You can reset login password with the
help of password reset disk or by using windows XP bootable disk. If
you don't have any of these then you can use stellar phoenix
password recovery software to reset password.
There are two possibilities, the hard drive has issues or windows has corrupted files. If you have a cd installation disc for a fresh install, try to see if the operational system will load, no change! the hardware should be checked in the event it needs to be replaced.
Your only option if you don't have the reboot cd's would be to find a windows xp, vista or windows 7 cd. Install windows and then go to this page to download and install the hardware drivers for your laptop. They have drivers for all the operating systems.
At this point install any software you want to use on your laptop. Be sure to go into your BIOS and set the 1st boot device to the cd drive so that way it boots up automatically from the windows cd.
Try this; if the button on the front of the CD drive won't work, and Windows won't eject the CD, look for a tiny hole on the front of the CD drive. It should be somewhere near the eject button. Take a paper clip and unfold it; the end of the paperclip should just fit into the hole in the CD drive's faceplate. Press in gently and this should eject the CD. You may need to do this during a reboot of the computer (you could also try holding the eject button as the computer is rebooting).
Do a search for memtest86.iso. Burn this image to a cd and reboot your computer. When your computer reboots it should begin checking your memory for errors. If you still have problems it might be your hard drive.
You did not include the specific model of your IBM Thinkpad.
Nonetheless, pls open a browser and go to Google. Type IBM "ThinkPad" (less the quotes), enter. On the next page, scroll down to the bottom and click "Search within results". On the new page, type "ABCD" (less the quotes) drivers. Replace ABCD with your ThinkPad's type number which can be found at the sticker at the bottom of the laptop. Next display would be the drivers for your model. Try and locate the page that says "Lenovo Support & Downloads......." or the "www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/.....
If for some reason you can not still find the drivers, pls post back the laptop's type number (4 digits)
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back as requested, how things turned up or should you need additional information.
