Dell Inspiron 1520 running Windows 7 reset to factory settings???

This question is not answered

Howdy everyone! I have a Dell Laptop, Inspiron 1520, I loaded Windows 7 on it but I really desperately need to restore to factory settings! How am I supposed to do that?

I hit F8 during the start up screen, but in comes the procedure for a computer that naturally came with Windows 7... I really have no idea what I am supposed to do :(

  • Hi CarpeDemon,

    Welcome to the Community. While loading windows 7 if you have deleted the restore partion,you wont be able to use the option to restore your system to factory settings.

    However if have not deleted the restore partion, you can use the link below for help to restore system to factory settings.

    Check for PC restore in the link.

    Hope this helps.

    Thank You
