Help restoring my Dell laptop to factory?

Specs: Windows XP, ?
I was given a dell laptop and I have a virus and I am trying to restore it back to the factory settings, but I don't know how. I got it in 2008 and it's probably somewhere between 2005-2008 in age.

Most laptops do have OS preinstalled and have a hidden partition, where the system recovery routine is stored.
This can normally be accessed by pressing ALT+F10 or something like that, at the very first screen on switching on the laptop.

Sometimes, you have to enter the system bios, to activate this routing by switching on the D2D option to get ALT+F10 to get running.
