Question about Computers & Internet
To reboot your mini laptop to factory default you need to re-install your OS (Operating System).
To do this you need your Windows xp, vista, or Windows 7 disc, and make sure you have your product key. Ie. Product Key: xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx (Most product keys are on the bottom of the laptop, and are 25 Characters).
Put the disc in your laptop and restart your computer. Boot from CD, and follow the prompts. It will ask you if you want to format your partition (Erase all your data including virus's) and format it. Then it will install your OS, and you will have factory default setting's and programs.
Hope this helps and if you have any further questions don't hesitate to ask me! Please don't forget to rate :), Thanks!
