How do i restore my Windows XP computer to the way i had it out the box, with nothing on it except what it came with?

If it came with a reload disk, boot with it and follow the prompts.

Go to Help and Support - System Restore - Restore my computer to an earlier time - click back through the calendar to the first Checkpoint and follow prompts.

minter, system restore will not take the machine back to "factory settings"

Thought there would be a checkpoint from first switch on.

Nope there's a finite amount of disk space allocated for restore points. Once that is reached the earlier ones are overwritten.
