Restore Windows® 7 in Fujitsu® LifeBook 3110
How do you restore Windows 7 in Fujitsu LifeBook 3110?
Fujitsu LifeBook 3110 has two choices for its operating system. Both Windows 7 and Windows Vista are supported by this Fujitsu model. There is not much difference in system restore utilities of Windows 7 and Windows Vista operating system. Indeed the utility acts as saver for your system when anything wrong happens with your computer system. System Restore for Windows works like the 'Undo' command in a MS Word document. When you install or uninstall software, your system’s registry changes or deletes files. That might lead to a system crash or make the system unstable. By using System Restore you can create system restore points and it allows you to return your system in to its previous state. There are two ways through which you could use the restore feature. You can type ‘Restore ‘or ‘rstrui’ in the search box on the Start menu and click 'Enter'. You will get a window of ‘Restore System Files and Settings’.
Some of the things you should keep in mind while restoring Windows 7 in Fujitsu LifeBook 3110 is discussed below.
- Use system in Safe Mode
- Use recommended settings
- Reboot the system after restoring
Use system in Safe Mode
Sometimes you will get some error messages while you restore the system. This indicates that you need to run your system in Safe Mode. To get your system to Safe Mode you have to reboot the system and press and hold the function key F8 just before Windows starts up. Safe Mode allows only necessary applications for proper functioning of the computer system to be run.
Use recommended settings
While you restore, you will get a window with two options which include 'Recommended Restore' and 'Choose a Different Restore Point'. You are strongly advised to choose recommended settings rather than other restore points which are created by yourself. Recommended settings turn your system to factory settings which is safe because it contains only necessary software for Windows to work.
If you are not getting into Windows even after restoring it, you should restart the system after completing the restore process. Sometimes your system will not boot after the restore procedure. Then you could use an installation DVD to boot and choose “Repair your computer” option. Your operating system files might get corrupt on your hard drive. You can also use your recovery disc to reboot the system.
