Your mouse freezes; you should only use system restore as a last resort
any virus/spyware you had in the past will come back
turn the computer off(you may have to shut power off pressing on power button)
when you see ibm logo, tap F8 key repeatedly until your hear beeps or a high pitched noise
use option safe mode; use 'most recent config where my settings worked' option in safe mode(use up and down arrow keys to highlght, then press enter)
If that does not work, try another(earlier) restore pt w system restore or install mouse drivers on a cd on another laptop, then
place in cd rom and try to install it on the problem laptop
if this is no good, you should really reinstall windows, back up impt docs, etc.(delete old partition)
that model has a built in restore function by pressing F11 on startup, it will restore your piece to factory condition(along w spyware that comes along w the builtin ibm utility)
I had the same exact laptop, the fan got noisy, so I replaced it w another that was from a good t30, guess what:
"fan error"
Ibm laptops are too problematic to work on
thats why I use dell
if you need more help, msg me or post on here

What are the risks of Restoring R32 Thinkpad using F11 key? Drivers of CDROM & Modem are being prevented from being loaded by certain programs added later on as a result of which these have stopped...


Dear sir,

If you want to restore the thinkpad you must backup your files from windows drive(usually it is C: Drive) By pressing F11 you can restore the system. i.e windows goes back to default settings or manufacturer settings.(Settings when you purchased laptop) other software you installed after buying is also erased.so before doing restore backup your personal files. i think it solws your confusion.

good luck

Upon startup F8 for safe mode: Last Know Configuraton

Hit F8 for safe mode. Go into accessories>system tools>system restore
Doesn't work then: need Windows CD setup. Let it run and hit R for Recovery Console. At the DOS prompt type FIXMBR or FIXBOOT.

Can't get to the main screen


It sounds as if your Operating system may be corrupt. Reboot the machine and before the Windows Screen comes up hit the F8 key you will see a Windows with several options. Select Load the last known good configuration. If this does not work for you, you may end up reloading from the system restore disks

Thanks,
Chris

If you can boot to safe mode, try doing a restore.

When you turn on the system, just past the POST (before windows loads), hit the F8 key to get the menu between normal boot and safe mode.

When prompted, select SAFE MODE. Don't select safe mode with command prompt, or with networking. Just SAFE MODE.

Use the arrow keys to select SAFE MODE. If you need to log in, do so and proceed to launch windows.

Windows should launch in Safe mode. If it does, proceed to click on START, ALL PROGRAMS, ACCESSORIES, SYSTEM TOOLS, SYSTEM RESTORE.

Select RESTORE MY COMPUTER TO AN EARLIER TIME. Click on NEXT. If you can, select a BOLD date preferably before your issue. Click NEXT. System will load some files, reboot and reload.

If you can't get to safe mode, there may be other problems holding your system up. Did you load anything prior to the messages?

How do i goto system restore


A blue screen indicates an operating system error or glitch. Without being able to upload to Windows, you won't be able to do a restore. You will need to do an operating system repair with the recovery or operating system disc. If the repair doesn't take, then try a system reload. If you have any problems at this point during of after the reload, then the hard drive may have failed.
