    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
