Telephone Dell, but first get the unique Dell asset-tag number from the decal on the back of the desktop. With that number, Dell will ship you a set of "System Restore" CD/DVD disks, via overnight courier.
Use those disks to reinstall Windows.

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.

How do i restore my dell dimension c521 to the way


This is done 1 of three ways depending on how your restore information is stored. 1. After you push the power button start pushing the F8 key and when you get the option screen select restore to previous or restore to factory settings. This method works if your system has a special restore partition still. If you received System Restore Disk insert the CD in the CD player and reboot the system. It will boot from the CD and present the Restore menu for you to make a selection from. Your third choice is to select System restore from the system tools sub menu under the Accessories menu in your program list and chose to restore to factory settings.

I would like to reset my laptop to its factory settings but dont know how. I tried F8 key and also F11 CTRL but nothings seems to work. Its a Dell ispiron 1525.


Hi,
To restore your laptop back to factory defaults you will need the restore cds that were supplied with your laptop.
Insert the cd (or the firs if is more than one) and restart your laptop.
When the message appears "Press any key to boot from cd" press enter and follow the wizard to reinstall the operating system and restore your laptop.
Please note that you should backup any data that you would like to keep before the above procedure.

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.
