Events that demand a Restore
There are certain events that would demand a system or PC Restore to ensure continuous safe operation of the system. A system crash would normally occur because of various reasons like corrupt operating system, virus or malware infection or any potentially unwanted modifications by the user. In case of an unrecoverable system crash where the recovery tools provided by the operating system or any other software programs are of no use, it is recommended that the user make use of this feature from Dell to restore the system back to its original configuration.
Things to be done before a Restore
Before attempting a complete PC Restore you need to complete some recommended steps that are needed to ensure the effective restoration of factory settings in the laptop. The first thing to keep in mind is to backup all the necessary user data and applications as the PC Restore completely wipes off all the user settings which includes all user installed applications and custom settings done by the user. You need to make sure that the recovery partition is intact and working. A PC Restore is done as a last resort to recover a corrupt system from its obsolete state.
You should make sure that the power cord is plugged into the wall outlet or whether there is enough charge in the laptop battery. While switching on the system a screen showing a blue colored bar saying Dell.com will appear on the screen, press 'Ctl'+'F11' when you see that bar. If you fail to press the keys at the right time, attempt another restart of the system to complete the step. When you have successfully pressed the aforesaid keys the system will display another screen showing a Restore option. Click on the Restore button and follow the on screen instructions for a successful Restore of the system. A Restore might take around ten minutes of your time so be patient and don’t shut down or reboot the system until it shows a finish button which will restart the computer to its factory settings.
After the restore the computer is set to its factory setting so the operating system might ask you to confirm the user license agreement as it was when you first got the system. After all things are done it might restart again and you need to fill in all the details regarding account names, passwords etc. You will have to perform all the necessary installation and updates of the system drivers and applications to ensure continued safety and performance of your system.
