    Good morning!
    A couple of questions. By blank, I am assuming that means a black screen? Is there a white cursor (Blinking or not) up in the upper left hand corner of the screen? Do you have access to another computer?
    Thanks, Ron

Tried posting a couple of times before, but guess they didn't show up, so will try again.
Just for grins and giggles, try the following and see if it doesn't do the trick.
1-remove and reseat the hard drive and try again.
2-remove and reseat the memory module(s) and try again.
3-remove the battery & power cord and let set for awhile. At least for 1/2 hour and maybe as long as over night.

Try these as a first step and let me know how you come out.
Thanks, Ron

I need to do a factory restore on an ibm thinkpad r31 no disks f11 takes me to boot setuo but no restore option help


When the system first starts, the following message will be shown on a blank screen:
To start the recovery program, press F11
This message will stay on the screen for about 2 seconds, this will be there every time you start it when it's powered off. If the F11 key is pressed while the message is displayed, then the system should enter the service partition.

Keep trying it because sometimes when the computer comes on you have to do it at the correct time until it catches. I've had that problem and I kept doing it over and over again. It also could mean that your recovery partition is not there. Have you had your system reinstalled before by not using the recovery or the disk? If so your whole hard drive could have been formatted so there won't be a partition to go to when pressing f11.

If that fails then a repalcement hard drive and a cd with the image on it can be obtained by going here

I need to format my Thinkpad laptop


If you have a system recovery disk set, just run it. Make sure that your bios has your optical drive (cd drive) as the first boot item.

If you have no recovery disk set, you can use any retail version of windows, and download/install all the necessary device drivers from www.ibm.com

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.

DVD


Hi,
I don't mean to disagree with my associate, but DVD players for R series (or T, A, etc) can be found for less than 20.00 US (Ebay is a good example)
For that matter, we've got at least a dozen at our shop which we sell for 25.00
Installation is very simple as well, just pop the old drive out, put the new drive in.
Good luck

IBM Thinkpad error code 19990301 is a Hard-Disk sector problem. Basically your hard-drive is faulty and you need to replace it. This is why it wont boot; because the area of the hard-drive that stores data is damaged.
