Dell :: Latitude D600 Recover Back To Factory Settings

Feb 23, 2009

I have a Dell Latitude D600 which i bought a few months ago second hand, It came with charger and thats it. No recovery disk or nothing. Laptop worked perfect and is a really good laptop. However I have so many viruses on my laptop, I have ran all types of AVG's, adware scanners, and much more. Its cleared alot of the viruses but still the laptop is not working properly.

I would like to restore the laptop back to its factory settings, i have backed up all my data on an external harddrive so its all good. I checked on google and it says something about Pressing F11 + Ctrl or something like that and it has a recovery procedure in the laptop allready. I dont think D600 has that feature and guessing i need a recovery disk. I have looked on ebay and cant find any, Im not even sure what type of recovery disk to get because i found a few, prices were ranging from £30-35 and i cant afford that as i am a student.

Is there a way where i can download some sort of recovery software for dell and burn it onto a disk or something, I looked on google but there is no detailed sources telling me about this,

how i can restore my dell latitude D600 back to its brand new settings without having to buy the recovery disk.

Lenovo P/Y/Z Series :: Cannot Recover To Factory Settings - Y400

Mar 24, 2014

I bought a y400 in feb 2013 and it worked perfectly. Then i faced some SSD issues and the system would hang and needed to force restart .I had to install Ubuntu to work.. I sent it back in feb'14 under warranty and they replaced motherboard ,SSD , HDD , re imaged ,etc . Now i got it back and everything seemed to be ok but was facing display driver issues (tried everything to fix this) and  ended up disabling my graphic card to make the system work seamlessly .
 
Having read on internet somewhere that windows 8.1 may fix the dispaly driver issue , I upgraded to 8.1 from the windows store . After downloading the update I had to restart to install windows 8.1 and it was stuck at 49 % at setting up on lenovo logo screen  for about 2 hrs and I had to force shutdown. 

After starting up again as expected it crashed. Now I cannot Safeboot nor can I use OKR .

After the booting up its landing lenovo logo screen for a while then jumping to select language screen ENGLISH US -> Advanced Options -> cannot find  startup settings (to safe boot)  any option i select for example system restore it then asks me for windows 8 setup or windows 8 OS  when i select any one of them it hangs (blue screen) 

Same happens when i use OKR .It loads the files and then boots to the same language screen . Since Recovery image is stored on separate drive all I need to do is format the C drive but how can I do it ?

Acer :: Recover Office 2007 Trial Only, From Factory Backup

Apr 22, 2009

Can I recover MS Office Home & Student 2007 Trial Edition from the factory backup I did when I get the laptop, but without recovering anything else?

This is an Aspire 4530 running Vista.

The trial version expired and I wanted to uninstall it and install my own copy of Office 2003. But if course it would not uninstall - probably because I wasn't the real "Administrator" at the time. I followed the MS guide for forceably uninstalling and deleting the product, but that failed also.

The only recourse seems to be to re-install it from the 3 factory backup DVDs that I made when I got the laptop. But I have a feeling that all I can do is recover (overwrite) the C drive from the recovery DVDs - either all or nothing. Is that correct?

Dell :: Latitude D600 Getting BSOD

Feb 2, 2010

I was checking my email then all of the sudden, I got Dell's BSOD. I restarted it, when I got into desktop, BSOD again. So I decided restore (clone, I used it 2 times before this happened). The restoration was successful, but when I boot it up, after Windows logo, nothing, blank screen. So I did it again, restoring it. But again, blank screen.
Then I decided to do a fresh clean install of XP, but when I tried to delete that partition, BSOD. I booted up again from the XP CD, I found it had been deleted. So I made a new partition, and format it (NTFS - slow method), but when it got into the middle of copying the files, it said it can't copy the files.

In the moment, I am formatting the hard drive into massive one, instead of two partition. I doubt it that it will work.

What's the problem with my Dell Latitude D600?

Do you think that's the hd?

