    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.
