Having problems with your Lenovo 3000 Y410 Notebook ?

Lenovo- dont know model, has preinstalled XP on hidden parition, what is the function key to reload operating system?


Answers :

Turn off the notebook. If yours is an Ideapad or 3000 series, press the Novo button. If you're on Thinkpad, I think it's called the ThinkVantage button... basically, it's the button that works (when Windows is on) to change the power scheme (in Ideapad) or to access one-button solution (in ThinkPad).
