READ THIS If you're suffering freezing issues to your SL series ThinkPad

I've owned a ThinkPad SL510 since 2009, been rather happy until I installed the Windows 7 Professional upgrade disc onto it.
After using Word 2007 on it for a while, it hanged completely. BIOS and swapping the RAM around fixed it temporarily but it came back after a month.
Turns out that it's the registry that's very messy. I installed CCleaner and ran it a few times on the registry cleaner, it got rid of a lot of invalid registries. Before this I installed WIndows 7 Ultimate, fresh copy with nothing Lenovo related and I had no issues whatsoever. 
Buggy Windows preinstalls are the culprits but the solution is just simple.
When you've reinstalled your OS that came with the laptop, please download and run CCleaner and run it a few times on the registry cleaner till the registry errors list are empty. I have had no issue since I ran it. Believe me it'll stop you from stressing out from the freeze ups and you wouldn't have to send it in for repairs for no reason!
Owner of: ThinkPad SL510, X131e, X230 (not fond of)
Other systems: MSI GT640, Sony Vaio PCG 709K, Dell Latitude D430,
So my touchpad wasn't working and I have an HP dv6-6135dx. It started being messed up shortly after I took my PC apart to upgrade the screen. Sometimes it worked perfectly, sometimes it was completely unresponsive, sometimes the ring around the touchpad was lit, other times it wasn't etc.... It got worse and worse to the point where the touch pad almost never worked.
I followed this guide, and it didn't fix the problem; however, this got me thinking, and I pulled the keyboard out and reseated the touchpad cable where it connects right under there. BAM works perfectly. THANK YOU so much for this post, for some reason I didn't think to reseat the cable... I must have not plugged it back in completely when I took my laptop apart. You can find the service manual for the dv6t here Its in the first post
