Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

System Recovery I dont have instructions on how to do the System Recovery and i have the CD's to do it with i just have no idea what to do. PLEASE HELP.

Answers :


Before doing a system restore- please scan for virus.

1. There are many ways to approach this.
a. you can restore your system to an earlier time when it worked well - This is the best solution for most problems - go to start- program- accessories- system tools and system restore.

2. or two- you can completely reset your computer to factory settings. this will delete everything on the hard drive.
Usually- you only need to put disk one in the disk drive and reboot your computer. You should see a series of instructions and choices. I can't be more specific as you have not said which system or computer that you have.
Have you tried booting your machine with the recovery CD in? Does it ask to boot from the CD then give you options to do a factory reset or system recovery?

This is usually how they work, in BIOS make sure your D/DVD drive is in the first BOOT DEVICE priority.
