Restoring Y500 to defaults

I just got this laptop, and spent a while cleaning out all the crap Lenovo ships it with.  After about a day, I've decided I hate this computer more than anything, so want to sell it.  Would be nice to just be able to reinstall the factory defaults, but, since we no longer get discs, not sure how to go about this.  Any suggestions?

You could try Lenovo's One key recovery. There's a button just behind the power socket. Shut down your laptop and press that button and then just follow the on screen instructions.Hope that helps.

Re: Restoring Y500 to defaults

So you just got it and now want to sell it after a day of using it?? Why not just return it for full credit.
