Bad connection from your hard drive to the laptops motherboard. ftp://ftp.software.ibm.com/pc/pccbbs/mobiles_pdf/62p9631.pdf page 63 tells you how to remove the hard drive - I would take it out, clean the connections with rubbing alchohol, and FIRMLY put it back and see if it will come up then.

The Thinkpad T23 is old, and would not worth fixing. Save your money on a new one.
The problem with your laptop is that the hard disk or the disk controller has failed and therefore cannot find the operating system on the hard disk. The error message states that it can't see the operating system that is on the hard disk.
If the hard disk is the only thing that has failed then you can buy a new hard disk and install Windows operating system on it to get a working laptop again. You will also most likely need to download the device drivers (ie. video, audio, modem, LAN adapter etc.) from IBM to install after the Windows installation.
Try to borrow a 2.5" drive or get a cheap one from a computer market and fit it to your laptop to see if the BIOS can detect the hard drive. If it works then outlay some money to buy a decent size hard drive, no point wasting money if the laptop is faulty.

You have identified the fault is the video card, I am in agreement. The fault is on the motherboard and a replacement motherboard is the only fix. This may not be a cost effective solution, I would recommend you put your money towards a new laptop.
