Having problems with your Dell Dimension XPS 400 PC Desktop ?

How can i restore factory setting with my dell desktop xps400 9150 without media dvds


Answers :

Most newer computer do not include any media disc for the purpose of restoration. This is for a couple reasons first it cuts down on the cost of the computer and second it cut down on piracy or in other words taking those media discs and installing them on another computer.

However Dell as well as many other computer manufactures use another method that will allow you to restore your computer back to the way it came out of the box.
At the end I included a couple links.
The first one is your "Owner's Manual". You can find all these steps in this manual as well.


The second are other documents relating to your xps400.


Good Luck and I hope this helps.

To restore your PC to factory settings:

Warning: Anything you added to your system after you purchased it will be deleted. The only way to recover those files and programs are to back them up. I would advise you to get some CD/DVDs and back everything up just to be on the safe side.
