I have a lenovo T60 and I believe that when the system did some back-ups that it backed the whole system multiple times as I only have about 6% free space left - - how do I go about correcting that so that I free up space on the hard-drive

First of all, you need the present password. Then straight after turning the computer on you press F12 or insert multiple times after each other. That way you will stop the normal boot and enter the BIOS settings. There you most likely will be prompted for the password and then under security you can disable or change it.
A burning smell is a good indication that some component burnt up. Could be a fan and that would cause it to shut down. If it's hung on the logo I would start by removing the memory, hard drive and optical drive and see if it boots past the logo. If it does then power down and add one item back in and test again until you find the bad part. Can you hear the fan spinning when you power it on?
Take out your battery and the power button for about 60secs.
Start the laptop using the Adapter [without the battery]
Lighten up your laptop...remove any external device attached [printer,scanner,pen drives etc.].
It could also be a RAM problem,try changing the RAM if you have two start with one and exchange them.Clean the edges of the RAM where it get fits into the slots and blow some air in the slots to clean it up of any dirt.
After that when the system starts you can do the system restore START--ALL PROGRAMS--ACCESSORIES--SYSTEM TOOLS--SYSTEM RESTORE to restore it back to an earlier date when laptop was ok.THEN LATER ON PUT THE BATTERY BACK IN.
Try restarting after an hour gap.
If this doesn't solve your problem call the company people.Their might be a Video Card problem or any other internal hardware problem.
could be the ac adapter, battery dead, first check them. if you find nothing there then it could be internal problems. if you know someone who has a charged battery try using it in yours. also try removing the battery and only using the ac adapter only.
Ok the RAM location is actually underneath the touch pad on the top of your keyboard. However, to get to the memory area where you can add/remove RAM cards you need to do the following:
STEP 1) On the botton the latop you should see 4 screws that have a "memory chip" ICON. These are the 4 screws you want to take out. (important note: my T60 has 4 screws with this icon, yours might have 5). Please the screws somewhere secure so they are not lost.
STEP 2) After you take out the screws noted in step 1. Flip your laptop and open it up as if you were going to type something.
On each side just below the keys pull up gently and the botton portion that has the touch pad will come up. You want to pull it back towards you. You won't be able to complete remove it away from the laptop, because there's a ribbon cable connecting the touch pad. So just move the piece back toward you out of the way (in essence peeling it back toward you).
STEP 3) You should now see the RAM card(s) they will have a bracket mechanism on each side of the RAM card, push them outward to unlock the RAM card (if your removing.
STEP 4) If your ADDING RAM. Evaluate if you need to remove existing cards or not. To install RAM you insert the new card in the slot, then push it down and it should snap int place.
STEP 5) Place the touch pad plate back into position and push it to snap down.
STEP 5) Close laptop cover, flip over and insert the screws back into their positions.
