  2. Simply follow the Recovery or Restoration instructions provided by the
    computer's manufacturer. Consult the manual that came with the computer
    or the manufacturers web site.

  3. When your Dell starts up, during the 'black screen' portions, right after
    the Dell screen, Press F8 several times, and get to the menu screen that
    offers to 'restore to factory defaults'
