Default [Q] Factory Reset

I know I'm probably going to facepalm, but I can't quite figure out how to factory reset on the A7-I'm finding that it just isn't quite what I was needing when I bought it, so I want to return it virgin to CompUSA. If anyone could help me, I would appreciate it.

TIA

Default *facepalm*

Who would have thought to look online at the user manual? Not I-until I did. I got it and sorry to clog the forum with garbage.

Hardly clogging the forums, but for anyone interested:

WARNING: This will wipe your device, this post is informational so proceed at your own risk.

Press power like you were turning on the device until the green lights come on
Release, then press (and hold?) power until you see "Hold Power for Recovery Mode" on the screen
Release, then press and hold power again until you see the recovery menu start to boot
It will reboot to an android with an exclamation point, this is the recovery menu
Then to navigate this screen, use HOME to display the menu text, Search = Up, Back = Down, Menu = enter.

If you're factory resetting, restore to default and clear cache.
