Hi, May be the harddisk is not recognizing. Restart your laptop and go for BIOS and check whether the harddisk is recognized.

How do i shut down my think pad? it will not cut off


In your case,

the most simplest way to shut down your laptop is to override your processing by simply holding down the shutdown button until your computer turns off (do this when all your work is saved and the "Windows is shutting down" mode is on your screen).

This idea is not recommended but will always work.




Hope I helped

How to enter into BIOS when trackpoint was broken.


Hi there.
Its something to do with the trackpoint, possibly the cable has become loose.
* If an emergency power down is made by switching the system off during or while an application is open, then immediately switching the system on creates a 8611 error.
* Repeatedly turning power off and back on without properly shutting down or allowing the system to shut itself down.

Solution
Wait at least 6 seconds or longer after shutting down the system or before restarting to correct the 8611 error.
See if that gets rid of the error, if not it could be a loose cable to the trackpoint.

Good luck

Turns off autometically


How far does it get on the boot process? Does it open the operating system completely before shutting down? Do you get any error messages, and does it go to a black screen stating Windos wasn't shut down properly? Answer these and I'll have a better idea of what's going on.

IBM Thinkpad A31 won't power on


Start by upgrading the bios for the motherboard. You can find the download at IBM's support site. Make sure to create at bootable disc with another machine, since your machine isn't functioning properly. This should fix the chipset issue and recognize the processor properly. Then reinstall XP and download any drivers, ie... sound, video, etc.., from IBM's site. This should get the machine working properly. If problems persist after you do this let me know and we'll go from there. Also, don't install service pack three, it's been known to create issues, only install service pack two.
