Question about IBM ThinkPad T22 2647 Notebook
When i switch my thinkpad on it goes through all the usual stuff it gets to a blue screen with writing on after the windows xp loading screen
This solution is for s-k-i-t: you will have to get a copy of the win xp install disk to fix this problem (you can borrow one as long as you have a COA on your laptop) but first get into the BIOS by pressing F1 right after you turn it on - you'll see the prompt in lower left corner. Then go to startup>boot>hard drive>Enter. This will show you the type of hard drive. If it is a IBM or Hitachi less than 60 gig chances are it is failing and this is why the hives (where XP stores its memory states) are corrupt. You can download the "Ultimate boot disk" and make a CD that will let you run hard drive test tools. If the hard drive is bad I would try to get the eBay seller to make good - depends on how long you've had it.

One of the reasons a screen will go blue after a while, until it constantly is blue, is that the LCD screen requires an inverter. It is located under the LCD screen. Same thing with TV LCDs. They are easy to install, not too expensive but I would call your manufacturer's help site to find out how to check if that is the problem.

Also, sometimes the screen will go to a blue screen, one with no writing or anything. I cannot get it to switch off and have to pull battery out.
