I have a lenovo T420. Its been a really good computer. Recently when i tried to start the computer I noticed that it does not load the windows 7 properly - instead it takes me to the Boot Menu screen ( which gives me the option of ATAPI CDO:, ATA DDO , PCI LAN-) I can interupt the process with the Thinkvantage button - i was wondering if you knew how I could boot perhaps a previous version to get me logged back on -

You will need to change the boot order in the BIOS. If you make the Hard Drive #1 in the boot order, this message should go away. Do you know how to get into the BIOS?

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
