Laptop Booting problems

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

I have a Lenovo T60 laptop thats less than a year old. I was having some booting issues before along with freezing-crashing when playing games on it, so I reformatted the system. I put in all the drivers and everything, but the laptop (before and after adding drivers) seemed to freeze on the windows logo screen. And not just freeze there, it seemed to freeze while the windows logo screen was faded out (like how it sort of fades into view upon boot, but stuck half way). Sometimes it wouldn't even get that far, and I'd get a black screen and nothing else. I turned off the laptop and turned it back on after a few seconds, and I'd get the screen talking about a failure for windows to boot, so I try normal boot up and last good config with no luck. I then tried safe mode, but the drivers froze up during the loading screen and nothing happened. I ran the built-in hard drive diagnostic for the laptop and it said there were no issues on the drive, and I can't image it being any other hardware issues. Since this is happening before I formatted the laptop and after, I don't know what could be causing the problem.

Now heres the funny thing: When I pull the laptop battery out for a few mins and press the power button to discharge the laptop, the computer works fine when I put the battery in and will boot. however, the next time I need to boot again...even a reboot, I face the same problem and have to pull the battery out and discharge again for a few mins.

Anyone know what might be going on?

This is what I've done so far:

Checked the hard drive
Updated drivers on setup before formatting
Ran dskchk through DOS
Erased the hard drive via acronis
Ran a virus scan
Formatted the laptop
Put in new drivers

Still nothing! And all that is on the laptop now is the drivers for all the hardware and thats it, not even windows updates yet.

I'd really appreciate the help guys and I'll try to answer any questions I can to make things easier.

Thanks a ton

Sounds like you loaded the wrong drivers. Thats the problem I had.

They're the same drivers that I had on the system when I first got the laptop. I backed them up before I reformatted and put them back on. I also tried to go on the lenovo site and get new drivers for them all and did that, but still have the same issue. Anything else it could be... or maybe I missed something?

I'm running Windows XP Pro w/ SP2. I'm a computer geek in general and usually can fix whatever problems I come across, but I've not seen something like this before. Everything I'm running says nothing is wrong, but when it's time to boot....
