[WPXperVideo id=39 ]okay in this video we’ll show you how to do a full factory restore on a dell inspiron computer and this will work with pretty much any dell inspiron laptop or desktop that you may have it’ll actually work with Dell netbooks and Dell latitudes as well so it’s just not just not just for the dell inspiron this particular model you can usually find the model on the bottom this one is a dell inspiron 1764 but again it will work on the Inspiron 15 45 s or whatever deal that you have the whole purpose of doing a factory restore is to make it fresh from factory just like you were buying it right from a retail box at Best Buy or Walmart so you’re just trying to get it back to that you might want to do it just because you want to resell it or you want to give it to a Fant friend or family member you just may want to start out fresh you might have a virus or a Trojan horse that you can’t get rid of so you want to refresh it maybe got a whole bunch of files you just don’t want to delete spend all the time deleting it so you just want to go ahead and get rid of that so we’ll go ahead and show you what it is is the majority of the newer computers and I say newer meaning the last five to eight years they started putting the operating system whether that be Windows 8 Windows 7 Windows Vista and of course now Windows 10 on the actual hard drive itself and most laptops have a SATA hard drive like this the older ones are called IDE and then of course now you got the SSD drives which are really quick and smaller but they actually put the windows 7 operating disk or your operating system on the hard drive itself the reason they do that is to avoid parting because what would happen is someone would get a you know it in the retail box that would come with the DVD that had one at seven and they would put it on multiple computers you know that didn’t actually have the license on it so they do that in order to avoid pirating okay so this is a pretty easy step you want to make sure that you you want to make sure that your laptop is plugged in because it won’t work without it being plugged in and it takes a while usually takes about 30 minutes to do a full factory restore on a computer so what you want to do is when you turn it on you want to tap the f8 button which it’ll be on the top and it’s pretty obvious F isn’t Frank eight and you could do it two ways when you see the Dell logo you could tap the f8 or you could just hold it down so let’s go ahead and try it okay and you might actually have to try it a couple of times didn’t work that time and you might hear some beeping again same problem huh I mean why didn’t let me all right so what you’re going to do is it’ll give you the very first option is repair my computer so you go ahead and click enter and that should take you it’ll say Windows is loading files and that actually took me a little bit longer than actually showing the video it took me 8 times 8 to 10 times it took me to stop it and restart it and to hit f8 so a lot of times you have to play around with it it should definitely give you an option to repair my computer even if the operating system for whatever reason is not on the partition so you know a lot of times these laptops hack stubborn alright so what you want to do is is System Recovery and then put your country and then you want click Next and it’s got your username and password if you don’t have a password leave it blank or if you do go ahead with the password click OK the username password is incorrect interesting ok click owner all right now it’ll give you a different options System Restore what a System Restore does is it brings it back to adult ago what will happen is your computer will set up in order it gives images to where you could take it back before you got a virus or whatever so we won’t do that the system injury recovery what you want to do is Dell factory image restore let’s see let’s go ahead and try that all right System Restore this utility or store your system software to the state it was in when it left the factory in order to return the system to the factory state all personal files will be overwritten so keep that in mind if you have any pictures videos stuff that you want to save I recommend you go ahead and doing that or it will all be lost what you can do is you can purchase you in like a little USB Drive memory stick you can get it at Walgreens or drugstores or Walmart for like 10 or 15 bucks this is 16 gigs and what you could do is you could just move all your files over there to your USB Drive so after you do that you just click Next warning it gives you another warning again it’s going to erase everything and then you say yes reformat hard drive and restore system software to factory conditions next and so that’s what it’s doing Alex restoring the its restoring my laptop back to factory ok thank you for watching if you have any questions put it in the comment section
