I put machine back together by placed parts around base to test machine is working.All works discs install.
Great I thought.
I completly built up laptop an screwed all parts together.
When I came to power up all works accept no discs will install or can be read.Keep getting setup.exe or d:\ faults.

Check in all the connections and chek in the status of the dics if you feel is connected properly, in device manager.
at the end recheck all the connections and just press the disk so as to confirm the correct connectivity

Replace motherboard

What is the make and model? Be sure you purchase the correct replacement with the same suffix otherwise your chip set will not match your drivers.

drbrightirem.jpgOverclocking a processor means enabling it to operate above the manufacturer's specified frequency. Many internet sites provide instructions for overclocking. Processor manufacturers and many computer experts believe the slight gain in performance (only perceivable on CPU-intensive software) isn't worth the expense or considerable risk.

  • Get whatever tools you need: screwdriver, needle-nose pliers, motherboard manual, cooling hardware, etc.
  • 2 Find out whether your motherboard can be adjusted in the BIOS setup, with jumpers or not at all.
  • 3 Find out clock-speed limitations of the motherboard.
  • 4 Run all Windows and any third-party diagnostic applications you have. Fix all system problems.
  • 5 Make a complete backup of your system, documents and applications you don't have on CD-ROM. Do not overwrite these copies.
  • 6 If you have a BIOS-adjustable motherboard, make changes according to your motherboard manual, and skip to Step 15.
  • 7 Shut down computer.
  • 8 Leave computer plugged in to surge suppressor.
  • 9 Disconnect all peripherals from computer.
  • 10 Remove cover of chassis.
  • 11 Ground yourself to computer with any professional grounding equipment you have. Otherwise, ground yourself by touching a metal part of the chassis.
  • 12 If your motherboard has adjustable jumpers, locate the jumpers that control the CPU speed.
  • 13 Use needle-nose pliers to change jumper settings. Move jumpers to positions indicated in your motherboard manual for the clock speed you want. Check the internet for recommendations.
  • 14 Install a CPU heat sink, heat-sink compound, and a specialty cooling fan, if appropriate and possible.
  • 15 Put system back together, and reboot.
  • 16 If computer does not boot, and CPU still works, try lowering the clock speed. If that doesn't work, restore the original configuration.
  • 17 Check all functions, and run a CPU-intensive program.

    • CPUs have rated and maximum speeds. Exceeding the maximum speed is far more likely to cause problems than more conservative adjustments.

    • Overclocking an Intel processor explicitly voids its warranty. Other manufacturers have similar exclusions. Intel prevents overclocking of some CPUs by disabling higher multiplier settings.

    • Expect a shorter life for an overclocked processor, including the possibility of its immediate failure.

    • Prepare to deal with seemingly unrelated problems that can be caused by overclocking: destruction of other internal components, lost data, system and application crashes, and an inability to boot the system. Such problems can occur randomly or materialize well after you have altered your motherboard

    I have an Aptiva by IBM that I am trying to find out the size of the processor and how much memorry it has

    Suggest you download (Free) the tiny program, CPU-Z, from

    Bear in mind that the example shown on the CPU-Z page, is for a newer Intel Core i7 model.

    These processors do Not use a Front Side Bus. (FSB)
    Where it states QPI is Quick Point Interconnect.

    For the older processors this will state Rated FSB instead.
    FSB is Front Side Bus.
    Tells you what Frequency Rate ('Speed') that the processor FSB, is operating at THAT moment.

    (All info is Real Time. Watch the Core Speed change)

    Looking at the GUI example on the CPU-Z page, observe the tab that states CPU.

    When the program is first opened, the Processor (CPU) tab is automatically opened.

    Here you can see very detailed information on the Processor.
    Main things to look at are;

    1) Name: Manufacturer name and the Model Number

    2) Code Name: This name will help you differentiate what processor you are looking at. One of the things that is specific TO THAT processor.

    3) Package: Essentially tells you the processor socket that is used.

    4) Core Voltage: The optimum voltage the Processor will operate on.

    It is DC voltage.
    There is a voltage Range the processor will operate in, but the range is VERY SMALL.

    Depends on the processor, but 2/10ths above, or 2/10ths below, is an average example ( .2 )

    5) Rated FSB:

    This part of what you need to know, IF you are looking at upgrading the Processor.
    The rest of what you need to know, is what Motherboard Chipset is used.

    Chip and Chipset are slang terms for I.C.
    Integrated Circuit.
    The terms are used alternatively, as either Chip, or Chipset, also.

    For example, the motherboard chipset is actually two Chipsets.
    Or Chips.
    The Northbridge chip, and the Southbridge chip.

    (For the technology used by the motherboard of the IBM Aptiva)

    The Northbridge chip handles the Faster capabilities of a computer.
    The Processor, Ram Memory, and High-speed graphics.

    High-speed graphics being the AGP, or PCI-Express technology.
    A graphics card in a PCI slot, or using Integrated Graphics, is Not
    High-speed graphics.

    The Southbridge chip handles the Slower capabilities of a computer.

    1) Anything to do with the PCI Bus.
    (Such as a graphics card installed in a PCI slot )
    2) Same with the IDE Bus
    3) SATA bus
    4) USB bus
    5) Ethernet
    6) Audio (Sound)

    [ CPU stands for Central Processing Unit. Another term used is Microprocessor, or simply Processor, for short ]

    Clicking on the Mainboard tab, will show what the motherboard chipset is. (Mainboard is proper computer speak for Motherboard)

    Now then, what Series is it, and what Machine Type?

    OS is not loading in IBM Think T43 laptop

    From your description I would say you have a motherboard problem. It can also be cpu or ram. When you last had it running if it quit suddenly on you or if it was running hot you may have overheated the cpu. If it shut down normally it is possible the ram modules are faulty or loose in the sockets. I would look at those two and re seat them in their sockets. If you can try another cpu that would let you know if that's the problem, and try the same with the ram.

    Unfortunately past that point you are looking at a part failure on the motherboard which usually means replacement.

    From your description it does sound like cpu problems or motherboard.

    Upgrading cpu in IBM T30 laptop

    1. You must have a processor compatible with motherboard, an Intel Pentium 4M 2.2GHz P/N 91P7209.
    2. Download and read pages 81 to 86 and above from the Hardware Maintenance Manual:
    3. Pay close attention to reinstall the fan assembly and apply thermal compound if necessary.
    4. Re-assemble all the parts again by following the steps in reverse order of the manual.

    NOTE: For future reference, your laptop will change to a 2366-FBx, M6x or 2367-FBx model depending on case.

    Cmos password for ibm r40

    You will have to remember it. IBM puts a security chip on the motherboard, the bios password is burned into this, and there is no way around it. There are a few places that will replace the chip, but they are very expensive. The only other way is to replace the motherboard. I've found that replacing the motherboard is cheaper than having the chip replaced, so, if possible, remember the password.
