    do you mean the operating system or the bios?

    If you want to put the operating system (Windows XP/Vista) back to an earlier state, you'll either have to do a system restore or restore a previous image (certain makes provide a rescue image on cd).

    You need to tell us the make and model m8, some you can start off the process with the backup cd's some you press a F key while turning on the PC to enter the restore mode as the recovery will be hidden on the hard drive.

    When the PC is starting up and on the Dell logo hit F11 , and follow the instructions for system restore, this will take it back to how it was when you first got it.

    I would backup all data and important and programs etc before you do this tho as it will all be lost

    Heres the manual for the PC http://support.euro.dell.com/support...N/SM/index.htm

    If you just want to take it back to an earlier time then use system restore, this wont loose any data, i presume you have XP , i cant remember how to get to it as i have Vista, i think its start,system setting, system restore
