To get your pc back you can reset the BIOS just take out the battery on the motherboard & put it in back. That will reset the motherboard and data will not be lost.

How do i restore a inspiron b130 to factory settings


You may follow the below steps to perform a full factory restore:

Use an external hard drive to back up any important files on the computer as all of the data on the computer's hard drive will be erased during the restore process. Connect the hard drive to the computer via the USB cable and transfer any valuable photos, music, programs or documents into the hard drive's folder. Once all the files are copied into the folder, right-click on the hard drive's folder icon and choose "Eject."
  • Remove any other unnecessary hardware device cables connected to the computer as they maybe damaged when the computer is restored. Disconnect any scanners, USB drives, MP3 players, smart phones and the external hard drive.
  • Close any programs running on the computer and turn off the computer. Turn the power back on and hold down the "F8" key when the Dell logo appears on the screen to open the "Advanced Boot Options" screen. Make sure to complete this step before Windows loads.
  • Click on the "Dell Factory Image Recovery and DataSafe options" icon. Select the language settings for the computer and click "Next." Check the box for "Yes, reformat hard drive and restore system software to factory condition" and click on the "Next" button to begin the restore process. The computer will then erase the hard drive and restore the computer to the original factory condition. Press "Finish" to restart the computer with the factory settings restored.

  • Hope this helps..

    I want to restore my hp pavilion dm4 to factory settings

    Are you specifically talking about "settings" or are you wanting to restore the PC to its original factory condition? Original Factory Condition can be done with your system restore CD/DVD that you created from the restore partition or from the restore partition itself. In either instance you will lose any data stored if you choose to do an erase wich is the only option to bring it back to its original factory condition.

    You will have to get a factory restore disk and if you already have one place in the DVD or CD tray and start the computer follow the on screen instructions to restore the computer back to its original condition. Some PC's have a separate restore partition on the C:\ drive you can go to my computer and tick to open go to C:\ and see if there is a partition for this. It should say recovery or restore. If you do not have this option you may order one from the factory or go to their web site and download a copy of the original software. NOTE: people when you buy a computer and have this option to download restore disk by all means do so right away. Also store you factory disks where you will find them if ever needed.
