Question about IBM ThinkPad T22 2647 Notebook
When i boot up my a21m it stays at the ibm slash screen. i can't enter bios or boot order. please help!
If system does not start on your A21 you may need to reinstall the system. To perform a recovery or repair, do the following:
Make backup copies of your data files, if possible. Any files on drive C that are not backed up will be lost.
Do one of the following (for best results, use the F11 method):
If you are using the Product Recovery program for recovery purposes, turn off your computer for at least 5 seconds. Press and hold the F11 key while you restart the computer. When the Product Recovery program starts, release the F11 key.
Note: If pressing the F11 key does not start the Product Recovery program, then your recovery partition is corrupted, in this case you will need to use a Recovery Repair diskette.
If you are using the Product Recovery CD for recovery purposes, place the CD in the drive (if you have more than one Product Recovery CD, use Product Recovery CD 1). Then, restart the computer. The Product Recovery program starts.
Do one of the following:
If a menu is displayed giving you an opportunity to select an operating system, use the arrow keys to move to the appropriate operating system, press Enter, and then continue with the next step.
If an operating system menu is not displayed, continue with the next step.
From the Product Recovery program Main menu, make the appropriate selection (IBM Rapid Restore PC, Factory Contents, or System Utilities), and then press Enter.
Follow the instructions on the screen.
If your recovery partition is gone this company is offering a download of A21 restore disks for $19. You will need to download from them on a computer with cdrw, and then burn your recovery cd yourself.

Your machine is failing to proceed possibly because
B. If A. fails then go as far as removing the RAM and try booting up
C. If it boots on but when you add the hardware back on it does not boot then try booting from a CD or Floppy (if available).
D. If C. works then check your disk for errors in MS DOS before reverting back to your normal Operating System.
