I'd like to upgrade the HD of my Thinkpad 570 2644-1AG from 4GB to 10MB or even more. IBM system FRU parts list only shows 6,10 and 12 GB as compatible drives. I have found a 40GB Toshiba IDE drive ,...


It most likely will work, but the BIOS (might be too old) may not allow you to access the full capacity of the hard disk.
You would normally lose approx. 10% of the capacity when you format the hard disk.

This file/command, mscdex 2.23, is the MS-DOS CD-ROM extensions file. If this has glitched or is corrupted it generally won't stop the computer from running, but it will stop it from reading CD's or newer CD's. The first link bellow is the history and the download for the mscdex, but the machine will need to be up and running in order to download it. If you can't get the machine running, try to reinstall the operating system.You may need to flash the bios if it won't let you install the new system or read from the disc. The second link bellow is for the most recent bios flash for your machine. To flash the bios you will need to make a bootable floppy, using a different computer (obviously). The third link is for a updated CD-ROM driver from IBM, that may do the same as the mscdex, and the fourth link is to the driver list for the 380ed at IBM's support site. You might browse over them and find some updated drivers or patches you need.

Your problem sounds like the system isn't finding the hard disk

Thinkpad 380ed + USB PCMCIA-card. Can it work?


This is probably due to the power requirements of the pcmcia card you have plugged in. There are 5volt and 3.3volt slots. You have probably plugged a 5volt card into a 3.3volt pcmcia slot.

1) This is a typical problem when the CMOS battery is very weak or dead, it will continually display the date and time and reboot with the same errors until you change the CMOS battery. On this model it is behind the door that houses the memory chip, above the battery, if you have the laptop turned over and battery closest to you. <--best bet, its a dead CMOS battery.

2) You can get to the BIOS to run tests, one of 2 ways, either hit the ESC key and other keys to get a 301 error or hold the F1 key and boot, you should get into BIOS. (You probably won't be able to do this until you replace the CMOS battery.) From there you can run diagnostic tests on various components.

3) Lastly, you can update the BIOS. From inside the EASY-SETUP bios you should be able to copy the BIOS part number, date, etc. Look for the BIOS update based upon model # either thru a search on the web or directly on the IBM website (a search on google of "bios update thinkpad 380ed" will bring up a link for the IBM page.) If you choose to do a BIOS update, read the directions carefully and remember not to power off the machine while the update is happening. If you've never updated a BIOS before, get someone who has to walk you thru it before attempting it by yourself.

GOOD LUCK :)
