Question about IBM ThinkPad T21 Notebook
My IBM Think Pad will not start up, when I turn it on all I get is a black screen.
That's the BIOS password it's asking for. The symbol with the hand in a circle with the line through it is telling you that you've entered an incorrect BIOS password. The system will not boot until you enter the correct one, or manage to reset it through other means (will void any warranties, if applicable).

Do a search for memtest86.iso. Burn this image to a cd and reboot your computer. When your computer reboots it should begin checking your memory for errors. If you still have problems it might be your hard drive.

There are two possiblities, first is your data cable it may damage so you need to change it or your data cable not plugged properly so check it. Secondly, you need to reset your boot order to resolve your issue.
Thanks & Best of Luck
