Hi !!

Thank you for choosing Fixya.com

You can follow the steps given below.

    On an IBM Laptop system
  1. Step 1 Back up your data before starting this process.
  2. Step 2 Turn off your computer. After the computer has completely shut down, turn the laptop on.
  3. Step 3 Press the "F1" button, or the blue Access IBM button if your laptop has that option.
  4. Step 4 Choose "Restore Factory Settings" from the Menu screen that opens on your computer.
  5. Step 5 Follow all onscreen instructions. When the process is complete, the laptop is restored to factory settings.

Hope this would help.

Thanks nd Regards

I would like to format my IBM thinkpad R51. kindly let me know which function key I need to use for it to be formatted and I can get it restored back to factory settings.


HI,
Wait for the ThinkPad logo to appear on the screen a few seconds after the boot process begins. Press the "F1" key on your keyboard and you will get access to bios.

Ibm thinkpad how to clean it t settings otally and reboot factory


Hi, During the boot at the THINKPAD SCREEN press the Thinkvantage key ( Blue button ) it will launch rescue and recovery and allow you to reboot factory. This only works if you did not corrupted/deleted the rescue and recovery hidden partition on the HDD.
Otherwise you will need the rescue and recovery CD to proceed. IBM/Lenovo support should be able to provide you the CD.
thanks and have a nice day J-

Change Thinkpad to Windows XP


when you start your pc press F8 key or theF10 key on start up you have to press it several time for it to go to the system restore program. this will reinstall windows but only if you have not used the cd to change the settings on you computer it may erase all data and restore it to factory settings. You also can do this with a back up to save you file or you can transfer them to a differnt device for safe keeping.

Setting laptop back to factory settings


please be more specific in your needs, what exactly you want to restore...if you are talking about the bios settings you need to press del on boot to enter settings ...choose optimal defaults...and than press F10 to save changes....but if ya are talking about the windows settings those are too many to restore by a click...all you can do ..is go to control pannel ...look for maintainance ..or something like that ...and then you have to find sistem restore...and choose a restore point if there is one made automaticly ....I mean a previous date ....and procede to that point ....you will not loose any data or programs...the settings are the only things changed...ya might find though some empty old named folders with something you used to have in pc ...but delete meanwhile...good luck!

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.
