IBM thinkpad R51 won't boot and the blue screen with unmountable-boot-volume comes up and i cannot bypass it.


Sounds like at least a corrupted OS, but most likely a bad hard drive. I'd try reloading Windows (if that's your OS) first, which should take well under an hour; if reloading takes excessively long, then the system is probably having a hard time formatting the hard drive due to physical bad sectors and the easiest thing would be to replace it. The R51 uses good old ATA/IDE 2.5" 9mm height hard drives, which are not available in most stores any longer, but you can probably get the same size or larger ones on eBay for pretty cheap and replace it yourself. Expect to pay about 50 cents to 75 cents per gigabyte - anything more would be considered tourist prices...

IBM R51 Backlight Problem..


check the model/part on the inverter. if you know you have a good one on the second laptop, remove it and try it in the non-working one. if the parts match which most of the time they do, then you are ok, it should only be two wires on the inverter, one coming from mobo, one coming from lcd. if that doesnt work you have blown a capacitor/resistor somewhere down the line. in that case it will have to be serviced and will run you anywhere from 80-130 if you find a place local or on ebay.

Good Luck!

Ibm think pad r51 nodisplay 4 beeps commaing


This indicates a possible memory problem. Reseat the RAM modules and boot up, if OK then the laptop is OK.
If not then :-
If you have two RAM modules, remove both and insert one and boot up, if it is OK then repeat with the other one - this will determine which memory module is faulty.

Motherbord problem


I don't work for IBM.

ibm systemboards cost from 200 to 800USD

Contact IBM service for repairs, I recommend you let someone else do the repairs.

Might not be worth it. You be the judge.

Mother board problem


Can you describe the display problem that you refer to? While it is possible that the motherboard is the problem, without knowing details of the problem it is hard to say how to fix it.
Thanks,
Dan
