T22 disk read error


Sounds like the Operating System is corrupt. I would re-format the hard drive and re-install the OS that should solve the problem. If not then the Hard drive needs to be replaced.

I need to know how to format my IBM Thinkpad R30 type 2656's hard drive


Open "My Computer".

Click with the SECOND (usually the RIGHT) mouse-button on the icon for the hard-drive.
Click 'Format'.
Click 'OK' to proceed.

I hope that you have backed-up _all_ your files (music, contacts, E-mail) before you do any of the above!

My ibm thinkpad r51 is not starting up just keeping giving me error message and it doesn't recognize the hard drive in boot. I have to take the battery to stop the system trying restart the window again...


It appears the hard drive is faulty.
Does the hard disk LED flash when the laptop boots up?
Go into the BIOS configuration and see it the hard drive is detected, (then Startup - Boot - and look at IDE HDD0 it should list the make and model of the hard drive).
If the hard disk is detected it still could be faulty. To test the hard drive, remove the hard drive and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter and connect it to a working computer's USB port.
If the computer sees this as an external hard drive and you can open the various folders and files then the hard drive is OK and the fault could be the disk controller on the laptop's motherboard.
If the hard disk is not detected the it is faulty and you need to replace the hard drive in the laptop and install Windows etc. to get it working again.

Forgot windows login password for laptop running vista


To remove or change the Windows password is not easy to do, but can be done with Linux Password Removal program. You need a computer savy friend to help you.
The other way is to install Windows from scratch again to get a working laptop again but you may lose your data. There is a way to retrieve your data before you install Windows again.
If you didn't protect the hard drive with a password and if you did and still know your BIOS password, THEN go into the BIOS setup and remove the password on the hard drive first.
Then remove the hard drive from the laptop and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter. Insert the adapter into a working computer's USB port and the computer will see this as an external hard drive. You can then open the folders and view your files. Copy the various folders and files you require to a USB memory stick and/or burn these to a CD etc.
Now you can return the hard drive back to the laptop, install Windows, the device drivers, your programs and copy the data back into the laptop.
It pays to backup your data regurarly because if the hard disk fails and this can happen unexpectedly, you will lose your data.

Re-format laptop hard drive


Hi, If you REALLY need to FORMAT your Hard Drive, that is...SCOUR out ALL THE DATA on it, then get a CD disk with Win 98 FDISK on it. It can be downloaded by a friend who can BURN it for you. Go into STARTUP by hitting appropriate "F" key, (experiment here...), then tell the BIOS to start up in CD drive..
Save setting, restart, at the C:>: prompt, type "FORMAT C:", & telll it to go... Hang onto your hat, your Hard Drive is being SCOURED CLEAN & prepared for new data to be installed... Dugal

Disk read error, please help


If it was dropped on the floor, more than likely, that spinning hard drive is damaged and has failed. The computer caqnnot load the operating system. You will definitely have to replace the hard drive, and hope the data is recoverable. Keep in the mind, the hard drive is constantly spinning, and any shock at 30G's or more can be fatal.

Picture moving a turntable while its playing, accept, instead of spinning at 33.3 rpm's its spinning at 5400 rpms, faster than most car engines......

Good luck.
