Windows may need to be re-installed or reset to factory defaults using the recovery procedure. If that does not fix it, the hard drive may be failing. You can test the hard drive with Seagate SeaTools for DOS from here:
| Seagate

Make a CD from the downloaded ISO file using Nero or the freeware IMGBurn from here: The Official ImgBurn Website

Boot your Lenovo from the CD to test the hard drive.

I would test the hard drive anyway before trying anything else. Could save you a lot of wasted time if it fails the test.

Messed-up screen
A few days ago I booted my laptop and noticed my screen was suddenly running at a lower resolution (1024 x 768) than normal. In addition, some weird lines and colors randomly pop up and flash on my screen. I am using a Packard Bell laptop, running Windows 7. Any help will be appreciated.
