Question about IBM ThinkPad T40 2373 Notebook
My T40, when I turn it on, will not load anything onto the screen 90% of the time. When it does load up, it says there is a problem and asks if I want to boot in normal or safe mode. Either one I choose, it will begin to load Windows before it crashes. The computer continues to run, but nothing is visible on the screen. Also, I can still open and close the d: drive. I do not have a floppy on this computer. I was told that I needed a cd with a bootable operating system, but when I tried that, the screen did not load anything... the cd powered up, but nothing came up on the screen. Nothing has happened to the computer physically... it hasn't been dropped, no water spills, etc. I presume that there is a virus, but I need to get onto the computer to run a system cleaner and virus scan. Does anyone have any suggestions?
Check your RAM, reseat them, if you have RAM in both slots, swap them around. If possibe test them in another computer.
