Windows 7: "Repair your computer" option not working (from f8)

Hello,

I have a Dell Inspiron N7110 with windows 7 home premium. I want to restore my computer to factory settings but whenever I hit f8 at startup and choose the "repair your computer" option, my computer just boots up normally. I've tried several times and it never works. Please help!
