Question about Dell Inspiron 1525 Notebook
Hi and welcome to FixYa!
This can be done, but remember when you factory reset a computer, all files and pictures you have saved on your computer will be wiped clean and cannot be recovered. This is permanent. I am providing a link for you to follow steps to fully restore your computer the way it was when you bought it. There is also a manual in a link on the page for your Dell 1525 that shows how to restore if you have XP or Vista.
I have performed this on other computer models/makes and it may take a few tries, but it does work. Good luck!

Tips for a great answer:
This restores the PC to the condition it was in when the Complete Backup was made. If a Complete Backup was never made, this can still be used to restore the PC to its initial status. (Out of the Box condition)
Warning: A Complete restore erases all current files, settings, programs and other data and replaces them with the files, settings, programs and other data contained in the Complete Backup. In other words, it restores your computer to the way it was when you made the Complete Backup. Also, note that any programs installed after the Complete Backup will still need to be reinstalled.
To perform a Complete Restore, follow these steps:
Important: Make sure you have power connected to the PC. If power is lost during a restore, you need to start the process again from the beginning.
Warning: If you have data on drive C that you do not want to lose, stop now and perform a Data Backup.
Note: You will need to perform an additional restart for Windows to apply its changes.
