well it's possible that your cd-rom actually is just permanently malfunctioning, i've seen it numerous times (i repair pc's and laptops for a living) the driver should automatically load using windows. the only driver i can find for the optical drive is for dos and people using win 3.1 If you need further help, reach me via phone at https://www.6ya.com/expert/joel_63c670a84e9f6a97

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.

Try to go into safe mode by pressing F8 as soon as you turn on the laptop.

If you get into safe mode then go into system restore and choose a date when the laptop was working properly. Let it rollback to that date and reboot the computer and let it go and see if it goes back into windows.

If you get a blue screen even when trying to go into windows then the operating system is corrupted and you'll need to do a factory restore on the laptop, meaning the hard drive would have to be wiped out and the operating system put back onto the hard drive.

Here is the ATI driver page on the Lenovo support site. They list the XP driver for your model. Download and reinstall to see if this solves your problem. If you get errors or if you are not running XP please post beneath this thread with additional info so I can follow up with you...

(power on self test and possible errors)then asks for BIOS PASSword (bad thing to have and forget) never turn this feature on.then if Bitlocker was turned on you must get this password next, if lost doom it is for HDD.'next the HDD boots the OS. (or fails with errors)what OS is this, windows (what) or Linux (hat) or freedos, or well lots more OS.let my guess its windows. so the next step iswindows password, is this where you get stuck.this messages (means recovery mode) in english.To interrupt normal startup, press theblue ThinkVantage button"it is the BIOS hot key for recovery.if the bios password is not set then BIOS works.My guess is your HDD is bad, and cant boot.you read the manual, (did you) and see the recovery chapter. and then attempt the recoveryand that works , good, but if not that means the HDD is bad, or damaged.'page 41 covers how to use factory recover diskIf you need help , next time tell the helperwhat OS came new with PC and was it upgraded.to say w10.

hello mr, Matt the hyjacker?why not ask using all your facts, and not OPsmy wild guess is the OP inserted to the docking stationand bent pins, and now will not work.the word unlock here is poor choice of wordsas many docking stations have option key mech. KEY lock.so if NOT a key lock !then it is just mechanically jammedwhy not get someone to fix itor try to unjam it your self , I am sure the OP did 8 long years ago.or sold it or scrapped it.invert the whole thing, LT and dock.upside down, now press dock firmly the LT bottomnear the Connector end and at same time...then unlatch the dock using the dock latch release now. this relieves pressure (gravity) and can aid in the cure.

remove the battery large. then run on AC pack only #1 top failure of all mobile PC is that battery, so unplug it then test with AC pack only. work now.? and all vents must be clean, end to end. not just fan. there i no fuse it uses current regulator, imagine genius magic electronics fuses that never blow out, and bingo. OK big battery out, an RTC coin cell fresh. then fan blows. next is BIOS, do the BIOS screens work if not the mobo is dead. have 2 RAM stick on the 2 slots>? try one at a time run the PC with all modules removed, (options) remove hdd? remove, dvd drive. think like this. Get bios working first learn that modules can short, and when they do the power regs shut down. so we unplug all things to the mob, until only 1 ram and cpu remains. see? (this is called power overload fault isolation tactics) even the screen only can be dead, you never mention text showing you can test the mobo with external screen via that rear (?)_ VGA jack what if that worked, did you learn something here, sure. this pc has tons of modules to pull, even bluetooth. wifi, sound and more. if you look at all parts inside or sold by ebay, bingo. lots
