You need the C521 recovery disk, from Dell. Set the BIOS to boot from CD and start the system.
If it gives you the option of "Complete Reinstall" or "Repair", choose Complete Reinstall.
If it does not, or if it does not work - i.e., it always reads the disk and tries to maintain as much data as it can, you need to first wipe out the hard drive; there are many "Disk Wipe" utilities out there. I'd suggest using a boot disk such as DBAN (www.dban.org).

to restore the settings you have to follow the steps

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.