Just FYI, before this happen, I was thinking of upgrading the hd into bigger hd.

Edit: Yup, it failed. Btw, my D600 is at least 5 years old, original hd.

Dell :: Latitude D600 Dead. DC Jack Issue?

Jul 26, 2009

The unit does not power ON using the AC adapter, no LED lights. I tried using a different working AC adapter from a 600m and didn't work either.

Then I installed a charged battery pack from the 600m into the D600 bay and it power on just fine.

I googled the issue and one suggestion is that the DC power jack could be toast, so I bought a new one over at DCpowerjacks.net
I have it replace by a professional, and after I reassembled the machine the problem persists.

Dell :: Latitude D600 Won't Play Burnt Dvds

Nov 23, 2009

Does anyone know why my Latitude D600 won't play back-up (burnt) dvds, but it plays the original disc? When I put in the burnt disc I hear a clicking sound, but nothing else happens.

I have been trying to use burnt -R discs and dual layer discs; these discs play on other dvd players. Should my laptop plays these discs? And if so why doesn't it? I believe it still has the original drive in it; I bought the laptop second hand.

Dell Latitude D600 :: Computer Keeps Disconnecting From The Internet?

Apr 26, 2013

I just got BT Infinity and whenever I download something or run speed test (speedtest.com) my computer disconnects from the internet and shortly after connects again. How do i fix this? I am running a dell latitude d600 with windows xp. Before bt infinity i just had a normal bt home hub and that worked fine. I don't think this is happening on other computers connected to the network but i can't be sure. I am using Wi-Fi, not ethernet and i haven't tried connecting via ethernet yet but the hub is in a different room and i cant move anything from room to room because of the set up.

A previous answer i got was to re intall my wireless router. I thought this had worked, but it only suspended the time before the disconnect for about 1 min. Then it just went back to disconnecting straight away again.

Dell Latitude D600 :: A06 BIOS Update - Battery Not Charging

Sep 10, 2003

There seems to be a bug in the A06 BIOS update for the Latitude D600.  The power supply that shipped with the machine is Model AA22850 for the PA-12 family.  This power supply charged the battery fine when I received the computer.  I updated the BIOS recently to A06 version and then started receiving a BIOS error upon boot up saying that it did not recognize the power supply.  I replied to the error message and went into the BIOS setup and sure enough the battery status was not showing as charging.  There green charging LED no longer was lit up and upon going into Windows and looking in the Power options in control panel the battery was not showing charging as well.

We happened to have a power supply for a Latitude D800 at the office and I plugged it in and it started charging the battery immediately.  I also did not receive a BIOS error on boot either.  That power supply is for the PA-10 family and has more current output.  Evidently this new A06 BIOS is looking for that power supply.  So....I have to get a larger power supply to have my system now charge.

I don't use it very much; it's more a backup machine and the occasional Skype to grandkids. Been having a problem with being unable to use windows update; keeps getting an 8007005 error.

Googling reveals a lot of folks with the same problem, some different fixes, and mixed success stories. I've tried several of the fixes with no luck and probably made things worse than they were before (now Defender won't update).....

Dell XPS M1330 :: Restore / Reset To Factory Settings?

Jan 31, 2015

i have a 2008 Dell XPS M1330 laptop that i wish to restore to factory settings.  i have saved/copied/transferred any/all files i wish to save.

i have searched (google, you tube, dell.com, forums, support) for the answer and all i find is suggested use of pressing F8 during start up.  when i choose 'repair my system" , windows just loads normally.

the only seemingly 'recovery' disk i can locate says: 

DRIVERS AND UTILITIES Already installed on your computer/For reinstalling Dell xps m1330 computer software. it also says: contents: device drivers/diagnostics and utilities.

i want to 'wipe the slate clean' and start the computer fresh now that i have a new xps8700. if i use this disk to which i refer, will it do what i am wanting?  the computer works fine, but i'm afraid of screwing something up trying to just clean it up and back to original condition.

