You should be able to do it with the recovery disk that came with the PC, otherwise, you will just have to re-install windows.

I wanna reset my lapoto to factory settings


If you created a recovery disk on your computer you can put that in and restore your system. Sometimes this is also built in when you first turn on your computer and you can just press a button to go into recovery mode.

T43 kill switch and reload windows info please my computer has been infected with a worm and many trojans it will not llow me to go into control pnel or get to dos to kill it and reinsert the disk to...


At this point i would call your Current Operating system dead. If you can boot into XP and move and documents or pictures you want to keep onto a USB drive. Once this is done, I can not guarintee the files will not be infected but, if you MUST keep some of your files, it is worth a try.

From power off, Boot your T43, pressing the Blue IBM ACCESS button when the screen first turns on. just keep pressing it until the screen turns to Loading IBM Access and recovery. This is a hidden partition on your hard drive, (safe from that pesky worm and trojans) which contains the backup files needed to completely restore your comp to factory default.

In here you will want to select continue to get the initial screen to go away, navigate over to the left hand bar, and one of the options will allow you to completely restore to factory settings, select it, and run through the pop-ups. once you have done this it will take about 40 minutes to run, and boot up with a CLEAN and fresh version of XP, run Windows update and start installing your programs you lost. Best of Luck.

Is there a way to master reset the IBM T43 Thinkpad


No it's not possible to do it with just a button or replace it to factory settings.
The T43 Comes with WinXP or OS/2 Warp or Windows 2000 Pro.
If you wanted to reset it you basically would have to format the harddrive.
You can get a older version of WinXP which is still supported by microsoft or either that you can format it and sell it without a operating system.
Or you can add/remove items you installed and remove personal info delete pretty items much within windows itself.
Happy Holidays
