ThinkVantage suggested some system updates. I ran them and now my laptop is almost useless. I called Lenovo at (800) 426-7378 but, because I am out of warranty, they won't help me even if I pay. Please, does anyone have advice?

Thank you. I just solved it: ThinkVantage System Updates made a mess and I could not roll back. Finally was able to do a System Restore in Safe Mode. Two questions remain...
1) When one doesn't have the time, is there a resource other than Lenovo? They would only say ship it to us and we will charge you an unnamed price.
2) The DVD drive has an I/O device error (original reason for running the System Update). I will search the forums for help on that.

z60t (type 2511) running XP SP3. The error window states: "D:\ is not accessible. The request could not be performed because of an I/O error." I have an XP desktop. I can burn discs from it but the Thinkpad does not read discs at the moment.
I know this isn't an obscure problem but I have not found a resolution yet.

I have an XP disc and can boot from it. The disc spun for a long time but finally went to the Windows XP Setup screen.
That means there are no physical problems? It's a software issue?
