Running Windows 7 starter.
I am trying to restore my LPO's inspiron mini to factory settings and every way I have worked it has failed. I have tried the ctrl+F11 at boot and that just produces nothing for me. When I hit F8 at start and select repair computer and log in nothing appears for me. I only have a limited window because it has been packed with viruses and such so it likes to restart its self or blue screen after about 10-20 min in. Is there a better way going about this?

I realize it's not a great computer but I'd like to restore it for her.

Thanks in advance. Any more info needed I will provide.

Do you have the system restore disk that came with the computer? If so, plop it in, boot from the disk and follow directions.

Or, if anything, just reinstall Windows.
