Boot priority order


Could be any number of issues Phillip. Have you tried booting into safe mode? After pushing the power button repeatedly hit your F8 key to get into the Safe Mode feature. Choose the first option which should be the regular Safe Mode without any connections. Try that and let me know what happens.

Lenovo ThinkPad SL500 backlight not working how to check if screen is OK or backlight adjustment or driver problem


You can check it with numlock key .
When you power up the cvomputer press num lock key if num lock LED is on and off then your computer gives display fine.
But if it is constant then there is not problem in your screen.
When you power up the computer press F8 key if you can see safe mode and other menu then your screen is ok then enter in enable vga mode then change screen resolution to 1024*768 .But if same problem then enter in safe mod and uninstall graphic driver then install graphic driver again .
When you powe up the computer press F1 or F2 or "del" key if you are able to see bios then make sure SATA is disable and Your harddrive is recognized there.
Let me know if you need further assistance.
Thanks for using FixYa.

Safe mode


Hi there, Try tapping F8 on boot to access the boot menu select "start windows normal". if it will not let you boot in to safemode with cmd promt and run "chkdsk /f" to check for bad sectors and repair othere HD issues. Also try "Last known Configuration" as a last ditch effort before moving on to System restore. IF system restore options fail to work let me know and we can do a system restore and restore your system to an earlier time through the cmd prompt. Good luck and i hope this helps

Mine is an ongoing issue, for almost 6 weeks now. I cannot access my Pinterest account. I get no results when I sign on to Pinterest, or when I push the Pinterest button. The first sign of trouble was when I got a message that something had run out or stopped and at that point I was told to paste something to my browser. This was Greek to me and thus began my many desperate pleas for help. At 70 years old, I am unable to follow any instructions. The second thing I was told was to deactivate my account and then reinactivate it. I then read that to deactivate would lose all my boards and pins, so then I was and still am, afraid to do anything! I adore Pinterest. I am a shut in, physically challenged and Pinterest adds so much joy to my daily life. My last email was from a woman, at Corp., and she listed several suggestions...however, I did not understand them, plus, if I exited the email to do what she instructed, I had to hope I could still have the email to go back to, and I immediately did the unthinkable...I lost the email entirely. I am so fed up with myself at this point, I had a computer repair man come to the house to work on my iPad and my laptop, but he said he knew nothing about Pinterest and could not help me at all. I have contacted you for help so many times on this, it is embarrassing and I am sure I have made a nuisance of myself. The initial email, notifying me that something was wrong with my account, is when all the trouble began. I have enjoyed Pinterest for several years, and have no idea what the initial email was talking about. That is when I was told to deactivate and then deactivate my account, and also told to paste something to my browser. It sounds so simple, but I am at a total loss. Again, I am terrified of losing my boards and 57,000.00 pins. Can someone at Corp. try again to help me? Also, is there any chance that they could call me and instruct me over the phone? I am desperate to save my boards/pins.Could someone please try one more time to help me? Carol Thompson Hollyhockheaven 623 910 9386
