Question about IBM Lenovo ThinkCentre M55e PC Desktop

My Lenovo SL500 laptop won't start up! When I turn it on, it runs perfectly until right after the Microsoft loading screen, when a blue screen with an error message pops up for 1/2 a second and then the whole computer restarts! Please help!

Hit the f8 key several times while it is rebooting and go the screen that allows you boot to windows, boot to last know good confifguration, boot to safe mode, etc... screen. On this menu you will find a selection that will allow you to stop the blue screen on the error. The error will tell you what the problem is. However from previous experience I can tell you that more than likely you will have to reinstall Windows. If you haven't backed up your data and need to recover it, It might be a good idea to setup the disk as an external drive or secondary (slave) drive on another computer, copy your data to a flashdisk or other backup device, reinstall your hdd as master/primary drive, boot to cd and reinstall windows. Have fun, let me know how it goes.

T61 won't go past the Microsoft loading screen


Press F8 during boot, and load Safe Mode. A program may be preventing a proper startup.

Try disabling startup programs. Go to Start > Run (search in Win 7) and type MSConfig > Startup tab and uncheck anything that you don't want Windows to load automatically. It will make Windows boot faster and use less resources while running.


This just disables them in startup. Programs will still load, but when you initiate.

Dark monitor


Hello,
If your LCD screen on your laptop is really dark and pressing the brightness function keys does not make it any better then you probably have a failing backlight. This pretty much means, time to either replace the screen altogether or buy a new laptop.
You can get screens off ebay for about $130

After turnoing on my sl500 the screen flickers and turns black


Check your video adapter settings. try to set it on clone and see if the picture would appear the same on your LCD. From there you select it back to your LCD. Just make sure the primary display is set to your LCD and apply the changes.

Hope this helps.

I have a lenovo laptop and Microsoft office. How do I do a screen shot on this thing? The office won't let me ''paste' it for some reason.


Sometimes when the right click options do not work, you can revert to the old DOS command short cuts. I am unsure of the Fn + "F" key stroke to take a screen shot but the keyboard short cuts for copy, cut and paste are: copy is Ctrl + C, Cut is Ctrl + X, Paste is Ctrl + V
