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..

    How do i restore factory settings for inspiron 2650

    Usually when you purchase a new computer, it will come with a set of CD's such as a Factory restore CD. But if not, some computers will come with an additional parsed section on your HD dedicated for restoring your computer. You can see if your computer has the additional drive by opening My Computer and it should say something along the lines of Restore, Factory Restory, Factory Backup etc.

    But then also, some computers don't come with anything at all which can be very annoying.

    Reply with what you find and I can help you more after I have additional information.
