Question about IBM ThinkPad R40 2897 Notebook
My R40 doesnt respond. Problems a few days. Two short beeps and one longer then nothing a few days ago. I never did anything with the RAM <256Mb+128Mb>before. I now took them out, and put them back. It did start up, but soon froze in windows. I tried a few more times but eventually it went dead, no respons at all when pushing the power button. The following morning I swapped the memories in their slot position. The laptop started up...it kept freezing in windows from time to time. But has been working for about two days without problems. This time I moved the laptop a couple of feets from one table to another when it suddenly shut down. The power indicator and the angled "N", next to the battery sign is lit. Nothing happens when I press power button. I fiddled with the memory position of course. This time it didnt help.
I allready install window 7, but then i'm not happy with that, i'm try to boot back window xp. its not work. now i want to know how to boot it back to window xp. pls pls any body help me.....
