It sounds like the restore didn't complete

Restore to factory settings will often reboot more than once. If you somehow didn't let it complete the process, that might explain what happened. How did you get into this restore in the first place? Why can't you repeat the process? Have you looked under Start -> All programs -> Dell to see if you can't repeat the restore?
When I bought my Inspiron 620 4 months ago, it came with a procedure for burning recovery discs. Didn't yours? Maybe you could repeat that process since you apparently don't have those discs.
When you've gotten your system back like you want it, I urge you to get yourself an external hard drive and a good 3rd party backup program. You can set it up to do everything automagically at the time and frequency of your choice. 1 TB external hard drives are about $70 these days and a really good FREE backup program is the Easeus todo backup free which you can download from
http://www.todo-backup.com/products/home/free-backup-software.htm . That can save you a lot of time and frustration the next time something like this happens. Sooner or later it happens to all computers for one reason or another.
