1st go to MY COMPUTER, RH CLICK-PROPERTIES,HARDWARE TAB, DEVICE MANAGER,NETWORK DEVICES. CLICK ON THE + TO OPEN THE INSTALLED
NETWORK CARDS. YOU SHOULD MOST LIKELY HAVE 2 LISTINGS 1- YOUR ETHERNET PORT
2-YOUR WIFI CARD. THERE SHOULD NOT BE AN EXCLAMATION POINT OR A QUESTION MARK, EITHER INDICATING A PROBLEM. IF YOU DO HAVE EITHER LOOK AT THE DRIVERS 1ST AND THE ACTUAL HARDWARE 2ND. IF BY CHANCE YOU DONT SEE YOUR WIFI CARD
THEN TRY REMOVING IT AND REINSTALLING IT. TURN ON YOU COMPUTER AND SEE IF
XP RECONIZES IT "NEW HARDWARE FOUND". YOU HAVE TO SUPPLY A DRIVER FOR IT AS
WELL. GOOD LUCK

IBM is a different beast all together. You need the driverse if you can't find it on the IBM website try going to the Intell website and looking up the card its self.

Operating system not found


I would suggest you may have a hard drive error. A replacement drive will need the OS to be installed. you may be able to recover your old drive with a USB harddrive adapter and lead.

Operating system not found


The error PXE-E61: Media test failure usually means the hard disk has failed or the hard disk needs re-seating or the disk controller is faulty. First - re-seat the hard disk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot and go into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it doesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.
Then the hard drive needs to be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer or laptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioning computer/laptop again.

Have an older T23 IBM Thinkpad. Was running Malwarebyts which I just loaded on the system due to a problem at work and wonted to make sure i was ok at home. System ran for aprox 32 min and apeard to lock...


This is a possibility, the T23 is a very old laptop.
Normal 0 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.

My IBM Think Pad T30 showin working on AC with out powering..


If it's not finding the operating system, and you'va ran the recovery cd, then the problem is going to be that the hard drive has failed and will need replaced. In order to double check and make sure it's the hard drive, run the recovery or operating system disc, and reformat the hard drive. If the hard drive will not format, then it's bad.

My ibm wont start up??????


The problem is going to be with either the operating system or the hard drive, and you will need an operating system disc in order to solve this problem. After acquiring an operating system disc you can try an operating system repair. If the repair doesn't take, then try to reformat the drive (NTFS) and install a fresh version of the operating system. If you have any problems during or after the format and fresh install, then the hard drive has failed and needs replaced. A hard drive failure is the most common with this type of problem, but occasionally the operating system will glitch and cause it. Either way you will need an operating system disc if you plan on fixing this yourself.

Bad connection from your hard drive to the laptops motherboard. ftp://ftp.software.ibm.com/pc/pccbbs/mobiles_pdf/62p9631.pdf page 63 tells you how to remove the hard drive - I would take it out, clean the connections with rubbing alchohol, and FIRMLY put it back and see if it will come up then.

This issue showed that the harddrive is not found. Try to fixed hardware connecting from harddrive and the board.
did you see hard drive detected in the bios at start? if your are sure that the connection cable is firmly fixed and the hard drive still not detected by the bios. so there is a problem with your harddrive. you should/may replace that.On the other hand if in case your hard drive is detected and still thesame problem encountered. then, you should reinstall your operating system by inserting the original operating system recovery/ windows bootable installation disc to refresh the state of your system.

any problem srising this solution please notify me.
