Thread: Factory Default Dell n5030 [How]


Forum: PC Problems

Hi Guys both Napster and myself have been searching for a way to factory default my dell n5030 Ive tried several ways pressing 0 on startup pressing f11 pressing f8 all found via a google search, but none work ? f8 takes me to a few options one being restore from image, but no image is found there is a recovery partition I see via disk management so I presume I should be able to do this somehow ?

    Factory Default Dell n5030 [How]

    Hi Guys both Napster and myself have been searching for a way to factory default my dell n5030
    Ive tried several ways
    pressing 0 on startup
    pressing f11
    pressing f8
    all found via a google search, but none work ?

    f8 takes me to a few options one being restore from image, but no image is found

    there is a recovery partition I see via disk management so I presume I should be able to do this somehow ?

    anyone know any other options please

    many thanks

    Brian as I posted I found it in f8 options
    what was putting me off was it kept saying backup and nothing about restore
    but I thought sod it as a last try Ill do it

    after a backup it went on to restore to factory setup
    on 30% now
