I'm trying to reformat the computer as it's in a bit of a mess and I think it's probably time to do it.
Previously when I did this, I had a partition on the HDD with a recovery section and an option in the Start menu to restore to factory settings.
However, my computer went into be fixed about a year ago now and the guys made a mess of it and ended up having to reformat the drive then for me. Unfortunately, he deleted this partition and with it, the option in my Start menu to restore to factory settings.
I have a recovery disc I made when I got the computer, but am not sure what I'm doing with this. I also have no Windows disc as it came pre-installed. The remainder of my drivers I can get off the internet so I'm not fussed about that.
Is there anyway I can do a reformat or do I need either A) a valid copy of Windows or B ) to take it back to a different computer shop as the one I originally went to has gone bust since?
Any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated.
