The best way is with the Operating system disc and do a fresh install, thus wiping all installed programs and data files.

How can I restore a Dell laptop to the factory default settings?


Here are the main steps to restore your Dell laptop to its factory settings. Depending on the model you own, the procedure may vary slightly.

Before beginning, please note that by restoring your computer to its default factory configuration, all data on the C drive will be deleted. We highly recommend backing up any personal files before moving forward with the reset.
Hard Reset Dell Laptop Restart your computer by clicking Start > arrow next to the Lock button > Restart.

As the computer restarts, press the F8 key until the Advanced Boot Options menu appears on the screen.

Note: You must press F8 before the Windows logo appears on the screen. If you press F8 after the Windows logo appears, the Advanced Boot Options menu will not appear on the screen. If you do not see the Advanced Boot Options menu, restart the computer, and then repeat this step until you see the menu on the screen.

Press the Down arrow to select the Repair Your Computer option on the Advanced Boot Options menu, and then press Enter. Select your language settings and then click Next.

Log in as an administrative user, and click OK. Then click the Dell Factory Image Restore option.

In the Dell Factory Image Restore window, click on Next. Check the box that reads Yes, reformat the hard drive and restore system software to factory conditions, followed by Next.

The computer will now restore to its default factory settings. Once the restore operation is completed, click on Finish to restart your computer.

WHAT CAN CAUSE PC RESTORE TO FAIL?
If the hidden DSR (Dell System Restore) partition is removed


If the MBR (Master Boot Record) is modified in any way (such as if you load the Vista Upgrade over XP)


If you change the MBR but the pointers to the DSR partition are left, the DSR will boot, detect that the MBR has changes, and flash a screen that informs you that the MBR has changed and that image restore will not run


If you create additional partitions, changing the MBR, Dell PC Restore will be disabled to prevent it from overwriting these partitions that may contain critical data during a restore operation


If you add a second SATA drive and migrate to a RAID array using the Intel applications accelerator in windows, running PC Restore will put the image back on C:\, but the system will not boot since the boot sector is looking for the ATA driver (factory image) and the bios is looking for the RAID driver (migrated configuration)

If any of these occur, you cannot set the system back to Factory condition. You must manually load the operating system, drivers, and all application software.

Hello, i have a dell xps m1210 laptop. i was using my computer and when i want to restore to factory settings i was using ctrl f11 combination and restoring back. but i now installed windows 7 on c drive....


No the hidden partions rely on the main partion to have some files still intact to complete a repair of the operating sytem then restores the files back to thair factory settings, to put xp back on you will need the factory recovery cd or dvd. If you buy a copy of xp and install it then ust eht recovery it should restore it to factory with drivers as well.

I have a dell xps m1210. i am doing a system restore. what will happen?


If you load a system restore point (Windows System Restore) the system will have the software settings returned to the way they were on the date the restore point was created. Any software install after that point will need to be reinstalled.

If you run a PC-Restore this RE-IMAGES the system to the way it was when it arrived from the factory. EXACTLY like it was the 1st time it was turned on. All Data files and software installed on the system will be overwritten.
