Help! Does anyone know how to reset my 4150 back to the original factory settings. I just did this with my other Dell Inspiron B-130 by holding down the CTRL Key and pressing the F-11 key during boot-up. A blue screen came up and it was easy. I cna't seem to figure out how to do this with the Inspiron 4150. Does anyone have any suggestions. I would very much appreciate it thanks Neal!

If you are talking about entering BIOS and resetting it then try Ctrl + F2

You can also try hitting Enter key while booting.

If I'm not mistaken, it's like the Inspiron 8200 BIOS.

Press F2 to access the BIOS, then press ALT+F to reset it.

Exit saving changes and that's it.

for bios, do what kamika0007z said, for system recovery, try ctrl+f11, or alt+f11. If none helps, google it, and/or go to and click on support.
