Lenovo Thinkpad T60 Notebook - Answered Questions & Fixed issues


I have only encountered this issue since using Audlogics software to remove duplicate files on my machine.

Nothing against Audlogics, I have used it before to remove duplicate images or mp3s without any problems.

This time I (maybe foolishly) scanned the entire machine and removed every duplicate file with every extension (whilst keeping an original)

Since then my machine crashes, especially when using Chrome, and gives this error upon restart. It will eventually restart.

It works fine in safe mode and does not crash at all.

I am about to go back in and try it in normal mode and run various software to see which one causes the crashes.

I'm confident that the hard drive is still fine though.

It really depends on what kind of cold you're talking about. External temperature cool enough to produce condensation in the system can really mess your system up. Even to the point of destroying it. It's always good to keep your system above freezing and even above the dewpoint of where ever you're located.
If you're talking about cold being just starting the computer from any temperature from an "off" power mode to "on" then you could have a video issue. You can check your Event Viewer when it finally powers up to get more info on what caused the problem.

If the charger does not help it to turn on, try turning on the PC without the battery, OVERALL, YOU JUST NEED A NEW BATTERY... good luck!
P.S. "Never let them charging un-attended and or over night.."

Sometimes a non genuine/un-activated copy of Windows can have the same problem. That's the only thing I can think of that would cause this. Sorry I couldn't be of more help.

When the pc boots up look in the lower leeft and right corners to see which key will allow you to got to boot device order and then after you find it out press it on boot several times until it shows them all then use arrows and enter to select your device. Keep in mind Ubuntu relies on ext2 filesystem instead of NTFS file system. Windows xp may not work so use a 7 or 8 disk. You will most likely have to format your HDD to NTFS.

Did you reboot the machine? Did you reboot the wireless device? Try this procedure: http://compnetworking.about.com/cs/windowsnetworkin1/ht/renewipaddrwxp.htm

Hi. Try to check the steps as give below.
  1. Check the ethernet port with other spare wire if you have to check if it is a wire problem or if it is itself your ethernet port.
  2. Try to connect your ethernet port directly to the router to make sure ethernet port is working and there is no connectivity issue with the switch.
  3. Try to check the System BIOS settings and see if it is not disabled from there.
  4. Lastly download any free Live OS of Linux and boot your computer using it. See if the ethernet card is working or not.
Steps from 1-3 is for checking physical connectivity of the ethernet port and the last step is for checking OS issue. If network card do not work with Live OS as well, you can directly come to conclusion that its ethernet card that is not working properly and you need to get is repaired.

Welcome to Fixya

The backlight must have turned Off. Look at the F keys ( F1, F2 etc) that has picture of the LCD. Press Fn + the key that has the LCD picture to turn on the backlight. If nothing happens, try to use external monitor. If you see the display using the external monitor then the problem is the LCD already.

Welcome to Fixya

The wireless switch is located either on the side of the laptop or infront. You will see an embossed image of a wireless network which means that the switch is at the ON position. You can alse enable and disable the adapter by pressing the F key (F1, F2 etc) that has a picture of a tower that has a wireless signal together with Fn key. On my laptop its Fn + F8.

The following CAN be done with the system running...:

Almost all drives have a small access hole on the front cover.

Take a small paperclip, straighten it and insert it into the hole carefully and straight, pressing in carefully and firmly.

The drive should release and pop open slightly. open the drive the rest of the way by hand and see if the disk is stuck (if any inside).

Try closing the drive and operating it again by button. If it fails to open, the drive will need to be replaced. Check with the system manufacturer for a replacement drive and instruction for replacement or take it to an authorized repair center.

Try going into the BIOS of the laptop, usually by hitting the ThinkVantage button on startup, and checking the date and time settings to match those of your cellphones. Usually this happens when the date on the BIOS doesn't match the actual date.

Lenovo Thinkpad... | Answered on May 15, 2011 | 132 views

You get this message if your Laptop (CMOS/configuration) Date is really outdated and wrong: check and change your Laptop Configuration setting for Date and Time. Also check your Windows Date/Time.
If the date/time you enter is not maintained properly, especially after you switch off the laptop, then you have a bad backup CMOS battery that needs to be replaced.

Hope it helps.
