Dell factory is on the D: partion. With Vista power on and immediately start taping on the F8 key and do the system restore or marked Dell factory restore. ON XP system power on > hold the Ctrl key down and tap on the F11 key and same as the instructions above If the system demands for an admin password try just clicking on Enter.. or try your user name and logon.

How do i restore my dell latitude c600 to its factory settings


The Dell Latitude C600 is an older Dell laptop computer. This particular model came with Windows XP pre-installed on it. If you are experiencing problems with your computer, or you want a fresh start with your Dell, you can restore the laptop to factory settings. This process removes all of the data saved on your computer and resets all of the settings back to the way they were when you first purchased the computer.

Instructions:

Step 1
Turn off your computer if it is currently on.
Step 2
Turn on your computer. When the Dell splash screen appears, hold down "CTRL" and "F11" on your keyboard. Release both keys at the same time.
Step 3
Click "Restore" in the "Dell PC Restore by Symantec" window. Click "Confirm" when you are warned that all data will be lost.
Step 4
Allow the system to restore and wait for the message that says "The system recovery process was successful." This can take about 8 to 10 minutes.
Step 5
Click the "Finish" button and your Dell Latitude D600 is restored to factory settings.

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.

I can not restore my inspiron 2650 to its fatory settings


There are several ways to restore your Dell PC to factory settings.
Are you looking to just undo something that happened a day or two ago and not loose any data?
You can try the windows system restore.
Start>Programs>Accessories>System Tools>System Restore.
The other option is to back up your data and pics then while your laptop is booting up hit Shift and F11 repeatly and follow the dell system restore prompts.

How to reset the Dell D531 laptop


Hello,

The easiest way to reset your Dell is to use the system restore function:

Start>Programs>Accesories>System Tool> System Restore.

You can chose to restore to an eailer setting or create a new one. If you want to completly restore the system, use the operating system disk that came with your notebook to restore your os without deleting all your data.

Good Luck

How do you reset to factory settings on a Dell Latitude D510 laptop without discs?


Only way to do this would be to do a "system restore" without disks you can only hope you have restore points setup... run system restore from control panel and find out..

if no restore points contact dell for a restore disk.. remember the system restore without disks will not remove viruses or other harmful files..

Restore factory settings


sir windows NT does no provide a factory settings... best solution is to overwrite the OS with the same OS... to do so first backups your files and check for some restoration points on your system restore settings....

click the window button, press all programs then accessories then system tools...

if there is an oldest restore point choose it..

after restoring your system to the oldest settings... put the OS cd and let it autorun...

choose the overwrite the present OS or something like that... after reinstalling you will see all default settings and programs back where you want them.
