recovery discs which came with it. If you do not have them, Lenovo has a

website. If your laptop is shot and you don't have another PC handy
with a CD/DVD burner, you may just want to buy the recovery discs from

Just bought Lenovo S10 and so unlucky that window crashed. So have to restore my Lenovo S10 to factory settings. Can’t really find how ot restore to factory settings in Lenovo S10 from the User Manual. So check from google, after many many search, finally found the solution. For Lenovo S10 to restore to factory settings follow the steps below:-
Turn off your Lenovo. (i mean shut down and make sure it’s power off)
Now press on the “One Key Recovery” key at the top of your Keyboard, your Lenovo S10 should boot up. Else hold down the “One Key Recovery” key until it boot up.
Now you may choose “Restore to factory settings” from the screen and proceed for the restoration. ** the restoration will first check if your windows files has been corrupted, if yes, then it will restore it to the original state and no restore is required. else it will continue with the restoration
hi rwestover, to configure this to factory setting, turn off the pc. Then upon turning on the pc, repeatedly press F2, then select Lenovo One Key Rescue system, once there select Lenovo One Key recovery, then select restore to factory default, then click next, then click start to restore from initial state.
Hope this help...
