Windows 7: Windows Startup Issues

27 Jun 2012   #1

Windows Startup Issues

Ok well this has a lot of components to it so I will begin with the computer itself. It is a Lenovo ThinkPad Edge with a 500 gigabyte hard drive, 4 gigs of RAM, an Intel i5 processor, and an Intel Graphics Family video card that was bought from the company's online store. A few days ago I took the laptop out and started up as usual. Once logged in and at my desktop the computer refused to run any programs or even open the start menu for 15 minutes. After things begin to respond the computer runs fine but this worries me. It still continues to do this daily. Today a message appeared at the bottom right corner of the screen saying " Windows 7 Not Genuine Error 7601" I believe. The reason I cannot be more clear on that is because that went away. Since then, I, in a total panic, did several internet searches on the problems but was only directed to either one, but never both. I would like avoid contacting a technician so I came here. I appreciate any help and if you need me to answer any questions relative to this topic I can.
