Question about IBM ThinkPad T40 2373 Notebook
I have problem with My ThinkPad T40 2373 - 72A, error 0189 appear when it's start to boot. The only solution that I find so far is replace the systemboard. But I wonder if there any other solution of this problem.
This worked for me on a R40 with the 0189 issue.
When the message pops up, hit escape to continue.
1. Download the IBM Hardware Maintenance Disk and create a floppy. The filename for version 1.75 is i7tm23us.exe. I found it at ftp://ftp.software.ibm.com/pc/pccbbs/mobiles/i7tm23us.exe
2. If you do not have a floppy drive on your laptop, then use nero to create a bootable CD from the files and boot sector of the floppy disk.
3. Boot your laptop from the CD, then choose the Assign UUID option.
This should do the trick for you.
