Hi raiderkeek7,

Please check by pressing F2 and F12 if you are able to access the pre boot menus. Also, check with an external keyboard to isolate the issue.

Check this link below for performing factory restore:

If you have made a backup using Dell Datasafe Local Backup then you can check the link below for performing a restore:

And lastly you can check to clean re-install the windows on the system:

Clean Install Windows 7

Keep us posted with the results so we can advise you further.

Hi raiderkeek7,

Thanks for your reply. You would only be able to restore using the DELL datasafe software if you have previously made backup of your windows image using this software.

Please let me know if you have made a backup earlier and also is it on CD or a USB drive.

You could try performing PC restore using the first link mentioned in the first post. And, if it fails then you can perform a clean re-installation of windows on the system.

Keep us posted with the results so we can advise you further.
