  • Hi Lexis6.

    Factory reset is usually performed by hitting a key or a key combination at the system's boot, to make the computer start the process using a special recovery partition (the alternative is booting up the system with the from the first disc of the recovery discs set): usually, this does not require the administrator account's password.
