Question about IBM ThinkPad T60 Notebook
I press the power button and the computer won't start up past the "To Interrupt Normal Startup" screen. I just tried installing a Skype Webcam, which is right when the problem happened. Though over the past several days, I've also been having problems with the startup. It will go all the way to the desktop, but I won;t be able to open any documents or windows. I click on the icons and nothing would happen. I would have to shutdown the computer by taking the battery out and then try to start it up again, sometimes I would have to do it several times.
If you succeed in starting the computer, then do a system restore to an earlier date.

Watch for the status message "To interrupt normal startup, press the blue ThinkVantage button" to appear on the screen. The only time you have the ability to access your BIOS is while this message is on your monitor. If this message disappears, you will have to restart your T60 and try again.
Press the "ThinkVantage" button on your T60. From the list of options that appears, select "Start setup utility." You will be prompted to enter your BIOS password. Type "merlin" and hit "Enter" to bypass the password prompt using your backdoor password and enter your main BIOS utility.
Select "Security." In this window, select "Set Password." Type the new password you want to use for your BIOS. Press "Enter" to finish resetting your T60 BIOS password.
