    With most laptops, it is very easy to replace the physical hard drive. The tricky part comes when you want to keep all of the data that was on the old one. Are you asking how to do it?

    Is this a laptop or desktop PC.

The hard drive for your machine is located on the left-front side. There is one allen type screw holding the drive in. (located on the right side of the drive toward the front of the case.) Remove the screw and open the panel and pull the drive out. Slide the new one in, and install your new system software. Here is a link that provides detailed information with pictures regarding your laptop (as well as other thinkpad models) Page 76 of the little online manual detail your HD removal.

It's easy to change out. But you will have to reinstall the OS.

Good Luck.

Probably the display driver is messed up. Best option is to reinstall the operating system.

An alternative is to have a Linux-savvy friend try to boot it up
with a Linux-live rescue CD to see if that fixes the display problem and maybe to salvage your personal data from the hard drive.

u will have to go to your setup screen and reorder your boot screen so your cd rom will boot first so you can install windows 98, but if your cd rom isn't working you need to go to your device manager and look for your cd rom and install the driver

UPGRADING


That unit it about 10 years old.
Unfortunately, you cannot upgrade the CPU (processor)

The RAM is a standard 100MHz non-parity SDRAM SODIMM. The 2645 can use 128MB DIMMS for 160MB maximum. It has 32MB internal and two slots.

The hard drive size is limited by the BIOS. Any standard 2.5" hard drive should work, but may show as limited size, maybe 20GB.

Get a PCMCIA modem.

If you found a docking station for this unit, you'd be in better shape. Like I said, it's 10 years old. It won't be easy.

How to get into the Dos prompt at reboot for the IBM ThinkPad 2645?


Vince,
First of all, What operating system do you have on this machine?
If it's Win98, you can get DOS.
If it's WinXP, you will have to make a bootable CD to get into the DOS prompt.
Check out this link :
http://www.bootdisk.com/bootdisk.htm

You can also get into the setup from CD, by changing the boot sequence from BIOS. (If the installation CD that you have is a bootable CD)

Hope this helps.

Thanks & Good luck!
