Try this:


1
Turn on the computer.

2
As the computer starts, press F8 on the keyboard until the Advanced Boot Options menu appears on the screen.
3 Select Repair Your Computer from the Advanced Boot Options menu, and then hit Enter.

4 Specify the language you want, and then click Next.

5 Log in as a user who has administrative rights, and then click OK.

6 Click Dell Factory Image Restore.

7 In the Dell Factory Image Restore window, click Next.

8 Click Yes, reformat hard drive and restore system software to factory condition check box.

9 Click Next.

10 When the restore is complete, click Finish to restart the computer.

Keep Support in the Forums

For the safety of our members, we must require that all technical support take place in the forums. This offers the opportunity for peer-review with the hope that bad advice can be corrected. Having problems and solutions publicly visible may also help someone in the future who is experiencing the same issue. As a result, we do not allow assistance to be given via email or Private Message. Due to the risks involved, we also do not allow live remote control of computers by our volunteers. If you're looking for live support, there are other (paid) sites that provide that service.
