Question about IBM ThinkPad T30 2366 Notebook
I have a problem with an IBM ThinkPad T30. It's not my computer and I'm used to desktops. It's running on XP Professional, but it won't boot. I get this error message: STOP: 0X000000ED (0X82307E30, 0XC0000006, 0X00000000, 0X00000000) When I try to boot in safe mode - nothing happens. What could be the problem? I may have really messed up, because after trying unsuccessfully to boot this computer, I installed my Windows XP Home Edition. I know that I shouldn't have, because of drivers and such, but the same thing happens. Nothing - not even in safe mode. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
I bet your hard drive crashed on you. You might have to buy yourself a new hard drive and replace your old one with it. Then format it and install a fresh copy of your Operating System on it. Your error condes here indicate to me that you either got a blue screen or similar. Blue Screens and/or the code that you stated here are usually caused by a software issue, and are rarely hardware issues. But in this case, you may have gotten something bad on your computer, such as a virus or serious spyware, that wiped out your Operating System And caused your hard drive to crash/become corrupt. As I mentioned, try replacing your hard drive. Hope this helps.

The same model ThinkPad can have different types of network, video and audio drivers and unless you know exactly which one is installed in your ThinkPad, you need to download all the drivers and install each driver until you find the right driver.
When you download the drivers, write down the device driver and it's file name so you have a record of which driver you are installing and which directory the unzipped files are located on your hard drive.
Go to the IBM/Lenovo WEB site - support/download page and download the latest Windows XP or Vista device drivers for your model computer, Use this link: -
