Go into bios and change the order of boot devices.
first one should be cd, then ide, then floppy.

Formatting ibmthinkpad 2647


Hi there,
Power on, when you see the IBM logo, press F12 once to load the boot menu options, provided that you already have an Operating System CD / DVD in the drive, which should allow you to format your HDD.

IBM Thinkpad 2647 will not power on , i plug it in to charge and orange light flashes 5 times then stays solid orange . I can leave it plugged in for days and will not change , it will also not turn on...


This is a tricky problem, you need to troubleshoot this bit by bit - first take the memory out one stick at a time and try to turn it on each time, then try the hard drive. If it boots further with one of these things out then you know thats the problem. If it still doesnt boot after trying these components then you need a repair as it will be an onboard component.
My immediate guess would be the onboard power supply unit, unless your charger is broken and you can test with another charger to rule that out too.

Evey time I try to boot my ibm thinkpad type 2647 nothing happens and the fan keeps going from high to low any ideas?


Whe you switch on the laptop please go to Bios and check the hard disc is dictacted or not. Other wise when you switch on the computer please press F11 button 4 to 5 times and select the boot option from the hard disc. If it not working need to show service center.

ThinkPad T20 2647 PC Notebook: The lap top will not boot. It's a thinkpad T20...


Hi, During the boot at the THINKPAD SCREEN press the Thinkvantage key ( Blue button ) it will launch rescue and recovery and allow you to reboot factory. This only works if you did not corrupted/deleted the rescue and recovery hidden partition on the HDD. Otherwise you will need the rescue and recovery CD to proceed. IBM/Lenovo support should be able to provide you the CD. Might be a defective hdd aswell, in this case to make sure you can run a DFT test, www.google.com -> Look up for " Test DFT " ( Drive fitness tool from hitachi, will make an hardware diag if hdd failure - error code 0x00 = everything fine, other code = Issue - You can look up for accurate code explanation on hitachi website ) thanks and have a nice day J-

IBM T20,inaccessible boot device


The Innaccessable Boot Device message means one of 2 things:

1: your hard drive has died - not much here, must replace drive.

2: The master boot record has become corrupt. Without any media, this will be hard to fix. You will need to boot to the Windows CD and either run the recovery console or perform a windows repair to fix this issue.

How to get into safemode with ibm t26 thinkpad


To get into safemode on a windows operating system then you must press F8 at startup. Keep tapping the F8 key and you should get a menu that says Start windows in safe mode and some other options. Choose safe mode and your there.

Sometimes a computer may have a boot menu set to F8 and you will be asked to load from the CD drive or hard driver. If thats the case then select the hard drive and then tap F8 again until the menu at the top appears.

Stuck at IBM Thinkpad Splash Screen


Sound like a memory chip has failed. Try removing the memory, I believe these have on board, but not sure. If it doesn't have on board, you will need at least one chip in. If the problem is still there, try removing the CD drive, occasionally they can cause a no start. If it's not the memory or the CD drive, then try a bios flash. You will need to create a bootable disc from IBM's support site using a different machine (obviously).
If the bios flash doesn't fix it, them the problem will lie with the motherboard.

Replaced Hard Drive


you may need to boot from install cd, and then configure that drive with F2 prompt at log in screen. Of course, with IBM, there's always a chance of having some arcane approach, but you might get lucky.
