If you created the restore media, you can boot off of the first disk and it will guide you through the restore process.
Otherwise, try pressing F11 before Windows starts. This should bring you to the factory restore menu.
There are several options, usually one creates a copy of your current files in a folder before restoring and the other erases everything. Pick the one that applies to your situation and be sure to get all the Windows updates when you are done!
Good Luck!

I need to factory restore

Not enough information to answer. Need manufacturer and specific model number before we can help.

Generally, though, laptops come with one of three ways to restore.

1. The manufacturer supplies a restore disk. This can be a self-booting image of the original load, or it can be an OS disk and an accompanying drivers disk that needs to be installed to restore the unit.

2. The manufacturer provides an application on the drive that the user is supposed to use at the time of purchase to create a set of recovery disks. This application is usually a 1-time-only thing and you cannot make multiple recovery sets with the app, but you can burn copies of the disk(s) you make.

3. The manufacturer places a hidden recovery partition on the hard drive that allows the user to restore the original factory image. There is usually a hotkey combination written into the BIOS that will divert the boot to the recovery sector when pressed at bootup.

Some manufacturers offer both options 2 and 3. But if you got a set of recovery disks at time of purchase, chances are there is no recovery partition on the drive. Recovery partitions are nice and convenient until the problem is the hard drive itself.

If you can provide a specific model number, we may be able to better determine which type of recovery option(s) are available for you PC.

No installation cd

Many newer computers have a backup reinstall program on a partition of the original hard drive. While booting in Bios hit F10 or F12. Your should get boot options as well as the Recovery Install option. Before using the Reinstall option try using the System Restore. The computer automatically sets restore points and you can select "Last good settings" restore point. In "safe mode" you can access more options in Accessories/System Tools/System Restore. There you will find other dates which you can restore to.

If you cannot boot you can use a manufacturers recovery disk. Unlike a MS full version CD the recovery disc will reinstall all software and hardware back to the state it was in when it was new. Depending how old your computer is, you may have to do many downloads from Windows Update.
You can get a recovery reinstall CD from the computer manufacturer, or check with friends if any have the same brand computer as their disc may be compatible with your computer. The discs are manufacturer specific and will only work on the same brand computer.

I want to restore my computer to its factory settings

do you have a system image to restore from?
(this would either provided on optical media (CD or DVD) or as a "restore" partition on your hard drive by the manufacture (or you can create your own using various software).

If you do not have an image to restore from you may try the manufactures website they may be able to send you a copy.

Restore laptop computer to manufacturer settings

You need your ariginal restoration discs either supplied at the time of the sale or the set that consumers are supposed to make the first time they start their machines...manufacturers way of saving money. If you do not have the discs, contact the manufacturer support driver site and give them your serial number from the bottom of the case and they will send a set of discs to you for the specific computer. They may charge a fee for this around 20 bucks or so.

Need to set this back to the factory settings, what can I do to do this

I'm going to make a guess here and assume you have a PC and want to reset it back to the way it was when you 1st brought it home.

You need a Recovery CD. Every new PC comes with one and it sounds like you lost yours. Just contact the manufacturer and ask for a replacement.

I want to erase all info on my computer and restore to original factory settings

If you have the discs that may have come with the computer, you can restore it to manufacturer's settings that way. If not, you can call the manufacturer and buy the disks from them.
