im trying to fix my friends dell inspiron 1000 laptop because it is constantly freezing and just doesnt work. ive tried all i know wat to do and now i just need to know how to do a complete system recovery on it. it did come with a installation disk, but that is too much trouble. ive had the same problems with my laptop 1150 and i submitted a thread about the same issues and asked about a system recovery option. mine i think iwas hitting an F key and i got the screen to do a recovery. but i tried it on my friends and no luck. if ne one has the same type of laptop, 1000, and knows how to do what im wanting to do, please let me know. thanks.
