You should have a "recovery disc" on your computer hard drive already...
Look in "All Programs" and you should see a way to make the recovery discs.
(If not then you may have to buy the recovery discs)
You can use the recovery mode to bring your computer back to an earlier time when it was working right.
Left click on "Start">All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>System Restore

To restore your T23 Laptop back to factory defaults we can use the partition created in your Hard Drive for restoration, see steps below.
Note: Before doing this make sure that you have backed up all personal data on your Hard drive that important to you. if no data needs to be backed up see below thanks.
Turn your computer OFF.
As soon as you turn the computer ON keep on tapping F11, when the system starts to beep you stop tapping F11.
It should bring you to a page for the Recovery of your operating system.
This will give your options to restore you system back to factory defaults.
If ever it ask for what Windows to install just select the windows that you have previously and most likely there only be one in the list.
After the restoration has finished it may or may not give you an option to reboot your Laptop, if not just press and hold down CTRL+ALT+Del keys to restart your Laptop this should bring your system back to factory defaults.
Regarding the time frame I really am not sure how long this should take, maybe 30 mins to an hour maybe.
I Hope that this can help your restore your Laptop back to defaults, this is as far as I can help, have a nice day.
use the system restore option or download a program called system rescue and run that or format HD. The system rescue program will erase everything and require re-installation of windows. System restore will bring back to original settings.
Try booting into SAFE MODE by pressing F8 after you turn on computer and before Windows logo appears. If you are able to start Windows in safe mode, you may be able to ROLL BACK your system to an earlier date. In the START menu search box, type RESTORE. This should bring up the SYSTEM RESTORE menu. Choose the RECOMMENDED RESTORE option first and see if that fixes the problem. If not, go back and select CHOOSE DIFFERENT RESTORE POINT and select an earlier date.
If you want to restore your laptop to factory setting: You should insert your "recovery disk to the CD/DVD ROM. and then shutdown the laptop.
Now; boot your laptop using the recovery disk(boot the laptop from CD/DVD rom) This will no need to input the password: its either you have to restore the system without deleting the existing files or you have to partition and format the hard drive. formatting hard drive you will end up with fresh copy of system files. same as first day when you purchase the laptop.
be sure to install the driver if there's any.
However; if you tend to do by supplying the password. iguess all factory installation has no password. you have to strike the enter without supplying any password.
