Hi, I don't know if this question is in the right place, but I'm going to put it here anyways. Ok, so my question is.. I have an Emachine with Windows XP and would like to know how i can restore my entire system so it becomes the way it was the first time I bought it. I used to have an HP with Windows ME and that computer came with three cds. I would put in the first cd and restart my computer with the cd in it and it would erase everthing off the computer and then it would ask me to replace the cd with the # 2 cd and that one would restore all the original files. I would like to know how to do it in this computer because this one did not come with any CDs. I heard someone say that I had to press one of the Function keys like when you press F2 when the computer is starting it takes you into safe mode, but i don't remember wich key it is to restore the original files and programs. If someone could help me that would be great. Thanks.

if your cmputer has a recovery partition (right click on my computer > manage > disk manager> what do you see? or if you can..give me a screen shot) alot of times the "magic" keystroke is shift f10 during boot...but this could be different for emachines..
