How to factory restore a laptop

    As title please.

    I have purchased a dell laptop from my mate and want to restore it to how it was when it first comes out of the box. It is running vista if that makes a difference. I clicked on restore but it says there are no files backed up. Any help would be apreciated.

    Cheers Guys

    If thats what the laptop said it's cause you didn't have auto backup on
    You could always reset windows with the disc or hang on go to my computer & see if you have a media partition if so you should be able to reset from that

    Sorry that went around the bush (_;)
