Try F8 or read the bottom of the screen during boot up, BIOS will usually tell you what button to push, sometimes it is "DEL" for factory restores.

My dell inspiron 1520 says ntldr is missing at startup and I'd like to know how to perform a system restore to factory default


Hi shylton45,

Welcome to FixYa! How are you doing?

You did not specify the operating system you are using, whether Windows XP, Vista, or Windows 7.

1. If your operating system is Windows XP, press CTRL and F11 key simultaneously when you see the dell logo after turning on the Laptop and follow the screen instructions.

  • Power the computer on.
  • When the Dell screen appears press and hold the CTRL and F11 key simultaneously on the keyboard, then release them both at the same time.
  • The Dell PC Restore by Symantec window appears.
  • Click the Restore button or press the Arrow key to highlight Restore and press the Enter key.
  • A caution message appears advising that all data will be lost.
  • Click the Confirm button or press the Arrow key to highlight Confirm and press the Enter key.
  • The Progress window appears. Once the process is begun, Dell PC Restore usually takes only 8 to 10 minutes to complete.
  • When the restore is complete, the message The system recovery process was successful appears.
  • Click the Finish button or press the Arrow key to highlight Finish and press the Enter key.
  • The computer will restart.

2. If your operating system is VISTA or Win 7, tap F8 key when you see the dell logo. It will take you to advanced boot menu options under which you will see Repair your Computer, Select that option and enter your password if it asked, then you will be seeing list of options like system restore, command promt, etc., In that the last option says Dell PC restore or some thing like that. Select that option and follow the screens .. Thats it.

  • Start the computer.
  • As the computer starts, press the F8 key until the Advanced Boot Options menu appears on the screen.
  • Press the Down Arrow to select Repair Your Computer on the Advanced Boot Options menu, and then press Enter.
  • Specify the language settings that you want, and then click Next.
  • Log in as a user who has administrative credentials, and then click OK.
  • Click Dell Factory Image Restore.
  • In the Dell Factory Image Restore window, click Next.
  • Click to select the check box for Yes, reformat hard drive and restore system software to factory condition.
  • Click Next. The computer is restored to the default factory configuration.
  • When the restore operation is completed, click Finish to restart the computer.

3. If in both case, the Factory default didn't work, then your laptop's factory image defaults partition have vanished (i.e. Corrupted / Deleted). So you have to do Operating System re installation with the Operating System CD / DVD shipped along with laptop.


Hope that helps. Thank you for using FixYa.

    Are you certain you need to do the factory restore?

    In order to do the factory restore you need to have a restore DVD or an uninfected partition on the hard-drive which contains the original install files

    If you can boot in safe mode, run Windows restore and be sure to select a restore point/date at which you are certain the virus was not on the PC.

    Press F8 on startup before the blue password box appears and you get the option to boot in safe mode.

    I need to reset my Dell Inspiron B130 to factory setting


    Using PC Restore in Windows XP or Media Center
    new_notice.jpg Notice: Restoring the original factory image erases ALL existing data. This includes files, folders, programs, drivers, E-mails, photos. Before performing a PC Restore, back up all personal files. If you do not back up your personal files, the data will be lost.
    1 Turn on the computer.
    2 When the Dell splash screen appears during the computer startup process, press and hold <Ctrl> and then press <F11>. Then, release both keys at the same time.
    3 In the Dell PC Restore by Symantec window, click Restore. Alternatively, press <Tab> to highlight Restore, and then press <Enter>.
    4 When a warning message appears stating that all data will be lost, click Confirm, or press <Tab> to highlight Confirm and then press <Enter>.

    The Progress window will appear. Once the restore process starts, Dell PC Restore by Symantec usually takes about 8 to 10 minutes to finish.

    When the restore process is complete, the following message will appear:
    The system recovery process was successful.
    5 Click Finish or press <Tab> to highlight Finish and then press <Enter> to restart the computer.
    The software is now installed as it was when the computer was first received.
    If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
    Thanks, Joe
