Well, the easiest it to use your Dell system restore disk and just reinstall everything. That's sort of radical, though. It depends on what your problem is. Most problems can be solved by doing a system restore or addressing the problem directly.

The only other way to run the Dell System Restore is in Start -> Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools -> System Restore

This method can work if you have created Restore Points, or you can use the automatic System Checkpoints. Any dates that the system is capable of restoring to will be in bold on the calendar display after selecting "Restore my computer to an earlier time."

Im trying to restore my dell pc back to factory settings its running vista f8 is not working i can only use f2 and f12


I would recommend using the Dell factory restore DVD. It probably didn't come with your computer (companies save money by not shipping a DVD with the computer). You can order it from Dell and it will probably cost less than $20.
Many times the restore function by hitting a special function key at startup becomes corrupt and doesn't work.
I'd opt for a new DVD to use.

I need to restore the factory settings for my Dell Dimension 8770 and I do not have the cd. I do have a D: backup, but dont know how to restore from D drive. Can you help me restore to factory settings? ...


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.
Use those disks to reinstall Windows.

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.

2 WAYS

Restore default factory settings in setup - Only recover the seetings of your motherboard (date and time, pc health, etc)

Restore Software factory defaults - All hard drive is reinstalled, original software of Dell. Programs like MS Office, all of your data have to be reinserted in the computer.

I didnt understand the "over the phone".
