Daughter had to reboot Vista last week after releasing IP in attempt to logon to a wireless network. When reboot completed the password interface popped up, she typed in password for profile and after completing the normal wait to bring up desktop the screen blanks with mouse on top. This is a widescreen Z61m 9450-a36 Thinkpad and I get same problem on external monitor. Odd thing is you can hit Fn F5 to manage wireless and menu pops up over the pink background just fine. If you go into safe mode, you get a blank black screen with safe mode in all four corners. i have run chkdsk and went fine. I did a Norton scan and it was fine. I could not run SFC /scannow and got a "Windows Resource Error" when I try to run but i have found the CBS. Log file.

I can get to a c: by putting in the DVD and booting to a utility. Would like to update some drivers but I can't figure out a way to run a browser although I do have Internet access. Any ideas on something I could install? I have about 40Gb available. I have the Vista code to reinstall the software. Could I install to another directory so I can recover the main Windows and application environment????
