Question about IBM ThinkPad T23 2647 Notebook
Hi all, I purchased a used thinkpad t23 2647, it crashed hard would not restart widows. so i tried using my xp upgrade disk to fix it. After reformating hard drive, I can not get it to take a fresh new install of windows xp. I even tried a full install, I get to the same point everytime were it is setting up windows with 35 minutes to go, and it locks up..
Does anyone have any ideas???
Many lockups are caused by incorrect (wrong kind or too much) or faulty memory modules. If you are comfortable doing so, open the memory door on the bottom (most likely) of the PC after first unplugging the PC and removing the main battery. Verify, if you can, that the memory is correct for PC. If the modules don't specifically say what type and speed they are, do a search on any numbers on labels. Go to www.crucial.com and use the memory finder on the left side of the page. If the memory you have is the correct type, try the following: If there are two modules, remove one, then try your XP install again. If it crashes, reinstall the removed module, and remove the other one. If either XP install works, the removed module is faulty. Replace it. If it still crashes, try to borrow some proper memory from someone. If all of this still doesn't work, it could be the hard drive and NOT the memory. In this case, about the only thing you can do is borrow a copy of a bootable CD-ROM based program that can check your hard drive. Many hard drive manufacturers have something like this.
