To the average user all data will be inaccessible.
i was wondering what could happen if i format the hard drive
Without an installation disk you cannot.
and also how to restore all to default without the cd..
To wipe the HDD use http://www.dban.org/ and consider using an alternative OS to a Microsoft product, Mandriva/Linux http://www.mandriva.com/en/ for example.
i want to sell the laptop but i want it clean and all my info removed..

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.
