I found my old Recovery CD that goes with my laptop although when I first got the laptop, it was on Vista - well I had an XP disk and installed it since I prefer it over Vista, now for the question, if I use the recovery CD will it put the laptop to Vista, or XP or does it completely delete everything (OS and all).

I'm asking because I don't know what factory settings means. Since it came with Vista preinstalled I'm not sure if factory settings are right when it was made or after the OS was put on it.

Thanks! =D

If its a Factory Restore disk it will return the computer to the way it was when first pulled out of the box. In your case it would delete everything off the drive and replace it with Vista.
