Windows 7: F8 can't get to screen to do factory status tapping f8 not working.

F8 can't get to screen to do factory status tapping f8 not working.


I have a Dell inspiron 15 5520 laptop and I have tried over 20 times booting up trying to get to advanced options screen to get to system restore recovery so I can use factory restore image to put my laptop to factory status.

**** I have had many Dell laptops and desktop computers and have activated advanced options and used factory images and put laptops and desktops to factory status so YES I have done this many times.

Are they other ways while in Windows 7 I can activate system restore and get my laptop to factory status state?
