If your Dell was built after 6/04, you have a recovery partition. Press Ctrl+F11 on startup to restore the system to the way it was when delivered.

Telephone Dell, but first get the unique Dell asset-tag number from the decal on the back of the desktop. With that number, Dell will ship you a set of "System Restore" CD/DVD disks, via overnight courier.
Use those disks to reinstall Windows.

Need to reboot my dell/windowsXP hard drive to factory settings


You have to put in the cd that came with your dell, then boot your computer. It will boot from the cd and give you an option to restore your factory condition. It will take around 1-2 hours for the process to complete.

Factory restore


Who made the PC and what year?

For example the new dell systems I think everyone made after 2005, has a feature where on startup you press and hld the "F11" and it will restore an image of factory settings without the need of a disk.

If your doesn't offer this, you'll need an operating system disk, you can buy these, once bought you boot from it, we can explain how later, then basically delete the partitions and install XP or whatever operating system you decide to buy on your PC.

Before you do any of this, I would recommend buying an USB drive, or DVD RW or CD RW disk and backing up your data, I like USB cause you don't need a DVD writer, or anything like that.



Good luck!
