According to this datasheet you have a recovery cd included
http://www.aocn.eu/FSCInfo/dox/1337056781.pdf

if you want to setup your computer to factory settings yes.. more than likely by using the recovery cd that should've come with your system you will be reinstalling the operating sytem and the software that came with your pc when you first bought it.

if you have decided to use the recovery cd... (the fastest road)
1. back up your precious data (used a cd, or a flass/thumb drive and put your music, documents, pictures and movies on it)
2. insert your recovery cd in the cd drive and restart the sytem
3 follow the prompts... everything will be deleted and your operating system will be reinstalled.

if you're reluctant to use the recovery cd (the longest road)
1.get and update a good antivirus (avg or avast are free and pretty good)
2. get and update anti-malware software (spybot s&d, adware SE, a-squared)
3. run anti-malware software* (you may have to run the program and scan your system several times)
4. run your antivirus sotware* (do it a couple of times to make sure threats are removed)
5. one you know there's no spyware and no viruses you may want to clean your registry (ccleaner is recommended)
6. defrag your hard drive.

* you may want to run these programs in safe mode (to enter safemode restart your system and after your pc finish the POST process press f8 (if you see the windows xp logo you missed your chance, restart and try again by having your finger on the f8 ready to start pressing) if you did at the right time you will see a black screen titled advance startup options, with the arrow keys select safe mode and press enter.)

sometimes depending how bad your system is even after completing 1-6 you may not get the expected results and if not done with care as you may run into other problems you may end up messing up your system causing you to have to reinstall the system using the recovery cd.

either route you take.. backup your data first
(I didn't mean that to rhyme but it did)

    if you have xp installed on your laptop and if you don't have a recovery disk check if you have a hidden partition (some new laptops from compaq/hp for example will have a hidden partition that acts as the recovery cd) you can use that recovery partition to reinstall your operating system and leave it the way you got it when you first purchased it (check at start up for instructions to press an f key to go into setup or recovery). other systems will have a mechanism for you, yourself to create recovery disks, if you want post the brand and model that you have for laptop and we'll look up instructions if avaliable.



    in case you just simply don't have a recovery disk or no hidden partition to reinstall the os from. you may have to get yourself a cd with a copy of xp (you have to pay for it or risk to download a bootleg copy of internet) or as


    Saigua said you may want to think about getting a distro (version) of os: linux (which is free) and install it (if you're not familiar how to install linux you may want to read about it first, it's not complicated but it's a little bit different from a fresh install of xp.)

    saigua brings a good point of something cpus do when starting to overheat if supported by the motherboard and the cpu itself which is throttling (the cpu slowing down to protect itself)... so if you have an old system try to find out the service manual (post system details and we'll try to find it for you if possible as not all of them are avaliable) and follow the instructions on how to disasable your laptop to clean it up with a can of compressed air particularly the fan's as saigua said.. if you're not that technical and if you're willing to even sacrifice your laptop for your own knowledge i would say go for it and do it yourself.. if not (and you want someone to blame if something goes wrong).. you may want to leave the laptop disasambling for a techinitian of your trust.

Get a Linux or bsd or other OS distribution (the version appropriate to your laptop's CPU) on appropriate media (CD, DVD+RAM if your laptop reads those, flash drive, whatever you like) and a replacement hard drive (the interface (at least) has to match; and try 7300RPM ones for faster access) for the laptop. Then you can install the new OS on the new hard drive, optimize from there, and see if you're satisfied with the speed and usability.

It is possible of course that your CPU is throttling back if the heatsink fan failed...in that case you get to clean or replace the fan; that is, if you get a notion dusting might help when you are putting in the HD, get some canned air and carefully dust it.

Also; save for a new faster machine.

My son deleted windows vista from his laptop and installed linux, if I delete this and restore factory settings will he get vista back


Your best bet is to contact Fujitsu and order a set of "Recovery Discs". If he installed Linux, chances are the Restore Partition (which allows you to bring it back to Factory Defaults) is no longer accessible in any way. Recovery Discs will allow you to reinstall Vista and the necessary drivers.
