how do i factory restore a dell de051 desktop

Expert:  Anthony Brewster replied 4 years ago.
Hello, this is how you put it back to Factory Settings...

 

1) Turn on the computer.

 

2) When the Dell splash screen appears during the computer startup process, press

and hold CTRL and then press F11. Then, release both keys at the same time.

 

3) In the Dell PC Restore by Symantec window, click Restore. Alternatively, press <Tab> to highlight Restore, and then press <Enter>.

 

4) When a warning message appears stating that all data will be lost, click Confirm, or press <Tab> to highlight Confirm and then press <Enter>.

 

The Progress window will appear. Once the restore process starts, Dell PC Restore by Symantec usually takes about 8 to 10 minutes to finish.

When the restore process is complete, the following message will appear:
The system recovery process was successful.

 

5) Click Finish or press <Tab> to highlight Finish and then press <Enter> to restart the computer.

 

NOTE: You will need your Dell Disc to re-install windows if the first option does not work.

 

1) Turn on the computer

2) Start tapping/pressing F12 to get Boot Menu Options

3) Insert Dell XP Disc

4) Select DVD/CD-ROM and press enter

5) Press any key to start the installation

 

If you do not have it, call dell or order it online as its FREE and FREE shipping by FedEx.

After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents.
