I have a lenovo 3000 n100, running windows xp pro sp3.
A few days ago i was trying to restore it to factory default settings, and i realized i dont know how..
i heard to hit f11 on start up, but it doesent work, maybe the previous owner deleted the restore partition, i dont know. But if anyone could help me, it would be great.
some of the problems i am having, internet explorer will be working just fine, than it freezes up, i cant end the program or anything,, and it wont respond at all. but i can minimize it and open another internet explorer window. and sometimes the laptop wont respond when i try to restart it, and sometimes i turn it on and it boots to the desktop, but the icons dont appear, its just a plain desktop,, so i have to restart it..
im not the origional owner so i have no cd or recovery disk.
it wont let me run system restore either..
someone please help. i just wanna wipe it clean and start from, (out of the box state)
