IBM Lenovo T400 missing boot manager at start 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.

Need to find start up disk for windows xp pro/ ibm


Well this web page has the specs for you laptop:-

http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/MIGR-54877.html

From what I've seen, it probably had XP loaded originally.

Now you could try contacting Microsoft for a genuine copy of XP complete with COA. Of see if you can get a copy from a PC shop or even ebay.

I'd be tempted to go down the slightly more adventurous route and download a copy of XUBUNTU. Its a Linux based operating system. A lighter version of the main (Ubuntu) designed for older laptops.

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.

Require bios password


IBM BIOS power on password, hard disk password are stored on an EEPROM chip and is almost impossible to crack. There are no backdoor passwords available.
These password protection are set to stop unauthorised access to data on the laptop, also moving the hard disk to another computer to read the data off the hard disk will not work either.
There is a way to hack into the EEPROM, but requires electronic hardware skills to build a reader device, a working computer and software.
For details on IBM password hack go to :-
