Forced to Shutdown on boot-up. Messed by wrong usage of Combofix

\015 Brand new Acer Aspire 4930G. Got messed up because I 'combofix' without reading the instructions carefully. Now I need to invoke the eRecovery Partition to restore the laptop to factory settings. How do I do that as all I have now on bootup is a screen that gives me only one choise i.e. to 'shutdown'I guess the root is to press ,f2. on boot-up. where do I go from there? or is there a nother way to access the eRecovery partition to automatically get the laptop re-instated to factory settings.Thank youAlan\015
