System restore does not work RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have been using a Dell Dimension XPS Gen 3 amongst my 5 computers in the library--two years ago system restore stopped working on this unit--after several months the HD quit so I had another installed--BUT--system restore still does not work--when I click on the function, I'm taken to the familiar calendar with highlighted restore points--no matter which one I click on (and on several occasions I've serially clicked on every one displayed), the unit goes thru the standard machinations but when it restarts a screen comes up that tells me the unit could not be restored to the point requested and that no changes were made to the computer--clicking OK returns me to the standard desktop view--I have 12% (57,000 MB) of the 465 G HD dedicated to system restore--I've even created restore points, then tried to access them but I get the same unsuccessful result--I am running XP Professional 32 bit OS with Pentium 4 CPU 3.60 GHz, 1.0 G RAM--HELP...
