    Restore to Factory Settings?

    Alright, I wish to know how to restore my computer to factory settings. It is a vista home premium 32bit. I don't have the disc but I know it is possible to do it without the disk so don't be a silly banana.

    How would I go about finding the specs?
    Here's what I know, It's a dell Dimension E521.
    and a Hard Drive space of 64.4 GB.

    OK during boot hold down cntrl and f11. If that does not work, you should have received a restore DVD with your computer.
