T23 Won't Startup

My IBM ThinkPad T23 has a linux and windows partition. I use the XP partition, and am not interested in saving the Linux partition. For the past year or 2 I constantly have "memory dump" shutdowns. While in Excel, she shut down on me, and now, nothing happens when I try to boot her up. When I power on, there are 3 short beeps, pause, 3 short beeps, pause and a single beep. This indicates there is a problem with the DIMM and the system board. I know what DIMM is, but don't know what kind of DIMM I have. Before I open her up, I want to know if it's worth trying to figure out, or should I just start saving for a new computer? Thanks for any advice you can offer.

Sounds like defective RAM or RAM slot to me. How much memory do you have on your T23? It might be possible to remove the bad memory or switch the memory(if it's good) to the working memory slot (there are two in T23).

I would say it's not a bad problem and most likely you will not need to start saving for a new laptop. Perhaps only a new memory or simply switching the memory to the other slot will do.

Laptop turns on, goes to first screen which reads IBM TRHINKPAD. THEN FLASHES OFF TO NEXT SCREEN WHICH READS THE WINDOWS XP LOGO then it goes black and doesnt come back on


Your installation of Windows is most probably corrupted. Try pressing and holding the F8 button on your keyboard when the 'IBM THINKPAD" screen disappears. That should bring you to a Windows menu where you can select various modes. Select Safe Mode and press enter. If it boots, then you know that something's wrong with Windows and not the notebook itself. What have you installed prior to this problem? Maybe you should try uninstalling it while in safe mode, and then try starting up Windows normally again.

If your windows doesn't start anyway, you should get some live OS (OS that can boot from CD) like Ubuntu or Puppy Linux, so you can save the data from C: partition (burn it or copy it elsewhere) and then reinstall your copy of Windows XP.

How to Install both XP and Linux?


Hi,
I would install XP 1st then Open suse or Ubuntu. When you install either of these linux OS's ensure you install to another partition other than the windows one. Both installation routines will allow you to format the drive to the linux ext2 format and automatically install a boot manager (usually GRUB) which will allow you to select the OS you wish to boot.

Dual Booting


possibly by first creating a new partition large enough for Linux OS, but does not solve your problem...try getting a VISTA startup disc from another pc (floppies if you have the drive) and startup from these.
