SMBIOS Failed after Thinkvantage Updates

2008-04-08, 15:29 PM
New T61p...a couple of months old...XP Pro...had problems with bluetooth pairing and was guided to ThinkVantage System Update.

I ran through all of the initial updates, downloaded and installed...had to reboot a few times before the system was completely functional.

I then returned to ThinkVantage System Update and checked again for updates...there were about 6 more...downloaded and installed those.

I rebooted and the machine stalled again, so I rebooted, hard, several times with no luck.

I then used pc doctor to test, which came up with one error: SMBIOS - Failed.

I have no idea what to do now. The login screen accepts my fingerprint, but not my password. And when I get into my desktop it continues to freeze up.
