    Can you explain your problem a little bit more detailed?

    Looks like you can't start your computer. Is that right?

    Are you asking what an "OS" is?

My computer will not boot windows xp os


Do you mean it won't pick the disc? If so, try F10 it should also give you a boot menu if you don't see press any key to boot from cd... The other option is boot into BIOS and change your boot order. CD-ROM/DVD should be the 1st option.8_28_2012_7_14_07_am.jpg

I have a ibm thinkpad r51 but when i turn it on it will load to somewords and il say media test failure check cable exiting intel boot agent then it will jut stay there


It's trying to boot from a LAN or Network. You want it to boot from your hard drive.

Temporary Fix that you will have to change each time you turn on the laptop:
Notice the screen when you press the power button, at some point it will tell you the keys to hit to get into the Bios or System Setup and the key to hit to Change the Boot Order. Hit the key to Change the Boot Order and select the Hard Drive

Permanent Fix
Notice the screen when it boots up and press the key that allows you to get into the BIOS or System Setup. Tab over to the area that allows you to set the Boot Sequence. Set your Hard Drive as the 1st Boot.
The best boot sequence is:
1. CD/DvD Drive First (Just make sure nothing is in the drive when you boot)
2. Hard Drive 2nd

Download the boot disk for your laptop from the location below.

Good Luck.

Thinkpad wont get past boot page


Hold down the F1 key, and power on the computer to get into the "Easy Setup".
Change the boot sequence to boot from CD-ROM first, save your settings, then restart the computer and have your Widows CD (or original system restore CD) in the CD player so it will read the CD before the information on the harddrive. If that don't work, replace the harddrive

IBM T20 hard disk won't start, no display, and beeping


it may be drive issue,:

- replace the hd and cmos battery,
- change boot device priority in BIOS
to 1st: cd/dvd
2nd: hd
3rd: floppy or network boot or usb-boot

- exit BIOS saving changes: yes
- reboot from windows cd-rom for testing the cd drive
- try booting from new hd (if bios recognizes it,
then install operation system

- if still the same prob, see a technician about this issue

Boot sequence


161 and 163 error means you have to change your CMOS battery. open the laptop, change the cmos battery and you should be able to set the date and time.

after which you can access the bios by pressing F1 upon boot up and change the boot sequence after that
