Trying to do a factory restall of Dell demnension 2400

I have a dell dimension 2400 computer. Back when I bought it from a rent to orwn store they gave me a 3 1/2 floppy disk called area 51 and was told it would redo my computer to its factory state when i needed it to. Well now im trying to and the disk doesnt work or the floppy disk drive is broke. But my question is, is there another way to do it without the floppy disk? I went to dell website and all they could tell me was to reboot and on the dell flash screen press ctrl and f11, i did and it doesnt do anything either. Thanks for any help.

Typically you don't need to press ctrl at all -- usually f11 does the trick -- or going into accessories and system tools and looking for factory restore or something similar, the program has different names depending on the manufacturer. System Restore will only bring it back to a previous date...

My Dell Dimension 2400 has stopped working - how do i restore the factory settings ?


Hello,

It appears your model Dell 2400 should have been supplied with the CD's for reinstalling Windows XP, CD will be green or blue in color and the drivers and applications that came with the computer.

If so, back up your files first to an external drive and then put the CD in the CD drive and reboot the computer. It should come up to reinstall XP.

If good to go, you will be prompted to install the second Cd as well as online XP updates.
Software that was installed after you bought the computer also wouyld have to be reinstall as well as restoring your backed up file.

Rememberm all data is lost when you reinstall your operating system, unless these is a choice on install that may ask for destructive, or non-destrutive (keeps files).

I am attaching a link to Dell for your to copy and paste into your web browser for the support page for drivers and user guide in the event you need to reveiw the process.

On the back of your dell is a service tag. Copy it down and go to ww.dell.com and Support and drivers, input your service tag and it will give you the original configuration of hardware and software installed on your computer.
