How to restore the factory settings to the harddrive?

Ok so i have this fossil of a laptop. Its not this exact laptop but i figured I'd try to ask anyway. I have a IBM Thinkpad Type 2647.

I got it from a friend, and he claims that he has never restored factory settings to the hard drive. I've done this to a handful of my old computers in the past. But for some reason i can't figure it out on this?

I heard that i needed to hold the blue Fn key at the bottom but its not working. Can anyone help me?

I think the one you need is the Access IBM button (blue) in the top row. To help you out I am including a link to the service manual for this computer. Good luck. Ralph

Did you download the service manual? Also do you have the recovery CD's that came with the system?
