    Toshiba no bootable device--insert boot disk and press any key

    try booting from a Windows installation disc. Choose the repair installation option. If this does not work, you may have to erase (format) your whole drive and start over again by reinstalling Windows from scratch.

    Before erasing the drive, you might want to pull it out, put as a second drive in another working computer or inside a USB hard drive case and download all of your information from it. Otherwise you may have a mess on your hands with lost data/documents/photos.

    I want to set back to factory mode

    I am guessing that you want to do a complete system restore back to factory, correct? If so then you realize everything on your computer will be wiped out and it will be back to what is was when it left the factory. This is an extreme change. Turn off your Lenovo. (i mean shut down and make sure it's power off) Now press on the "One Key Recovery" key at the top of your Keyboard, your Lenovo S10 should boot up. Else hold down the "One Key Recovery" key until it boot up. Now you may choose "Restore to factory settings" from the screen and proceed for the restoration. ** the restoration will first check if your windows files has been corrupted, if yes, then it will restore it to the original state and no restore is required. else it will continue with the restoration. Hope this helps...

    Need to do a system restore

    You can try by going to help by the start buttton and searching on restore/recovery and doing so. Or you can go to start, control panel and looking to see if there is a restore\recovery icon. Lastly you would have to reinstall your operating system by putting in the cd and rebooting after pressing F2 and selecting boot from CD. This WILL cause all user data to be lost so if you need it, it must be backed up first.
