You should be able to do it with the recovery disk that came with the PC, otherwise, you will just have to re-install windows.

you will see all kinds of locks...look for "default to manufactory" reset yes o no..........

My Sony Bravia get a wide (about a foot) line up and down my screen. It goes off an on when it wants to. It picks up background colors and it stays like that for a while. What can I do?


I don't know what does your mean by "line up and down my screen", if the line goes up from the bottom to reach the top of screen then goes back down to the bottom cycles, that symptom I have never seen. But if the line goes off and on, very high probability is the panel defective (see the picture, the ICs inside the panel loose, shall cause the Vertical or horizontal dead pixel lines). It is the most serious issue on the flat panel TV. Because the manufactory sells the panels, price even excess the TV.
If you need more accurate diagnose, you can post a picture.

My ibm thinkpad t43 displayed a message "hard error D0014" on a small blue screen. when i shut it down by pressing the power button for a few seconds, it restarted. but the programs won't work.


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.

Is there a way to master reset the IBM T43 Thinkpad


No it's not possible to do it with just a button or replace it to factory settings.
The T43 Comes with WinXP or OS/2 Warp or Windows 2000 Pro.
If you wanted to reset it you basically would have to format the harddrive.
You can get a older version of WinXP which is still supported by microsoft or either that you can format it and sell it without a operating system.
Or you can add/remove items you installed and remove personal info delete pretty items much within windows itself.
