How to Restore a Dell 9300 to the Original Settings

By Tyson Cliffton

Restoring your Dell 9300 Inspiron laptop to its original factory settings is a great way to erase your hard drive and start with a clean slate. The restoration process will help remove any viruses that have become deeply rooted in your computer that you haven't been able to get rid of through other methods. Restoring your computer to its factory settings is also a great way to speed up a slow computer. The restoration process will remove old, unnecessary files that are just taking up space on your hard drive, allowing you to store more personal data and install more programs.

Step 1

Turn on your Dell 9300 Inspiron laptop.

Step 2

Hold the "Ctrl" button down and press the "F11" button when a blue bar with "www.dell.com" is displayed in the top part of the screen during the boot process. The PC Restore screen will appear on your screen.

Step 3

Click "Restore" and then "Confirm." The system restore process will begin and should take no longer than 10 minutes.

Step 4

Click "Finish" to restart your computer when the restoration process is complete.

Step 5

Click "Next" after your computer restarts to begin the final stages of your system restore. The PC Restore program will finalize restoring your computer to its original factory settings and will automatically restart when the restoration is finished.

Click "OK" when the computer restarts to complete the restoration process.
