Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional With Servise Pack 2 (e8503040) for PC

Windows XP won't boot and safe mode doesn't work

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.

Well hate to give you the bad news but it sounds like your hard drive as died. The error code you mentioned (0X000000ED) designates file system damage. (Referenced here http://support.microsoft.com/kb/297185). Your best solution would be to replace the hard drive in a repair shop.

    It is also possible that reformatting your hard drive *may* repair this temporarily but will likely re-occur. I just figured you should have all of the options available to you.

IBM Thinkpad T30 2366 won't boot after the IBM Thinkpad screen


you can go to the BIOS setting? if you can,look for "Boot Device Priority" or something like that,it's usually placed on Advanced settings. Set the first boot device as your harddisk,save the settings and restart your computer
Please let me know if it's working or not

Won't boot in safe mode


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.

Laptop turns on, goes to first screen which reads IBM TRHINKPAD. THEN FLASHES OFF TO NEXT SCREEN WHICH READS THE WINDOWS XP LOGO then it goes black and doesnt come back on


Your installation of Windows is most probably corrupted. Try pressing and holding the F8 button on your keyboard when the 'IBM THINKPAD" screen disappears. That should bring you to a Windows menu where you can select various modes. Select Safe Mode and press enter. If it boots, then you know that something's wrong with Windows and not the notebook itself. What have you installed prior to this problem? Maybe you should try uninstalling it while in safe mode, and then try starting up Windows normally again.

If your windows doesn't start anyway, you should get some live OS (OS that can boot from CD) like Ubuntu or Puppy Linux, so you can save the data from C: partition (burn it or copy it elsewhere) and then reinstall your copy of Windows XP.

T30 laptop - no picture on screen


It sounds like you may have the computer set to boot to an external monitor source. Try using the fn key and whatever "f" key up top that toggles the monitor source. if this doesn't work, try pressing f8 when booting up and boot into windows safe mode to see if it may be a driver issue or some kind of resolution issue.

Good Luck!

Continuous windows xp startup failure


That's usually caused by a bad system driver. Next time it boots to the "start windows normally" page, select 'safe mode'. If the system boots well in safe mode, you can start from there by replacing the drivers from the system board on up until you've solved the problem.

Tried to install update and computer crashed


A few ways to try and eliminate.
Upon startup F8 for safe mode: Last Know Configuraton

Hit F8 for safe mode. Go into accessories>system tools>system restore
Doesn't work then: need Windows CD setup. Let it run and hit R for Recovery Console. At the DOS prompt type FIXMBR or FIXBOOT.

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.

T30 boot problem


Sorry, but probably your T30 (my favorite Thinkpad) has developed a problem with one of it's memory slots. It is an inherent problem with the Thinkpads. The way to tell is topress on the memory cover in a way that pushes the memory (or more to the point, the memory slots) into the motherboard. While keeping pressure on the memory, try to boot up. I use a T30, and have worked on several others, all have at least one slot with this problem. Also try taking out the memory which is closest to the front of the system, and pushing in on the remaining one. Hope this helps. If this is the problem, there are a couple of things you can do to keep it running, but probably with only one ram stick. Goood luck
