There is no reset button on a thinkpad.

To reset system to factory you have to reistall it.

To restart a unit that does not shut down, hold start button (or tab) down until unit shuts off, or unplug AC charger and remove battery at same time.

To reset a bios pass word you need to tale apart the laptop and remove bios coin battery.
