Need restore dvd for insignia d400a

Bought this computer last year online with now restore dvd. worked perfect in the beginning. i cant even listen to music without it glitching when i try to do other things at the same time like checkin my email. i've upgraded the RAM to 1.5G hopin that will fix the problem but it didnt. so now i need the restore dvd but i cant find it anywhere. i went to geeksquad they say i need to buy a new OS that cost 200 then installing it cost another 150 so 400 just to reformat the computer. thats more than what i paid for the computer. do you or anyone you know has the restore dvd?

    i have done all the virus scans malware/spyware scans. ive defrag and checked disks. ive used programs to speed up my computer. everything is up to date. nothing seems to work. now i just want to completely start brand new. i was actually goin to go to a computer store today and go buy a new computer for $500. but if u do have the restore dvd i would really appreciate it if u give me a copy. thanks. and yes i've tried both adaware and spybot both at the same time. i'll download window washer and see how tat works out. by the way the only time my computer gets really glitchy and annoys me is when i listen to music and when i watch videos i download. all my sound and my video cards have been updated and ive tried rollback driver but nothing works stil glitch

You can buy it from DELL. They will send it to you for between $20 to $40. Sounds like you have spyware though.

Turn the system restore off. System restore keeps everything in restore. Meaning......... If you have spyware or a virus, it will stay in your system. Run Spybot S&D (This program is free and is better than using msconfig as long as you go through the settings and change everything to the highest settings.) Then do the same with Adaware 2008 (sounds stupid to use 2 things for spyware, but one catches what the other one does not.). I have links on my website ( These links go directly to the download so you will not get the run around. You would do good to try a program called Window Washer. This is a great program that completely cleans anything in your computer that you do not need. It will not clean out anything that you have to have. I have used this for years to clean out my customers computers and have cleaned as much as 3 gigs of trash out. If you contact me I will give you some tools that I have for free that will do a great job on your computer. I have them ready to download and I will give you the link. ([email protected])

Window Washer Download.

How to get the cd-rom for my insignia desktop

You cant. You can download all the drivers from Insignia directly but they do not support the restore/ recovery cd's any longer. I would find a forum that deals only with Insignia and ask some users that might have the same model.

I downloaded windows XP onto Insignia 400a and need to know which drivers to download and if you have the links

If you have the original Insignia Restore DVD, then all drivers should be available automaticly, but if you are installing from a Microsoft disk, then you'll need a Realtek AC97 audio driver and an Intel 82845G video driver for the onboard chipsets.
( Sorry, you'll have to google for the driver links, Fixya's capcha, required to post links, doesn't seem to work anymore. )

All other hardware varies too much, even from the factory when these computers were new, so you'd have to either track down drivers for those, or hope that Windows can find it while checking for hardware changes and updates.

Contact the computer manufacturer. Once they verify system model & serial # on the phone they usually will send a replacement recovery cd at little or no charge. Hope this helps & please take a moment to rate this solution. Thanks.

Restore dvd for d400a

Get Windows CD with a proper license and try to install the Windows fresh by reformatting the system. Before that you would need to backup your drivers. For that use which is a free software. However, the downside of this method is that you won't get any of the additional software that came included with the system, if you did get any.
