Thinkpad E330 recovery issue

Q: Thinkpad E330 recovery issue

Hi All,

I have a Thinkpad E330 on Windows 8 that I need to access the advanced start up options with as it has a corrupt boot sector.

So, I use a USB Pen with Windows 8 iso on it (I installed this to the USB pen using the Microsoft ISO to USB tool), when I get to the advanced startup, I choose my language only to be faced with the following message:

"You must log in to access System Recovery Options". I can only press OK to reboot the system.

I didn't make any recovery discs, so am pretty stumped at this stage hoping for advice on here.

Where can I log in to access the System Recovery Options?

Is there any other way round it?

Many thanks.

Craig

Preferred Solution: Thinkpad E330 recovery issue

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Have you tried tapping F11 or F8 to get into Windows 8 recovery? Reboot the machine as soon as you see your PC OEM name start tapping F11. This will not require using your USB thumb drive.

Hi,I have one ThinkPad E330 (latest BIOS), Windows 8.1  that behaves very strange: 1. If I perform a console shutdown, at next reboot starts booting sequence from HDD (this is BIOS Boot order)2. If I perform a remote shutdown (using "shutdown.exe -s -t 1" command from an RDP session) then at next boot the boot process starts Intel PXE boot and crash because there is a boot server in the network for some special ARM devices that delivers an non compatible image to the ThinkPad architecture... What is wrong with the E330 - it simply does not respect the BIOS settings after remote shutdown.How can I make it respect the BIOS settings even when I perform a remote shutdown? BIOS version: H3ET76WW(1.13) 2016-04-15Model: Edge E330 (ThinkPad) - Type 3354Windows: 8.1 Pro N, [Version 6.3.9600]LAN: Realtek PCIe GBE

Greetings Lenovo Community,It seems that I have accidentally deleted my recovery partition while trying to dualboot with Windows XP and Linux Mint 13.  Do I have to purchase recovery media to reverse this?  This is an IBM/Lenovo Thinkpad Z61m, titanium cover, bluetooth, no camera, and Core Duo. -E

Are  you sure the partition's really deleted? I dual-booted Linux 13 and 17 on XP and Win 7 without a hitch unless one tried to customize the parition themselves proir installation. The only time I heard user laments on this issue is if something badly mauled GRUB. Good luck!

Hey guys, So I got two problema actually with my laptop. The first one is that after my bios update of may 10 2016 my laptop wont reboot anymore. No bios screen or anything, only the logo lights up and the fans stop working after few seconds. The reason for my update was because i bought a new Wifi card the wimax 6250 which is actually whitelisted, didnt work at the begin so I thought updating the bios would help. But now I screwed my laptop which im using for my study. Can someone pls help me with suggestions? Also removing the mobo battery didnt help, after its says that it has been reseted it boots again without anything happeninng.

A:IBM THINKPAD R31 Windows XP ReCovery

WolfCat

The R31 did orginally come with Windows XP home. Since your not the orginal purchaser of the hardware AND software, IBM has no choice other than to sell you a new version of the software. Thats the way Microsoft licenses its software. The only other choice is to buy a OEM version of Window XP, and download (I think they are still on the IBM web site) all of the IBM hardware XP drivers required to to run the R31.

Sorry

ThinkPad X61 Win XP SP 3: I cannot access the Advanced options for Rescue & Recovery that would let me delete the giant backup file clogging my C: drive. All advice received so far assumes I can find the Advanced section under Rescue & Recovery, but I cannot. No, it is not under ThinkPad Productivity Center; it is not available under All Programs. Rescue & Recovery under All Programs brings up nothing after clicked on. I have been able to configure backups to an external drive, but cannot find the options for deleting backup files on the C: drive. Thank you in advance--this has consumed many, many hours so far to no avail.

so I partitioned my linux so I could get windows on there to play eve and other games without having to worry about ATI crap.

I have a 39GB partition formatted with NTFS that's completely blank right now with the standard boot partition, the root partition and the main filestsym partition from my linux. (default install on arch) I had to delete the swap partition in order to make a 4th partition for windows.

My problem here is that my only cd for installing XP is my old thinkpad rescue and recovery cd. I have used the cd for many a reformat but only on single partition drives. Is there any way to use the recovery cd only on my ntfs partition?

Hi everyone, When I started working in my company, I received T440p model with Windows 7 pre-installed.I have Serail and model number, and I can share if it's required for the solution. However, I installed Windows 10, and now can't go back to Windows 7, without re-installing it. That is really not a problem, but IT technicians seem to have a problem finding a windows serial number for our laptops, so I am kind of stuck now. Is there any way that I can find out what the serial number is so I can reinstal windows 7 again? Thanks,Milos

I should also mention.  I have a Windows 8.1 Pro USB Install as well as a Windows 10 Enterprise USB Install as part of my Microsoft Select, and they both see the 256GB SSD drive to select for the OS.  And the Windows 7 Professional USB Install does work on an older laptop. So I'm thinking it's an issue with Windows 7 and that crappy UEFI BIOS or something along that line.  Not everything is lined up correctly to install Win7.

