My SL410 was infected by virus (i guess) and turned into blue screen. The blue screen indicated the laptop was dumping the physical memory and then restarted. Hence, after rebooted I could only access to the very first screen with Thinkpad logo , Win 7 logo, then back to the blue screen. No way to get into Win 7 save mode and no response on the blue recovery button.
I used my Rescue & Recovery CD that i created a couple month before and was able to save all my data... but when i wanted to restore my laptop back to a previous state/year . it only completed step 1 of 2, but after rebooting went back to the blue screen... so step 2 was not able to begin... am i doing something wrong ? i do not understand why step 2 is not going through
Please go to BIOS and load the default settings then use the recovery disc.
If the issue persist then run the hard disk and memory test in BIOS and share the result.
