How do I do a restore factory settings on an IBM T42p laptop running Windows XP without any CDs?
Posted on 2009-12-18
I have an IBM T42p that I purchased in 2004, and it's had some problems with viruses etc and I'd like to do a complete restore and wipe it clean. (All my files are backed up). The problem is, I tried hitting the Access IBM button and F11 during setup but they provide the same options and nothing leads me to factory restore. I don't have any of the restore CDs for the laptop or the operating system- am I totally out of luck? I just want it to go back to factory settings.