Acer :: 5920 Restoring To Factory Settings

Mar 3, 2009

to put laptop back to factory settings, so I done the Alt/F10 on the Acer logo page to take me to the page to start this. On the Acer eRecovery Management Page I use the restore system to factory default, when I do this I get a message saying D2D32 - Type mismatch and then hangs there forever until you turn it off. I was reading on here about that error code and done what it said to do to make sure that it was enabled and it is.

I have rang Acer and they said theres nothing they can do as it out of warranty, by 24 days

He didnt make any recovery discs and hes pissed at me because this has happened! am not happy myself, as I rebooted 3 other acers with no problems.

Would he need to purchase disks or can they be got free?

Dell Inspiron 1420 :: Restore To Factory Settings Using Vista

I am trying to do a restore to factory settings on my Dell Inspiron 1420 using Vista. Unfortunately the F8, F11, F12, and all other F options do not work for me (something about a deleted partition??). Soooo, I am trying to locate the discs to use to do this action. I have heard that those are free under warranty, but my computer is from 2007 so is obviously not under warranty. I have done some digging around on the Dell website and have had a difficult time locating any such discs.

Acer :: TravelMate 3280 Restore Factory Settings

May 19, 2009

About a week ago, some serious problems happened to my TravelMate 3280 to the point that booting in safe mode doesn't even work. I couldn't access the eRecovery Management either and didn't any recovery DVD.

So finally, I reinstalled windows XP SP3 from scratch. As a result, the computer didn't have Acer eRecovery Management installed. I still prefer the original factory settings though. So I browsed around online forums and found a thread by Pupples at Install Factory default, eRecovery

I did what Pupples suggested, managed to restore the alt+F10 function, and entered the Acer Recovery Management during start-up. Then, I chose the Restore Factory Settings option.

The restoration process began smoothly until about 50-60% progress when an error message occured. It says:

Fails in creating or opening a file
C:preload.tag
D:preload.tag
X:preload.tag

After those messages, the computer booted again from the beginning and then entered a black screen with a writing on the top of the screen. The writing:

NTLDR is missing. Press any key to continue.

I pressed any key, but the same NTLDR message kept on re-appearing.

Does this have anything to do with the FAT32 or NTFSthing?

Are there any ways to restore my TravelMate 3280's factory settings?

Dell Inspiron 15R-5521 :: System Protection Settings Following USB Factory Recovery

Mar 12, 2013

I have an annoying problem with a Dell 15R-5521 Windows 8 laptop. I tried to do a factory image system recovery via the pre-installed "Dell Backup and Recovery" application. It indicated that the machine would be restarted, however it simply booted back into Windows, as per a normal reboot. I tried this several times, with the same result each time.

I had previously created recovery media on a 16GB USB flash drive, so booted it from this instead. I chose the "Factory Recovery - Deletes data & resets all partitions" option. The process completed successfully, and everything appeared to be fine, however when I looked at the System Protection tab I saw the following.

Protection Settings Available Drives    Protection OS (C:) (System) Off?Volume{da47ae8b-20ce-4f8a-8... OffOC (C:) (Missing) On

I've Googled but I can't find anything about this anywhere.

HP G71-449WM HP OS/Software :: No Internet Connection After Resetting To Factory Settings

I have an HP G71-449WM HP notebook.  It was all messed up and wouldn't let me restore to an earlier point at all so I reset it to the factory settings.  I didn't make a back up because there was nothing I wanted to save.  I am unable to connect to the internet now, wirelessly or by hooking up to an ethernet cable.   It gets an error while going through the initial set up where you set your  password for the pc, the time, etc.  when it gets to the spot for connecting to the internet it gets an error, freezes up.  I turn it off and turn it back on and it just loads like a normal computer, but can't connect to the internet no matter what.  I've reset it to the factory settings about 5 times in the last 3 days and am getting the same problem each time.  I have no recovery disks or anything.
