Question about Dell Inspiron 6400 Notebook
Hi i'm having problems restoreing my laptop to factory settings dells website tells me to hit f7 on startup but this doesnt give me the option to restore fatory setting any help pleaseeeeeeee ??
a Dell Inspiron to the factory settings allows the user to restore the
Dell Inspiron to the original operating condition as if it was just
taken out of the box. Dell system includes a restore utility called 'Dell Symantec System Restore' to reset or restore your Dell system to factory setting.
Step 1: Before reset any Dell Inspiron laptop, backup your all important data and programs, otherwise you may lose it. It is recommended to use an external storage device for your entire data backup, so that you couldn't lose it in any sudden occurring issue...
Step 2: Remove any other unnecessary external drive and restart your Dell Inspiron laptop.
Step 3: Press 'F8' key continue until 'Advanced Boot Options' wouldn't be appear.
Step 4: Use your keyboard arrow key to select 'Repair Your Computer' from the list and hit 'Enter'.
Step 5: Now click 'Next' and login as the administrator account.
Step 6: Click 'Dell Factory Image Recovery and Data Safe options', select your language option and click 'Next'.
Step 7: Click the check box 'Yes, reformat hard drive and restore system software to factory condition' and click 'Next' to start Dell Inspiron reset process...
This process will erase all your previous changes that have been made to the Dell Inspiron laptop and reset the configuration settings to factory setting.
