You have to press F11 and keep on pressing it but not hold it down. Some menu appears, wouldn't know because i got an HP but with Dells should have a menu for system restore. So just press and keep on tapping it till some bios menu appears that give you more options.

How do I factory reset my Dell latitude D510 laptop to default settings


Step 1 Disconnect any connected peripherals from your laptop. This includes USB drives, printers or external mice and keyboards. Connect the computer to only the charger and connect the charger to a wall outlet.
Step 2 Restart the computer if already turned on, or start the computer.
Step 3 Press the "Ctrl" key and "F11" key simultaneously on the keyboard when the Dell logo appears on the screen. The Dell PC Restore by Symantec window appears.
Step 4 Click the "Restore" option. A warning message appears.
Step 5 Click the "Confirm" option. Allow the computer to revert to factory settings. According to Dell, this process normally takes from eight to 10 minutes to complete; a progress bar appears showing the time until completion.
Step 6 Click "Finish" once the process completes. The computer will restart in the same state it was when you first purchased the laptop.

Cannot find the reset for my dell laqtitude laptop


Normally on a Dell Latitude it should be in this sequence,

have your computer shut down, then turn it back on as soon as you see the dell splash screen or Logo press and hold down CTRL+ F11 for at least 4-5 seconds would do, if that does not start the page giving you the option to recover your system to defaults try CTRL+E same procedure as CTRL+F11

If all else fails I suggest Calling dell for a quick info on how to do the factory defaults dell quick restoration .

  3. Immediately press the "Ctrl" key and while keeping it pressed start tapping (keep hitting) the "F11" key you should get the Restore screen with various options to restore and repair the computer.

Put recovery disk in the CD drive. On reboot, hold down F12 key. You should get a choice of drives to boot from. Make sure the first two are in the correct order:

1. CD-ROM (optical drive)
2. HDD (hard drive)

then press F10 to save and exit.

Now the laptop should boot correctly from the recovery disk.

Need to restore my laptop back to factroy setting


hi,

If you have a dell computer, you can restore your computer back to factory settings using CTRL+F11. You need to restart the computer and when you see the Dell logo. Press CTRL+F11. You will see the message "PC RESTORE"

You may reinstall your operating system using the cd if your system doesn't have the capability to restore settings to factory. You may call you computer manufacturer about it.

Keep me posted.

Thanks.
