Dell Vostro 3360 :: Unable To Restore DataSafe Factory Image Using USB

Feb 19, 2013

I got a brand new VOSTRO 3660 with x3 USB 3.0, and since it has no CD/DVD my only option of creating Factory Recovery Image with DataSafe is thrught USB

which is USB 3.0.

I have done some digging before posting, and I understood that I had to enter to the bios and change USB debug Mode to Enable in order to make it work as USB 2.0  (Disable USB 3.0 functionality to install Windows 7 from a USB Flash Drive).

thing is that I tried that several thing to recover the windows 7, deleted the usb flash drive and made several copies and in the end of it I always get to a screen which tells me that "if you are trying to restore your pc from usb 3.0 ................change to a different usb port " .

Dell Vostro 3360 :: Roll Back To Factory Settings

Mar 24, 2013

I get my new "Vostro 3360" and I needed to do "roll back" to factory settings but I had some problem:

- I tried to do a "recover / estore" but there was nothing in the list - I already installed the laptop also installed many programs (e.g: office, winscp, irfanview etc.)

- I tried to go through the "help center" on the laptop and same issue - nothing, all empty

- I even try to reinstall from the disk I got with the laptop BUT it didn't found my hard disks... so basically, my question is how can I install the laptop from the included windows 8 cd that I got?

I just want to reinstall my laptop like it was as I got it from the factory

Dell :: Factory Image Restore

Sep 3, 2009

I am trying to restore my laptop (studio xps 16) to factory settings using the recovery image. If I look in my computer, i can see C and D drives.

D is my recovery partition with 7gb full out of 10gb. This is good and dandy except when i open the D drive, there is one folder that says RECOVERY that is empty. Why is it empty when there are 7gb's of files in there? I already have hidden files shown

Dell :: Factory Image Restore 1640

Dec 18, 2009

trying to do a factory image restore on my Studio XPS 1640. I've done this before on other Dells but this one I don't see the Dell image restore option as said in the booklet.

I don't see the Dell Facotry TOols either. I just have the following: startup repair, system restore, system image recovery, windows memory diagnostic, and command prompt.

I chose system image recovery and it doesn't pull up anything - it's for my own images I made. No option to pull up my Dell factory image which I still have in it's own seperate partition.

My Dell ATG E6410 basically completely crashed. Nothing from the hard drive was salvageable (including any of the recovery files). I contacted dell support and they sent me 2 dell DVD's. They are labeled as "DELL SOFTWARE RESTORATION DVD".The only problem is, THEY WILL NOT BOOT! I have tried booting directly from the Bios and no luck what else.

Dell Inspiron 1545 :: Windows 7 Not Starting After Factory Image Restore

Feb 20, 2013

Dell Insprion 1545

I recently did a factory image restore on my Dell laptop because I couldn't seem to get rid of a virus on my computer. The factory image restore was completed successfully but now windows will not start up. Startup repair says

"cannot repair this computer automatically-

Problem event name- startup repair offline

Problem signature 01: 6.1.7600.163.85

Problem signature 02: 6.1.7600.163.85

Problem signature 03: unkown

Problem signature 04: 21200839

Problem signature 05: Autofailover

Problem signature 06: 3

Problem signature 07:Failure during setup

OS version: 6.1.7600.

Locale ID: 1033" 

I performed regular diagnostics on the computer and all tests were passed. I also did a custom diagnostics test on the hard drive and all tests were passed, except for the last test it said "there is no flash drive in the card reader". Which I believe is probably normal?

My computer only came with two disks from the store. One titled 'Drivers and utilities-for reinstalling dell insipron laptop computer software', and the other titled 'Application- for reinstalling cyberlink powerDVD DX 8.3 software for windows 7'. I do not have a cd for windows 7.

HP Pavilion G6 2240SA Recovery :: Unable To Restore To Factory State

Aug 27, 2014

Pavilion G6-SS40SA running Windows 8. I am working on this computer for a friend. Somehow, he managed to get an app on there which ran at startup and resulted in it slowing down internet access to a crawl as well as making the machine virtually unusable . In an effort to get rid of it, he attempted running restore. However, neither destructive or non-destructive options would work. He was getting error messages - firstly 'Unable to reset your PC. A required drive partition is missing', followed by 'The drive where Windows is installed is locked. Unlock the drive and try again'. I managed to locate the program that was causing the problem, and uninstalled it. He asked me to reset the computer to factory state, but  unfortunately, this will not work - it starts up, warns that all data will be lost and I confirm that I want to proceed. It then appears to start the process, but almost immediately ends shows a message saying that no changes have been made. Where do I go from here?

Acer :: Backup/Factory Recovery Make Your Own Factory Image?

Jan 12, 2009

I have been given an Acer 6930G by a family member to setup. After realising there's 0 discs included with the laptop, the Acer pop up message tells me I have to make my own factory default image. I have successfully made it on 2 DVDs, my question is now in the manual there is nothing about how to use it, I was wondering if anyone can share any insight to me as to how it works.

