Re: start up problem with my IBM thinkpad windows XP
Type f8 at startup and try last known configuration. if that doesnt work then safe mode. If that doesnt work then try to find a duplicate file (backup), try to find file with dos console - go to windows/system32 and type dir ntoskrnl*.* so youll find out if there was maybe a copy of this file.
IF you HAVE a Fast PC then sometimes its easier to install a fresh copy of windows, then to search for such errors.

The Thinkpad T20 is a laptop computer from IBM designed for business use. This computer comes with the Windows XP operating system and--if necessary--can be reloaded with the operating system. All you need to perform this operation is the installation disc for Windows XP and a valid product key. This product key can be found on the bottom of the computer or with the documents included with the machine (if Windows XP was pre-installed on the computer).
Windows XP CDProduct key 1 Turn on your T20 laptop computer and press the blue "ThinkVantage" button.
2 Scroll through the options and select the option to boot from your T20's CD/DVD drive. 3 Press the "Enter" key at the welcome window and press the "F8" key once you have read (and agreed to) the license terms for installing the software. 4 Select the drive on which you want to install Windows XP and press the "C" button, followed by the "Enter" button. 5 Press the "Enter" button again to start the installation process. When prompted, enter the product key for Windows XP. Once the setup finishes, you can use the computer.
If your trying to reinstall a new copy of Windows in your computer then first thing you need to do is change the Boot sequence of your computer so it will load the Windows CD you inserted then it will run the set up.
To change Boot sequence: 1. Go to BIOS - Press F1 or F2 (depends on model of your computer) immediately after you turn you computer on 2. Go to Boot Menu on the top of the window 3. Change your Boot priority - make sure your dvd drive is your first or primary boot. 4. Press F10 to save and exit.
Make sure you have your Windows CD inserted before pressing F10 coz your computer will restart and will loadautomatically load and run the Windows Setup
Note: If a message "Press any key to boot from CD" appear on a black screen press any key to start the set up

No, this is a known error within Windows. Read more information on it here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/555302
But, if you are like me and don't like to read, just put your windows XP installation CD into the CD-ROM, boot up from the CD-ROM, DO NOT reinstall the operating system...just repair the installation and run "chkdsk /r".
Once that is done, restart the machine and it should boot up fine.
This could be a problem, not sure if its a software related or if the hard drive is bad. If you can find a windows xp cd. Try and wipe out the hard drive and install windows xp on it. If it goes thru then you'll just need the drivers. If it errors out on you then you know its a problem with the hard drive and you'll need to replace it.
If you get windows xp installed on it, let me know and I'll help you with the drivers.
when you start your pc press F8 key or theF10 key on start up you have to press it several time for it to go to the system restore program. this will reinstall windows but only if you have not used the cd to change the settings on you computer it may erase all data and restore it to factory settings. You also can do this with a back up to save you file or you can transfer them to a differnt device for safe keeping.
that message means that windows 2000 professional/98 is not installed which means you have a blank computer you need to put the disk that came with it in and install the OS or purchase one but i'll warn you now those disk are not cheap around a couple hundred bucks
