Hello and welcome to Just Answer!

You need to follow the steps given below to restore your computer to factory defaults:

1. Remove all external peripheral devices, including USB-connected devices.

2.Turn on the computer. If the computer is already on, reboot it.

3. Press and hold the "Ctrl" and "F11" keys simultaneously as soon as you restart/start the computer. The "Dell PC Restore by Symantec" window will appear. Click "Restore."

4. Click "Confirm" at the warning message stating that all data will be lost. A "Progress" window will appear. Once the installation process has finished the message, "The system recovery process was successful" will appear.

5. Click "Finish."
