    Hi all. I have a brand new Dell Inspiron 1545 (Laptop), it is 3 weeks old, running Windows 7. I have a need to do a Factory Restore on it. Yes I want everything to be just as if I just bought it. I understand perfectly what this does. Ctrl + F-11 at the logo doesn't work. And I don't want to reinstall my OS with the Recovery Disk, because then I would need to reinstall EVERYTHING. + I only have till this Saturday, because I'm leaving on a trip, and won't be able to do this there (no time to). Is there any other ways to start the Factory Restore process? Thank You for your help folks.

    Why do you want to restore everything?

    Just do a sfc /scannow scan using command prompt.
    Then run your recovery disk and choose to repair Windows, that might get your drivers back

    Do you have a Recovery Disc, or a disc with Windows 7 on it?

    I think that Recovery Disc does exactly what you want. It restores the system using a hard drive image including all the drivers, pre-loaded software, and the operating system.

    Edit: What is the size of the data on the disc?

    [FONT=times new roman, new york, times, serif]Thank You all. This is solved. Tapping F8 at the LOGO (just like if you would want to see SAFE mode options), and then picking "Advanced Options", and there is an option to do a "Recover Install" or something along those lines. Older DELL have a Recovery Partion also, but to acsess those were by pressing F12 at the LOGO. This is solved. Thank You All.[/FONT]
