Question about IBM ThinkPad R51 Notebook

1 Answer

My IBM thinkpad R51 will not turn at all. There is nothing when you hit the power button. I have over 800$ work of extra's I bought for this laptop. It has a 500gb Processor and the works. It just stopped working one day and I also have 150 pages of a book I was writing inside it. I had to buy a Dell Inspiron and I hate it. I miss my IBM Thinkpad. I don't know what's wrong with it. There is just no power at all. PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!!

You can get the stuff off your old drive in your broken laptop... Well thats if it isn't faulty, but if OK, you can take the drive out and connect it up via an inexpensive SATA to USB adapter, then you can just use the drive as normal drive. You connect up the drive & plug it into a USB port & it will show up in MY Computer as a drive.

I have a ibm thinkpad r51 but when i turn it on it will load to somewords and il say media test failure check cable exiting intel boot agent then it will jut stay there


It's trying to boot from a LAN or Network. You want it to boot from your hard drive.

Temporary Fix that you will have to change each time you turn on the laptop:
Notice the screen when you press the power button, at some point it will tell you the keys to hit to get into the Bios or System Setup and the key to hit to Change the Boot Order. Hit the key to Change the Boot Order and select the Hard Drive

Permanent Fix
Notice the screen when it boots up and press the key that allows you to get into the BIOS or System Setup. Tab over to the area that allows you to set the Boot Sequence. Set your Hard Drive as the 1st Boot.
The best boot sequence is:
1. CD/DvD Drive First (Just make sure nothing is in the drive when you boot)
2. Hard Drive 2nd

Blank Screen


First, confirm that it is the screen itself. Connect the video output to a known working monitor and then power on your Thinkpad. if the known working monitor behaves the same way you can rule out the laptop's monitor as the source of the problem. This may be the BGA, Ball Grid Assembly, leadless soldering problem related to video chips on the motherboard, but first test the monitors.

IBM R51 and is having a problem at startup


try removing all the memory modules on the system, usually you'll get beeps. if you do get a beep try one memory module at a time see if you get something on the screen, observe also the lights on the system see if they would stay on or blink or flash. its rare that a virus would attack the BIOS, more-likely a bad motherboard or harddrive can be prevent the computer from starting up. hit me back on the results. thanks!
