I restore my IBM Thinkpad G40 no internet access now

I set the factory setting by push the IBM access button on start up now when i go to control panel i have no access to internet dsl nor wireless. My thinkpad has a wireless button which is located on the F5 button. The internet was working fine but the computer was moving really slow so i try to restore factory setting. How can i get my internet back up and running since i have no way of selecting an option to either enable or disable a network. I'm really not any good at computers. Thanks

Start by checking the power supply with an ohm meter to see if it's working, or has the proper output. If the supply is good, then the problem is most likely going to be with the power management system on the motherboard, and the motherboard will have to be replaced. This could be a serious problem, so If it's not the power supply, I would recommend that you take it to a service shop in your area to have the exact problem area tracked down. A power management system failure is common in these machines, but there are a few other replaceable board components that can cause this as well.

How do I restore a IBM Thinkpad to factory settings I have tried to logon to windows XP it open's, but but will not let me in. I have pressed F11 and got Startup Interrup Menu


If it has the blue IBM Access button on it, press that immediately after turning on the computer. It should load a page with options to run a recovery.

Restore imb thinkpad r50 to factory setting


If the recovery partition on the hard drive is still on the hard disk then -
With the ThinkPad off, push the power button and the minute you see the startup screen push the F11 button, hold it for just a moment and release it. That will take you to the rescue and recovery application

Would like to reset my ibm laptop it says my mircosoft online service is temporarily unavailable and my laptop is slower than ever


Hi and welcome to Fixya1

To reset the machine back to the factory settings, just follow these steps:
    • 1 Shutdown your machine and make sure that the charger is plugged in before doing the reset. Turn on the machine.
    • 2 Press the blue Access IBM button on your ThinkPad keyboard at the screen prompt. The screen prompt reads "To interrupt normal startup, press the blue Access IBM button." This interrupts the Windows reboot process.
    • 3 Double click "Recover to Factory Contents" at the Access IBM predesktop menu.
    • 4 Follow the recovery wizard prompts to initiate the factory restoration process. Your ThinkPad will automatically reboot upon completion.
Hope this helps!

Ibm restore to factory setting


You have not explained what is wrong with your computer.
Is the laptop working, does it boot up into Windows?
What are you trying to restore?
Are you trying to get into a previous Restore Point?
The Access button takes you into the BIOS, you can change the BIOS settings back to the Default settings (ie the factory default settings).
It is difficult to offer a solution without knowing the exact nature of the problem.
