Hi traviohl47
Hold (Ctrl) whille tapping (F11) at the Dell Start up screen. When it asked for Reboot or Restore, Selecting Restore will return your Dell system to factory settings. Warning there is now going back after the rebuild is started.
This works for XP and I think that 2000 is the same procedure.

If there is a problem, please post this on the Dell Forum.

Thank You

How Do I Resore Factory Settings?


Is there a particular reason you are wanting to do this?

You can try what noknojon suggested, but I do not believe that there is a restore partition on the drive due to its age.

If 123Runner is correct then the links will only apply to XP and not Win 2000.
Try a post to Dell support forum and they will then point you to the Restore if it can be done.
Please answer the question by 123Runner as why you want to do a Factory Restore.

Thank You
EDIT -
I am having trouble finding support for Windows 2000 Restore as most support seems to be for XP and upwards.

L800CXE = 800MHz Pentium III with 128MB RAM and 10GB HD?

Are you kidding me/us?

I'd be surprised if Dell even had a "factory restore" type feature that many years ago.
