking you to select the operating system. If you do just select it with the cursor keys on the keyboard and press enter. If not, just continue with the next steps.

You will see a list of files scroll down the screen. There is no need to worry its just a list of drivers. After that list stops you see see a dialog that advises you are running in safe mode. It will give you the option of staying in safe mode by clicking yes or you can choose No to enter the System Restore program. Once there try choosing an earlier date.

Hopefully that will correct the issue. Please remember to rate this solution.

I cannot find a new restoring point for my paker bell computer

The restore points in windows are generated automatically, in order to restore your computer to a previous date a valid restore point would need to already exist. You cannot manually assign a restore date.

Need to set my laptop to an earlyer date

Its very simple....go for a system restore and set your laptop to a early date. In the meanwhile if you had deleted any files, you can get them back as well. This is the best weapon online technical support technicians go for.

    After start up my computer goes to a black screen anyone know what i can do?


    Either you have a memory issue or operating system problem.

    First, disconnect all cables. Be certain to dispel static electricity by touching metal. Remove the cover. Try reseating (removing and reinserting) your memory (try one module at a time to test).

    If still a problem, boot your system to Safe Mode (press F8 repeatedly). Go to System Restore and choose a date when your system worked OK. Note: with System Restore, everything, including your documents and other files you saved on the hard drive, will roll back to that date.

    If you can't access System Restore by Safe Mode, try Offline System Restore:
    1. Boot from the DVD
    2. Select the Language
    3. Click on "Repair your Computer" on the Install now screen
    4. Click next on the System Recovery Options screen
    5. Click on System Restore.
    6. Choose the date to which you want to restore

    If still a problem, the last choices are Factory Restore and reinstall. Accessing Factory Restore (restores to the factory settings and will wipe out anything that you have installed or saved on your PC), is dependent on your hardware manufacturer. Boot your system and press F10, F11, Alt+F10, or Ctrl+F11 to access Factory Restore. Follow the prompts.

    If still not resolved, you'll probably need to reinstall your operating system.

    Hope this helps.

    Just bought an acer aspire worked fine for a few days now it will pop up there was a problem with the internet and shut the itnernet down,it started out going blue screen and at the bottom...

    I think the problem is related to virus. Try restoring your PC to an earlier date 9 a date when it worked fine). You do this from Start-> Programs -> Accesories -> System Tools -> System Restore. Select
    Restore my computer to an earlier time and Click Next. A date calender will appear, select the preferred date and click Next twice. The system will automatically restart when restoration is done.

    If u are not abe to run System Restore then you need to enter safe mode by pressing F8 during booting and selecting Safe Mode from the menu that appears. In safe mode you will be asked a question, you have to select no, and system restore will start

    If restoring your pc does not solve the problem then you may need to reinstall your OS.
