Hi. My name is***** you for your question.

When you pressed the Novo button was the laptop turned off?

I'm not sure which side of your model it will be on

but it's next to the icon that looks like this (see attachment)

it was powered off.

Thank you. When you pressed the button did the laptop turn on and display the Novo menu

from which you could select OneKey Recovery?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
after a bit. Every time I've tried it I get a different error message. Most often, it's looking for installation disks.

Thanks. If it can't invoke the recovery partition it means the partition has become corrupted or was altered

in some way. You'll need to order recovery medial from Lenovo. Have the laptop serial number handy:
