I had already checked the link above before posting this.
My main problem is that when i try F8 and repair your computer, it still boots normally and doesn't go into the repair mode.
I want to restore my Laptop to factory defaults.
Please advise.

Try tapping F8 more frequently after the first beep when you are in the BIOS POST. I think F8 needs to be hit just before the Windows splash screen. If you miss it then Windows just starts.
