Lenovo r61 startup repair is not working

My Lenovo ThinkPad R61 cannot start up on its own, and Startup Repair doesn't seem to be working either. It continues to say "Attempting repairs" after several minutes. How long should this take? Is it possible it's not working at all?

    I can't remember the last time I used it. Maybe a few days before? It says there could be a software or a hardware problem.

    Most likely some type of software that was installed or a new update?

SOURCE: Lenovo R61 won't get to login

Hi,
I,d suggest To charge the battery Fully.
Then power up the laptop, with A/C Adaptor connected.
Also check your models user manual, regarding the sleep/hibernate mode. the laptop may have gone into one of these modes. Usually a ( zzz ) Icon Key or Similar.
Also when booting press the LCD/VGA Button.
If all else fails, try to see if your laptop, has a hard-reset button or switch. ** Sometimes this can be a small hole ** On the underside of laptop. *** Only use with laptop Powered Off ***

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?

SOURCE: lenovo thinkpad R61 audio driver not working

There are audio drives for this laptop, they will work for Windows, XP, Vista, & Windows 2000. They are on this site:

http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/MIGR-67856.html#audio

Just install and the laptop should recognize them. It if doesn't then that means the onboard video is bad.

SOURCE: i hv lenovo thinkpad r61.. i hv drivers bt,itss nt

The same model ThinkPadcan have different types of network, video and audio drivers and unless youknow exactly which one is installed in your ThinkPad, you need to download allthe drivers and install each driver until you find the right driver. When you download thedrivers, write down the device driver and it's file name so you have a recordof which driver you are installing and which directory the unzipped files arelocated on your hard drive. Go to the IBM/Lenovo WEBsite - support/download page and download the latest Windows XP or Vista devicedrivers for your model computer, Use this link: - http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/product.do?template=%2Fproductselection%2Flandingpages%2FbrowseByProductLandingPage.vm&sitestyle=lenovo&brandind=10&validate=true You can download thevarious drivers and then you click on and run the various driver files, theywill then unzip and expand into a sub folder on C:\drivers Then install thevarious drivers from this folder (run the set-up file).

How do i do startup repair.. I dont have the vista installation dvd.. the OS had come pre-installed..


When you start the system, tap on the F8 key a number of times. That should put you in the repair screen where you can choose a repair or restore of the system.

Slow processing and start up on thinkpad r61


sounds like you have too much data on your hard drive and possibly too much stuff starting up with your computer so use jkdefrag, msconfig, startup control panel and ccleaner to clear and clean up the data on your laptops hard drive.

Use ccleaner first which you can get here
and then defrag your hard drive afterwards using
jkdefrag which is here

msconfig you can access by going to start --> run and type msconfig and press enter or click on ok and then go to the startup tab and stop things running that you dont need to run although using startup control panel which is here would be a lot easier and better as you can check the run keys in the registry as well as the startup and run once keys and make sure only the things you need to run at startup are actually booting up.

Once you have done that see if it is any better and post back
