Lenovo T500 Freezes At Startup When Updating To Newest
Jul 21, 2009
I have a big problem with my lenovo T500. I installed Windows 7 RC x64 to my lenovo T500 (2082-53G) and when I install the ATI catalyst beta driver x64 v9.6 from ATI's homepage, my computer freezes at startup (some activity on HD but I can't move my mouse and many processes faile to start at boot).
Problem occurs only when Windows 7 beta driver for system interface or ricoh multicard reader is installed because it worked ok until I installed those drivers. I'm not the only one facing this problem: Lenovo T500 Thinkpad - WDM Radeon 3650 Driver Update Causes Screen to Freeze.
My bluetooth was working ok at vista, now I reinstalled the system for Windows 7 (64 bit). When I try to add a new device, it does not find any. I installed the BT drivers from lenovo for windows 7. BT is always on. What can be wrong? any help please?
A couple weeks ago, my computer (Lenovo T500) stopped recognizing wireless networks. I went to update the wireless adapter driver, and saw that there was no wireless adapter shown in the device manager. I downloaded the driver straight from Lenovo, but there's still no adapter showing up.
I have a 42 inch Sharp LCD TV, and a Lenovo T500 laptop running windows 7 as my main OS. I use VGA to connect to my TV. Any attempt to display 1920 by 1080 on my TV results in my TV telling me to switch to 1600 by 1200 because the video mode is not supported. 1920 by 1080 works fine on windows XP, same machine, same TV.
Games would not run well at 1920 by 1080, so I've ignored it up till now (because I tried several times and cannot get it to work). I like 1920 by 1080 for writing code though. Any way to fix this?

Windows 7 version: release candidate (it's free) (32 bit, yay for unused RAM)
I have the same problem on my HP laptop, suddenly all system freezes and I cannot do anything except hold shut down button. I have monitored my CPU performance on startup and it goes crazy when my avast anti-virus is updating almost about 70% of cpu usage.
Technical details: Celeron Dual-Core CPU T3100 @ 1.90 GHz, 3gb ram, Mobile intel 4 Series Express Chipset Family
I haven't done anything with programs, have run ccleaner few times, also Disk Clean up and defragmenter. Scanned with the same avast scanner and Trend Micro House call, everything was fine. But never done any cleaning in 'fan' region.
Yesterday my computer "crashed" right after updating the windows media player pulgin via firefox. Since then I have got the infamous startup loop.
I have tried the following: - Startup repair - Safe mode - Last known good configuration - Startup repair disk - Sfc scannow(running for the 4th time right now) - Chkdisk - Rebuilt the boot directories - Unplugged everything but the drive windows is on
After rebuild the boot drives is the only time any prgoress was made, now it actually attempts to startup and hits the startup repair following the windows animated logo. I cannot locate my actual windows 7 disk otherwise at this point I would have just ran the repair from there or fresh installed.

I got a new Lenovo G570 which has been frequently freezing up, requiring a restart. Frequency varies from every 20 minutes to a few hours, in a wide variety of states and activities, sometimes even while installing updates at shutdown. Computer use seems to make it slightly worse. It can sit for 8 hours or more without problem if nothing is done right after boot, or if firefox is just up and sitting there. With Windows Media Player going, it lasts about 4 or 5 hours maybe. This is with me not interacting with it at all. When I do, it lasts much longer if I use the touchpad and leave the USB mouse unconnected.
I'm using Win 7 Home Premium 64 bit, OEM from Lenovo. I reinstalled it once using the system recovery utility from Lenovo, OneKey Recovery.
Performance is good right up until the point of the freeze, when everything immediately halts. Sounds will become a (near?) constant tone. The computer does not automatically restart or show any error screen.
ETA: I also ran it in safe mode for a day, simultaneously using WMP, Open Office, and USB mouse, and there were no problems.
