System Restore Not Working

2009-06-22, 16:29 PM

I am not able to restore to any date in System Restore. I'm running an x61T with Windows Vista.  I don't know how to give you BIOS information, so if you need that you might need to help me figure out how to retrieve that for you.   I tried the oldest date which was May 28th and it went through the process and then a message popped up that it was not able to restore to the date.  I tried June 18, it tried preparing my system for restoration, but I get this message:

System Restore did not complete successfully.  Your computer's system files and settings were not changed.

 

Details:

 

The writer experienced a transient error.  If the backup process is retried, the error may not reoccur. (0x800423F3)

 

First, I don't understand what that means.  I'm not sure what a transient error is and how to retry the backup process.  I don't know what to do.

I never have this error as well, but it seems that some have faced this problem. You might want to check this out. http://www.winvistaclub.com/t89.html It should be helpful figuring out what is wrong with the system.

I looked at the link and steps 1-5 did not help.  I want to do step 8, I have to boot into safe mode.  I believe that would be pressing F8 before startup, right?  That's not working for me.

Thank you for the link, but none of the solutions worked.  I still cannot restore anything.
