Hi!

I have Dell Studio 1749 with Windows 7 Home Premium. I want to start its built-in recovery but when after pressing F8, I click on Repair your computer .This option didnt work and windows 7 begins its loading.
Kindly tell me any solution for this problem.

Thanks

I had already checked the link above before posting this.
My main problem is that when i try F8 and repair your computer, it still boots normally and doesn't go into the repair mode.
I want to restore my Laptop to factory defaults.
Please advise.

Try tapping F8 more frequently after the first beep when you are in the BIOS POST. I think F8 needs to be hit just before the Windows splash screen. If you miss it then Windows just starts.
