You might like to check for virus first by booting with a bootable virus software CD or USB flash drive. If that's it then a lot of headache saved. If no virus then maybe something wrong with your hard drive. You might like to boot with CD or USB flash drive by modifying the boot sequence in BIOS. If you can see the hard drive after booting, then you can backup the data and try a physical media scan on the hard disk. That may fix it if you are given some options. Otherwise you can reinstall the operating system by using the Operating System installation CD or the recovery CD. If Operating System CD is not given, there might be an hidden volume from where you can restore the laptop to factory default. The instruction of doing so should be there on the manual of the laptop. If those are not working, I guess you may need to call the support person of ThinkPad.

Won't boot in safe mode


Starting an IBM Thinkpad T43 in safe mode allows you to troubleshoot technical issues that you otherwise couldn't. Often when a system has a virus or other type of malicious program, safe mode is the only way to locate and delete the problem. In safe mode, only the computer's essential programs are enabled, and only the files necessary to running the system are in use. Learn how to start an IBM Thinkpad T43 in safe mode using a few fairly easy steps.

1.Close all programs and restart the IBM Thinkpad T43.

2.Press "F8" repeatedly after the IBM logo appears, but before the operating system logo appears. If the "F8" key doesn't work, restart the computer and try pressing the "F11" key repeatedly.

3.Press the "down arrow" key to select "Safe Mode."

4.Press the "Enter" key. The computer will boot up in safe mode.

IBM has farmed out their Notebook/laptop business to a company named Lenovo. They also have excellent support. I recommend that you follow this link I have provided for you:
http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/homeLenovo.do
Once there on the right side you will find "Auto-Detect" select this, state your specific problem and Lenovo will do all the work. You might have to download some drivers or update your system, but you will be in the right spot. Good Luck

No Sound on my IBM t43 Thinkpad


all hardware requires a driver
driver is an information file that tells the operating system how device works
without the driver the device cant work

when you reformatted you must not have installed sound drivers

here is a link to Windows XP version of the sound drivers of your laptop

http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/license.do?filename=mobiles/1ya210ww.exe

download it
install it
reboot

and you will have sound

if you have a different operating system than windows XP, tell me and i will give you link for that

My ibm thinkpad t43 displayed a message "hard error D0014" on a small blue screen. when i shut it down by pressing the power button for a few seconds, it restarted. but the programs won't work.


This could be a problem, not sure if its a software related or if the hard drive is bad. If you can find a windows xp cd. Try and wipe out the hard drive and install windows xp on it. If it goes thru then you'll just need the drivers. If it errors out on you then you know its a problem with the hard drive and you'll need to replace it. If you get windows xp installed on it, let me know and I'll help you with the drivers.

MY IBM T43 fails to boot


Take out the hard drive and see if the laptop still shuts down. If it doesn't then your hard drive might be the issue. You can also try reseating your memory.
