Vostro 1500 PC Restore

When I reboot and press F8 the journal says I should see Advanced Boot Options.  I don't.  Reboot.  Nothing.  Another journal says to press CTRL + F11 at Dell splash screen.  Nothing.  All I want to do it re-install my laptop to factory load.  Nothing to save.  Just reinstall.  Any ideas?

Re: Vostro 1500 PC Restore

Thanks for responding.  I tried the System restore but apparently there is a corrupt file that the System Restore is not helping.  I tried to use PC Restore instruc tions by nothing happens.  CTRL+F11 does not bring up the options at all.  I tried F8 and the Automatic Settings is not listed (I am in as Admin also).

Re: Vostro 1500 PC Restore

Don't you just love when someone (PudgyOne) boldly posts links to solutions (that many of us try first before asking forum help) and the posts are too generic to be of use? I could gain many post pointrs posting links to the Help page without actually providing much help?

Just my 2 cents. For what it's worth.
