Why won't it load? Error-message(s) ?

Did you press the "blue" IBM Access button, and then tell the computer to "boot" from the CD-ROM device?

Some Viruses DO attach to the files in the recovery set up. They can also replicate themselves in files used to go back to an earlier time when things where running ok. The best thing to do is clean the system of any Viruses, Many good FREE programs on the net, Search for Malwarebytes, This is a very good free anti malware program, then Avast antivirus. Free to use and very good up to date programs.

Remove the battery and the AC adapter, drain the power by pressing the start button for 10 seconds and then put the battery back in and the AC adapter.

After you do that, to clear the virus follow the instructions on this link. If you can install programs on your computer, follow only steps 7 and 8 from the above link.

If you have an XP COA on the bottom you can use (borrow) any XP restore disk (doesn't matter what mfg) or a standard XP disk to restore the OS. You can also buy a CD on eBay for less than $10 but you will of course need the COA.

The IBM Recovery Disk that comes with those laptops is set up for Windows 2000, not Windows XP Pro. The answer is No, you cannot use the IBM Recovery Disk for them, if you install Windows XP Pro.

However! You will have a recovery disk, because you will have the Full Installation disk for Each laptop. Windows XP Pro Full Installation Disk.

(Microsoft Users License states "One genuine copy of Windows per One computer" That means you need Two, genuine copies of Microsoft Windows XP Pro)

Access IBM Button does nothing-- need it to start my comp up


Hi,
The Access IBM button is F11. This lets you boot the recovery partition. It is possible the previous owner removed the recovery partition to regain the hard disk space it uses.

If the recovery partition is gone, you can order the recovery disks from IBM/Lenovo.

Also, make sure you have the BIOS boot sequence in the correct order.. the primary boot device should be the cd-rom for installing the Vista disk. It is usually F8 on startup to load the BIOS.
Make sure the Vista disk is in the drive when you startup the install.

Here's a link to all the Thinkpad R50e drivers you'll need to get it fully working in Vista:
http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/MIGR-55042.html

If you have just formatted, have you let the Vista disk finish the installation? Just a thought..

Good Luck!
