Question about IBM ThinkPad A31 Notebook
I have had this problem with mine and a few of my friends computers. they were dell. i couldnt get into safe mode or normal. so i got an external enclosure for the 2.5inch hard drive thats in them. so i would take out the hard drive and put it in the external enclosure and hook it up to another computer and save all the pictures and music and stuff like that on to my computer if i had space or another external hard drive i had. i always run a virus scan before i transfer anything. then i would format the hard drive a few times and reinstall windows and everything

You seem to be getting what is called, the blue screen of death. This blue screen with white text can be caused by many things and I will provide a link for you to read at the end of this post. After reading the reasons the blue screen of death is occurring their should be some links ( on the site i will link you to) to places that may help.
My suggestion would be to start up in safe mode.
To do that you hit f8 on the computers start up. Then log in to the administrators account and un-install any reciently insatlled programs. ( the ones you installed and after received the blue screen of death.
Restart your computer and log in the normal way. Update everything ( even your drivers). And of course restart.
Once you have your computer working fine wiht outh the blue screen of death then add the programs installed one by one till you find which one is causing it.
AFter that feel free to post back wiht your results and I will be glad to help.
That is the link to the website for the blue screen of death.
I hope this helped.
