Do a system restore with the system and driver cd's that came with the computer. It will delete everything that is on the drive and restore it like new. If you added any new cards ( graphic ) or any different hardware that the pc came with, remove first, then boot from cd to reinstall windows and drivers. Then reinstall any hardware that might have been added. Also, disconnect any USB plug like printer or scanner. Just have mouse,keyboard, monitor attached.

Reset to factory settings


If the system has the original Dell image, then just after the Dell Bios splash screen should be a black screen with w blue bar at the top with www.dell.com at the top.

At that screen press CTRL + F11 to initiate the PC Restore program.
