How do I put my computer back to manufacture way

Dell does not provide a recovery CD set that will simply restore your computer to the original factory default. You will have to start by reinstalling the OS, then installing the drivers and software. This process will take some time. Be sure you backup your files before you start the process. Dell may offer a cost related option to restore your computer for you. Check with them on this possibility.
