Question about Dell Inspiron 1501 Notebook
When you first boot go into the bios by pressing F2 and change to boot sequence to boot off of the cd-rom. Your going to need the Dell Password override cd. Find that and stick it in the drive. Boot up the system and as soon as it says press any key to continue, press any key and it should boot up into a dell windows restore screen and it will ask you if you want to restore the laptop, choose yes and go thru the prompts and it should allow you to restore the laptop to factory defaults.
If you have problems let me know and we can try another way.

Turn Off the computer, now as soon as you hit the power button, keep on holding "Alt" key & keep on tapping "F10 key,ie: Alt+F10, it will open the recovery console ,select full factory restore and follow on screen instruction. (Note:this will erase all datas on the computer)
During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup
Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS you can load failsafe defaults or load optimized defaults ,press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart
Hope this helps
