How do I factory restore?

Hi, I'm wondering if anyone could help me do a factory restore? I have a Satellite A305D-S6835. My Cd/Dvd drive doesn't run discs although it makes the sounds like it will run them and the light works. I've tried everything else and am really hoping a factory restore fixes it. I just don't have the money to get it repaired. Please help if you can! And thanks.

Try holding '0' (zero) as you start the computer. That will load the recovery utility, allowing you to do a complete factory recover. Do note that this will wipe all your personal data from the computer.
