I can not restart my new T400.

2008-09-22, 16:03 PM

Hi, I just got a new T400 several days ago. Because the hard disk is 160GB, I tried to partition it by suite V10 software, restart it, but never works again. What should I do now? The software is XP, and the tinkadvantage did not work either.

Thanks. Jun

Did you make a copy of the recovery media before you did all this??? Does your Rescue and Recovery still work at start up by pressing the blue Thinkvantage button during bootup. You may need to reformat the whole laptop with the recovery media. If you didn't make one then call up Lenovo support and they will send you one for a nominal processing fee.

:mansurprised:

 

oh, man. I am sorry to hear that. It seems you need to  reinstall the XP system...

 

If they charge you more money than a hard disk cost, then just buy a new hard disk...

 

Some times, software are more expensive than hardware...

it is more likely a software problem, a new harddrive would still need the recovery media otherwise he would be without an OS. The recovery media should be around 50 USD.

Thanks for the message. I called the technique support, they told me to buy a recovery and rescue CD and it is around $45. Can I ship back to fix it? I will contact them.
