Restore to Factory Settings (Laptop)

I have a Toshiba laptop here. I have backup-ed all the files I needed. The onky remaining step is now restoring it to factory settings. I have tried pressing "0" key when turning on the laptop and repeatedly hit "0" key until the Toshiba logo disappears. However, it did not do anything and instead, the laptop comes with a "Starting Windows" screen and proceeds to desktop.

Please do help If you need extra information regarding my laptop code(s), please tell me where to find them and I'll look it up!

Additional info: Have I deleted my Disk Partition or something? How can I check this? I know that it is required or something....

If you haven't looked at this before then please do so now:

Disconnect any peripherals and then make sure you hold down the "0" key continuously on switching on the laptop.

I have just read your previous threads and it begs the question. "Why do you want to revert to the factory settings?" I see you haven't completed your system specifications as requested! Also did you change your anti virus software?

Becayse I gfigured I have too many errors, e.g.: Failing to download Windows Update, extreme poor performances compared to other computers with the same specification as mine, constant lagging, troubleshooting problems, etc. Emm, I'll fill the system specification out, but I don't understand some things....

My antivirus is still Avast.

Nope, no installation CD, only a "BARAA100V2 ADSL2/2 + Ethernet router" CD here in my laptop bag.

If you follow the advice your were given before you would not need to to get aany other information. Here it is again:
This tutorial will help you do that.

System Info - See Your System Specs

Did your laptop come with Windows 7 Ultmate preloaded? If so have you got a sticker underneath the laptop showing the licence key? Don't quote that key number here.
