I had to do a factory reset on my dell dimension 4600 and i managed to get windows xp working but i cant get the internet to work. i cant get it to find my bt home hub it is wired with an ethernet cable...


Use whatever computer you are using to reach FixYa.com to go to Dell.com, and click support. If the 2 computers are in different locations, write down the Service Tax number off the back of the dell, and take it with you. Also take a thumb drive with you that has at least 1 GB of free space. On the Dell Support page, type in the service tag number, and hit enter. Tell it you want drivers & downloads Tell it what version of windows you are using From the files selected, download all of them. Put them all on your thumb drive. Take the thumb drive to your Dell. Insert the thumb drive. Install the drivers one by one until one of them makes your network card work.

Restore Dell Dimension 2350 PC Desktop to factory settings


Hi there,

If you have not reinstalled you OS yet you can still set the pc to factory settings using a couple of keystrokes. Turn off you pc. When you turn on the pc hold CTRL button and tap F11 this will open the Dell pc restore option. Just follow the wizard and it will set the pc to factory settings. Warning, this will delete you files. If it does not work, you may need to do it the long way using the setup CD's that came with it.

Hello. I want to restore my Dell Dimension 4300 to original factory settings


press the 'ctrl' and F11 when the blue bar w/the dell.com appears. Inside the Dell PC Restore Partition Dell has supplied the user with a backup image made at the factory, and this backup is stored in the DSR partition. It is this backup that is restored from when the Ctrl+F11 keys are pressed.

Dimension 4600 won't reset to factory settings


These model dells came with a recovery cd rather than a partition. You will need to call dell and have them send you a recovery cd and then use that disc to restore your computer to factory defaults.

Dimension 4600 won't reset to factory settings


First, if you have any data on the machine you want, I'd back it up to a USB flash/thumb drive.
Then, assuming you purchased the machine new, you should have the maroon/silver "Recovery Disk". Pop that in the CD, and restart the machine. Press F12 to select BOOT OPTIONS. Select CD Hit Enter. This should start the Dell Recovery process. If you do not have the Rec. CD, contact Dell. They should be able to provide you the org. software - for a small fee of course.

Factory Restore


Hi,

Have you tried using another keyboard? if that doesnt work, try hitting the pause/break button on your keyboard and you should notice that your screen will be stuck on the dell logo with the bar going across, once you notice that hold down ctrl and hit f11. that should work..

Let me know what happens, alright?
