As its playing up, I gather it boots up.

Click on start - all programmes - accessories - system tools - system restore. Choose restore date prior to when the problbems all started.

If thats not effective, Click on Start - My computer and check how many hard drives you have. Your's could have 2 partitions which appears as 2 hard drives. C and D.

Its been common practice to store all the reset and recovery files on a partition on the hard drive, so dealers don't have to supply recovery disks.

If there is a second hard drive, then there will probably be a system recover process amongst your programmes.

If you don't have a user manual, also probably on your HDD somewhere, or you can download one from
the IBM website, follow links for downloads and support.

If finally you do decide you still need a windows disk, to remain legal, you'll probably end up having to buy a copy, make sure it comes with a registration code.

Finally for my part, Should you want to completely refresh your wifes laptop, for free, you can download and install a linux operating system for free. One of the more popular ones, I use it myself is Ubuntu.

If interested just Google Ubuntu, all the instructions are there on the web page.

Damaged 2004 ThinkPad, T4 type 2373, only the hard drive is good.


The hard drives are interchangable. I would check out ebay or even www.craigslist.com for a cheap inexpensive replacement thinkpad laptop.
