Hello,
I am trying to restore my COMPAQ computer back to factory settings... I don't have a CD and do not care about losing files. I just want it back to as if I just got it out of the box.. Help

Hi,

I have a similar desire to the guy that asked the original question but it not clear to me what the difference is between boot from the recovery disks or just pressing F11 and doing a 'restore to factory settings option'.

Are these two things the same, if not, how do they differ?

Advice would be great, thanks!
