SOURCE: i am trying to restore

Hi...
You will need to do the following:
1...Repairing the Operating System...
A...You will have to have the Operating Dics that came with the computer
It will have your product key number that came with the computer, you can also find it on the tower, or under the bottom of your laptop, or maybe the piece of paper that the CD orginally came in may have the number on it.
You can also download a small program and it will tell you your product key number.
Go to the following webpage to download your FREE key finder.
http://www.magicaljellybean.com/keyfinder/
B...You will now insert the disc into the CD/DVD player
C...Restart the computer
D...When the window opens that tells you to press "Any" key, you will press any key you want to press.
E...If you do not receive a message that says "press any key to boot from CD", then then the computer is not ready to boot from a cd.
To correct this problem you will have to go into your computer's Bios and change the computer to boot from a CD.
To get into the Bios, shut the computer off,restart, while the computer is starting up keep tapping F1 as the computer is starting up.
When you are in the Bios, select to boot by CD by moving the cursor with the direction arrows on the keyboard.
Once you have selected to boot by cd the exit and restart the computer...the disc is already in the cd/dvd player.
Your system will boot then from the cd.
F...After a minute or less it should ask you if you want to Quit Repair, or Continue.
You will select repair this time, but you may have to come back here and select Install if the repair does not work.
It will ok the agreement document if it asks you too.
Tap F8 on your keyboard to pass it when ready.
It will ask you if you want to Install, Repair, Delete Partition, or Quit.
Select Repair
Inside the box there will be one or two partitions.
Choose the largest partition.
After you have chosen the largest partition, you will then press the "r" key to start the repair
After the repair is complete then you will need to restart your computer.
G...Computer Restart
After the repair is complete, shut the computer down (the computer will shut down a few times during the installation of the operating system
that is normal).
Then restart your computer, when the computer restarts it will have a box to put your product key...put the product key in the box.
Answer any questions.
The computer should start up as if it was a new computer.
You do not need to re-register
You can now remove the disc.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
If this fails to clear your problem then you have a hardware problem.
It could be faulty ram
1.Reinstall the entire Operating System and you may have to update some drivers.
This will require you to go back to the start of the repair info.
2..Take your machine in to have the hardware tested.
Keep in mind that if you do a complete reinstall of the Operating System you will lose all the information on the computer,such as pictures, programs, videos, everything you installed will be gone.
Please take time to rate me four thumbs up

  8. AddReg=regsec

  11. HKLM, Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon,Shell,0x00000020,"Explorer.exe"
  12. Save this as fix.inf to your Desktop (remember to select Save as file type: All files in Notepad). Close Notepad.
  13. In the command prompt type Explorer.exe and Press Enter. Windows Explorer opens. Locate the fix.inf, click right button and select Install. Close Windows Explorer.
  14. In the command prompt type shutdown -r and press Enter. Your computer will be rebooted.

SOURCE: My Lenovo Thinkpad T60 Won't load pass thinkpad Logo. I can't access Bios and ThinkVantage button is useless PLEASE HELP!

A burning smell is a good indication that some component burnt up. Could be a fan and that would cause it to shut down. If it's hung on the logo I would start by removing the memory, hard drive and optical drive and see if it boots past the logo. If it does then power down and add one item back in and test again until you find the bad part. Can you hear the fan spinning when you power it on?

How do i reset a Lenovo Thinkpad T500


Reset could mean one of several things. I assume you know how to simply reboot it. If it is hung you can hold the power button down for about 6 seconds to turn it off.

If you forgot the password, contact Lenovo support at http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/
Provide them with proof of purchase and original receipt to prove ownership of laptop.

If you want to restore factory defaults then installed on the ThinkPad T500 is a program called Rescue and Recovery, which helps you diagnose and fix problems with the Windows operating system. To access this software, reboot your T500 and press the oval-shaped blue ThinkVantage button -- located on the upper-left area of your keyboard -- when the ThinkPad logo appears. When the Rescue and Recovery menu appears, choose the option that describes what you want to do. Follow the directions on the screen to run the appropriate action.

If you need the recovery disks then try

Depends what the error code is. If you were restoring the disc at the time, download an ISO from Windows and use that. I take it you have a valid COA.

My thinkpad r61e's hard drive was erased how do i get back in it


Was it formatted ,Deleted or just Crashed ???...
The Thinkpad line of laptops, owned and produced by Lenovo, is a series of portable computers. The Thinkpad line was first introduced by IBM in 1992, but has been manufactured under the Lenovo brand since 2005.
At the time it was introduced, the Thinkpad was one of the few affordable, yet high-quality laptops on the market.
Laptops were, at that stage, vastly more expensive than desktops.
The Thinkpad line runs the Windows operating system.
Windows, while generally efficient, has the capability to suffer hard drive crashes.
Fortunately, Thinkpad laptops carry Lenovo's Rescue and Recovery program.
This program can help in crash situations.
Shut down your computer.
Start up your computer.
Watch for the Windows prompt that asks you to press your computer's ThinkVantage button.
Press the ThinkVantage button when prompted, then release it.
Rescue and Recovery will open.
Follow the wizard's instructions
Check the recovery link listed in Link Below (using another computer) for more info if you encounter any difficulties during the process.

I power the device on and get the 'IBM ThinkPad' logo screen. Nothing happens after that


Since you are getting the IBM Thinkpad Logo it is confirmed that you have no hardware error. All you need to do is restore the operating system. most of the IBM laptop has an inbuilt recovery option. just press the access IBM/ Thinkvantage (blue button) immediately after pressing the power button and follow the screen..

hope this helps.
