ThinkPad T20 2647 PC Notebook: The lap top will not boot. It's a thinkpad T20...

Hi, During the boot at the THINKPAD SCREEN press the Thinkvantage key ( Blue button ) it will launch rescue and recovery and allow you to reboot factory. This only works if you did not corrupted/deleted the rescue and recovery hidden partition on the HDD. Otherwise you will need the rescue and recovery CD to proceed. IBM/Lenovo support should be able to provide you the CD. Might be a defective hdd aswell, in this case to make sure you can run a DFT test, -> Look up for " Test DFT " ( Drive fitness tool from hitachi, will make an hardware diag if hdd failure - error code 0x00 = everything fine, other code = Issue - You can look up for accurate code explanation on hitachi website ) thanks and have a nice day J-

Yes, it's possible, but unless you are a qualified laptop technician, I recommend that you take both computers to a qualified technician, to get the job done properly and safely and correctly.

I am looking mfor the unlocking code IBM ThinkPad T20

Hi, If you are talking about the Boot, HDD, Bios password, then the only one way to recover it is to implement a chip on the systemboard to shorcut the protection or to contact Lenovo for a systemboard replacement. Unfortunalty, no other ways other round. Thanks and have a nice day J-

This may sound silly but it is often overlooked by many people......Have you changed your T.V channel to AV? There is usualy av1 and av2 options. Try these and let me know if you have any success or not.

Wow, a lot of information but I'm unclear as to what you are trying to do.

Are you connecting the T20 directly to the T40 using a cat5 cable and then trying to access the internet on the T20 via the modem?

Connecting the two computer together using a normal cat5 will not work, you need to use a crossover cable otherwise you are connecting the send to the send and the receive to the receive.
You can also use a hub, a switch or a router if you have any of those on hand.

As for the modem, I suggest you unplug the telephone line from the modem and plug it into a phone and see if you can hear a dial tone. If you cannot hear a tone either the extension is bad (replace) or you outlet is defective. If you can hear a tone, the modem card may be defective.

Could be a problem with the MBR or Master Boot Record.
It could be damaged. It's only a file system type problem not a hardware fault.
Have a look here.

Good afternoon Lewis!
Close to the right rear corner, there is a small black plastic latch that needs to be moved to the rear. That will cause a blue handle to pop out slightly. You grasp that handle and pull. That should release the CD drive and allow for it's removal.
