It hasn’t taken you 45 mins to ask me this .... so I are you saying that I need to force another shut down?

I wanted you to remove the RAM and the hard drive and then power on the laptop and let me know if you hear any beep sound.

I unscrewed 2 sections on the back. One had nothing to take out and the other looked like a battery. I took it out and then then put it back in.
Is this what you meant.?

No

Hello,

My name is David.

Power down then power up the computer.

Press F1 at the ThinkPad boot screen.

When the BIOS menu appears, navigate to the option to reset the BIOS settings to factory default and select that option then press F10 to save and exit.

On boot-up test to see if the issue is resolved.

Please let me know the result.

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
