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...

good luck

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-

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

YOU'RE DONE!

GOOD LUCK!

Why is my x201 lenovo thinkpad screen black. I am using an external monitor ok.


That means the connecting bus(cable) from the motherboard to the screen is damaged you can check it by opening slowly the screen of ur thinkpad if display comes at some place then the bus is damaged either replace that bus or the screen might be faulty you have to get replaced your thinkpad screen in this case

My Lenovo T61 is not troubleshooting. It was infected by an virus, How can I restart the computer? Please help


Hi,

ThinkPad computers have what we call the service partition, which can set the computer back to its factory stated even without the recovery disc. The service partition can be accessed by pressing the Access ThinkPad or Access IBM button during start up.

Prior to performing a software recovery, Lenovo recommends returning your system to it's original factory configuration by removing all hardware that has been added to your system.
When the system first starts, the following message will be displayed on a blank screen:


To start the Product Recovery program, press F11



This message will stay on the screen for approximately 2 seconds, and it will be there every time the machine is started from a powered off state. If the F11 key is pressed while the message is displayed, then the system will enter the Service partition.

Select Full Recovery to get rid of the viruses. Wait for it to complete and your computer will be back to when it was fresh as new.

Thank you for visiting FixYa! a 4 thumbs up if this helped will be greatly appreciated.

When i turn my computer on it starts to load normally then a black screen appears with a picture of a monitor and a lock where i then have to enter a password but i don't know what it is


you might have installed/ activated the login security software by mistake..

try to recall the password.. if it doesnt open then try to access the laptop through LINUX LIVE CD, backup all your data and then format and reinstall the OS. .

if the security software has encrypted the drive then you are screwed till you recall the right password.

The computer screen shrinked


Hi,

If you have Vista, try going to Control Panel and clicking Personalization, then Display Settings, and slide the Resolution bar up a bit.
If you have XP, you can right click on the Desktop, click Properties and change the Resolution in there.

Hope this helps!
