Restart the laptop... as soon as you see the big blue DELL screen hold ctrl and press F11.

if done right, this should bring up the dell restore utility, just follow the prompts. takes maybe 15 minutes.

How do i restore a inspiron b130 to factory settings


Hello,

You may follow the below steps to perform a full factory restore:

Use an external hard drive to back up any important files on the computer as all of the data on the computer's hard drive will be erased during the restore process. Connect the hard drive to the computer via the USB cable and transfer any valuable photos, music, programs or documents into the hard drive's folder. Once all the files are copied into the folder, right-click on the hard drive's folder icon and choose "Eject."
  • Remove any other unnecessary hardware device cables connected to the computer as they maybe damaged when the computer is restored. Disconnect any scanners, USB drives, MP3 players, smart phones and the external hard drive.
  • Close any programs running on the computer and turn off the computer. Turn the power back on and hold down the "F8" key when the Dell logo appears on the screen to open the "Advanced Boot Options" screen. Make sure to complete this step before Windows loads.
  • Click on the "Dell Factory Image Recovery and DataSafe options" icon. Select the language settings for the computer and click "Next." Check the box for "Yes, reformat hard drive and restore system software to factory condition" and click on the "Next" button to begin the restore process. The computer will then erase the hard drive and restore the computer to the original factory condition. Press "Finish" to restart the computer with the factory settings restored.

  • Hope this helps..

    I am trying to restore my inspiron b 130 in factory settings however the instructions i have are turn on computer start pushing f8 to advanced boot options then repair your computer to dell factory...


    When its a computer that is using the windows XP you wont have that option .. Its a different option to restore to the factory settings

    Use the following things
    Dell has a default partition on the computer and you can install with the same..
    If you have windows vista on the computer then tap F8 when the computer turns on and then you will be able to see the advanced boot options.. Select repair my computer.. In the repair my computer screen select the dell factory image restore...
    Your computer will go through the installation and it will be up and running...
    If you have windows Xp then you have to turn on the computer and when the dell logo appears you have to simultaneously press control and the F11key.. You will be able to reinstall the OS in this way..


    If you are not able to get into this option then there might be no restore partition availlable
    In that case you have to reinstall using the disc

    I need to reset my Dell Inspiron B130 to factory setting


    Using PC Restore in Windows XP or Media Center
    new_notice.jpg Notice: Restoring the original factory image erases ALL existing data. This includes files, folders, programs, drivers, E-mails, photos. Before performing a PC Restore, back up all personal files. If you do not back up your personal files, the data will be lost.
    1 Turn on the computer.
    2 When the Dell splash screen appears during the computer startup process, press and hold <Ctrl> and then press <F11>. Then, release both keys at the same time.
    3 In the Dell PC Restore by Symantec window, click Restore. Alternatively, press <Tab> to highlight Restore, and then press <Enter>.
    4 When a warning message appears stating that all data will be lost, click Confirm, or press <Tab> to highlight Confirm and then press <Enter>.

    The Progress window will appear. Once the restore process starts, Dell PC Restore by Symantec usually takes about 8 to 10 minutes to finish.

    When the restore process is complete, the following message will appear:
    The system recovery process was successful.
    5 Click Finish or press <Tab> to highlight Finish and then press <Enter> to restart the computer.
    The software is now installed as it was when the computer was first received.
    If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
    Thanks, Joe

    Master Reset


    That wont restore the function to your n key, it needs a new keyboard. If you dont use it as a portable then you can buy a cheap USB keyboard from your local computer shop and it will work fine. If you really want to restore it then most Dells use the F11 key at the Dell splash screen at boot time
