    While the computer starts, press the F8 key, until the Advanced Boot Options menu appears
    Using the ↓ Down Arrow , select Repair Your Computer and press Enter
    Select your language and click Next
    Log in as an Administrative user, and click OK
    Click Dell Factory Image Restore from the System Recovery Options
    From the Dell Factory Image Restore window, click Next
    Click the check box that says: Yes, reformat hard drive and restore system software to factory
    condition
    Click Next. Wait while your computer is restored to the default factory configuration
    Once the restoration has completed, Click Finish
