Can you get into Safe Mode by repeatedly tapping F8 starting just before the Windows Splash Screen shows up?

If so, try downloading new video drivers from the Lenovo website.
Then uninstall your old video drivers through Control Panel...Programs and Features.
Reboot (dismissing the Found New Hardware dialog) and install the drivers that you downloaded.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
