    My T22's screen disappeared one day so I ordered the LCD cable and a friend installed for me. It was fine but started doing it again so I just left it open, since closing it seemed to do something to it. It is now acting weird again, sometimes with multi colored stripes, sometimes freezing on the windows loading page. Just freezing up. Does anyone think replacing the motherboard will do anything? I am just fed up with it but dont want to buy a new one at the moment. I like my IBM so a new motherboard or refurbished one would still be better than buying a new comp.

    mine doesn't just come up with a blank blue screen ithas writing on it which says:



    STOP: c0000218 {Registry File Failure}

    The registry cannot load the hive (file):

    \SystemRoot\System32\Config\SOFTWARE

    or its log or alternate.

    It is corrupt, absent, or not writable.



    Beginning dump of physical memory

    physical memory dump complete.

    Contact your system administrator or technical support group for further

    assistance.

    I have an OEM loaded Thinkpad T30 that until last night (!) booted and ran MS/XP SP3 just fine. NOW it won't boot AT ALL (not even into Safe) but instead "blue screens" with ~ "systemroot\system32\config\software file is corrupt, missing, or unwritable". I can "Norton" boot it to dos-prompt but NOW what? Microsoft's "Help and Support" instructions warn that OEM loaded OS should NOT use their directions to bak up and replace the system; software; sam; security; and default windows\system32\configwindows\system32\config files. HALP.

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.

This is skit i have fixed it! to install windows from cd you need to go into BIOS then go to startup then boot then put the cd drive first and the hard drive second on the list. it asks you to press any key to boot from cd. follow instructions and it's fixed!

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.

    To SKIT: if the guy who sold it to you on ebay said it was in good working condition, get your money back. he violated the terms of sale, and Ebay dispute will help you. Don't mess around, if that is what was said.

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.

ThinkPad Blue Screen of Death


Sometimes the blue screen can be caused by bad memory, but if it is doing it right when you try to sign in every time, it is probably a software corruption in windows. I have solved this problem by doing a repair install of windows xp, I am not sure if is an option on other os, if you google it you will find directions, you boot off the windows install disk and this option saves your programs and data.

IBM T22 Thinkpad won't boot up - not even in safe mode


either you have a virus or a corrupted dll file.
eitherway, beside create a bootable CD or Floppy disk, and try to fix from there, thats' time a money.
the next best thing, is to reinsall the operating system.
the other option is get a new hard drive and install the operating system on that so you can preserve the data you have on the old one.

Try to enter windows using safe mode, which you can use by pushing f8 during windows start up, if this fails the insert your windows disk and boot from CD, then ask the computer to solve problems and reboot.

Icons and desktop not displaying


This is most likely a system glitch. Try a system restore first, then a system repair with your operating system disc if the restore doesn't do the trick. You should be able to get into the system tools from the task manager to do the restore.
