Need to reset my nobi notebook to factory settings

If you just require you operating system to be reset and remove all data then put your operating system disk in and boot up and install again. Please be mindful the this will not put any other none windows programs back on, microsoft office etc. you will need original disks or a full backup to do this and you will lose all data. If you want to reset your bios the factory setting only, then boot up from cold and press f2, delete or F12 according to your machines screen display before it gets to boot up windows. look though the tabs until you find the 'reset to default' listed, click, save and exit. Job done! Hope it helps

Step 1 Open the Windows Start menu by clicking on the icon in the lower left corner of your desktop.

Step 10 Click "OK" when the utility lets you know that the restoration is complete. The computer will restart, and Windows will finish the recovery process.

My computer is an Acer aspire x3200 but about a year ago i downloaded ubuntu and used it for 3 months then parents wanted window vista back we didnt know how to do it so my mom gave computer to her friend...

Sounds like "her friend" formatted the hard drive when he fixed it, which deleted the recovery partition. He/she ran fdisk and deleted all the partitions to max disk space.

I've come close to doing this before myself when I haven't paid close attention. Not all computers have a recovery partitions.

But I'd avoid Vista at all costs. Windows 7 is something you can get dirt cheap now (Craigslist) and it's much better.

He/she probably only had the 32-bit version, which is lame if you have more than 4GB of Ram.

This is really a simple fix for someone that has a copy of windows 7 and a valid ***********.

If you really want it like it was, I'm sure Acer will sell you a recovery DVD that you can just drop in your DVD drive and boot to it. But again, Vista stinks compared to Win 7.
