Select models, with Microsoft Windows, have the ability to have the Operating System reinstalled from a hidden partition built into the computer.
Note: During the process, all data stored on your computer will be overwritten. This means all your files, such as email and photos, will be erased. Therefore, we recommend making a backup of all personal data before starting the recovery process.
Note: For video guided assistance using the eRecovery Management program to restore your computer please visit our How do I restore my computer using the eRecovery Management program? answer.

How To Restore Lenovo b460 Problems plz halp me

Hi Ashok_bpn,
If you'd like to restore the system to the default factory setting, just process the One Key Recovery. But if you wanted to just restore the system to the last good know congifuration, I recommend to do a windows system restore. If you're not familiar on how to use the One Key Recovery please follow the steps below.
One Key Recovery (OKR)
Reminder: Please back up all your data and files before doing a One Key recovery. Be advised that during the process all of your data will be wiped out.
1. Turn off the computer completely.
2. Boot up the system by pressing the small button beside the power that has an arc arrow sign ( or an inverted arrow sign) once.
3. System will boot up. Wait until the windows loading a file appeared.
4. Now you gonna have a One key Rescue/Recovery console.
5. Please choose One key recovery then restore system from initial back up.
6. Just continue with the instructions and wait until the progress bar reaches 100%.
7. Once it reaches 100%, just click on finish, done then select reboot.
8. Wait until system boots up again. It will now give you the initial set up for the first use of the Operating system.
-- You should good for now, just continue to follow the instructions.
Hope it helps.
Thank you for using FixYa.

I have a asus Eee pc 701sd and i can,t get the restore disc to work.

If you have configured to boot the system from the restore cd/dvd then it should work,otherwise there's no way to restore the system using that disc.

But if you have ealierly set or create Restore point in your system,then you can easily restore it even if your system fails to boot.

Download Hiren's Boot CD and burn the ISO disc and boot,and you can easily repair or restore the system with your ealier restore point.Below is the link for Hiren's Boot CD.

Good Luck

Advent notebook not booting.

ahh..yess...that can happen...try it with the restore disc, and press F2 while booting up. This will take you to the settings and bios, where you can disable the hard drive, and make the cd the boot you know of this area in the computer?
