Dont worry you need to reinstall Operating System that's all you need to do,
Reinstalling is somewhat risky job you can take your laptop to a authorised service centre.
anyway steps for formatting
Restart computer when booting goes on press F5 Or DEL key to goto bios setup menu change boot order to first cd drive then hdd
PressF10 and press Y and enter.
computer will restart
Insert xp,vista,win 7,linux,mac os cd.
Press enter to boot from cd
Follow the instructions
Then your problem will solve.
Thanks

I can't open bios of T30 ThinkPad IBM computer because I do not know bios passwords.I want to know way of open?


if you've forgotten the BIOS password, you'll have to check with IBM. Often, they have a way, usually a temp password like method that you can use to disable the BIOS password. for desktop systems, removing and reconnecting the coin-cell battery or a password reset jumper can be used, try to check the manual of your laptop if that applies to you as well.

Forgot password


Hello,

On the Thinkpad's, it's a fairly easy process to reset the passwords. Try the following steps and you should be able to access the computer...

1. Power off the lpatop.
2. Flip the laptop over and open the Memory cover. It should have the diagram of a Dimm on it.
3. Short-circuit the two password pads or put a jumper on the contacts to short the circuit.
4. Remove the jumper, or whatever you used to short the password pads and put the cover back on the bottom of the laptop.
5. Power on the laptop and you should be fine.

How to get rid of numberlock in ibm thinkpad t30


Hi Ritadeng,

On the Thinkpad T30, the number lock key can be turned on or off by pressing the shift-key and the scroll-lock key. The scroll lock button is found at the top of the keyboard between the PrtSc button and the Pause button.

You should see the light with the arrow and the number 1 inside (just above the F7 key) turn on and off when you press this.

Hope this helps!
