    Blue Button (next to volume) before boot. Follow the wizard that pops up and do a "Factory Restore".

    Make sure you have backed up ALL of your documents, music, pictures, etc. to an external device BEFORE you start this process as it will wipe your system drive clean.

    You should burn off the recovery discs, in case you want to upgrade the hard drive. Don't forget to make a backup of the SWTools folder as well. It contains all the software and drivers installed on your machine. Start>Programs>ThinkVantage>Create Recovery Media.

    i have made the recovery media through thinkvantage but i dont have the 7 recovery disks. i cant restore it to factory without it.
    do you think this is good?

    EDIT: the blue button takes me to the page where it asks me to insert the product cd.
    I do have a regular XP boot CD. can this lead me to factory resotre?

    -thanks!

    I wouldn't download a recovery disc.

    Have you tried making the recovery media again?? Go to start and type "recovery" and select "Create product recovery media". This should let you create your 7 recovery discs (assuming you still have the recovery partition "Q" by default).

    You can use DVDs too, which only uses two to three discs.

    No actually i downloaded the tvtrnr42_1016en file from Lenovo site. Its a recovery unit it says.
    Ive tried it but it only gave me a single disk rescue & Recovery Startup Disk so i inserted this disk and reboot the computer. it took me to rescue recovery 4 and i followed all the way to factory restore but when it restarted to install the 7 disk part, i was stuck.


    Now i just installed my XP cd. can i still get the factory restore with a non-original windows installed?

    what exactly is the "Q"?

    EDIT: Im not too successful with the download either. 160kb in 5hrs! and the iso is 4gb.


    @ ZaZ: i have a CDRW/DVDROM. no dvd burn for me. =(
