You will lose all of your current settings
you might have to go into the bios to set the defaults
During the boot process you will see on the screen for a short amount of time to press a certaian key to enter setup
Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS you can load failsafe defaults or load optimized defaults ,press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart then
hope this helps

Clear BIOS/CMOS, this can either be done by way of the clear BIOS/CMOS jumper or you can remove the BIOS/CMOS battery for about a minute and then reintall it in it's correct orientation. This will set your computer to factory defaults. Will then need to enter the BIOS/CMOS by hitting the delete key during POST procedure to set the date and time for example.
All the best.

Your timeous rating of this solution is much appreciated. It's the thumbs up on the top right of this solution.
Thanks

SOURCE: Dell Dimension 1100 PC Desktop - restore to factory settings

if it comes with windows 7 or vista you can try and tap f8 until you get a boot menu and there should be an option to repair your computer, if it's windows xp you're kinda screwed unless you can access the recovery partition.

I need to restore my Acer T690 to factory setting. The acer had problem booting so I used windows XP bootable disc and it had replaced the operating system. I have recovered my data. Now I need to restore...


Assuming the Recovery Partition hasn't been disturbed, boot the machine and press ALT + F10 at the same time. You will enter a recovery phase that will give you the option of restoring to factory settings. If the Recovery Partition HAS been either disturbed or wiped out, you will not be able to restore to Factory Settings without a set of disks from Acer.

How to restore to factory


Factory restore requires the OEM restore DVD disk.

First boot the PC and press F2 during boot to enter BIOS. Change BIOS settings to factory default, to make sure the boot device sequence and all other settings are as they should be.
Then insert the Restore DVD into the DVD-rom drive and save & exit BIOS settings. It should then reboot and load from the restore disk.
