Blue ThinkVantage button cannot enter ThinkVantage Rescue and Recovery mode on hard boot

My notebook R60e is pre-installed with Windows XP professional edition. After doing a recovery, the blue button stop respond to enterThinkVandtage mode at the start of hard boot. The blue button can function normally (i.e. enter ThinkVantage Productivity Centre)  in Windows XP environment.
 
How to call back the normal function of the Blue ThinkVantage button so that I can enter rescue and recovery mode on hard boot?
 
Thanks

Hi hkjordan, welcome to the forum,
 
do you still get the message prompting you to press the blue button?
If yes, try pressing F11 instead, (it's the old method which still works).
If no, it would seem that your mbr, (master boot record) is damaged. The good news is that there is a utility to repair the mbr, the bad news is you will need a usb floppy.
 
Regards

Andy

Thanks,
 
By using the downloaded utility,  the MBR of my hard disk is replaced with the downloaded one. Now I can enter the Rescue and Recovery mode by pressing F11, although the blue button still no respond.
 
Thanks again.
