1. Restart the computer

2. As the computer restarts, press the F8 key until the Advanced Boot Options menu appears on the screen.
Note: You must press F8 before the Windows logo appears on the screen. If you press F8 after the Windows logo appears, the Advanced Boot Options menu does not appear on the screen. If you do not see the Advanced Boot Options menu, restart the computer, and then repeat this step until you see the menu on the screen.
3. Press the Down arrow to select Repair Your Computer on the Advanced Boot Options menu, and then press Enter.


4. Specify the language settings that you want, and then click Next.
5. Log in as a user who has administrative privileges and click OK.
6. Click Dell Factory Image Restore.
7. In the Dell Factory Image Restore window, click Next.
8. Check the box saying Yes, reformat the hard drive and restore system software to factory conditions.
9. Click Next. The computer is restored to the default factory configuration.
10. When the restore operation is completed, click Finish to restart the computer.
