Hi, Im trying to restore an older Emachine T1220 back to factory settings for my gramma to learn on. I have the restore CD, not sure what F key to hit to get to the right screen on startup, also do I put the CD in before hitting the F key? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Deanna

you should just need to put the disk in the drive, reboot the computer, then wait for the prompt to press "any key" to boot from CD. press a key on the keyboard and it should boot from the CD.

if you don't get this prompt you may have to change your bios settings. during boot up, press f2 or del (usually. if it's not one of these two keys you'll see a prompt on the screen saying "press <something> to enter setup") then look for the boot order setting, change those settings so that the CD drive is the first device.
