I want to take my DELL Studio 1558 Laptop and restore it to the factory settings (like when I originally got it) because of all the junk & such I've got on there. I'm running windows 7, and whenever I boot up F8 and F12 do nothing but freeze it up. If anybody has any suggestions, it'd be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
