Question about Lenovo ThinkPad R61e Notebook
My lenovo thinkpad lap top is on but I still cannot access when I click on the on button. the screen stays dark!!
Hi msinon, connect another external screen to the IBM-machine to check if simply the screen is broken.
If that does not help, remove the RAM-memory module (see instructions or manual), retry booting up without it, if still not lucky, the mainboard is broken and you will have to exchange it or get another new machine.
Think of transferring the old harddisk to the new laptop or keeping it as an external back-up source(you will have to buy an USB to SATA adaptor plus harddisk case) sa you can use it like a flash drive...

Hi, During the boot at the THINKPAD SCREEN press the Thinkvantage key ( Blue button ) it will launch rescue and recovery and allow you to reboot factory. This only works if you did not corrupted/deleted the rescue and recovery hidden partition on the HDD. Otherwise you will need the rescue and recovery CD to proceed. IBM/Lenovo support should be able to provide you the CD. Might be a defective hdd aswell, in this case to make sure you can run a DFT test, www.google.com -> Look up for " Test DFT " ( Drive fitness tool from hitachi, will make an hardware diag if hdd failure - error code 0x00 = everything fine, other code = Issue - You can look up for accurate code explanation on hitachi website ) thanks and have a nice day J-

SOURCE: I can not access the
I am glad to HELP YOU!
I have to tell you that sometimes removing the CMOS battery doesn't solve the BIOS password resetting.
You have to take some other steps to succeed:
# power OFF
# remove the back cover of your machine [the DIMM cover only = Dual Inline Memory Module]
# put a jumper on the password jumper contacts to short the circuit [or short-circuit the password jumper pads]
# restart the machine and wait until the POST is done
# now the password should not appear again, so the security code was removed
# put back the the DIMM cover