I installed Windows 7 Professional 64-bit on my Lenovo ideapad Y430 (which came with Vista Home Premium 32-bit). It worked fine for a few hours. However, it now freezes up within 1 minute after I sign on after rebooting. The cursor stops moving, Task Manager won't come up, no disk activity, etc. Booting in Safe Mode works fine, so I'm thinking it's an issue related to a driver or service that doesn't load in Safe Mode. Event Viewer doesn't reveal much of use; only the fact that I needed to power off without shutdown. Vista still runs fine on another partition. How I can get Windows 7 running again (e.g., by identifying and removing/updating the offending driver/server, if that's what's causing the problem)?
what is the newest driver for my graphic card.I have GeForce GT 440 and i have problems with my PC.So maybe the problem is that i need a new driver.My problem i think is quite complicated.I don't have an option about the refresh rate(only 60 hz) and when i 'm trying to play NBA2k12 it says:OUT OF RANGE:106.4kHz/85Hz.
I am looking to integrate IE9 into a retail image of Windows 7. I've already done this once successfully, however the version of IE9 that I have is outdated. If you peruse the internet, you'll quickly see several direct links to IE 9's msu version directly from Microsoft, but these are all release candidate when installed. I'm looking for the latest RTM, since it won't have to be immediately upgraded after re-imaging, which completely defeats the purpose. While it isn't 100% supported by Microsoft, it isn't illegal to my knowledge. I still must have a valid license key to use any of it. If for some reason it goes against the TOS, please delete this post, but alert me as to why, precisely it had to be done so that I can avoid it later.
I updated firefox to the newest version (11.0) and it asked me to import bookmarks from Internet Explorer, but I only used internet explorer once (to install firefox when I first got my computer, the only thing IE is good for) and I dont have any bookmarks in IE anyway. So when firefox started all my previous bookmarks got deleted. I can not remember the majority of the websites addresses and I need some of them for research papers and school work. Is there any way to recover the bookmarks or am I screwed?
I have Sony Laptop VGN-AR 870 Windows 7 x64. Using NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT. I want to update to the newest version available for my graphics card, which is Version 280.26 but when I go through the setup it says "This graphics dirver could not find compatible graphics hardware". Well what the hell does that mean? I went to NVIDIA's website and downloaded this driver specifically for my 8600M gt card.
My catalyst control center was bugged so i decided to just do a complete uninstallation, which was successful. When i went to do the fresh install, the install manager would not give me the option of install the catalyst control center even though i uninstalled it. i have been looking through various fourms for solutions, but i only found one that seemed appropriate but it failed. it was the solution of looking in windowsassembly and uninstalling the ATI related products with the public key code of 90ba70f846762.
My Windows 7 Dell Inspiron 1440 laptop freezes after startup. This randomly started one day after I had normally gotten on the computer and decided to boot it back up. The computer starts up normally, and all the icons load up, but the connection bar has a circle on it. I can click on things, but nothing happens, it just highlights things. And when I hit control alt delete, the computer freezes and a few minutes later, it pulls up this thing that says the logon process was unable to display security and logon options when CTRL+ALT+DELETE was pressed.If the Operating System does not respond press ESC or restart the computer by the power switch In windows 7.
As I turn on my computer it starts working until it starts loading onto my desktop, I don't actually know what's going on because nothing has changed at all in the past few days. I've tried running it in safe mode, same thing happens.
I have a MSI CX623, and it was working fine a couple of days ago, now when I try to log on it freezes and that cup icon light goes off. I tried restoring the computer to three times, but it still freezes
So my computer is pretty new like 5 months old and starting around 3-4 weeks ago its freezes on startup.Here is one day of my life, i wake up, go to school, come home and i start up computer and after 3-4 minutes it freezes then i have to unplug or switch off the switch. I wait 10-20 minutes then switch it back on then i dosnt freeze...the next day i come back from school it happens again etc.
Shortly after starting up and logging in, one or more programs freezes (usually Firefox or Skype), but eventually even the taskbar will freeze up. When I tried to launch Task Manager, it doesn't run, and when I try to shut down it doesn't work either. The only thing I can do is a hard reset via the power button, and then enter safe mode. I scanned my computer with Avast!, Microsoft Security Essentials and MalwareBytes. All of them came up negative I then posted my problem to Reddit, and some users suggested me to run ComboFix (I did not know it was such a powerful program, and they seemed reasonably experienced). I ran it, and it actually fixed my problem for a while. But now I'm back where I started. What's wrong with
My sons laptop freezes part way through start up, shortly after windows logo has appeared, remains like this for few minutes befor shutting down. Have tried safeboot and starts until file windowssystem32DRIVERAtiPcie64.sys is reached when it freezes again. I've found some software called Farbar Recovery Scan Tool which has given me a large text file.
