THINKPAD EDGE E420 FACTORY RESTORE

Dear all expert!

Please help me in solving the following problem on urgent basis.

 

I have install MATLAB 32BIT on my E420 I5, running 64BIT Window 7 Home premium. Then when i restart it, it did't boot properly but always restarting. Some how i manage to boot it by pressing f8, f11 etc..then i try backup all the system to its dedicated backup partition where factory restore file were present already(i think the original factory restor point is overwritten) but it give error that no suffient space is available to backup system in this partition. So i choose Partion D and the backup is successfull.

Then i uninstall the Matlab and recent window updates. But problems did't  solved though. Atlast i press FACTORY RESTORE but unfortunatly it restore to the recently RESTORE point...all partion, data, and the PROBLEMS are STILL exist ..only installed programms missing. I saved my important data to USB.

 

Now my queries are;

 

1) How to get back to the pre-MATLAB INSTALLED position. or

2)How to undo the writing of factory restore file and get back the origonal factory restore point.

 

If both of these not possible, then what to do next? Fresh window installation and formate complete system or some thing else? 

 

Many Thanks in advance.
