Reseat hard drive


The hard drive can be removed and reconnected (reseating) by removing the screw/s on the bottom of the laptop. The hard drive compartment will have disk symbol. Open the laptop lid slightly before you slide out the hard drive. Insert the hard drive back into the laptop so it makes proper connection.replace the screw/s.
Boot up the laptop, if it does not boot up then power off and power up and press F1 to go into IBM BIOS setup - check to see if the hard disk is detected. If not then the hard disk is faulty and needs to be replaced then Windows needs to be installed on the new hard disk to get the laptop operating again.

My ibm thinkpad t43 displayed a message "hard error D0014" on a small blue screen. when i shut it down by pressing the power button for a few seconds, it restarted. but the programs won't work.


This could be a problem, not sure if its a software related or if the hard drive is bad. If you can find a windows xp cd. Try and wipe out the hard drive and install windows xp on it. If it goes thru then you'll just need the drivers. If it errors out on you then you know its a problem with the hard drive and you'll need to replace it. If you get windows xp installed on it, let me know and I'll help you with the drivers.

Trying to upgrade H/D on IBM T43 laptop, get 2010 error on


Error code 2010 is definitely hard drive problem.

Did you get the firmware from the site below?
Link to hardware maintenance manual for reference:
http://download.lenovo.com/ibmdl/pub/pc/pccbbs/mobiles_pdf/39t2393.pdf
Here's the fix straight from the maintenance manual:
If in the primary bay the customer is using a non-IBM or non-Lenovo hard disk drive (HDD), or an old generation IBM HDD which is not supported by this system, with the risk in mind, the customer can still use it by pressing ESC. If in the primary drive bay the customer is using a supported IBM/Lenovo HDD with an old firmware, the customer needs to update its firmware to the latest. The latest version is available at http://www.lenovo.com/think/ support
