A friend owns a Lenovo notebook.
The system sometime does not boot Windows 7. If this happens, a black screen with a lifebelt boots. I've never seen such a lifebelt screen on another system (Windows support isn't my daytime job).
After several hours, the system finally manages to boot Windows 7. After a few days of normal work, the notebook shows the lifebelt again. This screen comes from Lenovo's Recue and Recovery solution.
I'd like to know, which standard tools exist to
- repair the system
- or identify the problem reason
While this is probably a broad question, I'd be too happy to even receive 'simple' hints.
But maybe there exists an application, which contains a good set of tools to assist. Does such a app exist?
A Windows DVD/CD isn't available, since the notebook comes with a recovery partition. Thus, the only option seems to completely reset to shipped system state.
In this case, I assume that no option exists, which allows to save and later recover the state of application programs - after the complete reset. Am I right?
