Yesterday as I was shutting down my computer (Thinkpad t-60) the computer froze during shut down on the "Windows is shutting down" screen.
When I went to reboot it, it froze at the 1st, "welcome to Thinkpad screen, and would not reboot.
My tech informed me that sometimes this happened due to USBs, and when I boot with none attached, it boots. When I plug everything back in it works, and the machine shut down this time with everything plugged in. However, when I re-booted, same thing, so I had to unplug the USBs and reboot.
When it re-booted, Outlook said it hadn't closed properly and went through the procedure to boot. I had closed Outlook previous to shutting down. I'm not sure if these are related.
Can anyone tell me how to fix the boot problem? Thanks,
