Error 174


Error 174 is hard disk drive failure, you'll need a new hard drive. But since that is a 2002 era system you might consider a new notebook too.

I have ibm deskstar 20GB. Problem is that i want to connect it as an external drive through usb connector. It detects but no partition is shown in my computer. i try all jumper setting define in manual...


In Windows 7, you can use Disk management to detect and create a partition on this drive if necessary.
Steps: 1. Connect your external drive through a USB port.
2. Click Control Panel - System and Security - Create and format hard disk partitions (under Administrative tools)
3. Your drive should appear in the table below. Select the external disk and Right Click on it. You will be presented with several options (Create partition, Format, etc.). Select whatever is applicable in your case.
4. Your external drive should now be detected by Windows 7.

After the boot screen I get a message that says "no bootable devices found"


Try to change your the boot sequence to HDD. If this doesn't change anything you have to reinstall your Operating System. Here is a quick method to reinstall your O.S., but after you reinstall it once:

I have problem to install window xp in my laptop, which already have window vista....my notebook donot support to install xp..please tell is there any way to install xp...


What is your problem specifically? Is it that there is no hard disk detected when you try to install windows xp?

Try using third party software to detect the hard disk on your laptop
Try this link. It will basically give you your hard drive driver while installing windows xp. You will also need an external floppy disk drive if you dont have diskette drive in your laptop.

Which operating system supports IBM thinkpad 600x


All versions of windows except Vista and Windows 7.
You may find it difficult to purchase Windows version up and including XP.
You may need to install more RAM and a a 6 to 10 Gb hard drive.
The smallest hard drive available is approx 100Gb but the BIOS in the Thinkpad won't support a hard drive this large.

My ibm thinkpad r51 is not starting up just keeping giving me error message and it doesn't recognize the hard drive in boot. I have to take the battery to stop the system trying restart the window again...


It appears the hard drive is faulty.
Does the hard disk LED flash when the laptop boots up?
Go into the BIOS configuration and see it the hard drive is detected, (then Startup - Boot - and look at IDE HDD0 it should list the make and model of the hard drive).
If the hard disk is detected it still could be faulty. To test the hard drive, remove the hard drive and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter and connect it to a working computer's USB port.
If the computer sees this as an external hard drive and you can open the various folders and files then the hard drive is OK and the fault could be the disk controller on the laptop's motherboard.
If the hard disk is not detected the it is faulty and you need to replace the hard drive in the laptop and install Windows etc. to get it working again.
