Question about Lenovo Computers & Internet
A blue-screen in a portable device is almost certainly a sign of it being dropped and that the hard drive may need to be replaced

does this also happen in safe mode boot. (press F8 just before windows boots). If not then go to your event viewer and check the messages at the specific time,hour messages. for example. computer booted at 23:30. in windows around 23:31:10 and then blue screen. Go to safe mode. and look in the logs what registered at 32:31:10(around this time).
If not possible to boot in safe mode. Try to remove one of the 2 memory dimm(if you have 2). so you boot with 1. maybe 1 of them doesn't work good anymore.

This solution is for s-k-i-t: you will have to get a copy of the win xp install disk to fix this problem (you can borrow one as long as you have a COA on your laptop) but first get into the BIOS by pressing F1 right after you turn it on - you'll see the prompt in lower left corner. Then go to startup>boot>hard drive>Enter. This will show you the type of hard drive. If it is a IBM or Hitachi less than 60 gig chances are it is failing and this is why the hives (where XP stores its memory states) are corrupt. You can download the "Ultimate boot disk" and make a CD that will let you run hard drive test tools. If the hard drive is bad I would try to get the eBay seller to make good - depends on how long you've had it.

Is there any error message that you can see?What does it say?Or,is it just a blue screen and you can't see nothing?
Blue screen can be caused by any hardware,software,poorly written device drivers recently installed and accidently shutting down of PC.
If you can't see anything then take out the battery and press the power button for about 60secs.Startup without the battery first using the adapter and then see.If you still see the same blue screen then try the other options:
I want you to press F8,at startup, to bring up the advanced boot option and select "last known good configuration". Go to the BIOS setting pressing the DEL key at startup and select Load setup defaults [you might find that option in EXIT ]. Try removing any extra hardware attached like scanner,printer,pen drives etc.Later attach them again one by one and switching off and on the PC just to make sure which hardware is gone kaput. If you are able to startup the computer,use the SYSTEM RESTORE function to go back to previous date when your pc was working fine.This is to make sure you don't end up getting a blue screen at startup,again. The last option would be installing Windows OS. You can try and change the RAM sticks,if you have two then remove one n then start,do the same with the other RAM.

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?

Open the display screen of your Thinkpad and turn on the computer. Wait for the logo screen to give way to the main desktop screen.
Click on the "Start" tab in the bottom corner of the desktop screen and drop-down menu will appear.
Select "All Programs" from the list of options in the drop-down menu and a list of more options will appear.
Select "Capture Video From Device" and your Thinkpad window will activate. A capture window will appear on your desktop screen. From here, you can select the "Start Capture" tab in the capture window to begin shooting.
