The "one key recovery" button is to be pressed instead of the power button to turn the computer on. It will then give you an option to boot to recovery.

Need recovery disk for hp mini 2140


Hi

you could try this if it helps


There are two ways to access Roxio BackOn Track to recovery the computer, either through the boot menu, or through the Windows Start menu.
    You can use the boot menu to restore your computer to a previous working state or to return the computer to the state it was in before the last time it was restored.
    1. Press the power button to turn on the HP Mini.
    2. Press and hold down the f6 key to open the Windows Boot Manager, use the down arrow key to select Roxio BackOnTrack , and then press the enter key to open Roxio BackOn Track.
    If you can access Windows, in addition to restoring your computer to a previous working state, you use other options, such as Disaster Recovery.
    1. Click Start , All Programs , Roxio , BackOnTrack , and then BackOnTrack Home to open Roxio BackOn Track

    Hope this helps you

My Lenovo ideapad z565 with Windows 7 does not boot after the Windows logo appears. How can I restore it to it's factory settings by using the onekey recovery (F11)? I already did that but nothing...


For you to perform One Key Recovery, it is done by pressing the OKR button next to power button when the computer is off..(OKR or One key recovery is a very small button usually next/ near the power button that has an inverted U-shaped arrow and usually, some models, the color is orange button)..Select "One key recovery" from the options and next, select "Restore from Initial Back up" after that, you may select "start" to perform OKR..
Just in case OKR button is no longer working, you may ask for the recovery CD's from lenovo to manually install windows.

Lenovo Y410, It does not boot. Throws error: There was problem in staring windows due to some error. How do I get to start windows in safe mode?


Welcome to FixYa

It seems that you are having problems booting to windows. There are a number of steps you can try to fix this issue.

1. boot to safe mode. Start tapping F8 right after the computer turns on. This would cause the system to boot to windows advanced boot menu. Once you see the advanced boot menu then just choose safe mode. If you managed to boot to safe mode then you can perform system restore from here. To run system restore just click on start, all programs, system tools, then click on system restore, once system restore has been launced choose a date when the computer was working fine

2. You can also try to boot to windows recovery environment. to do this keep tapping F8 right after the computer turns on. choose the option "repair my computer". The system would now boot to windows recovery environment. From here you can run startup repair and system restore

3. If none of the above steps work then you can use the One Key Recovery feature of a lenovo Y410. Please note that this would reset your computer to its factory image so this would cause you to LOSE DATA on the system. Before you use this feature make sure that you have a back up of all of you data. Note that the computer must be turned off. Press the NOVO button on the computer. refer to the image for its location on your computer

Pressing this button while the computer is off would launch the one key recovery of lenovo. From here you can restore the system to its factory condition.


Hope this helps

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
