To follow the factory reset steps turn off the power on the thinkpad first.

Now power it on and press the “F11” key after the ThinkPad Recovery Menu appears. Enable the “Restore Factory Defaults” option and follow the on-screen instructions to reinstall and customize your Windows operating system.

The restore process also reinstalls other third-party software included on the computer when you first purchased it.

Please Note: Reset process will only work or initiate if the factory restore partition is not damaged or formatted.
