Hi
You'll probably need to take it to a reputable repair person or check my website www.micromend.com. The reason is that a program such as ERD Commander needs to be used to eliminate the password and then to restore the laptop is a 10 cd set with Windows and all the drivers. Good luck

Trying to reformat my ibm think pad from safe mode any thoughts on how to do this with out the disc?


Hello.

Often, IBM systems have a partition that restores your system to its original state (factory restore / recovery).

Power off your Thinkpad. Power on and press the F11 key repeatedly when the Thinkpad begins to start up

You should be able to access the partition and the instructions should take you through the process of recover.

Hope this helps.

I have a thinkpad t20 and a 570e, both with


The IBM Recovery Disk that comes with those laptops is set up for Windows 2000, not Windows XP Pro. The answer is No, you cannot use the IBM Recovery Disk for them, if you install Windows XP Pro.

However! You will have a recovery disk, because you will have the Full Installation disk for Each laptop. Windows XP Pro Full Installation Disk.

(Microsoft Users License states "One genuine copy of Windows per One computer" That means you need Two, genuine copies of Microsoft Windows XP Pro)

You can format-it and install-it again with the serial number from your backside of laptop. You should have one with Windows XP or something. Install from any windows cd and use your serial key. After that you have to activate your windows and make the updates.

Afternoon,

I hope this helps?

To recover the hard disk to it's original contents, do the following:

Note:

1. If the optical drive is not attached to your ThinkPad computer during recovery, DVD software and CD-recording software will not be installed. To ensure that they will be installed correctly, attach your ThinkPad computer to the X4 Dock and install the optical drive in the Ultrabay Slim before performing a recovery ioperation.

2. The recovery process might take up to 2 hours.

Attention: All of the files on the primary hard disk partition (usually drive C) will be lost in the recovry process. However, before any data is overwritten you will be give the opportunity to save one or more files to other media.

Power the computer using the AC adapter and ensure a fully charged battery is installed before proceeding.

1. If possible, save all your files and shutdown your operating system.

2. Turn off the computer for at least 5 secounds.

3. Turn on your computer. Watch the display carefully. While the message. "To inturrupt normal startup, press the blue Access IBM button" is displayed at the lower left of the screen, press the Access IBM button. The Rescue and Recovery workspace opens.

4. Click Restore your system.

5. Click Restore my hard drive to the original factory state and then click Next.

6. Follow the instructions on the screen.

7. When the recovery process finishes, press the Enter key. Your computer will restart with the pre-installed operating system, drive, and software.

Icons and desktop not displaying


This is most likely a system glitch. Try a system restore first, then a system repair with your operating system disc if the restore doesn't do the trick. You should be able to get into the system tools from the task manager to do the restore.

New harddrive


Check the connections and the drive settings (jumpers) to make sure its set to "Master, Stand alone". The IBM PC's autodetect's the HDD installed so if it doesn't read the HDD, there is a hardware problem.
Maybe is the Thinkpad interface faulty and the HDD you replaced is fine.
