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.

With Regards,
Shyny

Hi there.
If the line appear from the moment you switch on your Laptop then your screen has gone faulty and will need to be replaced. Other option would be to use external screen.

ThinkPad G40 is locked up


Oops, straight from the manual for your laptop...

Problem: I forgot my password.
Solution: If you forgot your power-on password, you must take your computer to an IBM reseller or marketing representative to have the password canceled. If you forgot your hard disk password, IBM will not reset your password or recover data from the hard disk. You must take your computer to an IBM reseller or an IBM marketing representative to have the hard disk drive
replaced. Proof of purchase is required, and a fee will be charged for parts and service. If you forgot your supervisor password, IBM will not reset your password. You must take your computer to an IBM reseller or IBM marketing representative to have the system board replaced. Proof of purchase is required, and a fee will be charged for parts and service.

Sorry to see that... Good luck.
