Lenovo R60 not responding to any function key and freeze forever

[ Edited ]

Hi, I think I broke my sister's laptop :smileysad:  Please help me out:

 

Problem:

Lenovo R60 Thinkvintage freeze and not responding to any function key at all (including alt+clt+del; Fn etc). I've restart many times but after few minutes the cursor won't move and started to freeze again. Also when it happened, the indicator next to the circle with Z, which is a cylinder icon (under the screen) will stop blinking . But the icon a circle with Z symbol is on. ++ my fan is not working as well.

 

When did it happen:

It started this morning after I accidentally switched off power outlet when the laptop was on and connected to the power (I've only used power supply because the attached battery is faulty). So does anyone has any idea what's the problem? And any suggested solutions are welcome,  Thank you so much !!

Re: Lenovo R60 not responding to any function key and freeze forever

Hi, thanks for your reply!!  I've just ran the Bios > HDD check >  Main hard disk drive, the result stated

Pass: Read verification and speed test. Is that mean nothing wrong with it?

 

Also can I have a question about the icon under the screen. I've googled almost whole morning still cannot find what is the Cylinder Icon means? The one next to the circle with a wave/z inside. The laptop will just freeze when that icon stop blinking (sometimes even before it enter the admin log on page).

Ok I've found the cylinder icon means hard drive usage.

But why does it stop blinking and does it cause the laptop stop working?

I kinda solved the problem temporarily by removed the battery entirely and using AC power only. However, my fan is still not working.

download TPFancontrol and see whether the temperature reading is normal and whether you can force the fan to spin.
