I want to reset my laptop to factory settings


If you have a Factory Recovery Partition, Reboot and use the procedure in this forum: http://forums.lenovo.com/t5/R-and-L-Series-ThinkPad-Laptops/Product-Recovery-Windows-XP-ThinkPad-R50e/td-p/92036 OR, If you have the Factory Recovery Disks, put Disk 1 in the CD ROM and reboot, OR contact IBM for a Set of Factory Recovery Disks, if available.

I have IBM R50e Celeron laptop, i want know whether it has wireless lan facility. I could see wireless sign on it.


If you see the wireless LED light glowing, the defenitely it will have the wireless facility. There might be a harware and a software switch for IBM Laptops. Hardware switch is on the left front panel of the Laptop. To find the software control of Wireless, Press Fn and F5 which will open up a Black window and you can switch ON or OFF the wireless.
Hope this helps. Good Luck ~SmokinJoe~

Can i use DDR2-800 ram for ibm r50e pc notebook


Sorry, no. The R50e series uses only DDR laptop memory.

For determining memory options w/o even opening the PC, try:

Can't boot and forgot bios password on ibm r50e


Yikes. You've set a password on the BIOS and don't remember it?

Well, most manufacturers set a "backdoor" password on the bios that will allow you to get in. It used to be the backdoor PW for IBM was "merlin" but that may no longer be the case. If you absolutely cannot get in, then your option is to open the case to the laptop and disconnect the CMOS battery for about 15 seconds and then reconnect it. That will clear the CMOS to the factory defaults.

I wish you well with this.
Thanks for using FixYa!!
