As it was left with no ventilation underneath for the cooling fan, it has desoldered the GPU.
Motherboard replacement or GPU re ball required.

Have you tried pressing the Fn + F8 keys? This combination is used to disable and enable the mouse pad.

Your hard drive maybe failing. I would make a back up as soon as possible . Then I would do a dskchk, Here's how:

Double-click My Computer, and then right-click the hard disk that you want to check.

  1. Click Properties, and then click Tools.
  2. Under Error-checking, click Check Now. A dialog box that shows the Check disk options is displayed,
  3. Use the following procedures:
    • To repair errors, locate bad sectors, and recover readable information, select the Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors check box, and then click Start.
    Note If one or more of the files on the hard disk are open, you will receive the following message: The disk check could not be performed because the disk check utility needs exclusive access to some Windows files on the disk. These files can be accessed by restarting Windows. Do you want to schedule the disk check to occur the next time you restart the computer? Click Yes to schedule the disk check, and then restart your computer to start the disk check. Please don't forget to rate this solution.

I have put in pattern and i forgot it how to open it


I'm going to assume your laptop is an IdeaPad, since you're referring to a touchscreen lock.

If you're running Windows (any version pretty much), you can try downloading the Ultimate Boot CD ( Ultimate Boot CD Download the UBCD ) and using the MS Windows password removal tool.

You'll have to burn the image file you download from the link above onto a CD or DVD, then boot from it on the IdeaPad(?) from which you are locked out.

Lenovo is just a different name for the same part of IBM that made the original ThinkPad notebooks, so if the UBCD doesn't work you might want to try looking for solutions in the Lenovo BIOS (accessed during POST by usually pressing F12 or Enter).

Again, assuming it's Windows you're using, you can always try the startup repair menu accessed by pressing F8 after POST.

How can i get the cd driver for my thinkpad t42? i got the problem with the multimedia audio controller, pci and modem


If you can't find a CD, you can log on to lenovo website, look for your model, and get the software driver that you are looking for. download it on a USB stick, or burn it in a CD using other computer, then install it on your laptop. that's it.

Need an optical driver for my dvd/cd-rw lenovo


well it's possible that your cd-rom actually is just permanently malfunctioning, i've seen it numerous times (i repair pc's and laptops for a living) the driver should automatically load using windows. the only driver i can find for the optical drive is for dos and people using win 3.1

Help cannot get into my thinkpad labtop lenovo t61


Turn the computer on and then wait for the startup ThinkPad screen. then press the blue ThinkVantage button on the upper left of the keyboard. This should bring you to the rescue and recovery applications on the computer and help you diagnose and hopefully recover your system.
