It lenovo R61 it has a password whenever you power on the notebook it shows you a lock, i av tried so many ways but i aint lucky


try opening the bottom compartment doors. look for a the cmos battery. If you take the cmos battery out(looks like a watch battery), short out the battery terminals for 60 seconds, this will likely dump any cmos locks/passwords, and default them. Worth a try . Please disconnect all power cords and take the main battery out first. Cheers

Lenovo ThinkPad R61 Fan


Were you able to fix it? I took out the fan and cleaned it with a toothbrush (didn't disassemble it). If it worked, can you provide some insight into what you did?

Lenovo R61 Dead


The power supply in most computers has a fuse, either internal or external, that can blow without you noticing. Basically, you've been on battery operation this whole time, and the battery's finally gone dead.
It will be necessary to open the case and examine the power supply section. It may be possible to replace the fuse yourself, but any operation of this nature that involves opening the case will void any warranty you may have.

Lenovo R61 won't get to login


Hi,
I,d suggest To charge the battery Fully.
Then power up the laptop, with A/C Adaptor connected.
Also check your models user manual, regarding the sleep/hibernate mode. the laptop may have gone into one of these modes. Usually a ( zzz ) Icon Key or Similar.
Also when booting press the LCD/VGA Button.
If all else fails, try to see if your laptop, has a hard-reset button or switch. ** Sometimes this can be a small hole ** On the underside of laptop. *** Only use with laptop Powered Off ***
