Ok try to boot in native DOS if the unit still froze. If it froze then check your memory card, reseat or clean it with soft eraser only its edge connector. Do this when battery is disconnected and no any other power source is connected to the unit.

Then if it run native DOS. If you can backup your important files, installation code. This will end restoring your unit to restore factory, do you have your restore disc?

Or you can try first to run in safe mode/repair options. Check if it can do some system restore.

HOW DO I FIX A FROZEN,UNMOVEABLE CURSOR ON A LENOVO T61 COMPUTER?


If your Lenovo is running Windows, you use your keyboard to shut it down. One way is to press ctrl + alt + delete; this will open the task manager. Use the keyboard to select your options or to shut it down from here.
Another way is by pressing alt + f4, but you must be in your desktop (main display). Also use the keyboard to select your options.

    Top 10 keyboard shortcuts everyone should know


    Using keyboard shortcuts can often cut the time it takes to do something on a computer in half. Below are our top 10 keyboard shortcuts we recommend everyone memorize and use.
    Ctrl + C or Ctrl + Insert
    Copy the highlighted text or selected item.
    Ctrl + V or Shift + Insert
    Paste the text or object that's in the clipboard.
    Ctrl + Z and Ctrl + Y
    Undo any change. For example, if you cut text, pressing this will undo it. This can also often be pressed multiple times to undo multiple changes. Pressing Ctrl + Y would re-do the undo.
    Ctrl + F
    Open the Find in any program. This includes your Internet browser to find text on the current page.
    Alt + Tab or Alt + Esc
    Quickly switch between open programs.
    F1
    Open help for the program you're in.
    Ctrl + P
    Print what's currently being viewed in programs such as Microsoft Word or your Internet browser.
    Ctrl + Left arrow / Right arrow
    Move the cursor one word at a time instead of one character at a time. If you wanted to highlight one word at a time you can hold down Ctrl + Alt and then press the left or right arrow key to move one word at a time in that direction while highlighting each word.
    Ctrl + Home / End
    Move the cursor to the beginning or end of a document.
    Page Up / Space bar and Page Down
    Pressing either the page up or page down key will move that page one page at a time in that direction. When browsing the Internet pressing the space bar will also move the page down one page at a time.
