Thanks for using FixYa. To reset the Laptop to factory default settings you’ll need to use the Dell Factory Image Restore in Windows Vista. But please note that it will erase all existing data including files, folders, programs, drivers, photos and e-mails. Therefore, it is recommended that before you start PC restore please back up all the files to avoid loosing it. Please follow the step-by-step procedure to reset it---
Turn the Laptop on. Immediately on start before the Windows log appears press <F8> on the keyboard until the Advanced Boot Options menu appears on the screen. If you do not see the Advanced Boot Options menu then restart the computer and repeat this step until you see the menu on the screen. Now press the <Down Arrow> on the keyboard to select Repair Your Computer on the Advanced Boot Options menu, and then press <Enter>. Specify the language settings that you want 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 Yes, reformat hard drive and restore system software to factory condition check box and then click next. Now the computer is restored to the default factory configuration. When the restore operation is completed, click finish to restart the computer.