Hello experts.

I couldn't do a system update with the lenovo update tool nor upgrade the adobe flash player,
so I went to do a system restore using windows system restore.
Everything went fine(no power outage, etc), but when the comp restarted, it showed this:



No OS listed


Backup not listed



I've tried the following options but it's futile.

It seems the HDD's driver is missing? Because it is encrypted with truecrypt? I'm sure there's a backup image with window's system restore and 2 images with lenovo's system restore.

I've tried knoppix live cd to access the harddisk but they're not accessible, probably because I didn't get to enter the truecrypt startup password?

Recovery partition in HDD is deleted.
I need to access all files in the computer before doing a fresh OS install. Advice please.

Good afternoon all,

I'm trying to help a friend out with the above laptop. The issue he has is that when he powers it on, it loads all the way through to the desktop screen, but he's left with a black screen and cursor.

Everything else up to that point works, he gets the Windows 7 loading screen, when it has gone to the black screen - pressing ctrl, Alt and Delete brings up task manager etc, as it should do, but there's just nothing displayed for the desktop.

Can anyone give me any advice on what to look for? I'd have thought it would be a screen problem, but as I said everything else works normally.

Incidentally, booting into safe mode, it does the same thing. You get the white text in the 4 corners saying 'safe mode' and also the current build of windows text.

Thanks in advance

Hi all, I have seen similar issues on the forum but not one like this. Here is my situation when powering on I get the ERROR 0199: System Security Security password retry count exceeded. It immediately goes into BIOS and then the computer freezes. My keyboard does not respond so I can not save/edit any bios settings and am stuck. I have tried using a USB keyboard but this also does not work. I have also tried a different hard drive but the same issue happens. And help would be appreciated!

Hi,
I bought Thinkpad E450 (Free Dos) and was using Ubuntu Gnome 14.04 which was working but because of some work I have to use Windows. I installed Windows 7/8 but the problem is that the system freezes continuously, I click to open a folder it freezes, I open Word it freezes. In 60sec I am only able to use it for 5 sec, for the rest of the time it is hanging. I tried to install the same Windows that I installed in Thinkpad in Acer,Dell laptop it is working perfect, I contacted Lenovo support, they did some test and came up with the result that there is no hardware issue with the laptop. What could be the reason for this behaviour shown by my laptop and what could be the possible solution for the same. Any help is highly appreciated, Thanks in advance, eagerly waiting for some solution.

I hope someone has crossed this issue and has a solution.

I have a Thinkpad 600e and use it in a situation where it needs constant power. I use it as a monitor for my summer home when we go on vacation, However, we have constant power outages and I want to have the laptop boot up automatically when power resumes and we are away. I don't rely on batteries and when I try to keep the power switch engaged (tape), it starts then shuts down.

Can anyone help?

Thanks
 

A:IBM Thinkpad 600e power switch issue...please help

Power switches usually rely on a momentary "on" connection to turn on. A continuous connection invokes a shutdown.
If there is no option under BIOS to restart on power restore, you need to make a pulse generator that provides a contact close on power up and hard wire it in.

but have had no luck. there are no available wireless connections I can connect to.
I have also tried to use USB wireless adapter TP-LINK TL-WN725N to connect to internet. It is able to find available connections but when it tries to connect it says unable to connect and give options to troubleshoot. Once troubleshoot is complete it says to investigate router or access point issues. I have reset the router many times. Other devices are working fine with the internet just not this laptop.
I am running windows 7 64Bit.
Please help.

Can you connect the laptop to the router using a cable at all ?

using just the laptop wireless adapter
unlikely to be this as it is reporting NO networks available - but check anyway please
Check the wireless is switched ON
theres often a physical switch or a combination of the FN and one of the F keys to toggle the wireless on/off
often F2 is used - but note , not always - look for a symbol that looks a little like (( i ))

is the wireless on?

A:ThinkPad (T430) battery compatibility issue

HelloThe batteries for T410/420 are not compatible with T430, even Lenovo genuine ones. Because of T430 features hardware authentification of the battery installed. The batteries for old laptops like T410/420 don't have such features (authentification chips inside). This chip missing causes the battery being installed in the T430 can't be charged.So, you have to purchase Lenovo original battery for T430.
 
UPD
Lenovo original batteries for T430 are backward compatible with T420

Are you booting the same drive (with the same OS on it, not reinstalling the OS) in the machine that works and the one that doesn't?

This computer was a part of a network and keeps trying to connect to it each time Windows loads. It came with a LinkSys Wireless-G Notebook Adapter 2.4 GHz 802.11g card.

