I'm trying to restore my pc(6 years old) to factory reset , I have tried the system restore but it did not work, I have seen many very cheap software on the internet but I'm not sure if they will work please advice.
Sometimes it might be an f6 key or f7 or Esc-escape key try all of them at the top.
Insert your disc and restart and try all the F keys to get the computer to run by the disc drive.
Do you also need a driver disk for your computer make sure you have after you get the xp running new again, make sure you look at the screen as son as you see boot from cd or press any key to continue press it.
Im using Linux mint 9 instead of xp which pretty cheap, fast,you can get it from the Linux shop.
