If you run into problems with your computer, sometimes, a system restore can be very helpful. In many cases, an update, new software or other change recently made could be the reason your machine is acting up and you’ll need the assistance of tech support. In those cases, when you restore your computer back to a point before the problem arose, then this should rectify the situation, and you can perform a system restore without the help of a computer repair service.
There are some problems, occasionally, that will allow you to get into Windows, but will not allow you to perform a system restore. Don’t worry. There is still something you can do without the help of professional computer support. In fact, you can still run restore through a command line. Here are the steps you can use to do this.
On the start screen, you need to access all of your apps. To do this, you can click on the down arrow near the bottom of the start screen. If you have a touch screen computer, you can do the same thing by swiping up on the start screen. Scroll through all of your apps until you find a section labeled Windows System. Here, click on Command Prompt.
When you do this, you will now have the traditional black command prompt screen open. Now, you will need to tell the computer what to do.
In the command prompt, type this exactly:
Then, hit enter. Choose Ok when asked if you want to execute the system restore command.
When you do this, the system restore wizard will open and you can follow the steps to go through the whole process. In this process, you will be asked when you want to restore your computer. There will be several points from which you could choose, so pick one that dates back to before when you started having trouble in the first place. If you aren’t sure which to choose, then the advice of a computer help service could ensure you make the right decision.
Once you have chosen a restore point, the wizard will walk you through the rest of the process. After your system is restored, then your computer should begin acting properly again.
There is a possibility you will know what caused the problem in the first place and you can just avoid making that change again. However, if you are unsure, you are going to have to do a little detective work, or you may need to contact a computer repair service. In either case, don’t install something or make any changes that were responsible for the problem in the first place. Otherwise, you will be dealing with the same issue again and again.
