Hi! I am so sorry to bother you all with this...I was just hoping that someone might know what the problem is with my laptop. It is an old laptop, but I'm a college student and I'm on a budget... Okay, so basically when I turn it on, the screen is black with the following messages: 130496 KB Ok 161 163 Then, there is a blueish/turquoise square that pops up on the screen and says "Error 00161 00163" The next blueish square is a calendar that prompts me to set the date and time. Then, the background changes to ThinkPad and the new blueish square says Off > On with a flashing cursor. At this point, I cannot do anything, the mouse doesn't work and none of the keys work. Everytime I try, I am forced to stop here and just turn off the laptop.[/I][/B] If anybody knows what this means, please let me know, if you have time. Any suggestions/advice are welcome! Thanks in advance for your time and help! I really appreciate it.
