You should have a recovery disk, just put it into the drive, restart the pc and hit F2 or Del to get into the bios, change the boot order to the CD/DVD save the settings and reboot the pc

Get your Recovery CD, and just completely reformat the hard drive, These discs should guide you threw this. If you do not have the Recovery CD's Then you may have to order them from Dell.

How do you reset a forgotten password for dell dimension c521


I think it's F12 or F10 on boot up will restore it to factory, beware it does put all setting and folders back to factory settings to, so any data will be lost, it will be just as it came out of the box.

Hope this helps

Dimension 4600 won't reset to factory settings


These model dells came with a recovery cd rather than a partition. You will need to call dell and have them send you a recovery cd and then use that disc to restore your computer to factory defaults.
