The best way to fix this is to insert the Windows Vista DVD that originally came with the computer. After you have the disc in, restart the computer and you should be prompted to "Press Any Key To Boot From Disc" or something along those lines...

Once you do that you will be given the option to repair Windows Vista. It will automatically scan the computer and fix any issues.

If you have a specific error message or have any trouble doing this, please let me know and I will be more then happy to further assist you!

Windows xp x41 migration vto x61


Have you tried just swapping the HDD into the new computer? The hardware might be similar enough for that to work.

Personally I would collect my files onto a flash drive, and start with a fresh install of the operating system on the x61. It will run much faster with a fresh install.

My lenovo x61 is locked, it doesn't boot. when it on it shoes me a lock & ask the password, I don't know the password, please help me what am i want to do.


There is a list of common backdoor passwords for BIOS locks here. If these do not work you may need to seek help at your local computer repair facility, as cracking these passwords is either extremely difficult, or involves dissasembling the machine.

Hi...I just formatted my x61 tablet with windows XP pro...But I cannot get any of the tablet features and touchscreen to work...I have all the updates and lenovo toolbox say everything is installed...did i...


Maybe IBM have some drivers but as XP is obsolete, they may not.

Operating Systems as supplied from new.
Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium 32-bit
Microsoft Windows Vista Business 32-bit and 64-bit
Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate 32-bit
Microsoft Windows XP Tablet Edition 2005

Are you using XP Tablet Edition as that edition has the drivers for the features?

Windows xp wont boot get black screen with white flashing dash in upper left corner


Ensure that there are no periferals plugged in, USB, Lan etc and take any disk out of the CD ROB drawer then try to boot again.
If it still doesn't work, you may have a hardware conflict and will need to press the F2 or whichever key for the BIOS menu and check that it is set up with Hard drive as first boot device, then try again.
Hope this helps

All of the sudden my battery wont charge. It was working fine and now it just says (plugged in, not charging) any ideas?


You can try restarting your computer, this has been known to occasionally help if Windows Vista is the operating system, but there isn't really a solution for this problem as it typically means that the battery has been destroyed. Sorry.
I hope this helps and apologize if it does not,

Problem .......x61 tablet help !!!!!!!


Hello snapshots,
I have an x61, and you may want to check that all of the keys on your keyboard are not damaged, and that none of them are stuck in the pressed position. That is what the "stuck key" message typically means. If you check out the keyboard, and all the keys are fine, and if you are still receiving this message, try calling Lenovo support. There is an off chance that your keyboard (or other components) may be slightly defective.
Here is the link to the Lenovo site: http://lenovo.com/planetwide/select/selector.html
Hope this helps!

Screen rotate


Hello snapshots,
Here is what you do:
1) Click on a blank area of the desktop (not sure why, but sometimes this is necessary). 2) Press the toolbox button on your monitor. It is located in between the rotate screen button and the secondary "Esc" button. A tablet shortcut menu should appear in the middle of your screen. 3) Select "Settings" at the bottom left of the menu. This will open a "Customize Tablet Shortcut Menu Settings" Window. 4) In the "Auto Screen Rotation" portion of the window, make sure the "Enable ActiveRotate" box is checked.  5) If you choose, you may also want to click the "Calibrate" button. This will step you through customizing the ActiveRotate to your personal preference. 6) Click "Apply" and then "Ok".
Please note, that with the internal wi-fi connection enabled, you cannot use the X61 in tablet mode in certain orientations. Nothing bad will happen if you attempt to do this; but you will notice a message popup telling you this, as well as having the screen automatically switch orientations on you. This is normal and has something to do with the wi-fi antenna location.
Hope that helps!
Jeff