I'm having a problem where sometimes during the startup of Windows 7 it freezes after the 'Starting Windows' text but before the logo appears. I have to hard reset the computer and I am asked to run 'Startup Repair' or 'Start Windows Normally'.I have reinstalled Windows 7 and it still doesn't work and I have also run Startup Repair which found nothing.
I have CHKDSK running at startup and when the "press any key to skip in..." prompt appears the system freezes completely when the counter reaches 1. If I press any key the system freezes instantly. I did a chkdsk /r in repair console and it did not found any problems, but the startup chkdsk prompt won't go away.
Is it possible to disable the chkdsk autostart with repair console or startup repair? System is running 64-bit Windows 7 Ultimate and hard drive in question is 5x 500 GB RAID5 array.
My computer will freeze after start up within a minute of the boot up finishing. I have to restart the computer and it sometimes freezes on boot up or after boot up.After 2 - 4 times of this happening, my comp boots and runs fine.I've run in safe mode and it still freezes.Startup repair did nothing.I can't do error checking to my 160 GB WD HDD because last time I did that, when the countdown to error checking would start, the computer would freeze up at 1 second and the keyboard wouldn't work so I would not be able to stop it, so I had to reinstall Windows.I've tried switching cables.I've updated the BIOS for my MOBOInstalled all drivers to dateRan a virus scanNot really sure if this is a hard drive problem or a motherboard problem or something else. Not a windows problem because I've
Basically what is happening is after 1h (and event viewer says every 1h 1m the system had to restart when I was asleep) my mouse and keyboard stop working and then the computer freezes over about 1 minute. Basically the active program will freeze, like firefox, then the desktop will freeze, then the mouse/KB wont work.
I recently installed Morrowind Overhaul 2.0 and it would freeze and give me a "low memory" error in an error box when I was trying to set that up. I'd still be able to ctrl alt delete to close it. This is around the time where the problem started. I used the Windows Memory Diag and it came up fine.I also have downloaded a lot of stuff recently and installed a lot of new programs. But I have scanned with MSE and Spybot 2x each (and am about to restart in safe mode w/ networking like a guide here said to and try Malwarebytes).I have also been unplugging External HDD constantly without ejecting but even with the HDD unplugged my computer crashes. I used Crystal Disk Info and HD Tuner and CHKDSK on both and they seem to work fine. HD Tuner is still checking my External atm though. When I woke up today my computer said there was a disk error but I dont remember the exact message and to push enter, this was before POST.
-Used CCleaner, Auslogics Registry Cleaner, Comodo System Cleaner,
-Dusted my computer to bring temps down and am running at around 36-44C idle on GPU + CPU.
-Did Windows Update
-Updated GFX to 12.4
-All Malware programs are constantly updated and I scan every few days
Ram failure? HDD failing? Virus? Registry?
Its about time for a format anyway if I can't find the answer, but if its a virus or a hardware problem it will continue. Can virus infect a video file or music file or a game file? Like if I got a virus and had a clean video, could that video then be infected? Basically I want to know what I can keep if I do have a virus/worm/trojan.
I hope somone out there can help. I've been looking through the forums for a while and I haven't found a solution to my problem.First of all I'm running Windows 7 Pro 64 bit on an i5 system.I powered on my PC and it gave me a warning about the machine not being shut down properly. I started windows normally and once I reached the desktop Windows freezes, I can still move the cursor but I can't click on anything. Pressing Ctrl alt Del only causes a black screen to appear and I am forced to reset the machine.
