My laptop crashed yesterday with some kind of virus. Screen went crazy and icons disappered. I turned it off and now I can't even get it to boot! It is a Lenovo Thinkpad, and it has a rescue and recovory feature. When I try to do that, it doesn't do anything at all, I even let it sit overnight to see if it would load and it still won't! This thing is pretty old, so I don't want to spend a fortune on it, but I would be nice to get it working again to at least get my files off of it!

Anybody have any ideas??

Thanks!

Have you tried using the F8 key to boot up in safe mode? If that doesn't work, it sounds like your hard drive went South.

Thats kinda what I was afraid of!! Last time I got a virus on it, I was able to fix it with a system restore, but this time it wont even open anything...

Thanks!

When I try to open it in safe mode, a bunch of messages come up, but nothing else happens. I got my fair use out of this old thing, Probably gonna get a new one for home, and get this one fixed to use at the shop. Gonna take it somewhere later to get it looked at..

Thanks for all the help!!
