I want to restore my laptop to factory settings, but I don't have a Windows 7 installation CD. I was just wondering if, when I restore to factory settings (since I don't have another point to restore to), will my laptop be wiped completely? Since I don't have any installation CDs or anything, I don't want to restore it to factory settings if it'll wipe it completely.
My confusion of the distinction is: will it wipe my laptop blank or restore it to the point it was at when I started it following purchasing it (all the basic programs and such already installed)?
Thank you for reading.
