You will need a windows CD. It can be what ever windows you would like. I highly recommend Windows 7.

Put this disk into the drive, restart the computer and you must have it boot from the DVD-Drive. You are looking for a boot menu when you computer first starts up. When you finally get it to boot, follow the instructions and you will wat to "format" your drive.

PLEASE NOTE, this will delete everything on your computer and make it like its fresh out of the box. Please backup everything you want to save! This is mostly documents, Music, Pictures, videos, bookmarks, settings etc.

Can I format this back to original factory settings without a CD?


The only way you cna restore the Dell back to the original settings is to use the Dell recovery CD for your model Dell.
You can get one from the Dell WEB site.

You can download the device drivers from Dell WEB site,the support download page. Make sure you select your model desktop or laptop,better still, type in the Service Tag number, it is printed on the label on thebottom of the laptop and on the back or sides of a desktop. (If the Service Taglabel is missing then go into the BIOS setting and on one of the BIOS pages,the Service Tag number will be displayed). This will open the page where thespecific drivers for your model computer are located. Also make sure you selectthe Windows of the drivers for your Windows operating system. Click on thislink to download the drivers: - http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/index.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen

To restore the computer to the Original Factory settings perform the following steps:

Turn on the laptop
The moment you see the Dell Logo, Press the Ctrl Key and start tapping the F11 key. You will get a screen which will give you options to restore the computer. Select the option which says Restore to Original Factory Settings. It will run the restore and your computer will be restored to Factory setting within 15 - 20 minutes.

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.
