To restore the computer to factory settings, you can use the hidden recovery partition in the computer. Please restart and press and hold the F10 key to access the recovery partition. From the recovery tools window, please select "Restore C Drive" to get back the factory installed settings in the computer.
To reboot to factory setting you need to have the restore disk from the computer, put it in the drive and restart with the cd in the drive, if the startup screen does not start right away you need to type f11 or f6 to change startup order to cd first the the restore screen will startup and click restore factory settings
If you have the recovery CD, then put that in the drive, reboot the laptop and make sure you boot to the CD. The recovery process will start up and you can restore the laptop to it's factory settings. Make sure you have all of your documents, music, etc. backed up.
Turn your unit off.
then turn it back on.
Watch the display carefully, Press the Blue Access IBM button when you see the message
"To interrupt normal start up, press the blue Access IBM button"
Then double click on "Recover to factory contents"
Follow the instructions on the screen.
When the Recovery process finishes, press enter.
Your computer will start with the pre-installed OS, Drivers and software.
