IBM thinkpad T23 2647 install help

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???

    It wasnt the memory but you definatly put me on the right track. the problem ended up being the pro /100 sp mobile combo adapter. xp couldnt recognize it and it was locking up. pulled the card and it installed no problem. thank you for the clues.

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.

My ibm thinkpad t23 will not go pass blue windowxp screen need help


There are many possible reasons for a blue screen at windows xp.the most likely ones are:damaged windows instalation - in which case you will need to reinstall windows.damaged physical drive - in which case you would need to get a new hard drivethe OS cannot access memory - could be RAM memory or HDD.
I'm guessing you would just need to re-install the windows. You are most likely to lose all data.

Have an older T23 IBM Thinkpad. Was running Malwarebyts which I just loaded on the system due to a problem at work and wonted to make sure i was ok at home. System ran for aprox 32 min and apeard to lock...


This is a possibility, the T23 is a very old laptop.
Normal 0 Check the BIOS to see if the hard disk is detected, if not open then re-seat the hard drive.
If the BIOS does not detect this hard drive, then the hard drive is probably faulty.

If it was me, I would not waste my time and money trying to get a new hard drive for this ThinkPad.
Disk drive manufacturers do not make small capacity hard drive anymore and the current range of hard drives won't work in your ThinkPad because the BIOS cannot support these hard drives.

My IBM Thinkpad T23 needs a set up disc. I purchased it used so do not have one. Help


Use a Windows installation CD, and you will need the product installation code. This code is printed on the Windows label on the bottom of the laptop. Make sure the Windows CD matches the Windows version that is printed on the label.
