Hi, I use a HP Pavilion 17-e049wm Notebook PC. I am currently trying to figure out how to factory reset it as I cannot use my metro apps and I have various issues that I would either need to shell out a lot of money to fix, or simply reset the computer. But I do not know how to do a factory reset and if I need a disc to do so or what? Can someone help me please? I can't find any help anywhere else.

Everything you need to know will be in the instruction manual.

Usually to reset to factory default you press F11 as you press the power button to turn the computer on this takes you into the recovery media.
