    So I have a lenovo sl500 laptop, that runs windows vista home basic.
    I went to turn it on yesterday, and it did all the normal things.
    It went to the thinkpad lenovo screen, then gave a windows progress bar at the bottom ( like it usually does ) gives the circular vista icon and sound, and then brings up the user login screen. I log on, it says welcome, and brings me to a black black screen. I have a mouse on screen that responds to movement, but not respond to right or left click. It stays here and doesn't load the home screen. I have run the memory test application from the start up. It said I had an error # 8603. I have found that this means CMOS checksum bad. I have run the setup bios utility, and set everything to manufacturer defaults. Still nothing. I hav checke the back up battery, and it meters at 3.1 v ( Which is good..) so. Do I have a bad motherboard, possibly a bad hard drive? Whoever can help it would be appreciated.
