thinkpad in the screen does not continue

Hi,

 

I can't open my thinkpad t400.  When I put the button on what appears is the "thinkpad..." on the screen and it does not proceed to the blue screen where you find the monitor and icons.  Cna someone please tell me what to do, thank you.

Re: thinkpad in the screen does not continue

Do you have any broken USB ports?

Solution works.

 

I have checked that Firewire port was shorted. Now it's working.

Re: thinkpad in the screen does not continue

I'm having the same problem.  What to do?

 

Perhaps a related question: where is the lenovo support center in Korea?

Re: thinkpad in the screen does not continue

You can try uncrossing the pins on the USB port with tweezers or something.

You should be able to find the relevant support phone number on http://support.lenovo.com.

Re: thinkpad in the screen does not continue

I found it.  Unfortunately there is an automated answer that tells me to send them an email (for English support, I live in Korea but can't speak Korean) and I can't understand the full email address.
