WIN PRO 2000 RECOVERY DISK

Can you assist me with getting to the CD-ROM I burned with the Recovery disk?  I downloaded the program, but I don't know how to get my IBM to run it!

    So what are you trying to do with the recovery disk? Does your IBM also have a 3 1/2" floppy drive? Typically during the startup of the system (Before the Windows Loading Screen) you would press a predefined key (Usually F1-F12) to select the boot drive or device. In this case you would select to boot from the CD-ROM drive in order to boot from the CD-ROM acting as the boot disk.

BEFORE YOU DOWNLOAD THE PROGRAM ONTO THE CD-ROM DID YOU FORMAT IT TO MAKE IT BOOTABLE, IF NOT THAN IT WILL NOT WORK, YOU COPIED THE PROGRAM, THE COMPUTER SEES THE PROGRAM, BUT IT CANNOT DO ANYTHING UNLESS THE COMMAND ARE THERE TO TELL IT WHAT TO DO.

YOU CAN TRY ACCESSING THE PROGRAM FROM THE CD-ROM, WHILE YOU ARE IN THE PROGRAM FROM THE CD YOU CAN TRY AND TYPE SETUP, RUN,

Risk of losing data by re-booting CD-ROM recovery disk


Copy off your data to another computer before recovering. A recovery usually restores to factory settings and loses all data.
You could boot to Ubuntu or Linux and copy your stuff that way, then when restored, copy it back.

My kids changed my password and now i have no idea how to get in it now


You may crack the password and login your computer again.

Windows Password Recovery is right what you need in your case. The password recovery tool is designed to reset Windows login password once you accidentally forgot it or have no access to your system including Windows 7, Vista, XP etc. By burning a bootable CD, you can enter almost any computer with Windows administrator login password protected within a few seconds. Here are the step by step tutorial, pretty easy, I am sure you can handle it!

Step 1: Download Windows Password Recovery and install it on another computer.
Step 2: Prepare a blank CD/USB and run the software and use it to burn the ISO file to it.
Step 3: Put it into the CD-ROm and restart your locked computer. Change the BIOS setting of your locked computer to make it boot from the CD-ROM or USB drive. Note: start computer and press F2 or Delete to enter BISO setup
Step 4: Boot your locked computer from the created disk and remove your forgotten password. GOOD LUCK!

I forgot the pssword of my laptop


Need a external CD ROM...
1. Download and burn Ophcrack (freeware).
2. Burn ISO file to a disk.
3. Attach external CD ROM to S10 computer
4. Load the disk with the ISO file in the external CD ROM
5. Turn the S10 on and tap F12 a few times on the Lenovo Screen.
6. Select Boot using CD/DVD ROM
7. Wait for the program to completely load until it shows you a picture with your password on it.c57d3af.jpg

If this solution does not work,
1. Turn off your computer (no flashing lights)
2. Press the Lenovo Care Button (aka One Key Recovery, button with an upside down arrow on it)
3. Select System Recovery.
4. Recovery from factory default settings.

I HAVE A IBM THINKPAD T 30


Thinkpad T30 are usually supplied with the following optical drives, CD ROM, CD R/W, and Combo DVD ROM with CD R/W.
You most likely have the Combo drive, therefore you can play DVD and CD disks plus burning music and data onto CD-R and CD+R discs.
You need CD burning software such as Roxio Easy CD Creator or Nero. Both these programs are excellent and easy to use.

Restore factory settings


what i would do is go into dos. If you cant get into dos find a windows 98 setup disk 3.5" this will have the dos files that will allow the computer to reconize a generic cd rom. This should allow you to get your recovery disk working. Your software problem could of created a firmware problem also. Not reconizing the cd rom. This solution will provide the basics to get your cd rom loading the recovery disk for you. If you have questions or more problems feel free to contact me and i will take you through it step by step
