If I'm picking up what what your laying down? we will try this, now I can give you a complicated back end of the system directions some how I think it's just going to make things worse! So lets try the "point & shoot " fix first! In the lower description will be a link to "gizmos freeware reviews" it's the go to place for the good stuff! My first recommendation is "CCleaner" make sure your browser is closed when you run this , then "Toolwiz" they are both "point & shoot" 100% freeware & 100% safe! these will fix any registry errors, get rid of any old junk that's clogging your system! or "a laxative apps" is what I have crowned them! One last thing! if you log into "Facebook"? if you don't know what a good spyware application is & how it is one of the most crucial security applications "to run on your system" then I will include that link too!, one of the best spyware apps out there, will make all the deference in the word!! it is called "SUPERAntispyware" Facebook has been over run with parasitic infection called "CLICK JACKING!" so when I here the words "I can not log on to my account" it is the first sign that your system is infected!

There are two troubleshooting tips for this:
  • try changing the battery. Sometimes the battery can be bad, not keeping a charge long enough to allow the computer to power on.
  • Try a new power cord. First thing is, there can be a short that intermittently causes the computer to show as charging, but it stops actually charging after letting go of the plug. Second, the cord is going bad and not allowing a full charge to go through.

Is the computer at full charge (or at least 90%) prior to the attempt to charge it? I know that my Lenovo is set to not charge from 90% in order to keep the battery from overcharging.

You will have to contact the administrator of the computer to change it for you. You have been blocked from using it. The Admin is the only one who can unblock it for you. Whether it is someone in your home or at your workplace or your ISP Internet Service Provider

Reset could mean one of several things. I assume you know how to simply reboot it. If it is hung you can hold the power button down for about 6 seconds to turn it off.

If you forgot the password, contact Lenovo support at http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/
Provide them with proof of purchase and original receipt to prove ownership of laptop.

If you want to restore factory defaults then installed on the ThinkPad T500 is a program called Rescue and Recovery, which helps you diagnose and fix problems with the Windows operating system. To access this software, reboot your T500 and press the oval-shaped blue ThinkVantage button -- located on the upper-left area of your keyboard -- when the ThinkPad logo appears. When the Rescue and Recovery menu appears, choose the option that describes what you want to do. Follow the directions on the screen to run the appropriate action.

If you need the recovery disks then try

The sl500 includes 4 buttons on either side of the touchpad. The buttons on the right side of the touchpad are designated for a right-click by default. The menu key may also be used to simulate a right - click.

Near the power button there is a smaller button. Instead of power press this button and a menu will appear. You just have to choose BIOS Setup or Boot menu if you just want to change the boot order.

Bitlocker permanently encrypts the drive and the drive can only be decrypted with the code.
You could fit a new hdd and set it up with your OS from an ISO.

From what I could see from the Specs of Lenovo SL410, it only takes a 3.5 mm Microphone Plug. You could always use a 3.5 mm Stereo Audio Mic Jack and use Software like Audacity for Stereo Audio Recordings.

Your computer is functioning correctly.
The USB ports on your laptop are USB1 ports its pard of the hardware.
Your PCMCIA USB 2 card runs at USB 2 speed and therefore when you connect a USB 2 device to this port you will not get this USB message.
