I have a Dell Latitude D600 which i bought a few months ago second hand, It came with charger and thats it. No recovery disk or nothing. Laptop worked perfect and is a really good laptop. However I have so many viruses on my laptop, I have ran all types of AVG's, adware scanners, and much more. Its cleared alot of the viruses but still the laptop is not working properly.
I would like to restore the laptop back to its factory settings, i have backed up all my data on an external harddrive so its all good. I checked on google and it says something about Pressing F11 + Ctrl or something like that and it has a recovery procedure in the laptop allready. I dont think D600 has that feature and guessing i need a recovery disk. I have looked on ebay and cant find any, Im not even sure what type of recovery disk to get because i found a few, prices were ranging from £30-35 and i cant afford that as i am a student.
Is there a way where i can download some sort of recovery software for dell and burn it onto a disk or something, I looked on google but there is no detailed sources telling me about this,
how i can restore my dell latitude D600 back to its brand new settings without having to buy the recovery disk.

How to go back to factory settings of Bios and delete from Bios all informations about users.
I don't use it very much; it's more a backup machine and the occasional Skype to grandkids. Been having a problem with being unable to use windows update; keeps getting an 8007005 error.
Googling reveals a lot of folks with the same problem, some different fixes, and mixed success stories. I've tried several of the fixes with no luck and probably made things worse than they were before (now Defender won't update).....
I got rid of multiple malware problems, but I still don't have sound when going to youtube e.g., as well as can't install anything. Therefore I think the best thing to do is to reset the computer to factory settings.

i have a 2008 Dell XPS M1330 laptop that i wish to restore to factory settings.¬† i have saved/copied/transferred any/all files i wish to save.
i have searched (google, you tube, dell.com, forums, support) for the answer and all i find is suggested use of pressing F8 during start up.¬† when i choose 'repair my system" , windows just loads normally.
the only seemingly 'recovery' disk i can locate says:¬†
DRIVERS AND UTILITIES Already installed on your computer/For reinstalling Dell xps m1330 computer software. it also says: contents: device drivers/diagnostics and utilities.

I have a Dell INSPIRON 14Z that comes with pre-installed windows 7. The laptop has the recovery partition and i would like to restore it to factory settings. What are the keystrokes for restoring the laptop to factory settings.
how to restore / reformat an Inspiron 720 to factory settings? Its 6 years old now and in need of a reformat.online ive found several answers all suggest pressing F8 on system stsrtup and doing it there.however when i do that and choose Repair My PC i then only get 5 options
None of these seem to allow me to reset my PC to its original state.I didnt have a disc with the PC, there is a recovery partition on the hard drive so i presume i should br able to reformat from that.
I am currently on my dell xps 14z laptop. Ive been having some software issues and I want to reset my computer. I tap f8 like the tutorials say, then I go to repair, state my location and which account to use, but it doesn't have the normal Dell Factory Image Or Dell factory tools for the bottom option. It only has a link to the command prompt window. So how can I factory reset my computer without formatting my hard drive.
