Most branded manufacturers now do not include recovery disks with the systems as the recovery is included on a separate partition on the hard drive. Different manufacturers have different key combinations to access this partitions to do a system recovery. In most instances this will format your system and return it back to like new condition. All data will be lost along with programs you have added.

The key combination is CRTL + F11 pushing the keys at the same time at the the dell screen during post. Once you push them then you want to release them.
It should go into the recovery partition so you can do a system restore.