The CD is an official copy; clean and has no scratches or nicks. The DVD/CD-ROM will boot other CD's such as music CD's and DVD films and data discs with MS Word files etc on them.

Any help would be appreciated!

Hi guys, I found this forum very helpful   and I hope someone has a solution for my issue also. I have read everything about that kind of problems and what I found is that one of my usb ports isn't working. I've checked, none of the pins are touching. I disassembled the laptop to see if there is something suspicious at the back of the USB, unfortunately everything looks ok. Is there anything else that I have to do with this USB or probably I have an issue with the motherboard? Thanks in advance Kind Regards.Simeon

I recently purchased a T460 with an Ultradock 90w and when the notebook is docked it only shows battery 1 (internal) as charging. Battery 2 is not being used but it is not charging either and it is very very slowly discharging (about 3% over the last few days). If I plug the Thinkpad into its normal power supply outside of the dock both batteries charge (one at a time). Is this normal behavior or is there something wrong with my dock?

I'm a computer tech trying to fix a user's issue, but I have come to a cross roads and cannot complete the fix. Basically I have an HP system where the hard drive is failing or will fail soon based on SMART test. The user wanted this fixed, so we got a new hard drive and I installed it. We also got the recovery dvd's from HP. When I installed the drive and booted into the recovery media it reports an error "Reducer Application Close [Info No HDD]". This is true for either the failed/failing drive in the system or the brand new hard drive. The self test on the new drive passes just fine. I just can't seem to figure out the solution to install this operating system and get passed the No HDD when the computer self test sees it but not the recovery media.

Any ideas/ suggestions for me?

did you try the original harddrive in another computer to see if it was bad? sounds more like bad cable, port or controller issue.

Hi everyone,

I was having big problems with my computer and had my data backed on on an external hard drive. A seagate replica. All my files are on there so I decided to reformat my computer and do a system recovery using the seagate replica. I got an error message and then after 4 hours of running the program it said the recovery was not successful. Seagate said that the data was corrupt.

I have an HP Pavilion running Windows Home Premium.

Well all my files are on my desktop and in my computer. Most of my programs run and I can get on the internet but microsoft office will not open. I tried to uninstall and reinstall but windows stops working and won't do it.

I ran CheckIt registry cleaner and it found alot of errors but still no help with the Microsoft Office.

Help!

I recently attempted to rebulid my Pavilion Notebook using Recovery CD's.  The process seemed to work ok on disks 1-3 which I believe are the Operating System; the process failed when attempting to install the 4th disk which appears to be 3rd party apps and drivers.  On re-attempt the install seems to be successful after skipping installation of the 4th disk.   Question is, what is on the 4th disk and how critical is it to the operations of the laptop?

I'm going back to my Factory Reset because I need to get something off it before I go back to Clean Install (although for some odd reason, my PC runs faster after using Decrapifier to get the bloatware off). My Recovery 1/3 DVD that I made has scratches on it that make it stop at 6%. Is there a way I can get the files off it (on a different PC), put them on a new DVD and continue on my merry way..

PS: Toothpaste trick didn't work

A:Recovery DVD issue

Extract the ISO file from DVD using ImgBurn, burn to another DVD at 4x speed with Verify. ImgBurn - Free software downloads and software reviews - CNET Download.com

Why is it you need to run Factory Recovery if your goal is to Clean Reinstall? Why not just Clean Reinstall following these tips to get a purrfect reinstall of Factory OEM: re-install windows 7

Edit: Running Recovery partition itself from boot is the preferred way to Factory Recover to the same HD as it is more stable. However, I would have the disks or a Win7 installation DVD standing by as a backup since the partition can fail.

Hi, this is my first post

I am having a problem with my laptop computer. A few weeks ago I found a Trojan on my laptop and removed this using spyware doctor. Since then I am having an issue with my wireless connection. I tried to repair my wireless connection by right clicking and an error comes back when stating unable to flush DNS. My system freezes up many times after start up and forces me to shut down. What is strange I can get on when I receive a Spam message from Yahoo messenger. Also the start up is very slow. I tried to run the recovery disc but comes back with a corrupt error when trying to run.

Does anyone have any advice?

A:Recovery Disc issue

Welcome to TSF....

First thing I would suggest is to do a backup of all of the important data on your computer to another media like CD-R, DVD or other media that you prefer to avoid data loose. After that I would then do a complete restore using the recovery disk set for the computer, this will make all of the data dissappear from the computer since it will format the hard drive. WHen this is done any part of the infection you had will be gone and you can then re-install all programming, windows update, service pack(s) and data.

