x61 reboot to factory default FAILED now scrolling "there has been a signature failure"

2011-03-24, 13:29 PM

Ran out of full warranty in Jan. So I was hoping some one could help. I am not computer savvy but can get around. I have an X61 Tablet. I received a system failure blue screen and after that the computer would not load without showing the blue screen while in the final boot up stage. I ran a hardware test and it passed and then I used the blue button to try to do a full factory restore. Factory restore failed. Now when I turn on the computer it boots up to the scrolling message "there has been a signature failure" if I push ctrl and delete twice the bios options come up.... Please help if you can this has left this computer useless and the system do not come with any kind of recovery discs.

Please if there is any help out there I would appreciate it.......

 

Thank You!!!

Hello mate,

 

You have to burn the recovery discs. You can order them from lenovo.

What the system do when you psh the blue button after startup ?

Goes to the bios options thing.  Even if I get the disks will I be able to delete the partition that is corrupted and build a new one?

The discs will format and repartition your hdd and install the os as when you bought it.

So just insert the disk and set the boot sequence to CD rom and it will do all the work? Also any idea on how to get or burn the disks I am looking at lenovos site and its telling me I need to burn it from rescue and recovery but obviously I can't get to it. Any ideas?
