if your referring to original setting, then you need to do factory reset using your oem recovery disk. if you edited it afterwards and you want to retain your own settings i doubt if its possible unless you have restore point save in disk or image of the hard disk

Factory settings required

Telephone Dell. For a small fee, they will ship you a complete set of "System Restore" CD/DVD disks, to match the Operating System that was factory-installed on your computer.

Or, look on the C: drive for a utility that can "burn" a new set of "System Recovery" disks.
