Dell Restore is accessed by restarting the computer and pressing CTRL and F11, releasing both at the same time before you get the message about loading the descriptor for PBR2 below a blue bar running across the top of the screen.

If you read this thread, you'd know you have to reboot and press Ctrl-F11 before Windows starts to load...
