Question about IBM ThinkPad R31 2656 Notebook

1 Answer

Having problem with IMB thinkpad R31.

Says we apologize for the inconvenience, but windows did not start successfully. a recent hardwareor software change might have caused this.

if your compl.stopped responding,restarted unexpectedly, or was automatically shut down to protect your files and folders, choose Last known Good Configuration to revert to the most recent settings that worked.

if a previous startup attemt was interrupted due to power failure or because the power or reset button was pressed, or if you arent sure what caused the problem, choose Start windows normally.

Safe mode
safe mode with networking
Safe mode with command promt

Last known configuration (your most recent settings that worked)

Start windows normally

I have tried all of those then it gets to the

Microsoft
Windows XP page and says all the same stuff over again. it keeps doing the same thing over and over again

i got to a blue page once and said to disable BIOS if it is caching or shadowing??? i dont have a clue

If you added any exta hardware means kindly remove it and boot the computer
Then you try boot by selecting the option of Boot using last known good configuration.
If the boot is successful then you can boot later booting without any problem.

If boot is not successful and this problem is happened after installing any software or driver software means boot in safe mode by pressing f8 key and uninstall it
