I have tried f8 and Cnrt+f11. None of them has the repair or restore option. Is this normaI? can't think of any other way.

Press and hold F8 on boot when the options show, choose repair computer,
then choose Factory Image restore, say yes to reformating the hard drive, when the computer reboots it will ask you to set up the computer again like it did the first time you done it,
I hope this helps

a Dell Inspiron to the factory settings allows the user to restore the
Dell Inspiron to the original operating condition as if it was just
taken out of the box. Dell system includes a restore utility called 'Dell Symantec System Restore' to reset or restore your Dell system to factory setting.
Step 1: Before reset any Dell Inspiron laptop, backup your all important data and programs, otherwise you may lose it. It is recommended to use an external storage device for your entire data backup, so that you couldn't lose it in any sudden occurring issue...
Step 2: Remove any other unnecessary external drive and restart your Dell Inspiron laptop.
Step 3: Press 'F8' key continue until 'Advanced Boot Options' wouldn't be appear.
Step 4: Use your keyboard arrow key to select 'Repair Your Computer' from the list and hit 'Enter'.
Step 5: Now click 'Next' and login as the administrator account.
Step 6: Click 'Dell Factory Image Recovery and Data Safe options', select your language option and click 'Next'.
Step 7: Click the check box 'Yes, reformat hard drive and restore system software to factory condition' and click 'Next' to start Dell Inspiron reset process...
This process will erase all your previous changes that have been made to the Dell Inspiron laptop and reset the configuration settings to factory setting.

The trick is in the timing of simultaneously pressing Ctrl-F11. I too was unable to get restore screen for a while. It turned out my timing was off as to when exactly to press the key combination. Reboot laptop. Wait until just after you see the F2/F12 screen; immediately after that, for a short 2-3 seconds, you will see just a black screen with ONLY the Dell blue banner at the top. IT IS IMPORTANT TO PRESS CTRL-F11 NOW, DURING THIS SHORT TIME! Then, you will be presented with the Dell/Symantic Restore screen. I hope this benefits someone. Arnster
