Start up difficulties.

May 4, 2016 2:20PM PDT


I have a Lenovo ThinkPad T400 and recently my battery died, not that it lasted long. The device was turned on and i wanted to move it forgetting that it would emmediately lose power once i remove the charger.
I moved it and turned it back on and i got windows to start but it was freezing a lot and it even completely froze so i had to use the power button to turn it off and then on again. Once i turned it back on it would show some start up information but it never gets to the windows loading screen, it just stays dark.

I have no idea how to fix it, any advice is welcome.

Thanks Happy

Which OS?

And do try safe mode. Remember you can blow up an OS with random shutdowns like this.

Windows 10

It doesn't give me the option to choose between safe mode and normal.
