Complete system restore

  ade3k 02:26 18 May 2008

Need a bit of help, and will probably sound pretty thick.

I'm trying to do a complete reboot of my laptop and restore it to factory settings. I have a Vista recovery disk but I can't for the life of me work out how to actually initialise the reboot process.

Anyone able to help with a guide of what to do?

Reboot your pc,and when its just coming on repeatedly tap f11 i think it is to get into bios...then change your boot order to boot first from your cd rom...

On start up (with XP anyway) its f10 for recovery, watch the screens when starting your laptop and press f10 (or the F key that says press for for recovery) and see what options it gives you.
