Not booting up


First - re-seat the harddisk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot andgo into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If itdoesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.Then the hard drive needsto be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer orlaptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioningcomputer/laptop again.

My laptop will not boot - Operating System Not Found, cannot enter BIOS system - nothing at all. When I try to access the BIOS, the key keeps beeping. It is a Type 2373. Thank You -- IMCND


How are you attempting to enter the setup (BIOS)? Here are the steps:
Press the blue Access IBM button when the message "To interrupt normal startup, press the blue Access IBM button" is displayed to enter the ThinkVantage Productivity Center, then select Start setup utility to open the BIOS Setup Utility.

Sound problem with IBM RE50 NOTEBOOK


Hello sir,
Try this technique...as I have run into this before on a few occasions working on some customers' laptops:

first, you may have had some packet loss during the download of the driver so start from scratch and do the following:
1) uninstall any existing drivers first.
2) reboot
3) go to IBM's website for the driver, not the soundcard's website...then make CERTAIN you pick the most appropriate soundcard - has to match your model ie: R50e

4) when downloading the driver, select "save" and do not select "run" when you are downloading this driver. Proceed to save the file to a predetermined location such as below example.

5) You can create a new folder within explorer under documents & settings, your user name, programs.
Call the new folder "Drivers"
6) complete the download
7) Windows will still not know that a driver has been downloaded. Windows only knows what windows has been told and at this point, there IS no driver.

8) Go find the location and click on the install icon for the driver.
9) The driver should ultimately end up in the "ini" files within "system32" folder but don't believe you should have to worry about that.
10) follow on-screen directions while installing the driver.
11) after driver has been installed, then reboot one last time and you should have some sound.

12) if you still have no sound, then you may have some corrupted system config files which are not installing the driver files correctly or you might try using some alternative speakers

Read corrupted hard disks


one thing u should know first is that you cannot open the hard disk in another system if it is not the same system, because of the drivers and chip set. so to confirm this, u must test it from a system that is the same with yours.

IBM T42 with no sound card


It should be part of the mainboard rather than a separate card. Try uninstalling the drivers, then reboot and see if it detects new hardware.
