Question about IBM ThinkPad 600E 2645 Notebook
Sounds more like a hard drive issue, although it could be either or both.
Tap either F8, F, F10, F12 or Del when you boot up. You have to do it right on the bootup. This will let you enter the BIOS/Advanced Settings.
See if you can Start Windows in Safe Mode from there. When you get to the Desktop, in Safe Mode, you might be able to do a System Restore back to a time before you started experiencing problems, although you will lose any configuration settings you made after that point.
Also if you could do a Repair Windows with a system disk, that would be wise.
The reason I mentioned so many possibilities for buttons to enter the BIOS is because is varies from machine to machine. It usually says which button it is at the bottom of the screen for a very short time when booting up.
Try that and let me know how you get on..
ps The fact that you can see your RAM size is a good sign, with regards to the actual hardware. I think the worst case scenario is probably having to reinstall your operating system from scratch.. and then the hassle of finding and installing the hardware drivers so that the new operating system can 'recognise' the motherboard, and the network cards, sound etc
