Question about IBM (08K3261) for ThinkPad A20P, A20M, A21P, A22P Graphic Card

1 Answer

IBM Thinkpad A20m model 2628

Sorry, that was Windows 2000 Professional that will not load or boot up.  The blue screen that comes up when Windows 2000 is attempting to load says that I need to check the hard drive and hard drive controllers for corruption.  The STOP error tells me to run CHKDSK/F to check the hard drive and then restart.  I cannot get past this screen!  I was online when the computer shut down 3 days ago and did this.  I had just downloaded a word document from my professor, and saved it.  I do not have a boot disk for WINDOWS 2000 Professional, I bought the remanufactured laptop on ebay 1.5 years ago.  Haven't had any problems with it, and it does have a Belkin wireless card.  Any ideas?  Thanks!

You can download the software known as Active boot disk. With this you can create a bootable cd to run a chkdsk with the f and r command to fix and recover errors on disk. you can also explore your comp and copy files to an external disk. If after the system boots normally after chkdsk you might have a problem with your HDD get it replaced before it crashes again

I need to reload Windows 2000 Pro on a corupt IBM Thinkpad.


Assuming you have no data to lose,,,, you could always try to download copy of Windows 2000 Professional and burn it to a CD. Before you do this,,, you have to make sure you have a sticker somwhere on your laptop with your original product key. If you do decide to download Windows 2000 Professional,,, make sure its an OEM copy,,, and of course there is no guarantee that it will be a full copy, or a copy without virus's in it. DO NOT try to download Windows 2000 Professional if you dont have the original product key, as it is illegal. Also,,, do not try and find a product key online,,, that is also illegal. I have to be perfectly clear that the only legal way to download somethign like Windows 2000 Professional is if u have the original product code or key. You can than use this newly burned copy to format and reinstall windows, and than from IBM's web site u can download all the drivers needed for your model
