How to restore Windows 7 on Asus

Specs: Windows 7
Hello.

I have a problem with my Laptop.

It has Windows 7 and im trying to restore to the factory settings.

The problem is that the recovery CD that came with the computer is corrupt.

When i try to use the F9 key (hotkey from Asus) it only give the options of System Restore and System Restore from windows image. I try both of them but none of them give the option to restore to factory settings.

I have the Recovery partition on the computer and everything but it just doesn't work.

Can anyone help me please?

My Laptop is: Asus N90Sc

I can't speak for Asus but my HP has a place to create the System Recovery Disc.
Your allowed to make one copy, at least 3 DVD will be needed, maybe more.
The Recovery CD that you have - put in the Tray and Restart your computer.
If it doesn't work call Asus. You will have to prove ownership to get new
Install CD's
If the warranty has expired, I can't say if they will help, you can only try.

Isn't System Restore exactly a return to factory settings via the recovery partition?

No. It will only restore the computer to an early point in time. :S

use system restore image, if you made an image you will have to point to the storage media that will restore your machine to the day you created the image, by deleting the C drive and reimaging your machine.

the factory F key combo will be found on the asus web site or in your manual, try ctrl-F10 at boot.
or this method.
* 2) Press and hold the 0 (zero) key and at the same time, tap the power button once to switch on your notebook.
* 3) When the machine Starts beeping; release the 0 key.
* 4) When prompted by the warning screen; select Yes to continue with the system recovery.
* 5) Select Recovery of Factory Default Software; click Next.
* 6) Select Recover to out-of-box state. Click Next again.
* 7) Click Next to Start recovery.

Hi.

Thanks for your help. i try the option with the 0(zero) but it did not work.

The F10 bring up a bios menu with this message
NOEXECUT=OPTIN.

If i press enter it just start windows normally.

Should i writ something in the BIOS?

Thanks for your help in advance.
