I cannot access any program on my Dell. It either says "open with what? program" or a dialog box with "windows error file not found" appears.
I tried ctrl+f11 and "cannot restore" - no operating system found appears.
I do not have any installation discs, nor do I know the password for the f2 setup.
What can I do to reset this computer back to factory settings?
1 - See if you can boot Safe Mode and Windows Restore back to date when you did not receive these errors.
2 - If that fails, these URLs may help.http://www.bing.com/search?q=dell+1501+factory+settings&form=MOZSBR&pc=MOZI
