I created recovery disks soon after I received the T61 back in June 07. Windows says to put in the installation CD, reboot and choose the repair option. Since I don't have the install CD, just the created recovery CDs, what is the best procedure here? I put in the recovery CD and rebooted, but the Lenovo message says that the disk will be put back to the factory installed software. I did not proceed. Is there a repair option?
Thanks for any help.
If not, remove the battery and AC adapter, and press the power button for about 10 seconds and then repeat this about 10 time. Insert the battery, plug it in, wait 15 minutes and see if it starts.
If not, your hard drive may have died, but I would want to be certain first. ... JDH

If your Vipre AV is interfering with the Thinkvantage APS, you may be in for bad new. Let us hope not and that simply by uninstalling Vipre as a test that you may find the drive/machine is OK.
We have successfully recovered one system by using the Access IBM/Thinkvantage Blue Key and doing a system restore. If a recent restore point exists, it's very successful. Boot up, then un-install Vipre until the problem is resolved. Unfortunately, we have many models of Thinkpads so the process is not uniform.
According to the system event log, the problem began after the Vipre full scan. I have it set to wakeup my laptop at 6:30am and do a full scan. The Vipre scan history shows that the scan finished and took 55 minutes, but no risks were cleaned.
Not sure what the heck went wrong...
