Well, you can enter to the computer in "safe mode" by using(inserting) a cd with the Knoppix operative system, to recover your important files, when finished, extract the cd, and then, you must give format (reinstall operative system) to your computer. Any doubts feel free to give details or ask. Regards!

If you are just wanting to restore the machine to a factory state you can follow these instructions according to the manual which can be found at http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/ins2200/en/om/D88330a.pdf

To use PC Restore:

1 Turn on the computer.
During the boot process, a blue bar with www.dell.com appears at the top of the screen.

2 Immediately upon seeing the blue bar, press <Ctrl><F11>.
If you do not press <Ctrl><F11> in time, let the computer finish restarting, and then
restart the computer again.

NOTICE: If you do not want to proceed with PC Restore, click Reboot in the following step.

3 On the next screen that appears, click Restore.

4 On the next screen, click Confirm.
The restore process takes approximately 6–10 minutes to complete.

5 When prompted, click Finish to reboot the computer.
NOTE: Do not manually shut down the computer. Click Finish and let the computer completely reboot.

6 When prompted, click Yes.
The computer restarts. Because the computer is restored to its original operating state, the
screens that appear, such as the End User License Agreement, are the same ones that
appeared the first time the computer was turned on.

7 Click Next.
The System Restore screen appears and the computer restarts.

8 After the computer restarts, click OK.

If you need the actual disk, you can check your warranty here http://support.dell.com/support/topics/global.aspx/support/my_systems_info/details?c=us&l=en&s=gen by entering your service tag from the side of the machine. If its in warranty you should be able to get a new set shipped to you.

If not, you can contact Dell here http://support.dell.com/support/topics/global.aspx/support/dellcare/contact_technical_support?c=us&l=en&s=gen and asking for information on replacement disc for your model.

I hope this helps. Please remember to rate this information.

The battery is located on the mother board. It is about the size of a nickle. Some batteries are located in odd places and you may not see it right away, but it will be there. Most likely it will be a 2032 battery available in most drugstores or computer shops.

If you want to keep your OS and data safe then they best way to fix this issue by taking the motherboard backup battery out and put it back using following steps:You need to open the lower black panel apart for this you can follow the online YouTube tutorials. Once panel is taken apart then you will see a small battery cell connected with 2 red and black wires via jack. Take this jack off to disconnect the battery for about 10 mins then put it back and try turning on your pc. This shall reset your BIOS passwords etc and then you would be able to login in to your PC.

It might be one of your Function (F) keys. mine is F12, it should have an image of an antenna or something of that sort. You may have a slide switch on one of the sides.
