Hello waqarazam

Try to press F11 as the laptop is booting .

: ADDED :
If that doesn't work try these steps below

Turn the laptop on and tab the F8 key, until you reach the Advanced Boot Options menu

Using the ↓ Down Arrow , select Repair Your Computer and press Enter

Select your language and click Next

Log in as an Administrative user, and click OK ( if needed )

Click Dell Factory Image Restore from System Recovery Options

From the Dell Factory Image Restore window, click Next

Click the check box that says: Yes, reformat hard drive and restore system software to factory
condition


Click Next. Wait while your computer is restored to the default factory configuration

Click FINISH once done .
