How to restore Dell XPS 15z to factory defaults?

This question is answered

Hello,

Even though XPS 15z is a good laptop, it's preloaded with lot of junk software. If I restore the system to factory defaults, is it going to restore the system with junk software again? A couple of years back, when I restore the Dell Inspiron 15 laptop, it didn't load any additional software.

Is Dell provides any tool to install system drivers automatically without manual installation? Any further help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

  • Back up the C:\dell directory.  All drivers are in there.

  • So it's still going to reload the "junk" software again!, right? I try to do a clean installation, but when I look for drivers it shows several drivers in the same section.

  • If you've already started a clean install, the quick restore is gone anyway.

  • I'm not at started the clean install. I'm trying to find and save all required drivers into a DVD before committing to clean install.

  • Back up the C:\dell directory.  All drivers are in there.

  • I'm just wondering myself how I missed that! Thanks!!!
