T23 Startup problems

Hi- I've got a Thinkpad T23 running XP. Yesterday, the computer hung up while starting up. It didn't go past the wallpaper I normally have on the screen. I restarted in SAFE mode, and... 1. It asked me if I wanted to log on via my account 2. Got me to the desktop, showing all files that were on it. 3. I deleted the last program I was working with, Belkin Wireless Network Utility. 4. I got my must-have files on to a flash drive. However, I've still got the same problem starting up normally. Any sage suggestions?

    Is it possible that for some reason my computer needed a VERY long time to start up? (10 minutes) While working on typing in the request to you guys, my computer was just sitting there with that wallpaper shot, and then the normal desktop items started coming on.

    I did de-install the wireless utility while in safe mode, so maybe that helped.

    But not it's re-started, the wireless is working.

    Anything else preventative to consider for the future?

If you tried to install the belkin usb wireless adapter, what might be happening is that the device is searching for the driver and stopping your desktop from loading, so remove the usb dongle and do a system restore to the day before your problem if necassary. Make sure that you install the belkin software first then connect the adapter whe prompted as sometimes the driver can be a bit tricky to install.

    if the last had no change on your system, press F8 continually when the system is booting to get into safe mode again, but this time select 'last known good configuration'

    it may be you have too many programmes running on start up and thats why it's taking an age to get to your desktop, click Start>run, then type msconfig and hit enter.

    a window will show, click the start up tab and untick any programmes that you have installed that do not ned to start up straight away, but remember anti virus, wireless utilities and and security software shoul always be allowed to start up straight away, things like office and adobe speedstart etc do not.

    you can also download this free excellent programme and clear any old registry files up that can also cause a slow system, download and install ccleaner, if you havent got it, no spyware and free updates, click analyse and then clean, don't worry it wont delete any important registry files like some programmes do

Why Thinkpad T23 2647 4MP can't conect net after installed windows XP?


I do not use an automatic driver detection program, because they have a tendency to install the wrong drivers.

I look in Device Manager, and use the driver that matches THAT device, the O/S used, and is the newest version, (Date), with all the bugs worked out from an older version.

For your laptop that would be;

Ethernet Driver for Intel PRO/100 VE LAN that is the 49675 version, and has the date of November 8, 2002,

IBM Thinkpad T23 will not power off


Hello,

It sounds like a new program is preventing normal shutdown. Typically, programs that do that are spyware. I would start by downloading Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware here: http://www.malwarebytes.org/

Install and run the program and remove the problems it finds. If that doesn't fix your shutdown problem, you can try System Restore. Let me know which operating system you have (XP or Vista) and I can give you instructions about that.

As for losing your hard drive on power off, that is a VERY rare occurrence. I have fixed many thousands of computers and I have only seen that a couple of times. I do it maybe four or five times a day to various systems with no problems. Obviously it's not an ideal way to turn things off, but temporarily its not a big deal.
