How to restore Dell Inspirion N5010 to factory settings.

I have a Dell Inspirion N5010 that I would like to restore to factory settings but when I boot it up and press either F8 or F12 it does not give me the advance boot options where the restore to factory settings is. What am I doing wrong or what do I need to do, Thanks.

You will need a copy of the Dell restore media if the system no longer shows the restore function after pressing F8 at powerup.

In the US, see

outside the US or out of warranty you'll need to call Dell.
