I believe you're having problem with the Operating System on your computer. Unfortunately, Lenovo will not provide a product key for the Operating System since the an OEM version. What you can do is reinstall the Operating System using the One Key Recovery Sofware or the Recovery Disc that came with the computer. Follow these steps for you to be able to reinstall the Operating System using the One Key Recovery.


1. Turn off the computer.


2. Press the little button near the power button, it usually do have a drawing of an icon that looks like a horse shoe or a headset.


3. There will be a window that will appear which do have three option, One Key Antivirus, One Key Recovery and System Setup. Choose One key Recovery.


4. There will be another window that will appear which do have two option, Restore from initial backup and Restore from user backup,Choose Restore from initial back up


5. It will asked you if you want to continue, Just click on OK or YES.


6. Once done, Reboot the computer.


For Recovery Disc,


1. Insert the disc inside the drive.


2. Turn off the computer then turn it back on and keep on tapping F12


3. There will a window that will appear which do have three options, HDD,ODD/DVD/CD, and NAT, choose ODD/DVD/CD


4. It will asked you to press any key immediately, you will need to press any key immediately so that it will boot from ODD.


5. It will asked you to choose a partition, choose Disc 0 partition 1


6. Reboot computer once done.


I hope this information will be helpful. Thank you for using FixYa...

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.

How to reset my ibm thinkpad 2647


Hi langston620,
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.

I need to do a factory restore on an ibm thinkpad r31 no disks f11 takes me to boot setuo but no restore option help


When the system first starts, the following message will be shown on a blank screen:
To start the recovery program, press F11
This message will stay on the screen for about 2 seconds, this will be there every time you start it when it's powered off. If the F11 key is pressed while the message is displayed, then the system should enter the service partition.

Keep trying it because sometimes when the computer comes on you have to do it at the correct time until it catches. I've had that problem and I kept doing it over and over again. It also could mean that your recovery partition is not there. Have you had your system reinstalled before by not using the recovery or the disk? If so your whole hard drive could have been formatted so there won't be a partition to go to when pressing f11.

If that fails then a repalcement hard drive and a cd with the image on it can be obtained by going here

I want to restore my neighbor's Mirus Desktop; and via MS Recovery Console: diskpart I see a 6.25 gig-byte hidden partition; and I assume this is the restore partition. What keyboard key combination at...


#1: Shut down your computer. You must first shut your computer down to initiate the factory restore. #2: Start up your computer and as the computer logo appears (such as Dell or HP) hit "Ctrl>F11" simultaneously. This may be different for different machines, but the most common keys to hit are "Ctrl>F11." If this does not work, the F8 key has been said to work for certain machines.
#3: Select "Repair My Computer" from the list of menu options that appear and press "Enter."
#4: Choose the language settings that you would like and then click enter.
#5: Enter the administrator log in and password if it asks you for this information.
#6: Choose the factory reset option. This should reset your computer to the factory settings when you bought your machine.

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.

Hi Alex.
Try this.
Switch computer on and press ctr and the f11 key whilst it is booting up. From there you should be presented with a screen which will give you the option to restore back to factory settings.
