How do i reset a Lenovo Thinkpad T500


Reset could mean one of several things. I assume you know how to simply reboot it. If it is hung you can hold the power button down for about 6 seconds to turn it off.

If you forgot the password, contact Lenovo support at http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/
Provide them with proof of purchase and original receipt to prove ownership of laptop.

If you want to restore factory defaults then installed on the ThinkPad T500 is a program called Rescue and Recovery, which helps you diagnose and fix problems with the Windows operating system. To access this software, reboot your T500 and press the oval-shaped blue ThinkVantage button -- located on the upper-left area of your keyboard -- when the ThinkPad logo appears. When the Rescue and Recovery menu appears, choose the option that describes what you want to do. Follow the directions on the screen to run the appropriate action.

If you need the recovery disks then try

I need to restore my lenovo g550.. everythings messed up and one key recovery no longer works. ive also used the f11 method and that doesnt give the option for factory restore which is what i need. Thanks...




I believe you're having problem with the Operating System on your computer. Unfortunately, Lenovo will not provide a product key for the Operating System since the an OEM version. What you can do is reinstall the Operating System using the One Key Recovery Sofware or the Recovery Disc that came with the computer. Follow these steps for you to be able to reinstall the Operating System using the One Key Recovery.


1. Turn off the computer.


2. Press the little button near the power button, it usually do have a drawing of an icon that looks like a horse shoe or a headset.


3. There will be a window that will appear which do have three option, One Key Antivirus, One Key Recovery and System Setup. Choose One key Recovery.


4. There will be another window that will appear which do have two option, Restore from initial backup and Restore from user backup,Choose Restore from initial back up


5. It will asked you if you want to continue, Just click on OK or YES.


6. Once done, Reboot the computer.


For Recovery Disc,


1. Insert the disc inside the drive.


2. Turn off the computer then turn it back on and keep on tapping F12


3. There will a window that will appear which do have three options, HDD,ODD/DVD/CD, and NAT, choose ODD/DVD/CD


4. It will asked you to press any key immediately, you will need to press any key immediately so that it will boot from ODD.


5. It will asked you to choose a partition, choose Disc 0 partition 1


6. Reboot computer once done.


I hope this information will be helpful. Thank you for using FixYa...

Do you have your cds that came with your computer? I have fixed that problem on Gateway, Fujitsu and Dell where the Windows Update killed that feature and had to restore it. Please post back if you still have a problem with that. Lenovo (IBM) also has an excellent support site.

I have Lenovo Notbook but OS has been distroy.now how can i install Win XP.Bootable Dos CD is Working but Setup is not working. Please can you help me ?


There should be a rescue and recovery part of your computer. To do this, turn on the computer and when the ThinkPad screen displays, press the blue rectangular ThinkVantage button in the upper left of your keyboard. This should bring you to the Rescue and Recovery applications which is stored on a hidden partition on your hard drive (and thus cannot be harmed by whatever destroyed the OS). From there, read the different options and you should find one that lets you restore your operating system that came with the computer.

If that doesn't work, go to Lenovo's web site and see if you can contact their support and ask for restoration CDs.
