Lenovo T61 Thinkpad not booting up

Hi all   I have a lenovo thiinpad T61 on an XP operating system. I shut down my computer this morning and ever since then have not been able to bring it back up.  When I start it up, it gets to the windows xp page and just freezes. I tried to get it to open in safe mode but even during that, it freezes after Driver/Mup.sys
I tried to do this both using the battery and the ac adapter and have no luck.  Rescue and recovery also does not seem to be working.
Can you please help me fix this ?

Hi there, please restart your laptop when its booting press F8 key . You will find few option asking for selection. Select that by using up/down arrow key. Select " Last know good configuration" & press Enter. Next page asking for selecting operating system, for example: windows vista or Windows XP etc. Just select the operating system & press Enter again. ( Hope your laptop showing only one operating system ). Your laptop will start normally.

Thanks & waiting for your feedback

Hi ,

Did you install any new hardware and after that your system is not booting look at that and also try to check the condition of the memory if any latch or something is damaged.Try if you can log into safe mode as when the system boots press or Hold F8 . It can also be due to system getting corrupted.Also try the Last known good configuration option to see if your laptop functions. for this too press F8 and select and let me know.

Regards.

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.

Yes, it's highly-likely that all your "data" files on the disk-drive are intact. Any qualified computer-technician can remove the disk-drive, temporarily connect it as a "slave" drive in a computer, and copy all your files onto DVD-writable disk(s).

Hi. I think you have uninstall your display driver and download the updated drivers on the Lenovo driver support website.

Go to this website and download the video driver for your laptop: http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/product.do?doctypeind=9&template=/productselection/landingpages/downloadsDriversLandingPage.vm&sitestyle=lenovo
just make sure that you choose the correct or corresponding operating system that you have on your laptop (e.g XP, VISTA or Windows 7)

After downloading the video driver install it on your laptop then restart you computer. Goodluck!
