Hello, i seem to be having a problem restoring to factory settings on my Dell Inspiron E1505 laptop using Windows Vista Home Premium with service pack 2.
I have bought this computer from a friend.
First of all i am stating what i have tried and items that i dont have which are necessary.
I have tried restarting/shutting down and starting up windows while holding down f8 button(or just pressing it),
this does show the safe mode options as well as many other options for booting, yet it does not however
show the repair computer option, which is what i am looking for.
I have tried looking online for help (have not posted to any forums until now)
but i have mainly been seeing that i need a CD or product key to resolve this problem.
I have tried f11 on restart as well as ctrl+f11 neither of them seem to do anything.
I have tried looking for a tg file after clicking on start button of my taskbar, the file does not show.
I do not have dell datasafe 2.0 as a program on my computer.
I do not have a system restore CD or backup CD's, or anything of the like.
I do not have my original Windows Vista installation disc.
I do not have a product key for my Windows Vista computer.
My computer has a valid genuine (not illegal) version of Windows Vista Home Premium with service pack 2.
Any help would be appreciated.
