Here's a link to the instructions in the manual

There are of course different methods available to you but this should give you a start:

http://h20628.www2.h...c01660877-1.pdf

 

Here's an extract of one particular method:

 

NOTE:
System Recovery deletes any data or programs
that you created or installed after purchase. Therefore, ensure you have backed up to a removable disc

any data or installation files, product serial keys including that for Windows itself
that you want to keep, and with at least one extra copy kept safe offsite on removable media
.

 

If you  have a wireless mouse or keyboard then its worth you considering replacing them and using a PS2

or USB mouse and keyboard for the duration of the procedure.

 

1 Turn off the computer. If necessary, press and hold the On button until the computer turns off.
2 Disconnect all peripheral devices from the computer, except the monitor, keyboard, and mouse.
3 Press the On button to turn on the computer.
4 As soon as you see the initial company logo screen appear, repeatedly press the F11 key on your
keyboard until the Recovery Manager window opens.
5 Click Advanced options
6 Click Recover your computer to its original factory condition, and then click Next
7 If you are prompted to back up files, and you have already done so, click No, , and then click Next
8 System recovery begins. After system recovery is complete, the computer restarts.
9 Complete the registration process, and wait until you see the desktop.
10 Turn off the computer, reconnect all peripheral devices, and turn the computer back on.
11 Perform the procedure “Performing the post-recovery procedure” on page 11

@paws offers detailed guide, but I want to say an important point, you must back up your password, you can write it down on paper or make a password reset disk, or you can use some Windows password recovery tool to help you. There are many, you can search on Google or click https://www.google.c...d recovery tool directly

Again, you need to back up your password
