Your PC may be doing a complete memory check, this does take time although your 1 minute boot time might make some of us jealous.
Check your BIOS settings to see if you have a 'Fast Boot' option. If it does, make sure you are using it. It then will make only a cursory check of memory and it is probably OK otherwise you would have other symptoms that would let you know.

My external monitor was not working. I tried to change the settings within the display, rebooted, and now both are blank. I have tried to reset the emos (?) to the factory default and nothing changed....


I am not sure if this works but worth trying: 1- Turn the laptop on and while holding Esc key for about 1 mins. 2- Wait few minutes for boot process. 3- (if still no display) Hold Fn key and hit f7.

Restore default settings for ibm thinkpad r50


Hi, During the boot at the THINKPAD SCREEN press the Thinkvantage key ( Blue button ) it will launch rescue and recovery and allow you to reboot factory. This only works if you did not corrupted/deleted the rescue and recovery hidden partition on the HDD. Otherwise you will need the rescue and recovery CD to proceed. IBM/Lenovo support should be able to provide you the CD. thanks and have a nice day J-

My ibm laptop r50e shuts off automatically while i was downloading data from other device. until now it can not be turned on. please help me fix this problem


First this is probably a power problem, so first make sure the system is shutdown completely and remove the battery and disconnect the ac adapter then wait a good 5 to 10 minutes. Next if you have anything connected to the system disconnect all of them, then go ahead and try to turn on the system.

Removing CMOS battery on ibm r50e is not solving the pass problem


Removing battery or resetting BIOS with jumper will not help. You should call IBM for support on this issue. All thinkpads have a three year warranty, with either return to base or on-site service. Since the R50e is a recent model, you should have no problem getting it serviced directly by IBM. Toll Free: 1-800-IBM-SERV (1-800-426-7378)
