How to Restart Lenovo Laptop: A Complete Guide

In the unlikely event that your device becomes unresponsive, try a force reboot. Press and hold the power key for up to 30 seconds to perform a force reboot on the device.

If you are experiencing issues with your Lenovo laptop, a factory reset may be just what you need to get it back up and running. In this article, we will show you two different ways to factory reset your Lenovo laptop.

Method 1: Factory Reset from Desktop

First, go to the search bar on your desktop and type in “reset.” Click on “Reset this PC” under System Settings. On the next screen, click on “Advanced startup” and then “Restart.” From there, you will see a few options. If you just want to reset your operating system, choose the “Keep my files” option. If you want a complete reset, choose the “Remove everything” option. Keep in mind that this will erase all data on your computer, so make sure to back up your files before proceeding.

Method 2: Factory Reset from Recovery Options

If you cannot access your desktop, you can still factory reset your Lenovo laptop through the Recovery Options. To access these options, turn off your computer and turn it back on. As it is turning on, start tapping on the F9, F10, or F11 key (depending on your model). This should take you to the Advanced Options screen. From there, click on “Troubleshoot” and then “Reset this PC.” You will again have the option to keep your files or remove everything.

Keep in mind that accessing the Recovery Options through the function keys is becoming more and more obsolete with newer computers. If you cannot access the Recovery Options, your only option may be to reinstall the operating system fresh. You can find a link to reinstall Windows 10 in the description below.

In conclusion, a factory reset can be a useful tool for getting your Lenovo laptop back on track. Just make sure to back up your data and choose the right method for your needs. If you have any questions, check the frequently asked questions in the description or leave a comment.
