F8 is the key... Instruction manual says to hit <F8> several times to access the advanced options window.

 

Keep hitting F8 till the Dell logo screen goes off... u should then see the menu to do complete system restore

or back to factory settings.

I did it by restart, as soon as blue bar across top with writing below it - immediately ctr-f11- worked for me

I have a dell mini 10. The mini is showing a reminder helper of an unknown error. I was going to restore it and found the keyboard was up to F10 on it, Where do I find the F11 key at????

     Thanks,

Hope this helps... I actually gave mine away so I can't look at the keyboard.

F11 is not on the kbd you have to attach a usb keyboard and then turn it on.  same for f8 on my dell.

It's nice that it helped someone, originally when I started this thread and asked for help with the laptop the situation was resolved by me returning the laptop and getting something else. It just seems when I get the reply emails from this thread they seem to be directed toward my original problem I had. If it's still useful use this but someone tell me how to stop receiving emails from it!