My problem is that sometimes when I start up my computer (from both hibernation and shutdown), windows freezes(sort of) on startup. It will start up after quite some time and everything seem to be running in slow-motion. I can move the pointer and perform actions in 1-2 sec intervals with about 5-6 seconds between them.When starting up in safe-mode it will freeze totally upon loading the file CLASSPNP.SYS.At first I was concerned about some hardware malfunction, but since everything works fine on Ubuntu (dual-boot) I assume this is a software error.The only fix I've been able to apply is using system restore, but this may have to be done several times for the problem to disappear and takes forever since the computer is running in "slow-motion". Also sometimes when i leave the computer off for a day or two (or just use Ubuntu instead) it will boot up win7 just fine.Since the problem occurs quite randomly and without any warnings it's been quite hard to debug/gather information on the system while crashing, but here is what I have been able to figure out so far: * While problem occurs, both cpu cores are working at 95-99%. Processes(random ones) take turns on using 99%. * Screen will glitch heavily and message will appear in tray-bubble: "windows nvidia kernel mode driver stopped responding". Things i have tried: * Installing newest Nvidia graphics driver. * Installing older Nvidia graphics drivers. * Full format and fresh install of windows7. In the reliability monitor i was able to gather this information: * Problem: Windows failed to start because of missing system files Description: A recent driver installation or upgrade might have prevented Windows from starting.* Problem: Video hardware error Description A problem with your video hardware caused Windows to stop working correctly.

I installed Win 7 Ultimate 32-bit version about 2 months ago. In the beginning it worked just fine. But after a while it started to freeze during startup at win7 logo. I have to shut it down manually and after I turn it on again it works fine. Recently when I turned pc on it started checking my hdd and after that it would startup. I haven't had any BSOD at all. Today I noticed that my antivirus software AVG free won't start. So I tried to start it manually but it shows error "C:Program FilesAVGAVG10avgui.exe
The application has failed to start because its side-by-side configuration is incorrect.see the application event log or use the command-line sxstrace.exe tool for more detail."The reason I switched to Win 7 is that when I had xp I used to get a lot of BSOD because of the graphic card drivers. I wasn't able to install them correctly.
I have a vaio and it has had windows 7 64 from new, and just recently it has been freezing with no errors.What happens: when i turn it on it starts normally and loads windows, then aftr about 1 minute it locks up as if it is trying to open something. The light on the laptop is solid orange as if it is busy doing something, but if i open task manager it says 5% cpu usage and the ram is using only 1.5 gigs.If i leave the computer on for 1-2 hours it will un freeze and be totally normal again.It did it once at first and i removed the program that i thought was causing it and it didnt happen again for a few days until i updated windows.
I've recently just got a BSOD after several freezes and reboots(mostly on startup) and hoped that someone could figure out the problem. I've done what someone suggested and cleared out some software but it seems that the problem still persists. I just requested a new motherboard from the manufacturer
Over the night I turn off my Windows 7 computer. Some mornings, when I turn it on, the pc boots normally but the cursor is frozen on the desktop. The mouse itself is lighten up and seems ready to be used. That happens at random and force me to reboot once or twice to get it working. There is no virus. The mouse is a Logitech using a Windows 7 driver.
I am assuming this is the best forum of this post.About two weeks ago, I was on the internet and my laptop froze, I forced shut and restarted the laptop, and was greeted with a black screen saying "Realtek Family Controller, Media test failure, check cable" Although I don't use an ethernet cable to use the internet (I use wireless), I plugged one in and windows started up normally. Fastforward to two days ago, I was watching a video offline and my laptop froze, plus made a loud noise. I forced a shut down, and restarted. But now I only have to turn the laptop on, and it just freezes for no reason. Loading Google Chrome, or just looking in my folders. Only way to use laptop is in Safe Mode!
Therefore I am using Safe Mode with networking to post this and using IE 8 aswell as Chrome makes it freeze even in Safe Mode. My Specs:AMD Athlon II P360 Dual core Processor 2.29GHzWindows 7 home PremiumRAM: 4.00GBFile System; NTFSapacity: 298 GB (Used 91.5 GB) I have also downloaded Malwarebytes and ran it, and there was no spyware/malware on my computer. I have also ran the Windows memory diagnostic, but when it says it will display, the results once it restarted, I get no results so I assume there was no problem.
