Remove the Thinkpad main battery. Look for a small yellow disk. This is the CMOS battery. It is connected to the motherboard with two (2) wires that plug into the motherboard. The plug is included on the wires of a new battery. Check EBay for Thinkpad CMOS batteries. I have also heard Radio Shack in some cases carries this battery.

Blinking courser when start my pc and continue blinking then esc courser will stop blinking but after some time again blinking courser

Pls check if the Hard drive is detected in BIOS.
If Yes, then run a test on the Hard drive.
If the test fails, the drive has to be replaced.
If the test passes, then load the BIOS defaults and check if the comp boots to windows.
If it still doesnt boot, then you will need to reinstall the OS from the OS disks.

It clicks alot when it's booting and i can't get it to turn all the way on. It says fixed disc parameter table or bios error system halted

It seems as if your hard drive has failed or is going to fail. When you hear a clicking noise like that with no CD in the system that is usually what the cause is.
