Question about IBM ThinkPad R40 2897 Notebook
I dont have the option at boot menu to reset restore so how do i factory reset the laptop
Turn on laptop
Select set factory defaults
If what you are asking is to pretend like you just bought the laptop and it has no protections from the previous owner, then take your OS cd and format and reinstall the OS.

Turn your unit off.
then turn it back on.
Watch the display carefully, Press the Blue Access IBM button when you see the message
"To interrupt normal start up, press the blue Access IBM button"
Then double click on "Recover to factory contents"
Follow the instructions on the screen.
When the Recovery process finishes, press enter.
