Try to format the System using NTFS and if it still says 'corrupted', the Hard Drive is faulty and you will have to get a new one

Hope This Helps

Laptop turns on, goes to first screen which reads IBM TRHINKPAD. THEN FLASHES OFF TO NEXT SCREEN WHICH READS THE WINDOWS XP LOGO then it goes black and doesnt come back on


Your installation of Windows is most probably corrupted. Try pressing and holding the F8 button on your keyboard when the 'IBM THINKPAD" screen disappears. That should bring you to a Windows menu where you can select various modes. Select Safe Mode and press enter. If it boots, then you know that something's wrong with Windows and not the notebook itself. What have you installed prior to this problem? Maybe you should try uninstalling it while in safe mode, and then try starting up Windows normally again.

If your windows doesn't start anyway, you should get some live OS (OS that can boot from CD) like Ubuntu or Puppy Linux, so you can save the data from C: partition (burn it or copy it elsewhere) and then reinstall your copy of Windows XP.

ThinkPad A21m won't boot into Windows


Did the laptop you got come at least with a windows XP cd? If so boot the laptop off of that and try to install Windows XP and see if it goes thru. Just make sure during the installation you tell it to delete the partitions first and then let it go thru that way you know for sure the hard drive is clean at that point.

Thinkpad 600E


Error 19990301 on a Thinkpad 600 usually indicates that the hard drive is not properly connected, and error code 19990305 signifies "no bootable device". So, it's the hard drive.

First of all, I would try removing and replacing the drive to see if that cures it. You can get the service manual from Lenovo at http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?lndocid=LWIK-3SYPX2

If this doesn't fix it, the hard drive is faulty. However, small size hard drives (10 or 20Gb) which suit these older machines are very cheap on eBay.

Computer boot up


There is either a problem with the graphics driver not starting properly or the boot.ini file of the operating system is corrupt. First thing to try is press F8 on boot up and this will take you into safe mode, if prompted for a password just press 'enter' When in safe mode highlight the line 'Last known good configuration' and press enter for a reboot, if all boots ok then it should be right. If still no screen, press F8 again on next boot up and this time select boot windows in safe mode and if it boots ok, there maybe a graphics fault or a driver error for something that starts on boot up, as in safe mode only the minimal drivers start (hence safe mode). If you get into safe mode first, right click my computer>properties>hardware tab>device manager, then go down the hardware list to graphics adapter,and click on '+' sign to your adapter, right click on line and select uninstall. Restart the pc then it will be automatically installed again and the drivers loaded. If you are still unable to boot then it is a process of ilimination to find what is causing the problem, but it will more than likely after trying the above be a windows system file error and require you to use your XP disc for a system repair.
