    How do I restore my m1330 back to factory setting, I pressed F8 at the start but I didn't see the option to do it, is there any other way?

    Thanks

    What OS came preinstalled? Did you remove any partitions or rearrange anything? Did you get an OS reinstall disc with the laptop?

    Do you get a menu at all when you hit F8 at startup? If so, the option you have to choose is "repair computer" I believe.

    Definitely it's f8 and repair computer then you
    get the options to restore to factory settings.
    If you haven't reformatted.
