I would check all the cable and power cord connections to start and check that nothing was knocked loose when you were inside the computer. If applicable make sure the graphics card is seated in its slot. I would also try a different monitor, maybe a CRT. This may allow you to get into the BIOS. There are usually some changes that can made in there that might solve the problem. Is there a Menu button on the LCD? There might be something in there that would help.

I have an IBM net vista with a blue screen memory dump thing going on i dont have os disk and i need the files from this computer imscared and dont know what to do it wont even load my desktop just keeps...


If you have important files on the drive I would suggest removing the drive from the system, placing the drive in an external inclosure (or you could hook it up direct to another desktop as a slave drive) then backup your personal documents.

After confirming that all the documents have been saved I would then format and reinstall the operating system and programs and finally copy all the old files back onto the drive.

Let me know if you have any questions or need specifics.

Unfortunately when you format a hard drive it deletes anything on it so if you did this after putting the documents onto it they are now gone.

Error Code 2000-0146


I know this is not what you will want to hear, but according to the Dell Support site, error code 2000-0146 indicates: DST Log contains previous error(s). This means that the drive is failing and needs to be replaced. ASAP is best. I would suggest that you backup anything on the current drive that want to move to the new drive. If the computer is under warranty, contact Dell Support and they should ship you a new drive. If there is no warranty remaining, you will need to purchase a similar type of drive. Once you have the new drive, install it and then reinstall your software. It should go more quickly is you can use the recovery CDs that were shipped with the computer originally.

Good luck, and please let me know how it turns out for you.

I have an IBM thinkpad, an old one from work, nad it has another user name and password that I do not know. Id like to format the hard drive and install Vista on this, currently it is W2000 pro. Would you...


You don't need to get a command prompt to format the hard drive.
Just boot up with the CD as the first boot device. Press F12 just after you switch on the laptop, then select the CD as the temporary boot device, insert the Windows XP install CD in the drive.
When the install process starts and displays the partitions, delete the existing partitions, then create a new partition, and then do a full NTFS format, not a quick format.
Now ou are on your way for a new Windows install.

Access IBM Button does nothing-- need it to start my comp up


Hi,
The Access IBM button is F11. This lets you boot the recovery partition. It is possible the previous owner removed the recovery partition to regain the hard disk space it uses.

If the recovery partition is gone, you can order the recovery disks from IBM/Lenovo.

Also, make sure you have the BIOS boot sequence in the correct order.. the primary boot device should be the cd-rom for installing the Vista disk. It is usually F8 on startup to load the BIOS.
Make sure the Vista disk is in the drive when you startup the install.

Here's a link to all the Thinkpad R50e drivers you'll need to get it fully working in Vista:
http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/MIGR-55042.html

If you have just formatted, have you let the Vista disk finish the installation? Just a thought..

Good Luck!

How to reformat R52 ibm thinkpad


Your laptop should have come with a recovery disk, you will need to boot to that disk following the onscreen steps for formatting and restoring the operating system files. Furthermore, if your system did not come with a recovery disk, or you have a Windows XP/Vista disk you can boot to that instead.

Windows XP Install:

After the installation system boots, the setup prompt will prompt you for searching the system for previously installed versions of Windows; bypass the recovery option after the search is complete. The setup will then display a list of Hard Drives to install Windows; follow the key for deleting the partition (press "D" to delete). Once the partition has been deleted highlight the "free hard drive space" and press "Enter" then you will be prompted to format the drive and install Windows. Moreover, you should right down the Windows Product Key off the sticker on the bottom of your laptop; you'll be asked for that key after the setup restarts your computer assuming you are using that license for that version of Windows.

Windows Vista Install:

When you boot to the Vista DVD you will be prompted to enter the product key as soon as the setup loads. Select the Hard Drive with the mouse, then left-click the format button on the right pane. Continue with the installation.

Vista recovery/hard drive


hi your hard drive is a 250gig when your reinstalling vista it will think that your pc needs to split the hard drives for recovery this is why its done that and because of that it will use a small part of the hard drive for its own mem use so you will lose the total size of the hard drive im running 1000gig and only getting 800 gig for my self this you cannot do anything about .
the only thing you can do is reinstall your vista program and when on the screen for formatting the hard drive it will say do you want to format the partitions in the box there will be a delet this partition you must delet all the partitions so there is only one left then you must reinstall vista on that one only this will get rid of all the other ones so you sould be left with just 1 hard drive when you start up vista this should put you back on to close to 235gig
hope this works for you
all the best thanks
