Question about IBM ThinkPad T30 2366 Notebook

Open Question

T30 switches off unexpectedly and won't boot

My trusty T30 begins to load up, and after I type in my IBM security password, I get the ok prompt and the TP immediately shuts down as if all the power has been removed. I have tried it without the HD in and the same problem occurs. I have even removed and reseated the RAM and still no success. Regardless of what I do, the TP always behaves in exactly the same way, and at the same point while booting up.

Please can anyone help?

You might have some 3 party programs running in the background that's crashing your system. Let's try clean booting the system to remove 3rd party software and see if that clears up the problem. In safe mode: Follow the steps below to place your computer in "clean boot" · Click the Start orb on your Desktop · Type msconfig in the Start Search box, and then press ENTER. If you are prompted for an administrator password or for a confirmation, type the password, or click Continue. · On the General tab, click Selective Startup. · Under Selective Startup, click to clear the Load Startup Items check box. · Click the Services tab, click to select the Hide All Microsoft Services check box, and then click Disable All. · Click OK. When you are prompted, click Restart. Did you get the same error message? If this does resolve the issue, then see the following Microsoft Article on "Clean boot" and the section "How to determine what is causing the problem" to determine which program or service maybe causing the issue. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/331796 How to set your computer back, to boot normal: · Click the Start orb on your Desktop · In the Start Search box. Type msconfig, and then press ENTER. If you are prompted for an administrator password or for a confirmation, type the password, or click Continue. Click the General tab. · Click Normal Startup - load all device drivers and services, and then click OK. · When you are prompted, click Restart to restart the computer.

IBM Thinkpad T30 2366 won't boot after the IBM Thinkpad screen


you can go to the BIOS setting? if you can,look for "Boot Device Priority" or something like that,it's usually placed on Advanced settings. Set the first boot device as your harddisk,save the settings and restart your computer
Please let me know if it's working or not

Hi , I have an error on my IBM Thinkpad(type 2647), code 0195, securety hardware tamper detected. I know there is several times used the wrong password. It's about an old computer, from wich I don't have...


security HARDWARE tampering?! Nobody locks down a computer using hardware unless they have a damn good reason (software lockdowns are more common); its very expensive to purchase additional security hardware. If you don't know what you're doing, call IBM. They'll guide you through it. If it says hardware tampering, i can't help you because that may mean you have a non-standard setup.

T42 gets message"NTLDR" not available. Tried to


Don't try loading windows with out fixing the NTLDR...Try this simple steps in recovery console,

  • Insert the Windows XP CD-ROM into the CD drive, and then restart the computer.
  • Click to select any options that are required to start the computer from the CD drive if you are prompted.
  • When the "Welcome to Setup" screen appears, press R to start the Recovery Console.
  • Press 1 (One) to select windows XP and then hit enter.
  • When you are prompted, type the Administrator password. If the administrator password is blank, just press ENTER.
  • At the command prompt, start typing

COPY D:\i386\ntldr C:\ (Considering that D is your CD Rom Drive)
COPY D:\i386\ntdetect C:\ (a file that may also be missing)


  • Then rebuild the boot configuration boot.ini file by
    Attrib -H -R -S C:\boot.ini (if not found skip the next line)
    DEL C:\boot.ini
    BootCfg /Rebuild

    Note:

    Do not use the repair option in the recovery console.

    Or, if you can get into XP, even safe mode, you can arrange to bypass the
    password by the following registry change:

    Click on Start then click run and type Regedit. Navigate to the key mentioned below,
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion\Setup\RecoveryConsole
    Set the DWORD Security Level value to 1

Hope this helps

I want ot reset BIOS password for IBM T30 model laptop as i forgotten it


To reset the BIOS read the information from this link.

In case of your IBM laptop the easiest method would be using software from Hiren's Boot CD as it's pretty hard to open it up and reach for the CMOS battery or the jumper.

IBM T30 won't boot with LCD, but will boot OK with external eonitor


It means computer developed oxide on some contact, and this is causing a short that forces unit to shut down, laptop must be taken apart, dried properly, and eventually cleaned with circuit cleaning solution.
If problem stops when you turn to external display, then probably it is water or oxide in LCD ribbon cable connectors.
