    This is the type of question that would be best answered from your owner's manual or information from the manufacturer's website. It seems each one may have a different recovery process depending on model and even sub-model.

    For instance, on a Toshiba, I saw a procedure that required the 0 be held while powering on the system. But if you can't find anything, maybe let us know the make and model so we could check for you.
