Getting nowhere with System Restore. Inspiron N5040 Windows 7 Home Premium

This question is answered

I bought this laptop of my nephew and I wanted everything on it to relate to me. So I decided to try and restore to Factory State. I followed all the details I printed off. I can't even get the laptop into the repair state. On the screen is the white bar "windows is loading files" then it goes blank and windows seems to be starting up but it just shuts down. I have made 3 restore discs (DVD's) and tried that. It starts to read then shuts down. I cannot even Restore to any date. I have tried to make a backup using my 16GB USB Flash Drive. Can anyone please help me with this, I have been at it now for 3 days with no prospect of winning. The Disk Management is..... OEM Partition 100MB..... OS (C) 451.01 GB......Recovery 14.65 GB. Thank you for your time.
