T30 with XP hangs and freezes intermittenly during usage...

I tried reinstalling the operating system and installing a new hard drive...it didn't matter. I run service pack two it freezes at the end of it. I restart it freezes while loading the system services on startup, also when I open an application and even plug my usb mouse in...it just keeps happening. I ran chkdsk on all three hard drives I had and it found nothing...I'm a little frustrated so if it sounds like I'm babbling I'm sorry, help!!! I know you all that the memory slots are a common problem with these t30's but I have never had a problem getting into windows it's just having windows remain responsive is what the problem is...thanks in advance!

    Ok I removed one of the memory slots and so far it has worked without freezing, thanks. Hopefully it'll stay that way. :-)

There's a chance it's still the memory slots. You know, they are located directly beneath the hard drive.
Just a thought.
good luck

How do I erase my hard drive on a IBM T30 and reload the operating system and drivers.


Get an install disk for the operating system you wish to install (Make sure your computer is able to handle that operating system first), then put the disk in and boot to the disk. If your computer is not set up to boot to disk first then you will have to go into the BIOS, usually F2 of F12 on boot (whatever says press to enter setup), then change the boot settings from there.

Once you are inside the installer for that Operating System, it will give you an option to erase the hard drive you are wanting to install the operating system on, and restart new. Just so you are aware, this will reformat and ERASE EVERYTHING on that hard drive, so make sure that you have anything you want saved backed up somewhere else.

Once that is done, continue installing the operating system and then your hard drive will be erased, and the operating system will be reinstalled.

If you were just looking to erase a hard drive, then you can go to my computer, then right-click the hard drive you want to erase, then click format. THIS WILL ERASE EVERYTHING!

Hope this helps!

I use a HP Compaq nc6220 laptop, with Windows XP Pro, Version 2002, SP3, Intel Pentium M 1.73 GHz Processor & 1GB RAM. My computer just freezes/hangs after it boots. At times I am able to use it for...


When it hangs if you wait does it come back to life again?
I'd strongly reccomend installing a new operating system, maybe on a different drive to save your current one, and see if it still hangs on that.
I've had this issue with countless pc's, unfortunately I've always gone through my usual processes and fixed it without ever knowing (or caring) why it happened in the first place. But I'd start with a new installation of the operating system on a different hard drive as the first step in your diagnosis for sure. I'd also say its very likely that will fix it anyway, and if it doesnt then its a hardware issue of some kind (can be diagnosed further to find out exactly what)

On the mini 1000 - tried to install Windows xp (tried Vista and 2000 also) after a system crash. Since there is no dvd/cd drive I used an external drive with a usb interface. It starts to install and then...


Hi, you need to ensure your hard drive is set up correctly! To install XP first press the F1 key during bootup, select the primary boot device (your external drive) in BIOS, save changes and reboot, allow files to be installed, but when finished, select delete operating system, partion hard drive and reformat, allow system to reboot, then commence new installation of XP. If your problem persists it is most likely a bad section on your hard drive, and will need replacing.
Hope this helps

The system hang during winxp install


If its hanging during install you need to turn virus protection off in the bios. Have a root around in the bios and you'll see it sooner or later, If you need further help just shout.

XP Pro not installing from CD


Greetings.

Check the cable that connects to the hard disk. It seems it doesnt "see the hard drive". Try to see in the bios if the hard drive was detected.

Hanging on detection of drive when installing Windows XP


Installing Windows XP on a SATA hard drive is not a straight-forward task as Windows XP does not recognize the SATA drive. In order to install operating systems such as Windows XP on SATA drives, the latest SATA drivers are required.Download SATA drivers for the motherboard from the website and integrate them with the XP installation CD using software such as nLite. SATA drivers can also be installed as third party drivers; you will be prompted during the installation process. Without proper SATA drivers, installing Windows XP on a SATA hard drive is not possible as SATA mode would have to be disabled in the BIOS to continue with the installation.
Installing Windows XP on a Serial ATA hard drive is not an easy task, because the system does not recognize SATA drivers at startup. Windows XP Pro SP2 fares a little better with SATA drivers, but here is what can be done in cases where the driver is not recognized.

HDD Reformatting


why not reinstall sp3 again for windows xp if it freezes then it might be looking for files that don't exist anymore. If the virus attatched itself to your files they may have been removed when you ran your virus software. you don't need to format to reload windows. Just simply do a clean reinstall on C drive.

I bet your hard drive crashed on you. You might have to buy yourself a new hard drive and replace your old one with it. Then format it and install a fresh copy of your Operating System on it. Your error condes here indicate to me that you either got a blue screen or similar. Blue Screens and/or the code that you stated here are usually caused by a software issue, and are rarely hardware issues. But in this case, you may have gotten something bad on your computer, such as a virus or serious spyware, that wiped out your Operating System And caused your hard drive to crash/become corrupt. As I mentioned, try replacing your hard drive. Hope this helps.
