Specs: window xp pro, ?

A file might have been deleted by accident. At start up, my pc displays the welcome screen and the sign in screen and logs off and displays the welcome screen and sign in screen again... Do I need a recovery/restore cd or an installation cd?
And where can I get the cd at a low price?

... try tapping F8 key @boot-up select Safe Mode using arrow keys [press ENTER]

... if you manage to enter into safe mode just follow the pop-up prompt to restore

... alter the calendar to an earlier date to when the pc was working fine [in restore]

Grrrr

I had a laptop I was repairing and they had no recovery CD. I called Dell and they sent a free one for that model. Just try contacting them.

Thankyou..I did the F8 and no success. I called Dell..the automated system is poor..got bounced around..than, got to speak to the out sourced people..they shown little dynamics..they speak english, but think in their native language..a big separation to connect..they lack comprehension. I wish I could speakie to a US Dell. If a Dell/US telephone number can be provided, I would appreciate it.

Sure - Dell Premium Support for Consumers is HERE. The caveat for speaking to an English-speaking Tech Representative comes with a price starting at USD $49

I got the disc almost a year ago. It was the 800 customer support that I called at that time.
I still have the page bookmarked:
http://support.dell.com/support/top...

I've found that when calling and you get a bunch of prompts, just keep pushing '0' for the operator, the machine gets puzzled and they connect you to a live person in customer service. I hate all those prompts anymore : )