Hi all
Okay, I picked up an emachine w3502 that is infected with spyware and viruses badly. I figure a restore is in order. I make the recovery disc. and use the system recovery link.

it boots into the recovery process, when it opens, it says recovery partition is incomplete and asks for the disc. it copies files and asks for disc 2, it copies files and repeats the process. copies then asks for the other disc, over and over.
I assume that both the discs I made and the recovery partition are corrupt. I have also tried to boot from the CD and it also has the same results.

Any thoughts?
Thanks

I have a WD 2tb external hard drive that now says RAW instead of NTFS. I have bought Easeus Data Recovery Wizard. I tried to scan the files. But for some reason it was interrupted during the scan so it only got some of the data. I went ahead and recovered what it had. Everything was empty and had a size of 0kb. They said this happens sometimes when a scan is interrupted. They guess there is some connection issues between the lost data hard drive and computer. They suggest you
could connect the lost data hard drive to your computer by SATA cable to make it be connected stable. Is this possible? They have a tutorial on how to slave a hard drive but it doesn't seem to be about an external drive. I am not very computer oriented. I really don't know where to go from here. Thanks for any help you can give me.

Please Format Help DIR DIR etc In the end I only recovered about of the files I was looking to get back The most important bieng an outlook PST file Anyways I just feel with all the people Ive read about having great success with these programs that I must be doing something wrong or maybe there is a better program I just dont get it These programs claim they can get all this Format Recovery Issue. Please Help stuff back and other people do fine with them Any recommendations Any help or assistance that anyone can offer is much appreciated Thanks

A:Format Recovery Issue. Please Help

Deleted files are saved in the background, but the space they occupy is usable. Meaning, if you download a new file, install a new program, etc..., the space will be used and the deleted file will be gone for good. As far as I know. When you reinstalled that 5-6 gigs, you were overwriting files you now want to recover. Not sure what you can do at this point to get them back. If you read up on data recovery, you'll find that you really have to use it with care and rather quickly.

One of my users got the Windows XP Recovery "virus" last evening. He was RDCed into his desktop from home. I looked this morning and recognized it was not really a hard drive failure. I looked at the guide which suggested removing the Hidden attribute and running Anti-MalwareBytes (which I did). I ran it twice which returned diseased files. I cleaned it. I still can't get IE to work, etc. Where do I go from here?

You are posting in the Windows 2000 forum, I have edited your title and moved your post to the Windows 7 forum for better results.
It sounds like your HDD has major issues. On another computer download the ISO Image for Seatools in my signature and burn the image to CD using IMGBurn also in my signature. Boot off of the newly created CD and run the Short and Long tests on the Drive. If either fail then the drive needs to be replaced.

A:Flashdisk Recovery Issue

On a Windows PC you can use a utility such as CHK-Mate to try to recover data from the files. No guarantees this will work though.

Sorry if this isn't the right forum for this but at least it's an XP question and Im kinda in a rush for an answer Alright here's the situation Data Recovery issue And sorry it's long I'm trying to be detailed I'm trying to recover a Word file for my gf that's about pages long Im reasonably confidant that I've figured out how the file was removed but Im not so sure how to recover it began editing a version of the Data Recovery issue document about pages saved a version of this document with the same name to a different folder finished editing document Now there is one page and one page document with the same name in different folders copied original page document to new folder overwriting new page document I have tried A UnDelete a program off the web that recovers deleted files It didn't work assumedly because the file wasn't deleted in a conventional manner ie sent to the recycle bin and or because a file with that name still existed B System Restore to a point about midway through the editing process This produced one interesting anomaly When the still page document was opened Word gave me some sort of side-bar about a different version of the file that appeared larger in size and seemed like it might be a more recent update But when i tried to open it Windows told me the file no longer existed presumably for some reason Windows wasn't pointing to the right file anymore C Searching for all files updated in the past several days to make sure the name or extension wasnt drastically changed by accident So I'm reasonably sure that if I had the necessary tool the file will still be intact since no major installations or anything would have overwritten what should still be an intact though unreachable area of the Hard Disk Is there a program or method that will find something like an quot overwritten quot or otherwise unreachable file I know professional data recovery people do this kind of thing but that's a bit drastic For the record I'm fairly technically competent so I can understand a fairly complex solution

A:Data Recovery issue

It's one thing to "delete" a file, but it is another thing to overwrite it. If the file is truly overwritten with new data, then you probably won't be able to recover it through ordinary means. In any case, you might want to take a look at Restoration and PC Inspector.

Just wanted to say hello, I do not know very much about computers but am trying to learn.  I am currently working on my old computer which has Windows 7, I was having a problem with windows, that when I tried to log on it said that it was trying to do a system repair and then shut down.  so I did a reinstall and ended up with two Window 7 programs.  I was able to delete one, however now it is saying that the recovery disc is almost full.  I have done a defrag, and that did not clear any space and wondered if there was anything I could do to clear space for if there was any other option for me.  Thank you for advice that you can give me Julie
