Welcome to the Community Forums jetpropeled!


Nice to have you here!


Try to perform a OneKey Recovery/Rescue action on your Y560 laptop.

To do that, press the small button that's next to your laptop's Power button.


Please take note that this will erase all user data that you have on the device.


If that won't work, you may also download the Recovery Media file for your device through this link.


Let us know what will happen.
