How/can I do a Dell Factory Image Restore from System Recovery Disks?

I have tried unsuccessfully to do a Factory Image Restore on my Dell Inspiron laptop with Windows 7 but that's not a choice on the Factory Image Restore welcome screen. So, I thought I would try using my System Recovery disks if possible. I'm not that computer literate but could you help with the proper steps to take? Thanks!

F8 at power on should get you to the Dell PC Restore. However, if the OS has been changed (boot record) then the PC Restore is no longer valid.

This may help, if not post on the Dell forums for specific help.
