How to reset settings


A persistent operating system error on your Dell Inspiron 1525 laptop requires more than just a system restore as there is a problem with a driver that a system restore cannot correct.


A full factory reset of the laptop wipes the hard drive clear of all data including existing driver settings and programs and installs the original operating system back to the hard drive.


Once cleared, previous computer files and programs are non-recoverable.


Press "Power" on the Inspiron 1525, and continuously press "F8" on the keyboard when the Dell logo appears on the laptop's screen.


Press the down arrow to highlight "Repair Your Computer," and press "Enter" to select the highlighted onscreen option.


Click your preferred keyboard layout, and click "Next" to continue with the laptop's restoration process.


Type "administrator" in the username field, click "OK" and click "Dell Factory Tools."


Click "Dell Factory Image Restore," and click "Next." Click the checkbox next to the hard drive reformat confirmation, and click "Next."


Click "Finish" to reboot the OS after the restore process finishes, which can take up to 10 minutes.


Hope this helps.

How do I restore factory settings on my dell inspiron mini 1012?


  1. Restoring a Dell System Running Windows XP.

    Turn off and reboot your computer. When you see the Windows flash screen, depress "CTRL" and "F11". Be sure to press them simultaneously and release them simultaneously.

    Select "Restore" in the "Dell PC to restore by Symantec" window and press "Enter".

    Highlight and select "Confirm" when the message shows that you wiill lose all data if you continue. This will begin the restore process. It usually takes about 10 minutes or so. When it's done, you should receive a message that states the system recovery process was successful.

    Select "Finish" to complete the process and restart your system.
  2. Step 6 Restore a Dell System Running Windows Vista

    Shutdown and restart your computer. Keep pressing "F8" until you see the "Advanced Boot Options" menu. You must depress the keys before the Windows Logo screen appears. If you wait until after the screen appears and then press "F8", it's too late and you'll have to reboot the system and try again.

    Navigate to the "Repair your computer" option

    Select the appropriate language and click "Next".

    Sign onto the system as an administrator. Without administrative privileges, you will be unable to perform the system restore.

    Select "Dell Factory Image Restore" and click "Next".

    Place a check in the check box next to the text that says "Yes, reformat hard drive and restore System Software to factory condition" and click "Next".

    Click "Finish" to complete the process. This will reboot your computer.

Put recovery disk in the CD drive. On reboot, hold down F12 key. You should get a choice of drives to boot from. Make sure the first two are in the correct order:

1. CD-ROM (optical drive)
2. HDD (hard drive)

then press F10 to save and exit.

Now the laptop should boot correctly from the recovery disk.

This sounds like the hard drive is failing. At this point you will need to run a system repair with your recovery or operating system disc. If the repair doesn't take, then reformat the hard drive and install a new operating system. If you have any issues during or after the format or install, then the hard drive has failed and will need to be replaced.
