Unable to restore insiron 1720 laptop to factory settings

This question is not answered

Hi everyone!

I have a Dell Inspiron 1720 with Windows Vista operating system.  I m having loads of issues with the laptop so i want to restore the laptop to the original factory settings.  This is where the issue begins, i dont have an original restore point to restore it to.  So i was hoping someone could tell me if it is possible to restore it without a factory restore point.

If anyone could give me some advice i would be so grateful.

Thanks Ahmer

  • There is no system restore point for the factory settings. You have to boot to the vista dvd and start the factory restore from there. Factory Restore (PC Restore) is an image file on a hidden partition on your hard drive. Directions are HERE.

  • Thanks a lot hopefully i can get this to work.

    Thanks again
