Here, here, here and here are some excellent resources that will help you to troubleshoot the stop error codes (blue screens). If you reply with the exact code # you are getting, we can give you more detailed help, but you should be able to run chkdsk from the recovery console (if you have it installed, it would appear as a boot option (breifly) when you boot your system, or by pressing F8 as it boots up. For more info about recovery console see here and here. You can also run chkdsk from an installation cd if you boot the system from the install or recovery disc instead of the hard drive. See instructions to run chkdsk here and here.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

My ibm thinkpad t23 will not go pass blue windowxp screen need help


There are many possible reasons for a blue screen at windows xp.the most likely ones are:damaged windows instalation - in which case you will need to reinstall windows.damaged physical drive - in which case you would need to get a new hard drivethe OS cannot access memory - could be RAM memory or HDD.
I'm guessing you would just need to re-install the windows. You are most likely to lose all data.

System is saying that I need the original disk their is a problems with windows. I cannot get pass this error message on screen.


It sounds like your operating system has been corrupted either from software errors or a failing hard drive. In some cases you can boot into Safe Mode by pressing F8 during boot. Then you can run a disk error utility to hopefully fix the error. If you do have to reload Windows from scratch, I would recommend installing a new hard disk as they tend to fail after 2 or 3 years from normal use.

ThinkPad Blue Screen of Death


Sometimes the blue screen can be caused by bad memory, but if it is doing it right when you try to sign in every time, it is probably a software corruption in windows. I have solved this problem by doing a repair install of windows xp, I am not sure if is an option on other os, if you google it you will find directions, you boot off the windows install disk and this option saves your programs and data.

T 43 says "operating system not found"


Sounds like you have a bad hard drive. Boot up with a Windows CD and select repair at the setup menu. It should dump you to a command line. Type "chkdsk /f" without the quotes and it will check the hard drive for errors. When it's done, reboot normally and it should get you into windows. If it doesn't, replace the hard drive and install windows on the new HDD.

You can download the software known as Active boot disk. With this you can create a bootable cd to run a chkdsk with the f and r command to fix and recover errors on disk. you can also explore your comp and copy files to an external disk. If after the system boots normally after chkdsk you might have a problem with your HDD get it replaced before it crashes again

Try to format the System using NTFS and if it still says 'corrupted', the Hard Drive is faulty and you will have to get a new one

IBM thinkpad T22 problem


This solution is for s-k-i-t: you will have to get a copy of the win xp install disk to fix this problem (you can borrow one as long as you have a COA on your laptop) but first get into the BIOS by pressing F1 right after you turn it on - you'll see the prompt in lower left corner. Then go to startup>boot>hard drive>Enter. This will show you the type of hard drive. If it is a IBM or Hitachi less than 60 gig chances are it is failing and this is why the hives (where XP stores its memory states) are corrupt. You can download the "Ultimate boot disk" and make a CD that will let you run hard drive test tools. If the hard drive is bad I would try to get the eBay seller to make good - depends on how long you've had it.
