Resetting Inspiron 620 to Factory Settings

This question is answered

Does anyone know what the magic combination of buttons are to reset my Inspiron 620 Slimtower back to factory settings?  I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit.

Any help would be appreciated.   Thanks.  ;-)

  • I do but before you do that you should probably Try to get the dell Datasafe Backup onto a 16 gig or larger usb flash drive.   F8 brings up the factory restore menu.

    DVD's are much less reliable but they too can be used.
