Using Dell PC Restore by Symantec
NOTICE: Using Dell PC Restore permanently deletes all data on the hard drive and removes any applications or

NOTE: Dell PC Restore by Symantec is not available in all countries or on all computers.
Use Dell PC Restore by Symantec only as the last method to restore your operating system.
PC Restore restores your hard drive to the operating state it was in when you purchased the computer.
Any programs or files added since you received your computer-including data files-are permanently
deleted from the hard drive. Data files include documents, spreadsheets, e-mail messages, digital photos,
music files, and so on. If possible, back up all data before using PC Restore.
To use PC Restore:
1 Turn on the 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.
NOTICE: 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 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.

Do i press f10 on my pc to restor back to factory settings and if so ive tried this and it didnt work who can i wipe the pc back to original state.


Try CTRL F10 or ALT F10 or CTRL F11 or ALT F11. These are the typical keys used to get the hidden"Restore Partition" to boot to a menu that can help you backup, repair or restore to factory-delivered state. NOTE, restoring to a Factory Delivered State will WIPE OUT ALL YOUR DATA AND ANY APPLICATIONS YOU HAVE INSTALLED SINCE YOU GOT THE COMPUTER. THIS MAY include email in Outlook, Outlook Express, other non-web based email programs.
Also, not all computers come with the hidden restore partition, and you may have to find your collection of factory D's to do this.
