Normally when an operating system is installed, it includes a factory reset on a drive D. To see if you have one, open my computer from the menu to view available drives. D drive should say "recovery" .if it does click on it to view the drive's contents and either click on Setup.exe or something.exe and follow the prompts. If your installation did not include a recovery partition, you may be able to download the version of windows from dell using your product key, Hope this helps

How do I do a factory reset from boot up?

I had a similar problem with one of my laptops. If the hard drive has been previously wiped clean (completely formatted) then the recovery partition that is put on the laptop is deleted. This partition is what lets the computer do the factory reset. If this is the case, the only option is to use the disk that you used to install your operating system or the disk that came with your computer. If you are like me, you will have to order a recover disk from dell. Make sure the recovery disk is the disk for the operating system, not hardware.

  1. Turn on the computer.

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.
  3. Press the < Down Arrow > on the keyboard to select Repair Your Computer on the Advanced Boot Options menu, and then press < Enter >.
  4. Specify the language settings that you want, and then click Next.
  5. Log in as a user who has administrative credentials, and then click OK.
  6. Click Dell Factory Image Restore.
  7. In the Dell Factory Image Restore window, click Next.
  8. Click to select the Yes, reformat hard drive and restore system software to factory condition check box.
  9. Click Next. The computer is restored to the default factory configuration.
  10. When the restore operation is completed, click Finish to restart the computer. The software is now installed as it was when the computer was first received.
