IBM ThinkPad T23 Can't install Windows XP

I have a strange problem. I can install all windows on my IBM ThinkPad T23 including Windows Vista etc. When I try to install Windows XP it formats and copys files alright. But when it restarts and goes to start actual installation setup windows becomes blank... nothing happens on it. But If I install anyother windows then there is no problem. Plz advise as I really need to install Windows XP. Many thanks

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.

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 T23 needs a set up disc. I purchased it used so do not have one. Help

Use a Windows installation CD, and you will need the product installation code. This code is printed on the Windows label on the bottom of the laptop. Make sure the Windows CD matches the Windows version that is printed on the label.
