For restoration you must have the recovery software of your laptop to recover the system from its default settings. Assuming that you have that software you insert the cd or dvd into your cd or dvdrom drive. When turning on your computer press the boot selection key usually F11 or F12 then select the cd/dvd as your first boot and press enter. Then the recovery software will load and read the on screen instruction.

Second if you do not have the recovery softwarem, turn on your computer and tapping F8 key. By tapping the F8 will load the advance configuration and select safe mode by using arrow up or down key and press enter. When completely loading the windows to safe mode click start, programs, accessories, system tools and system restore. Ok on system restore go to date where restore example right now is march 16, go to february or january and click any date that avaible for restoration click next and click again next.

If the computer is asking for a BIOS password, you will have to have the computer disassembled in order to clear the BIOS and reinstall it.

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.

You can format-it and install-it again with the serial number from your backside of laptop. You should have one with Windows XP or something. Install from any windows cd and use your serial key. After that you have to activate your windows and make the updates.
