Lenovo Laptop Factory Reset

Factory Reset Instructions

  1. Once your system is backed up, restart your computer. As it boots back up, push and hold the F8 key down. This action will take you to an “Advanced Boot Options” menu instead of to the usual start-up screen.
  2. The Advanced Boot Options menu has an option for “Repair Your Computer.” Select it using the arrow keys on your keyboard then push the Enter key.
  3. You will be asked to provide language information for your reset. Choose English from the menu—or whatever other language you may what your computer to be in—then click “Next.”
  4. On the next screen, you should see a “Lenovo Factory Image Restore” option. Click to launch a restore window, then click “Next.” The next page will ask you whether you want to reformat your hard drive and restore your system to factory. Check the box to approve the action, then click “Next” again. Your computer should now move forward with a system restore.
