advent laptop help

Trying to reformat my niece's advent laptop, can't find the recovery disks but i phoned the tech guys once and he gave me really simple instructions on how to factory reset without the discs but now i forget. Not in a position to call at the minute so does anyone know how?

i seem to remember pressing something on bootup then typing something and it was all auto from there. Cheers in advance.

Restart your computer. Then Press F10 repeatedly until the message "Starting System Recovery" is displayed.
