Hello all. I hope someone here can end a few week's misery for me and help me out.
A friend asked me to repair his computer. It's an Acer M1641 desktop. After inspection I discovered that the motherboard was faulty. I replaced it with a Gigabyte board, and tried to boot up. That's when he told me that he had an error message saying that some files were corrupt. I had no success in getting Windows Vista to run. I tried a system restore from within the options that come up but to no avail. I tried te repair the system but again no success. Ultimately I reckon it'll have to go back to factory settings and begin again.
Herein lies the problem, as I can't get it back to factory settings. I tried Alt + F10, but it didn't even function! Any tips would be helpful in this little problem.
