how do I reset my 9' mini dell to factory settings?

  • When I start my 9' mini..it goes to the screen giving me an option to go to safe mode,last known good configuration etc...if I hit last known good configuration nothing happens. or when I hit safe mode I get a scroll down screen that says "multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\windows\system32\drivers. then it freezes. I am trying to find the advanced settings but my keyboard does not have the f11 key...if anyone knows how to get around this please advise.

  • stormcloud6,

     

    Some systems like Inspiron Mini 9 (910) do not support System Restore as they do not have <F11> nor any substitute.
    If the key strokes are not working or you do not have PC Restore any more. You will have to do a manual reinstall. Click here for manual installation instructions.