Basically I know it is probably a bootable DVD as the root of the DVD suggests (several "BOOT" files) I was wondering how it actually looks like? I haven't tested it yet as the user was extremely desperate to get it running so I had to give it up the moment the DVDs were made.

If I put the DVD in and select to boot from it at start up (before getting into windows) does it take me to some sort of custom screen where I can SELECT that I want to reformat and restore the laptop? I want to know what options I am given and I can only assume that it's the same for most laptops.

And I can only assume again, that if I factory restore it, it will come back with Vista activated and all the initial bloatware again, along with all the drivers for it (so I don't need to go track them down).

This is all I need to know, I wish I can test it but I can't even get the laptop back now (until it breaks ...)

If someone can post their experiences with it I will be grateful, this is just more for reassurance than anything, and confirm my assumptions? Many thanks in advance!

EDIT: I have discovered that I can launch that recovery app by pushing ALT+F10, I have managed to wrangle the laptop temporarily to test and have discovered that I can choose from 2 back up options, but I dare not go any further, can someone tell me the next steps? One says factory default, and the other is user's backup.

I can guess that if I choose the first option, factory default, it'll ask for the DVDs I have created? And the 2nd option will restore a backup I made selecting the user option on the recovery app.

Dell Vostro 3360 :: Can't Boot From SSD

Feb 9, 2013

I got a new Vostro 3360 with the i7, 8GB of RAM, a 500GB 5400 RPM HDD and a 32GB mSata SSD drive which was used to cache the HDD with the Intel Smart Response Technology. Unfortunately, the computer also came with Windows 8, which is useless for me, so I'm trying to install Ubuntu 12.04 on it.

Now, I managed to overcome many issues so far; I got the Secure Boot turned off, unchained the HDD and the SSD, turned the raid flag off for both, and managed to repartition the SSD so that I could install the Ubuntu system on it. However, I can't see to be able to boot from the ssd no matter what I do. It shows in the BIOS as present, but I don't have it as a boot option. I tried installing the system and keeping the GRUB bootloader on the HDD, that didn't work either.

This is supposed to be my new work computer and trying to get the installation to work is eating up a lot of time...

Dell Vostro 3360 :: Opensuse 12.3 Kernel 3.7 - Caps Led And Brightness Keys

Apr 8, 2013

I have strange quirks with caps led indicator and brightness keys: they work just after power on, in grub menu but they cease to work after operation system boots to graphical environment.

Caps lock itself is working fine: just indicator don't light up. Brightness control itself is working also: I can configure brightness if I map other buttons. Just function keys don't work. I've tested it on opensuse 12.3 kde and gnome running 3.7 kernel: both are affected. Opensuse 12.2 with previous kernel didn't have such quirks. What causes this quirks.

Dell Vostro 3360 :: Windows Reinstall - Installer Can't Find Any Drives

Jan 6, 2015

I've got a Dell Vostro 3360 laptop, with a 500gb HDD + 32gb SSD (hybrid) and a pre-installed Windows 8.1. My problem is the following: I've tried to re-install the OS (windows 7 x64) but the installer can't find any drives. I've googled the problem and found this topic: [URL] .....

It says:

1. Ensure Sata mode is set to RAID in BIOS or in some systems Intel Smart Response Technology
2. Go to RAID BIOS(Use Ctrl+I) and disable accelerate option for SSD (Only if HDDs are not detected while OSRI)

My raid setting is ISRT, but I can't enter the raid bios, cause CTRL+ I does nothing. I also tried CTRL + R and G but neither worked. How to reinstall the OS?

Dell Inspiron 17R :: Cannot Perform Factory Image Backup

Dec 29, 2012

I have a Dell Inspiron 17R Special Edition Laptop with Windows 8, bought on 12/16/2012. The Dell Backup and Recovery version does not seem to work properly when using the "Recovery Media" option (“Create a copy of your factory image in case of critical hardware failure.”) for doing a "Factory Backup" with Discs.I am using new Maxell DVD+R discs.

After the first disc is written and validated it is ejected. A new blank disc is requested, placed in the drive, and then OK is clicked, and the new disc is in for a short while and then ejected without anything being written to it. Also, the DVD is still listed in the File Explorer as "DVD RW Drive (D:) Recovery" even though no DVD is in the drive and the drive tray is in (normally, when there is no DVD in the drive the DVD drive is no longer shown in the File Explorer).

If the backup is canceled and a blank disc is placed back in, then checking the properties of the disc shows 0 GB available and 0 GB Used - this error is corrected by Restarting the computer. After the Restart the disc is properly shown to have 3.9GB Available and 0GB Used.I tried again to do the backup and the same thing happened, with only the first disc actually being written and validated. That first disc is named “Recovery” and it does contain folders: Boot, EFI, preload, and Recovery. It has files: AUTORUN.INF, BOO.MGR, BOOTMGR, BOOTMGR.EFI, MASTERLOG, and Media.ico. Used space is 3.81 GB.

Since the Dell backup program for the factory image does not seem to recognize that a new blank disc is inserted after it was done with the first disc, I cannot make a backup of the factory image.
