To restore the factory default configuration using the console, putty in and execute
erase startup-config

To execute the factory default reset on the switch, perform these steps:
1. Using pointed objects, simultaneously press both the Reset and Clear buttons on the front of the switch.
2. Continue to press the Clear button while releasing the Reset button.
3. When the Global Status LED begins to fast flash orange (after approximately 5 seconds), release the Clear
4. The switch will then complete its boot process and begin operating with its configuration restored to the factory default settings.

As part of your troubleshooting process on the switch, it may become necessary to return the switch configuration to the factory default settings. This process momentarily interrupts the switch operation, clears any passwords, clears the console event log, resets the network counters to zero, performs a complete self test, and reboots the switch into its factory default configuration, including deleting the IP address, if one is configured.
NOTE: This process removes all switch configuration changes made from the factory default
settings. This includes, for example, configuration of VLANs, spanning tree, trunks, and stacking.
Returning the configuration of these features to their factory default settings (usually disabling them)
may result in network connectivity issues. If the switch has a valid configuration, and you are restoring the factory default settings for a reason other than configuration problems, you should save the switch configuration prior to performing the factory default reset. After the reset and resolution of the original problem, you can restore the saved configuration to the switch.
