Lenovo has launched a brand new budget Chromebook device with its model number set at S330, and below you can find instructions on how to factory reset it.

The Lenovo Chromebook S330 might develop some errors or it can start to run slower as time goes by and it gets old, and that is why you might be forced to wipe it clean from time to time.

If your laptop’s performance got worse lately, then you should first try and disable all the extensions that are installed on your device. Disable all extensions one by one until you find the possible problem to your laptop’s bad performance. If you can’t figure it out and the performance is still bad, then you should factory reset it.

Before starting the factory reset you should create backups for the important files. Remember that by powerwashing your Chromebook you will end up removing every single file from your device.
