With this, there is a hidden partition on your hdd to restore the default setting... Turn off your computer. Once it is off. Beside the power button, there is a small button. It has a headset logo or inverted U logo. Press and hold that until you can see windows loading files. then you just need to select one key recovery. select restore to initial back up or default settings. then wait.

1. Turn off your compter.

2. Look for theOne Key Recovery button on your PC. It's near the power button.

3. Press the OKR button, wait until your computer turns on.

4. After Windows loading files you'll be routed on Lenovo One Key Rescue System.

5. Select One Key Recovery then, select restore from Intial back up.

Usually it will take 20-30 minutes for the whole process to be done. Once it's finish just reboot your computer.

If this fails, then call them.

Hi, If your issue is your computer wont turn on or wont display anything, you could try power draining by removing the battery and unpluging the ac adapter and press and hold the power button for 15 sec while the battery and ac is out then plug it all back then turn on your computer. If your problem is with the Operating system like XP, Vista or Win 7, you can restore your system to its original factory settings but just a warning it would delete eveything on your computer so you might consider backing up all you important files. Here's the procedure, first make sure that the ac adapter is plugin so that it would not interupt the process if the the battery runs out, then look for a small button just beside the power button that a arching logo on it or the word "NOVO" then press once that small button without turning your computer on because it will just turn on when you press that small button, then it would go directly to the One Key Recovery Option then choose one key recovery on the options given then it will guide you to the whole process of restoring your system to its original factory settings. Hope it helps

Try launching the One Key Recovery program.
1. Back up all files that you wish to keep from the C: drive
2. Turn off the computer (no flashing lights).
3. Press the Lenovo Care Button (small button with upside down arrow or word NOVO written on it).
4. Select System Recovery (very much different from the above mentioned System Restore).
5. Select to restore to factory default settings / initial settings.

Just bought Lenovo S10 and so unlucky that window crashed. So have to restore my Lenovo S10 to factory settings. Can’t really find how ot restore to factory settings in Lenovo S10 from the User Manual. So check from google, after many many search, finally found the solution.
For Lenovo S10 to restore to factory settings follow the steps below:-

  • 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

I was trying to restore my c disk parytition and the power failed. The boot reccord is missing. How to recover?


Since you were trying to "restore", just restart the "restore" process (by booting either from the built-in Lenovo restore-repair-recovery partition, or from CD/DVD) and it will recreate a valid boot-record.

New Lenovo Y430 keyboard and touchpad does not work


Finally, I decided and insisted on being given a replacement for another defective Y430 unit. I am just so glad that the problematic 2 units were discovered before the 7-days allowance for return/replacement of defective units. I now have this third unit of Lenovo to replace the first two defective ones. I do hope this works well and will not make me do a fourth trip to the seller for any returns/ replacements/complaints again. :)

Quick launch button for Dolby for Y430 36Q not working forxp


if the OS is changed to Xp then you will have to download the drivers for the hot keys from consumer support.lenovo.com and then you will be able to use all the quick launch facilities provided.Simply visit the site and choose your options as notebook and y 430 and you will be directed on that page.Remember tyo install patch for Xp before installing any driver as this is mainly for the sound but helps in connecting the PCI bridge to pci express as well.
