Insert the Recovery CD into your CD-ROM.
Reboot your computer.
Watch the text in DOS carefully. When prompted to boot from your CD, do so.
Choose System Restore and then follow the instructions presented. Once system recovery beings, it may take a few minutes. Once it's done, your system will reboot again.
Remove the Recovery CD from your CD-ROM and store it carefully. Your system has been reset to the factory default.
