Dell laptops usually have an iso partition on the hard drive that you access during boot. If so, when you see the blue bar at the top that says www.dell.com, press ctrl+F11 immediately. That should take you to the restore partition where you can re-install all the factory installed software like when it came from dell new. If you wait too long, you'll have to wait for boot and then restart and try again. You may have to do a cold boot (power off and on) If there is no blue bar when you first turn it on, then the iso partition is gone.

How to reset settings


A persistent operating system error on your Dell Inspiron 1525 laptop requires more than just a system restore as there is a problem with a driver that a system restore cannot correct.


A full factory reset of the laptop wipes the hard drive clear of all data including existing driver settings and programs and installs the original operating system back to the hard drive.


Once cleared, previous computer files and programs are non-recoverable.


Press "Power" on the Inspiron 1525, and continuously press "F8" on the keyboard when the Dell logo appears on the laptop's screen.


Press the down arrow to highlight "Repair Your Computer," and press "Enter" to select the highlighted onscreen option.


Click your preferred keyboard layout, and click "Next" to continue with the laptop's restoration process.


Type "administrator" in the username field, click "OK" and click "Dell Factory Tools."


Click "Dell Factory Image Restore," and click "Next." Click the checkbox next to the hard drive reformat confirmation, and click "Next."


Click "Finish" to reboot the OS after the restore process finishes, which can take up to 10 minutes.


Hope this helps.

Stuck in start up repair 1525


Try the next oldest restore point until the issue is resolved. Any software installed after the selected restore point needs to be reinstalled.
If system restore still doesn't work, run the "Pre-Boot System Assessment (PSA) Diagnostics and Error Codes For Dell Computers", you may click the link below to go directly to the support site, it contains instructions in running PSA Diagnostics and Error Code List with possible fixes.

How do a complete factory restore on dell inspiron 1525 when after f8 it says unable to locate file?


Dell.com supply "rescue disks" as do many sites on the net. I think that is possibly the only way to go.
Errors on the hard drive possibly caused the error in the file system, or the master file table has been corrupted.
Hope it helps.

I would like to reset my laptop to its factory settings but dont know how. I tried F8 key and also F11 CTRL but nothings seems to work. Its a Dell ispiron 1525.


Hi,
To restore your laptop back to factory defaults you will need the restore cds that were supplied with your laptop.
Insert the cd (or the firs if is more than one) and restart your laptop.
When the message appears "Press any key to boot from cd" press enter and follow the wizard to reinstall the operating system and restore your laptop.
Please note that you should backup any data that you would like to keep before the above procedure.
