Goto and you can search the error cods there. That's how I found out about the error code I had on my IBM ThinkPad 600 series. Hope this helps

Without seeing the error, you may be best just typing the number into Google.

IBM Thinkpad 600e (2645),error 189 and could not installing win98

Usually this means a hardware failure. I would suggest reseating the CMOS battery overnight to reset the system. Also you might want to replace it as well. It could also be more serious such as a motherboard component failure.
Also IBM error code # 189 according to Scott Mueller's Upgrading and Repairing PC's (8th edition) - "Excessive incorrect password attempts." Is there a password on your CMOS ?
Also try hitting ESC key on boot to bypass. Good luck!

Probably the display driver is messed up. Best option is to reinstall the operating system.

An alternative is to have a Linux-savvy friend try to boot it up
with a Linux-live rescue CD to see if that fixes the display problem and maybe to salvage your personal data from the hard drive.

Ibm think pad 600e

Do a search for memtest86.iso. Burn this image to a cd and reboot your computer. When your computer reboots it should begin checking your memory for errors. If you still have problems it might be your hard drive.

Installing a new O.S.

Your information will not be lost until you make Format or Repartition yor HDD.

So, if you have setup disk for your OS then you can easily install that OS on your HDD.

Just boot from your setup disk and follow the on-screen instruction and beaware don't choose delete/create partition or format during installation.

If any question .... just Ask me.
