For that you need to boot your computer with recovery disk or windows disk.
Inset that disk into cd/dvd rom then when you power up the computer press F1 or F2 or del or ALT+F2 key to enter in bios.
Then go to boot menu and set first boot device as cd/dvd rom then save settings and exit.
Then it boot with disk.
Press any key to boot from cd.
Then follow the procedure and enter in recovery console mode.
Then you see prompt type in prompt "chkdsk /r" without "" then press enter then it fix and recover error on harddrive.
Then check if still same issue then boot again with disk and this time choose repair previous windows so it repair windows system files.
Also open back cover of laptop then reattach the RAM memory.
then it will work fine.
Let me know if you need further assistance.
Thanks for using FixYa.

Thst means that you have an important file for the Operative System to run. Try to get an Operative System Installation CD (which I assume in your case is Windows XP) and run the installation procedure. The first option you are going to see is to use Recovery Console to repair XP, skip this and continue to Install XP. Then you'll see an option that says "REPAIR", choose this one (it won't wipe out your personal info, just will fix the corrupted files). This usually happens due to lack of maintenance done to the computer. Hope it helps, good luck.

P.S.: If this answer your question, please leave a review.

Error loading operating system


The Thinkpad T23 is old, and would not worth fixing. Save your money on a new one.
The problem with your laptop is that the hard disk or the disk controller has failed and therefore cannot find the operating system on the hard disk. The error message states that it can't see the operating system that is on the hard disk.
.
If the hard disk is the only thing that has failed then you can buy a new hard disk and install Windows operating system on it to get a working laptop again. You will also most likely need to download the device drivers (ie. video, audio, modem, LAN adapter etc.) from IBM to install after the Windows installation.

Try to borrow a 2.5" drive or get a cheap one from a computer market and fit it to your laptop to see if the BIOS can detect the hard drive. If it works then outlay some money to buy a decent size hard drive, no point wasting money if the laptop is faulty.

Start up problem with my IBM thinkpad windows XP


type f8 at startup and try last known configuration. if that doesnt work then safe mode. If that doesnt work then try to find a duplicate file (backup), try to find file with dos console - go to windows/system32 and type dir ntoskrnl*.*   so youll find out if there was maybe a copy of this file.  IF you HAVE a Fast PC then sometimes its easier to install a fresh copy of windows, then to search for such errors.

Assuming that you are using Windows XP, the easiest solution would be to boot from your XP cd and do a system repair. Please let me know if you need more info on how to do this.
