Try pressing F10 on startup, if the hard disk had not been formatted this will start the recovery.

How do I return our Dimension 5100 Dell Desktop back to it's original state? Lost the recovery CD.


Have you tried restoring your operating system to a previous restore point?
To do this click on start- all programs - accessories - system tools - system restore. Then choose a date from the calendar which corresponds to a time before you began to experience problems on your PC. Follow the on-screen instructions to restore your PC to its original state.
Note that a system restore will remove any programs which were installed AFTER the selected restore point date.
Hope this helps.
Regards,
Graemevm

Need to reboot my dell/windowsXP hard drive to factory settings


You have to put in the cd that came with your dell, then boot your computer. It will boot from the cd and give you an option to restore your factory condition. It will take around 1-2 hours for the process to complete.

Original set up


I'm not sure I understand your problem.
You want to reset your computer to factory settings? So a clean install of Windows?
If yes, tell me which Operating system you are using: XP, XP Media Center Edition, Vista...
Dell didn't deliver a Windows-disk with your system, because the installation can be done from your hard drive.
Please answer my questions and I'll help you further
