  1. I need some serious help,

    I was playing a game on my laptop and the good ol' blue screen comes up. so i restart windows normally, and it loads well and the screen is on, but is frozen up after windows gets going , and now when i go to start up i have no screen whatsoever, i can hear the fan running though, and i tried hooking a monitor up to it but got no output, so i set it aside for about a half hour, and took the battery out figuring i just overheated it since its been left running for about 30 hours or so, and i still have this problem, its a Lenovo Thinkpad R61 running Vista, any thoughts or suggestions would be GREAT!

    If you can boot the machine into safe mode, run a system restore.
