In my limited experience all IBM compatible computers and that is nearly all of them, work in just about the same way. Faced with your problem I would begin by getting into the bios and changing the boot order.
Access the bios during the start of the startup as directed in one of the first few screens - it all happens so fast the computer might have to be restarted several times by pressing the Alt, Ctrl and Del buttons together. Access the bios by pressing the Del, F8 or whatever at the critical time.

Once into the bios go to the page dealing with the boot order and rearrange them so the dvd/cd drive is first in the order and then save the change and exit; then put the Windows system disc in the drive and close the drawer and very quickly restart the computer.

If all is good an onscreen message should appear, Boot from disc? or similar...

you will need to open the laptop to fix this..

inside in laptop is a small c-mos battery, this needs needs to disconnected for about 10 minutes with the main battery disconnected and not plugged in.

replace the battery and the back of the laptop, and boot it up.

after unplugging the battery and mains press power button to release any power left in the system then take the battery out or replace, but this has worked for me 100%

Try changing the resolution while display 2 is plugged in and active. You can also try changing Display 1 resolution (even if its your main screen)

Find out what is causing the alarm (battery) and turn it off in the menu of that category. You can also try look in the BIOS (press F1 during boot)

If you bought the Lenovo at a local dealer, take it back to them. If you bought it through an online dealer, I recommend you track down Lenovo customer support.

By the looks of the information you gave me...it seems that FIFA '11 might not be able to or may have a real hard time playing on your machine, but it doesn't hurt to try! If it doesn't work, then just simply uninstall it.
Hope this helps ^_^

Hard Reset

1-Unplug the device and power off by holding the power button down
Wait 5 seconds, then

2- hold down both the volume up and power buttons (volume up is the side of the long button that is closest to the power button), until you see a screen with “Select Boot Mode” text on it. When you see that, release both buttons.

3-Press the volume up button to move the arrow until it is pointing at the “Recovery Mode” option, then press the volume down button to select it.

4-The “android” logo should appear for a few seconds, then you should be in the “Android system recovery” menu.

5-Use the volume up / down buttons to highlight the “wipe data/factory reset” option, then press the power button to select it.


6-Use the volume up / down buttons to highlight the “Yes — delete all user data” option, then press the power button to select it.

7-Once that has completed, you should be returned to the “Android system recovery” menu. Make sure the top option, “reboot system now”, is selected, then press the power button to select it.

8-The device should reboot and display the “android” logo, followed by the swirling coloured dots. You can then plug the device back in and wait for it to boot up. This will take a long time (up to around 5 minutes).


9-Once the device has booted back into the app, you should be able to set up the wifi, log in with your credentials and re-download your property data.

I have gotten over this problem in the past....
I was locked out a while but they will eventually reset it for you if you keep at it.....

Or perhaps you can remember the silly password you thought you would be able to remember...

A good option might be to start a new one but then again I know I avoided this answer....
Be wary on your way a lot of scammers out there will claim they can help you for $10 or $45 but Google won't charge you to reset your password for you.

You need to get a hold of a windows xp recover boot cd/usb. You can download it on the internet (if you can with something else than the lapop)

Lenovo ThinkPad... | Answered on Aug 18, 2019


Make sure the external screen is on when starting laptop. Make sure the laptop is charging (use the recharger).
Also try close the laptops screen down (so screen turns off) and click or move mouse. Then open again and see if the other screen is active.

Windows does not include software to play movie DVDs.
You need to purchase software to perform this task.
I use Corel's WinDVD.

Good luck!
