Answers :

No it's not possible to do it with just a button or replace it to factory settings.
\015\012The T43 Comes with WinXP or OS/2 Warp or Windows 2000 Pro.
\015\012If you wanted to reset it you basically would have to format the harddrive.
\015\012You can get a older version of WinXP which is still supported by microsoft or either that you can format it and sell it without a operating system.
\015\012Or you can add/remove items you installed and remove personal info delete pretty items much within windows itself.
