A Google search for this error code suggests that this may (or may not) be a disk problem. You should attempt to recover your data files (photos, documents, videos) if they are not backed up somewhere else.
A competent tech should be able to boot from a Linux-based recovery CD or DVD and recover your files. A slightly harder way is to pull out the drive and recover the files using another computer running Windows or Linux.
The machine is certainly repairable. If there is a service contract or warranty, have the supplier do the repair AFTER you have secured any files you wish to keep. The manufacturer will almost certainly erase everything in the repair process.
Only the paid service makes calls it is not wise to publish your number on the open net. Aside from that facebook had not much to do with the Windows crash. Although you had little choice after it locked up to do a hard shut down, you always take the chance of corrupting your drive. If you have one place the Windows factory CD into the tray and choice the option for Repair Windows. If not it should have the restore within the hard drive. To access this feature reboot the pc when u see the IBM splash screen "may say Thinkpad" This would be the 1st thing that pops up when u hit the power button. When u see this tap the F11 key on your keyboard. Follow the directions and again you would want to do the repair. This will replace the missing files Windows is looking for.

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.

Are you opening a an excel file and excel crashes or are you opening up excel by itself and it crashes?
If your opening a file then it's most likely corrupted. If it's just excel that is crashing then you might have some files that got damaged during the power outtage. To fix that problem close all your applications, go to my computer, right click on C drive, properties, tool, error checking, check now, click both options and click ok. It might ask you to reboot. If excel doesnt' work after that you will have to reload MS office. Your file system will be fixed though.
