can you enter the rescue and recovery console, by pressing the bluethinkvantage button during startup?

well i think your GPU has gone, maybe it is time to call Lenovo service and see whether they could change the motherboard free. 

 

Mention everything that you have mentioned in your previous post.

i dont think it is a gpu problem i had a intel core duo 2.0 ghz cpu and a nvidi quatro video card i think its video card related or it could be the moniter , it was a good 3 or 4 years with this computer , i just want to save all my information on it i may just buy a new one and take out the hard drive , but if i can fix this i will just replace whatever got burnt out

heres what the screen looks like when i turn it on before the blue screen of death appears

why are you assuming that it is not a GPU problem?

 

What is the model/type number of your laptop?

Hello,

 

Lenovo offers for download a bootable CD image that you can download and burn to a CD in order to test a ThinkPad's hardware called the PC Doctor for DOS bootable CD.  Have you tried creating and using it to test your ThinkPad T61?  If so, what were the results?

 

Regards,

GPU = video card. A GPU is a video card. Hook up a monitor. If have same issue your card went kaput. Call Lenovo.

ikillau,

 

Welcome to the forum!  Sorry to hear that you are having trouble...:smileysad:

 

Seems like you are getting some pretty sound advice from other members...

 

Please try connection to an external display as BaldwinHills and others have suggested - if no display there, then it's the system board.   On startup, see if you can enter the BIOS.  How does the screen appear in the BIOS?

 

If corrupted there, then I would also think it's a problem with the systemboard.

 

I've also noted that you have  posted slightly different versions of your situation on 3 different threads and have received advice from some of the same members on these different discussions.  As you continue to discuss the situation here in the forum, please choose the thread that is most relevant to your symptoms and keep the discussion focused there.  Sharing all of your information / symptoms in one place will help other members provide the most informed advice possible.

 

Thanks!

 

Mark
