Having problems with your IBM ThinkPad T20 2647 Notebook ?

How can i restore it to how it was when it came from factory


Answers :

You would have got the recovery cds with this laptop. so just use the cd 1 and boot from the cd by entering to the bios and go to the boot device priority and then select the cd/dvd drive as the first boot device.save the settings by pressing F10 and restart the pc. it will boot from cd and then follow the onscreen instructions.
If you dont have the recovery cds then keep tapping the F11 key to enter into the recovery drive.
