Ghosting is a condition where theimage prints properly, but a much lighter copy of the image also printselsewhere. This can be due to a problem with the power outlet that is supplyingpower to the printer. Check the power outlet by plugging in a different printerto see if the same results occur. Ghosting can also be caused when consumableprinter parts (such as the drum or imaging kit) are near the end of their life.All of the consumable parts in a printer are rated for a certain number ofpages. Once a printer gets near that magic number, you'll need to replace thoseparts to eliminate ghosting. This will help. good luck.
Ghost images appear on
the printed page because of bad cleaning blade or improper charging of
the drum unit. Ghost images appear on the next printed page if
cleaning blade does not clean the drum surface. Drum/ photoconductor
is very sensitive to light, so special care should taken while pulling
it out. Read More here Image ghosting problem
Ghosting is caused by a worn drum unit. The printer drum is used to transfer the image to the paper and is coated with Teflon, when the coating is worn the toner sticks to it a bit and you get the ghost images. The part number you need to get for the replacement is DR350, they are available online or at Office Depot, Staples, Etc.

Not sure which software you are using for making the ghost image. Lets say its "Acronis". First, you will need an USB hard disk drive to store the image on. Next, run the boot cd and choose backup. Send it to the hdd. If it was successful, remove / replace your hdd. Run the boot cd again but now choose "Restore". Locate your image and then wait.
Hope this helps you. Norton Ghost is a bit different.
Ghost saved the drive information in an image file. Whatever you named your backup you would see *.gho, *001.gho, *002.gho. That is your whole hard drive in a spanned image file. Ghost Explorer is what you need to open and view these images and you would be able to extract files as your would from a zip file. There are no restore points as you would think using Windows Restore. Only the raw hard drive information as it appears on your dive now. I'm not sure if Ghost Explorer is provided with the home edition as I'm used to the enterprise for my work.
let me know if this helps
I figured out how to ghost a Dell Precision 490 with a 32 bit Windows XP Image! Like you I had the same problem where it would constantly reboot after I imaged it with an existing 490 image. The answer is actually very simple. Boot up your Precision 490 and hit F2 to enter the bios. Select Drives and then SATA Operation, change it to "Raid Autodetect / ATA". Reboot the 490 and re image the machine, it will now work!
After fdisk and format you need to ensure that operative system is installed into yor hard drive. Using ghost you restore the image disk by booting from ghost image CD if you made a bootable image disk. Ensure Bios is set up to boot from CD. If you used Norton Ghost ensure you captured the image of full bootable original hard disk drive for same computer. If it does not boot after restoring ghosted image, than the image it is probably not complete. If hard disk image is not good, easiest thing to do is using Windows install CD to installl again operative system, then you eventually restore ghost image.
