Hello and welcome to Techspot.
In order to make it more likely for you to get replies, I have moved your thread to a more appropriate forum. I have also retitled your thread in order to make it more descriptive.

What settings are you looking for? Bios defaults?
If you mean BIOS defaults -
Restart your computer.
At the first text on the screen, or immediately after the Dell logo appears,
press the <F2> key every three seconds until the message Entering Setup appears.
When the System Setup screen appears, press the <CTRL> and <F11> keys at the same time.
Use the arrow keys to correct the date and clock settings as needed.
Press the <ESC> key.
Press the <Y> key to Save Changes and Exit.
Your computer restarts.
If you mean restore the OS to it`s factory state,see HERE
If your having a password problem see rustam`s posts HERE
