Novo button not working



I have lenovo Y500 laptop, I bought it in Jan 2007, recently I noticed its one key recovery feature is not working the problem is when I press the novo button it simply starts the windows instead of going into the recovery interface.

how can I get to the recovery interface? I have used the recovery feature many times.


I have not changed the partition size or any other configuration,

any help would be appreciated

Re: Novo button not working

try to re-install power management and/or one key recover.

if it doesn't work, if you have recovery disks, try to use them, if they don't work either, contact lenovo support.


( before all make sure you haven't made any changes on volumes and sizes )
