If it comes with windows 7 or vista you can try and tap f8 until you get a boot menu and there should be an option to repair your computer, if it's windows xp you're kinda screwed unless you can access the recovery partition.

If you are running Windows XP do a system restore. But BEWARE. You will lose everything you have installed since you started operating.

SOURCE: CD RESTORE DELL DIMENSION 1100

La mejor manera de hacer esto es reinstalar el sistema operativo entero del rasguño. No hay restablecimiento de la PC para este sistema ni pudo ser dañado muy probablemente ya si usted tenía uno. Para probar, presionar ALT+F11 cuando usted enciende la computadora en la insignia del dell. Si esto no trabaja, usted necesitará insertar el CD de la reinstalación de Windows en la impulsión y cambiar formato su sistema entero y comenzar del rasguño. Después eso. usted necesitará instalar los conductores y las utilidades para el sistema del dimensiono.

SOURCE: how can i restore factory setting with my dell

Most newer computer do not include any media disc for the purpose of restoration. This is for a couple reasons first it cuts down on the cost of the computer and second it cut down on piracy or in other words taking those media discs and installing them on another computer.

However Dell as well as many other computer manufactures use another method that will allow you to restore your computer back to the way it came out of the box.
At the end I included a couple links.
The first one is your "Owner's Manual". You can find all these steps in this manual as well.


The second are other documents relating to your xps400.


Good Luck and I hope this helps.

To restore your PC to factory settings:

Warning: Anything you added to your system after you purchased it will be deleted. The only way to recover those files and programs are to back them up. I would advise you to get some CD/DVDs and back everything up just to be on the safe side.



  1. Turn on you computer. During the boot process, a blue bar with www.dell.com appears at the top of the screen.
  2. Immediately upon seeing the blue bar, press <Ctrl><F11>. (If you do not press <Ctrl><F11> in time, let the computer finish starting, and then restart the computer again). If you do not want to proceed with PC Restore, click Reboot in the following step
  3. On the next screen that appears, click Restore.
  4. On the next screen, click Confirm. The restore process takes approximately 6–10 minutes to complete.
  5. When prompted, click Finish to reboot the computer. NOTE: Do not manually shut down the computer. Click Finish and let the computer completely reboot.
  6. When prompted, click Yes. The computer restarts. Because the computer is restored to its original operating state, the screens that appear, such as the End User License Agreement, are the same ones that appeared the first time the computer was turned on.
  7. Click Next. The System Restore screen appears and the computer restarts.
  8. After the computer restarts, click OK.

Telephone Dell, but first get the unique Dell asset-tag number from the decal on the back of the desktop. With that number, Dell will ship you a set of "System Restore" CD/DVD disks, via overnight courier.

How do i restore my dell dimension c521 to the way


This is done 1 of three ways depending on how your restore information is stored. 1. After you push the power button start pushing the F8 key and when you get the option screen select restore to previous or restore to factory settings. This method works if your system has a special restore partition still. If you received System Restore Disk insert the CD in the CD player and reboot the system. It will boot from the CD and present the Restore menu for you to make a selection from. Your third choice is to select System restore from the system tools sub menu under the Accessories menu in your program list and chose to restore to factory settings.
