  • "You will Log-in as the "Administrator."
  • "Do not 'attempt' to do any work, while the "Restore is running!"
  • Once the [Restore is complete].
  • Click on the "Finish" button!"
!Important: "Take a 'moment to rate the help', so I can get 'credit' for the work.

Thank you!" - paul7of9

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.

How do you reset a forgotten password for dell dimension c521


I think it's F12 or F10 on boot up will restore it to factory, beware it does put all setting and folders back to factory settings to, so any data will be lost, it will be just as it came out of the box.

Hope this helps
