You should be able to push F11 or (if it has one) the blue ThinkVantage Key when you start from a cold start. This brings you to the product recovery screen, and if the product recovery partition is intact, then you should be able to recover to Factory Specifications.

If the Recovery Partition is gone or damaged, then you need to order recovery DVD's from Lenovo Support.

When you first start the computer you will see that it says to press F11 to access the product recovery program. Press F11 and you will be presented with a menu. You can do a full recovery or a partial recovery.

If your recovery partition is not available you can try Lenovo OneKey Recovery:


Last resort is to order recovery disc from Lenovo service.

I have just tried to help colleague to fix a Lenovo G570.  The notebook has serious disk errors and I have tried to launch one touch recovery but it fails and shows only a mouse icon with a background wallpaper.

So, if the HDD does not have any problem, you can launch one key recovery by:-

1. Power down the notebook;
2. Press the "one Key" button (the look of the button is shown below) instead of the power button to turn on the notebook for launching the Lenovo OneKey Recovery and the "one Key" is located on the right side of the power button; and
3. Have a coffee and follow the on-screen instructions as it will take very long to recover.
