Restoring Your Operating System

You can restore your operating system in the
following ways:
System
Restore returns your computer to an
earlier operating state without affecting data
files. Use System Restore as the first solution
for restoring your operating system and
preserving data files.
Dell Factory Image Restore returns your hard
drive to the operating state it was in when
you purchased the computer. This procedure
permanently deletes all data on the hard
drive and removes any programs installed
after you received the computer. Use Dell
Factory Image Restore only if System
Restore did not resolve your operating
system problem.
If you received an
Operating System disc
with your computer, you can use it to restore
your operating system. However, using the
Operating System disc also deletes all data
50
on the hard drive. Use the disc only if System
Restore did not resolve your operating
system problem.
System Restore
The Windows operating systems provide
a System Restore option which allows
you to return your computer to an earlier
operating state (without affecting data files) if
changes to the hardware, software, or other
system settings have left the computer in an
undesirable operating state. Any changes that
System Restore makes to your computer are
completely reversible.
CAUTION: Make regular backups of your
data files. System Restore does not monitor
your data files or recover them.
NOTE: The procedures in this document
were written for the Windows default view,
so they may not apply if you set your Dell
computer to the Windows Classic view.
