Question about Dell Inspiron 1501 Notebook
I read the answer you had with to do this action, and I saved the "regdefault.reg" and now I am unable to do anything with it. My laptop has a problem that will not allow it to download ANYTHING and so now I dont know how to run this program to restore the laptop to factory settings. Any suggestions? Thank you so much for your time
a Dell Inspiron to the factory settings allows the user to restore the
Dell Latitude to the original operating condition as if it was just
taken out of the box. Dell system includes a restore utility called 'Dell Symantec System Restore' to reset or restore your Dell system to factory setting.
Step 1: Before reset any Dell Inspiron laptop, backup your all important data and programs, otherwise you may lose it. It is recommended to use an external storage device for your entire data backup, so that you couldn't lose it in any sudden occurring issue...
Step 2: Remove any other unnecessary external drive and restart your Dell Inspiron laptop.
Step 3: Press 'F8' key continue until 'Advanced Boot Options' wouldn't be appear.
Step 4: Use your keyboard arrow key to select 'Repair Your Computer' from the list and hit 'Enter'.
Step 5: Now click 'Next' and login as the administrator account.
Step 6: Click 'Dell Factory Image Recovery and Data Safe options', select your language option and click 'Next'.
Step 7: Click the check box 'Yes, reformat hard drive and restore system software to factory condition' and click 'Next' to start Dell Inspiron reset process...
This process will erase all your previous changes that have been made to the Dell Inspiron laptop and reset the configuration settings to factory setting.

You can run a system repair with the recovery or operating system disc to get it back to the factory settings. A repair will reset the system, and leave any of your files, pics, and programs that you've put into the machine. If you want to clear everything, and go back to the factory settings, then reformat the hard drive and install a new operating system.

Turn Off the computer, now as soon as you hit the power button, keep on holding "Alt" key & keep on tapping "F10 key,ie: Alt+F10, it will open the recovery console ,select full factory restore and follow on screen instruction. (Note:this will erase all datas on the computer)
During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain 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
Hope this helps
