some laptops require you to go in the bios and turn on the recovery option before you can use it to restore from--
called d2d in acer bios dont know what its called in asus bios
i cant restore my acer unless this is turned on in bios--be nice if they told you this--it took me ages to figure it out
f9 is usually the right key for asus recovery
The problem is that it only presents options to recover and repair, and there are no restore points. I've checked every option in the BIOS, I've hit every F button. All F9 does is bring up the Startup Repair. It just won't show me the restore to factory default option.
Andd... crap, I didn't mention I'm doing this since windows won't boot properly. All it does is show several blue lines at the very top left of the screen, and then what appears to be a thin colored line of corruption at the very top
