At first, watch your language please.

Secondly, look through instructions came with laptop.

Thirdly, there's a NOVA recovery feature that's responsible for restoring system to original Vista state. You can't make a backup by Lenovo software in Y510/Y710/U110 (you didn't mention your model - just runnig around and crying your rights and ambitions) - only restore.

  The actual message heading says Y510 as the model and sorry about the bloody part i`ll change it to ruddy:-)More polite no doubt.Yes unlike sony there is no recovery feature or software or the ability to make a system recovery backup dvd.

turn your laptop off and then push the novo button that is next to the power button.  follow the simple instructions and it should be done in about 30 mins.

 

note:  move all data/files that you want to be save into the d drive.
