    Here is history of my PC - INSPIRON E1405 WIndows XP with Media Direct. I planned to go for system restore using restore point on 4/6/10 and I was shocked to see only one restore point that also of same date -4/6/10. I was not able to see any other restore point. I did restore with that point. After that I tried to go for Factory Default Restore using CTR +F11 key option at the time of reboot. At first I got XLDR ATA error and so I was not able to do factory restore but I was able to do all normal work. I read some forums and I did CHKDSK to check file system on all drives -C/D and F according to someone's suggestion. After this I again tried to go for Factory Restore using CTL +F11 and XLDR ATA error was fixed but now I got PBR2 DONE error and was not able to do factory restore. I was still able to login to my system and do normal work this time also.
    Now I took backup of C Drive and system state using default tool in start --all program -accessories - system tools - backup tool on external HDD. I again restored backup copy of C drive from external HDD to system and still I am not able to do factory restore.

    I am not worried about data or software as I have multiple copies of it on different PC and external HDD.
    I am able to login to system and work in normal mode except some functionality are giving error.
    Please help me to go for factory restore.

    The Dell restore feature is a difficult one to solve, it is a complex feature and is very hard to repair, not for the non geek.


    That is not a very good backup tool, it is known to fail when it comes time to restore from it.

    You are better off using something like this
