I would be glad to help. If you can provide the complete model number of the laptop which should be written on bottom of the laptop, that would help me provide detailed instructions, but without that information I know that alot of Thinkpad models use a locking mechanism to keep the laptop closed. The location of this mechanism should be near the middle where you would normally lift the laptop open. You will need to slide the lock to the left or right and hold it as you lift the the lid of the laptop. If you are able to provide the model number I can provide a more detailed description. Let me know if you have any trouble with those instructions.
Please let me know if my previous instructions were helpful or not. If I was able to resolve your problem please leave a rating on the question page here:
