On a Gateway PC I think you have to press ALT + F10 during the initial boot process. Good luck.

presumably the poster has saved all personal files off the system to external media first; otherwise (s)he will be back asking how to recover them after they've been wiped duringthe factory reset...

You're going to get some anyway, lol. The best thing to do would be to back up all your personal files as mentioned above by trvlr, then take advantage of the reinstall situation & replace Vista with Windows 7 (or Linux). Vista is no longer supported by Microsoft & most software developers have dropped support as well. It is no longer a secure OS & is just an accident waiting to happen. It's your call. If you insist on sticking with it, make sure to maintain regular backups of all your important files because it's likely the lack of security updates will catch up to you sooner rather than later.
