Hi i was just wondering if i could restore my pc back to factory settings without the red floppy that came with my pc i'm running win/98?
Thanx in advance.

Do you have a copy of Windows 98 or just a recovery CD?

just a recovery cd.

Also forgot to mention, how do i get into my bios i tried holding the delete key during start up but this didn't work.

Then I think that you are stuck with using the "magic" floppy - which, presumably, you have misplaced?

maybe you can download the recovery floppy that works with the master cd from the manufacturers website,have you tried?

Put the recovery disc in the CD drive, shut down and restart. Follow the instructions on screen and everything should go back to factory settings. This is the procedure using a medion machine. I expect the procedure does not vary much. To get to bios, don't just hold it down, instead keep taping it.

BTW, you should have a manual with your machine which tells you how to go back to factory settings.If you have lost it and if the comp is from a major supplier go to their website and download it.
