It may be a sign that your hard drive has failed. Over 85% of the time that is the case. Also make sure in the bios setting you have the hard drive in the boot order. If you didn't go into the bios then that would not be the problem.

Formatting ibmthinkpad 2647


Hi there,
Power on, when you see the IBM logo, press F12 once to load the boot menu options, provided that you already have an Operating System CD / DVD in the drive, which should allow you to format your HDD.

There are many error messages that appear on your screen that make your heart flip, but I suppose the one that is certain to bring you out in a cold sweat is when you boot up your pc and a message appears saying Operating System Not Found!
You have good reason to get into a cold sweat with this error message because, nine times out of ten, there is a serious problem and that problem can be one of many, such as:
-The BIOS hasn't detected the hard drive
-You have an incorrect Master Boot Record
-The hard drive itself is damaged

When i turn on my e system 4213 laptop. keeps coming up with error message operating system not found. please help


Hi make sure you have no usb pen drives, floppy disks, or cdroms inserted then switch on the machine. If you still get the same error then your hard disk drive has malfunctioned or corrupted. If you have a restore cd or DVD insert this and restart the machine you may get an error message stating your hard disk drive is not found if it has malfunctioned.

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.
.

My IBM Think Pad T30 showin working on AC with out powering..


If it's not finding the operating system, and you'va ran the recovery cd, then the problem is going to be that the hard drive has failed and will need replaced. In order to double check and make sure it's the hard drive, run the recovery or operating system disc, and reformat the hard drive. If the hard drive will not format, then it's bad.

Ibm t23 laptop dvd rom not reading some dvds


Sounds like you need a DVD decoding software, ie... winvid, interdvd, and powerdvd. Windows media player will play some DVD's, but many DVD's, especially newer ones, need an additional decoder in order to work. You will be able to find the software at filehippo.com, download.com, or IBM's support site. Keep in mind that burning software, ie... nero, roxio, and dvd shrink, have decoders in order to burn the DVD, so they will work as a decoder in conjunction with your media player.
