If you have a restore partiton Reboot the computer and press ALT +F11 at the Dell Boot Spash Screen. Follow the onscreen prompts.

Restore Dell Dimension 2350 PC Desktop to factory settings


Hi there,

If you have not reinstalled you OS yet you can still set the pc to factory settings using a couple of keystrokes. Turn off you pc. When you turn on the pc hold CTRL button and tap F11 this will open the Dell pc restore option. Just follow the wizard and it will set the pc to factory settings. Warning, this will delete you files. If it does not work, you may need to do it the long way using the setup CD's that came with it.

    I need to restore the factory settings for my Dell Dimension 8770 and I do not have the cd. I do have a D: backup, but dont know how to restore from D drive. Can you help me restore to factory settings? ...


    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.

    What is setting the pc back to factory settings mean?


    2 WAYS

    Restore default factory settings in setup - Only recover the seetings of your motherboard (date and time, pc health, etc)

    Restore Software factory defaults - All hard drive is reinstalled, original software of Dell. Programs like MS Office, all of your data have to be reinserted in the computer.

    I didnt understand the "over the phone".

    See ya
