Hi, I'm trying to restore my cell inspiron 1545 to factory settings, but it's asking me for a windows disc, which I do not have?
I've tried f8 method, and it doesn't give me the option for dell restore!
 
Well, in versions prior to 10, you should be able to

1. Go into "Control Panel" and then click "Recovery."
2. Next click "Advanced Recovery Methods."
3. Now click "Return your computer to factory condition."

And in 10...

To do this go to "Start", then "Settings". Next choose "Update & security" and then "Recovery" Here click "Get started" and select the option you wish to use. From here just follow the on-screen instructions to restore Windows 10 back to how it was upon leaving the factory.

Hi webworkings, thanks for your reply.
It's windows 7 and I've tried to restore through the advanced recovery settings.

But it's not giving me the choice to restore without using a disc?
Which I do not have!

Highly annoying
