hey peeps, the laptop i am trying to repair is supposed to have the tap f10 function to restore to factory settigns, although the f10 tapping doesnt work at all, however, on closer inspection, i can see the hidden partition on the system and on booting i can boot to a dos recovery console as and when i need to, is there a way i can run the f10 programme without tapping f10? if that makes any sence please reply lol

thanks

Are you pressing F10 as soon as you switch on the PC?

What make and model laptop are you trying to reset?

How do I reinstall Windows when my system did not come with a Recovery CD (Windows XP systems)?
As your system starts you should see a “PRESS F10” message. Pressing F10 at this point will start the system recovery program, and should result in a “Starting system recovery” message appearing.

To completely wipe and reinstall your system click the ADVANCED OPTIONS button, and then click on the QUICK FORMAT option. Then press the NEXT button and answer YES to the next two questions.
