ThinkPad released in 2011. This version of the T420 is thicker than the T420s and lacks integrated USB 3.0. The T420i uses the same chassis, so most T420 repair guides work interchangeably.

@sarahjad10 this could be caused by corrupted files in your Windows start up. I would suggest that you get a Live CD of something like Puppy Linux and either use a CD or a USB stick and set your Computers BIOS to boot from whatever media you choose. Then see if you can access your computer and your hard drive. If so, you may have to reinstall your OS. Make sure that you backup all your files first.

Glad to see you back. Sounds like you were spared the worst but unfortunately so many have lost so much. Kudos for everything you did and will do for your real-life community.


@refectio thanks my friend. Good to be back and you are right, we were absolutely fortunate.

The first thing I'd look into is if you're still using the original hard drive. These machines are 5-7 years old and laptop hard drives usually begin to fail at 5 years. If the drive is original, check the power on hours to get an idea how heavily used it is. Original drives with higher hours are common.

If the drive is original and has high hours, stop using the laptop and replace the drive. If you need to move your data, the easiest way to do it is to put the old drive in an external drive enclosure for data migration. You can either save it for low risk data or destroy it at that point. This guide covers hard drive replacement.

If the drive is newer, the first thing I'd try is running SFC /SCANNOW. You need to be an administrator to do this, but this will replace any damaged system files. If it detects bad files and can't replace them, make a backup and wipe the system so you can start over with a clean slate.
