Windows system restore not functional N200

2008-11-07, 13:10 PM

Hi,

I have Lenovo 3000 N200, xp sp3.

My problem is, I cant use the system restore (in system tools). I do have the system restore points but everytime i used the system restore, it said unsuccessful restore. Everytime.

Is it just me or is it because of Lenovo system?

 

And...

 

I was sent recovery discs because i had problem with the original os. I've used the recovery discs and it was okay. What I wanted to know is, do I have to keep using the cds if i want to reformat (factory setting), again?

 

Secondly, i want to upgrade my memory. i tried to install it once, but after i turned it on, it shut down immediately. was it because i didnt reinstall the battery? i'd used ibm notebook before and i didnt use the battery to upgrade the memory.

 

and if i manage to upgrade the new memory, do i have to use battery all the time?

 

excuse me if the questions sound silly, but i need to know.

 

Thanks

Is the new memory according to recommended specs?

there is no connection between battery and memory as far as i know. but while restoring OS to factory settings, it is advised that you keep original factory hardware (use old memory sticks etc.).

Yes. I got it from Lenovo, after all. It came with the purchase as free gift.

I have the same problem with Windows Vista system restore in my Lenovo 3000 N200.

In Windows XP on a desktop PC there is never problems with system restore.
