"ive been able to do it with my other laptops"

I'm curious why you seem to be in the habit of doing this? Is it that you don't know how to fix problems & feel it's easier to start over again? When I buy a laptop, I spend at least an hour removing all the pre-packaged crapware & tweaking the system to get it to run decently. I would never want to go back to factory settings again, but that's just me.

Try tapping F10 immediately at startup rather than F8.

Can you explain this - I'm darned sure it will let you press the key.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

You are probably waiting too long to depress the keys. Try F10 as advised.

Try browsing the link below for help or consult your manual. As Advent is not sold in the USA, I have no knowledge on how to perform a factory reset.
