SOURCE: my IBM t30 wont boot up

Use Knoppix to save your data if you need to, otherwise it sounds like you may need to reinstall the OS.

ftp://ftp.uni-kl.de/pub/linux/knoppix/KNOPPIX_V5.1.0CD-2006-12-30-DE.iso (to download Knoppix 5)

You could try using the recovery console, as previously mentioned as well. If you don't need to save data, just blow it all away and reinstall XP.
RESOLUTION loadTOCNode(1, 'resolution'); If it be the connector cable problem then replace the 40-wire cable with an 80-wire UDMA cable.
If it's a BIOS settings problem then load the 'Fail-Safe' default settings, and then reactivate the most frequently used options such as USB Support.

If it's a damaged file system case then:-
1.Insert the Windows XP CD-ROM into the CD-ROM drive, and then restart the computer.

Click to select any options that are required to start the computer from the CD-ROM drive if you are prompted.

2.When the "Welcome to Setup" screen appears, press R to start the Recovery Console.

3.If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot computer, select the installation that you must access from the Recovery Console.

4.When you are prompted, type the Administrator password. If the administrator password is blank, just press ENTER.

5.At the command prompt, type chkdsk /r , and then press ENTER.

6.At the command prompt, type exit , and then press ENTER to restart your computer.

This takes a bit longer, but the system should boot back into Windows.

SOURCE: can't boot and forgot bios password on ibm r50e

You need to remove, or short, the cmos battery. I'll be on the motherboard somewhere, possibly under the keyboard. Remove all screws, carefully, slide back any tabs on the keyboard and carefully remove. Only do this if your warranty has expired.

SOURCE: Sony Vaio VGN-NR498E recovery disk

Hello

Well, the recovery disks won't allow you to go to your present system. The recovery disks are designed to put everything back the way it was when you bought the computer, minus all your applications and data. If it's your data that you need then a reputable repair service like mine can slave your hard drive to another system and recover all your data (not applications), provided the hard drive has not electronically or mechanically malfunctioned. Again, a reputable repair person can tell you the status of the hard drive.

Thanks

Stop error on sony vaio vgn-nw235f


There are multiple possible reasons for your problem:
1. virus
2. hard-drive malfunctions
3. OS malfunctions
4. memory failure

Try to install an antivirus and do a deep scan. You should pay attention to a boot sector virus.

If this doesn't help, do a back-up of your data, format your hard disk and re-install a fresh OS.

If this doesn't help either, try changing the RAM memory.

If that doesn't help either, it means your hard disk's boot sector is damaged. There are solutions for this too, but I think there is a big chance you won't get to this point.

Run CHKDSK, if you see a message "The drive contains one or more unrecoverable problems", you need a new hard drive.

If you cant get on to Windows try a fresh install. If that fails buy a new HDD should fix it.

Hello, I was working with my sony vgn-ns110e for 5 hours and all of the sudden the laptop shutdown. It does not turn on anymore and there's no light either in the power, batt or hd.


1. Take the battery out of the laptop & try to turn on the laptop using power adapter only. If the computer turns on, then the battery is defective & needs to be replaced.
2. Make sure the power adapter is not defective. Test the output voltage of the power adapter using a voltmeter. Compare the voltmeter reading to the nominal value written on the adapter or the laptop.
3. If you have another processor which is compatible with your laptop's model, try swapping processors & test to see if the laptop will work.
4. The power button could be bad
.
5. The motherboard could be defective & needs to be replaced

Can't restore factory intallations and settings: Vaio VGN-FE880E


Are you doing DESTRUCTIVE recoveries or are you doing NONDESTRUCTIVE recoveries? Try another hard drive in the machine and recover to that. Nondestructive recoveries replace the operating system without destroying the personal data. Its possible the original problem is propagating over to the recovered systems. Do a destructive recovery. Understand any data not backed up will be destroyed. Possible the original problem was a trojan virus.
