It seems that u have installed a faulty driver that was not for your notebook

what u can do is when u enter the post in your notebook than keep pressinf the f8 key and hope u come in the safemode when u there than make a system restore like a day or 2 back and than it will be fine , if that is not possible than try to press the f11 key for complete system restore if u have maked a system backup on dvd

if thats not possible than the only thing u can do is bring it back for a rma at ibm

    a rma is that u contact the reseller where u buy the notebook from the give u a rma number that u need to keep and u have to send the notebook to them for repair, if it is still in warranty than it will cost nothing if the warranty is over than it can be very expensive for repair like between 150 a 300 euro or even more.

Unable to move cursor on lenovo x61


Are you trying to move the cursor with the trackpoint, a usb mouse, or the pen? Have you tried restarting your computer? Restarting would likely solve the problem. If you can't move the cursor to the start menu, you can open the start menu with the windows key, use the arrow keys to navigate to the power options. Use enter to select the power options and shut down or restart the computer. If this does not work, press and hold the power button for 5 or 10 seconds to force the computer to shut down.

What happened before this occurred? Did you install any programs or updates recently, or change any settings on your computer?

No power on will shutdown


Hello

First of all press ALT+CTRL+DEL and start Task Manager, there is probably some application (or other process) that is not reponding. You can kill them to let the shutdown continue, and know what is causing the problem and maybe find an update for it.

Also this means that your computer has not been rebooted properly since the installation of important system updates. If you have "Automatic Updates" scheduled on your machine, these updates could have downloaded and installed without your knowledge. To fix this issue, let the updates finish installing, reboot and then shut down your computer as normal.

Click "Start."

Click "Windows Update." Click "Install Updates" to begin the installation of any updates that have been downloaded to your Compaq Presario. When the "Restart Now" button becomes available, click it once. Your Compaq Presario will shut down Windows, finish installing the updates and then reboot your computer.

Click "Shut Down." Because the updates have finished installing and have been installed properly, your Compaq Presario will now shut down normally and will not immediately boot back up.

Ibm t60 will not boot after ibm updates


The problem is sort of solved. I phoned the IBM Support centre; they said that the mother board was either broken or faulty. Fortunately the laptop is still under waranty and so an engineer will come and fix it. I must say the IBM suport centre was very efficient and quick.

There was no mention from them though that it was the bios update that may have caused the problem.

I'll update when the laptop is working.

Thanks.
