My IBM G40

Last week there were a couple of times when the screen started to have little squares on it. Now when I try to boot up my pc it will either bring up my sign allowing me to sign on and then show the little squares, or simply beep at me in mutiple forms about three second apart.

This is the IBM symbol for "it's not working."
You are not booting correctly and the computer is telling you so.

I'm thinking you could go into setup and restore the default (I can't remember right now how to get into the CMOS setup, but it might be pressing F2 or F12 or Del.
If you can get there and you have the choice of setting the default configuration, do that.

Otherwise you're looking at a hardware problem.

IBM G40 won't reboot


Unfortunately only few people know your problems solution but I'm happy that i can help you.

Its simply a problem of setting HDD ( Hard Disk Drive ) type which can be changed using BIOS setup. I hope your laptop must have SATA but if its not working on current settings then please change it to another options available.

Surely, your system will get booted after that and furthermore you can re-install your windows again...

Rate this solution if it was helpful to you.
