How do you restore a Dell System to original configuration?

Many (Not all) Dell Systems (Inspiron, Dimension, Studio, XPS and Vostro) have the ability to re-image the system to it's original configuration via a process called PC-RESTORE. This process uses a hidden image on the hard drive to restore the system to the way it was the day the box was opened (IT also deletes all data added after that point in the process) Depending on the operating system, the restore process is run one of 2 ways:
  1. Windows XP, CTRL+F11 from the Dell Splash Screen
  2. Windows Vista/7 From the F8 Boot menu.
Here are a couple Dell articles on the process:

Dell inspiron n5030

Have you tried restoring the computer to the original factory configuration? If you did not have the problem when you first received the laptop, the restoration will fix it. (Page 70 of the Setup Guide -- Factory Image Restore).

If the restoration fixes it, that means that some configuration change caused the problem, most likely an update. If you keep track of future updates you can discover which one triggers the problem when it recurs.

If the restoration does not fix it and the computer did not originally have the problem, that means that a hardware problem has developed.

I want to reboot my dell 1505 inspiron laptop to factory specs. Please help.

Note: restoring your computer to its original factory settings will clear most of the data off of your hard drive, including personal files. Be sure to back up what you need.

Some computers ship without a system restore, but your computer more than likely has it.
To restore your computer to its original state, do the following:
- Make sure your computer is powered off.
- Turn on your computer, and hold the 'Ctrl' key and the 'F11' key at the same time
- When the menu appears, select 'restore'
- If your computer does not have system restore, you will not be able to / not see restore
- Confirm that you wish to restore your computer
- Your system will be reset to its original state
- When finished, select 'finish' to reboot the computer

You will have to go though some of the menus that you did when you originally had your computer. Your computer should finish restoring after these menus.

I would like to bring my dell latitude c400 back to the same state as I got it

To return it to the original configuration, use the system restore disk that should have come with the computer. It's red or maybe gray--any color but blue. The blue disks are for drivers and supplemental stuff.
Just put the restore disk in and boot from it and then follow the directions.
If you didn't get a disk from Dell, you can order one.

How do I return our Dimension 5100 Dell Desktop back to it's original state? Lost the recovery CD.

Have you tried restoring your operating system to a previous restore point?
To do this click on start- all programs - accessories - system tools - system restore. Then choose a date from the calendar which corresponds to a time before you began to experience problems on your PC. Follow the on-screen instructions to restore your PC to its original state.
Note that a system restore will remove any programs which were installed AFTER the selected restore point date.
Hope this helps.
