Starting about a week ago, my Lenovo v570 laptop started acting weird. When I shut down the computer the screen turns off, but the lights and fans are still running, I have left it for several minutes and nothing happens. I end up holding the power button for about 10 seconds to turn it off. And when I do turn the computer back on a notepad opens up named "debug" containing a very long message starting with:

[1204/] Corrupt Index file[1204/]

This has been happening for the past several days now and I have come to worry a lot about the situation. I am not much of a computer.. anything! So I have no no idea what I should be doing or what I can do from now on.

Is there anyone who can help me with this situation?

Not sure but it almost sounds like you have a windows update that is pending. After you do the SP1 for Windows 7 for example. there is a bit of time where the screen is black as it applies updates (and periodically shows some progress). I wonder if that might be what is happening? – MikeAWood Dec 8 '12 at 1:10
MikeAWood - i have tried leaving the computer on overnight to do... whatever it needs to do... but it stays on a screen thats off, and lights are still on ( but i did notice that the capslock, numberpad, charger, charging lights are off) – River2Apple Dec 8 '12 at 4:38
are there any error messages in the event log (start run eventvwr.msc). Does the problem also occur if you boot from a liveCD (to determine i it is a hardware of a software problem). – Hennes Feb 26 at 8:30
