Won't boot in safe mode


Starting an IBM Thinkpad T43 in safe mode allows you to troubleshoot technical issues that you otherwise couldn't. Often when a system has a virus or other type of malicious program, safe mode is the only way to locate and delete the problem. In safe mode, only the computer's essential programs are enabled, and only the files necessary to running the system are in use. Learn how to start an IBM Thinkpad T43 in safe mode using a few fairly easy steps.

1.Close all programs and restart the IBM Thinkpad T43.

2.Press "F8" repeatedly after the IBM logo appears, but before the operating system logo appears. If the "F8" key doesn't work, restart the computer and try pressing the "F11" key repeatedly.

3.Press the "down arrow" key to select "Safe Mode."

4.Press the "Enter" key. The computer will boot up in safe mode.

Lenovo t400 cannot boot. have "z" light only


Hi vincent,

I see that you have a "z" light indicator on the system when powered ON but you see no video on the screen.

The "z" Indicator means that the system is turned ON and ready to use but is in standby mode.

To disable standby mode on your system simply press the FN button for about 5 seconds on the system make sure that the machine is turned ON, this will make you system go back to normal mode.

Note:
For additional info on the issue the system can be put to standby mode by holding down the FN+F4 for a second or two this will enable standby mode on your Thinpad T400 and to disable the standbymode press and hold down FN for 5 seconds.


I hope that this will be of help regarding you concern, have a nice day.

I power the device on and get the 'IBM ThinkPad' logo screen. Nothing happens after that


Since you are getting the IBM Thinkpad Logo it is confirmed that you have no hardware error. All you need to do is restore the operating system. most of the IBM laptop has an inbuilt recovery option. just press the access IBM/ Thinkvantage (blue button) immediately after pressing the power button and follow the screen..

hope this helps.

The laptop was unplugged and went into standby mode when the battery ran out. I have recharged the battery but the standby indicator is still on and nothing happens when I try to start it.


can you take out your battery and plug in the power? if it works, i suspected it's a battery faulty. if not please make sure to charge up your battery up to 100% then boot up your machine normally.

STUCK ON STANDBY MODE


Ok, I want this off my screen. If it is stuck in standby mode as you say, press and hold the power button until the computer goes "dead." Then turn it back on. If this doesn't work, unplug it and take the battery out for a while.
