My HD failed and I am installing a new one. Since the restore data is in the old HD, how can I restore to factory settings?
I do not have any backups. And the only CD I have that came with the laptop is the Dell Drivers and Utilities. I don't think that cd has a copy of windows....so where will I install windows from? The laptop came with windows 7.
Followed the link and my laptop is out of warranty.
It gave me a number to call. before I call, anyone knows what to expect ? Maybe a purchase option?
Media policy varies from region to region.
Please share the system's Service Tag and Owner's/Company's Name with me via private message (click my username and then click Start Conversation) and I will check what best can be done.
Keep me posted with the information. I will be glad to assist you further.
2017 - MUST RESTORE MY INSPIRON 17 N 7010 TO FACTORY SETTINGS. I don't see a response here that was a solution. The "F8" solution doesn't seem to work and Dell did not provide a CD with the laptop other than the Drivers disc. It doesn't make sense to me that Dell would not allow its customers this option. Anyone have a solution? Thanks in advance.
