Restore a Medion P.C running Vista to Factory settings

Having copied all my files and photos to an external HD I now wish to restore the machine to factory settings. I do not have a disk. Pressing F11 on bootup just takes me to the BIOS set up. I have also tried pressing F9, F10, and F12 but none take me to the screen where I am invited to choose a "restore to factory settings" option. I seem to remember that it is possible to access this screen via the command prompt but I don't know what command to type in. Can anybody help please?

Thank you Lazarus the 2nd for your response. Unfortunately pressing F2 does not work, it only takes me to the "Windows Boot Manager and offers me two options. 1: to carry on booting to Windows Vista and 2: do do a diagnostic memory check. Referring back to my original post. Is there a way to access the screen I want through the Command prompt?

Try holding down the alt key while tapping F10 at start up and see if that works.

There should be no problems other than the inconvenience of having to restore your iPhone to factory settings.

Except for one factor - contacts, calendar, notes, photos in the camera roll. You need to copy all of these to your computer or you will lose them. The easiest way is to sync these with apps on your computer such as MS Outlook or iCal and Address Book on a Mac. Photos are copied the same way you would with any digital camera.

The alternative is a 3rd party app that can copy files from an iPhone to your computer. iOS Data Recovery software is probably the best. It is not free, but has gotten positive reviews.

NOTE: I have no connection with the developers, and don't even own it.
