Recently gone back to using an old xp computer but since it's full of all manner of useless stuff, I wanted to do a factory reset of the machine. I spent a while on various forums attempting to understand how to do this, and it seemed that since I didn't have the OS CD that would have come with the computer, I had to use a recovery partition. I read that when the machine was booting it would come up with a recovery option of some sort, and that I would have to access it using one of several keys (F1,F10 etc). When booting, my machine gives me no such option, it only has Setup and something about BIOS. Anyway, this is just my current predicament and I was looking for help as to how to factory reset my machine. Sorry if I've left any crucial information out, if anything else is needed then just ask. Cheers in advance.
