Question about IBM ThinkPad R40 2722 Notebook
This is what happened... Last night I turned the laptop on, it started up and even showed the desktop! All of a sudden, my screen turned blue with allot of writing... then it shut off. And now i don't see the desktop - Weird! Sometimes it reads error - 8611 Blue error screen comes up and reads... "A PROBLEM HAS BEEN DETECTED AND WINDOWS HAS BEEN SHUT DOWN TO PREVENT DAMAGE TO YOUR COMPUTER." Help! Single mom here trying to get this laptop ready for when my 9 year old goes back to school in September. I appreciate all the help!
There seems to be some corruption on the hard drive. You need to boot up the laptop from the Windows installation cd. Once "Setup" has started, you need to look for the option "Recovery Console". Once loaded you may get asked which installation you want to log onto. Type in 1 and press Enter. Then type the following: CHKDSK /P and press Enter. This will run a checkdisk and more than likely report that it has fixed some errors on the drive. Now type EXIT and press enter. The system should now reboot, remember to remove the Windows installation cd. If this fails, you may have to take the laptop to an authorised dealer.
