Reset Inspiron N4010 back to factory load

I have a N4010 and need to reset back to factory load. I did not get any disks for doing this with the PC when I picked it up used. I have not found anything in the F8 menu to do this. Did not find anything in the manual to help. Is there some CD that I need to get to do this reset ? Thanks

RE: Reset Inspiron N4010 back to factory load

Thanks...I tried these links but had no luck with them.    The restore went to 82% and would not go any further.  I tried that a second time but got the same results.  I followed the other link which basically was the same process and it took all day and it stopped at 82%.

I think the restore function is not going to work on this laptop.  I think I will have to find a disk to reset to factory default, if there it is available.   I can load Win 7 from an install disk that I have and use the license on the laptop which may work.   This would require downloading the unique drivers to the N4010.
