You may need the system restore disk to complete that task if the computer has other issues going on.

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 all settings to my lenovo a269i mobile thru pc


Is it a think pad ?
Power off your Thinkpad.
Press and hold the "F1" key and turn your Thinkpad on, still holding the "F1" key down.


Release the "F1" key when you hear repeating beeps. Wait for the "IBM BIOS Setup Utility" to load.

Select "Startup" using the arrow keys and press "Enter."
Select "Boot" or "Startup Sequence" and press "Enter."

Select "CD-ROM Drive."
Press the "F6" key repeatedly until "CD-ROM Drive" sits at the top of the list.

Insert your recovery CD into your Thinkpad's CD-ROM drive.
If you have multiple recovery CDs, insert the CD that has "Disc 1" on its label.

Press "F10" to save your changes and exit the BIOS Utility.
Select "Yes" and press "Enter" when the "Setup Confirmation" window appears.

Your laptop will restart. Wait for the Recovery Utility to load.

Select "Restore to Factory Specifications" to erase the contents of your hard drive and reinstall the Windows version and drivers that your Thinkpad originally came with.


Follow the Recovery Utility's onscreen instructions.
When prompted to insert another disc, do so according to the numerical labels on your recovery CDs (e.g., insert "Disc 2" after "Disc 1" and "Disc 3" after "Disc 2").

Your Thinkpad restarts when the restore process finishes. Power off your Thinkpad.

Hold down the "F1" key and power on your laptop to access the "IBM BIOS Setup Utility."


Select "Boot" or "Startup Sequence" and press "Enter."
Press "F9."

Select "Setup Defaults" from the menu and press "Enter" so that your Thinkpad no longer boots from the CD-ROM drive.

Press "F10" and select "Yes" to confirm your changes.
Your Thinkpad will restart and load your newly installed operating system.

Restore imb thinkpad r50 to factory setting


If the recovery partition on the hard drive is still on the hard disk then -
With the ThinkPad off, push the power button and the minute you see the startup screen push the F11 button, hold it for just a moment and release it. That will take you to the rescue and recovery application

If your company has it lock down so you can't do many administrative tasks, you may want to try this. http://www.user-guides.co.uk/cddownload/IBM/IBMThinkPad/IBM-ThinkPad-R50e-XP-Driver-CD-Recovery-Restore-Disk-109132.html

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.
