Starting an IBM Thinkpad T43 in safe mode allows you to troubleshoot technical issues that you otherwise couldn't. Often when a system has a virus or other type of malicious program, safe mode is the only way to locate and delete the problem. In safe mode, only the computer's essential programs are enabled, and only the files necessary to running the system are in use. Learn how to start an IBM Thinkpad T43 in safe mode using a few fairly easy steps.

1.Close all programs and restart the IBM Thinkpad T43.

2.Press "F8" repeatedly after the IBM logo appears, but before the operating system logo appears. If the "F8" key doesn't work, restart the computer and try pressing the "F11" key repeatedly.

3.Press the "down arrow" key to select "Safe Mode."

4.Press the "Enter" key. The computer will boot up in safe mode.

A Thermal error on the T43 usually indicates a problem with overheating. This can be caused by many reasons:
1. Dirt build up on fan or fan louvres causing fan to turn slowly and not being able to cool the system properly.
2. Blocking of air inlets to the laptop. Do not use on your lap, or on soft surfaces such as blankets, bedsheets, etc.

If you feel a lot of heat from the air out of the laptop, then the system is over heating.

You can run fan diagnostics as follows:
1. Turn on the computer and check the air turbulence at the louver near the PC Card slot.
2. Run Diagnostics --> ThinkPad Devices
--> Fan.

Here is the T43 maintenance manual to see how to check and or replace the fan.

Sometimes (rarely) laptops need a bit of a kick to get them going! When confronted with this particular issue, I power off the laptop, disconnect the power supply, remove the battery and discharge any residual charge by pressing the power on switch for a couple of seconds.
Replace the battery, re-attach the power and reattempt the normal power on cycle. See it that kicks it into action!

Make sure the fan is not jammed, if it is free running then try a replacement.

On the right side of the keyboard look at the top row of keys. You will find one that reads "PrtSc". This is the key you press to take a snapshot of the screen.

Before doing so, make sure to open the application that you want to paste the snaptshot to first so that the image is saved onto that application. Once you press the key, go to the application, then paste the image. Let me know if this works.

Here is a fast test for the inverter in the display. Take a small flashlight and shine it in to the bottom right corner where the windows start button should be. While shining the light in try looking at the screen. If you can see the Start icon then the inverter PS or the FL tube in the display is bad. The least expensive fix is to replace the Inverter. There exist detailed instructions for the disassembly of the display panel as well as sources for the part itself. If there is further problems contact back later.
