SOURCE: can't boot and forgot bios password on ibm r50e

Yikes. You've set a password on the BIOS and don't remember it?

Well, most manufacturers set a "backdoor" password on the bios that will allow you to get in. It used to be the backdoor PW for IBM was "merlin" but that may no longer be the case. If you absolutely cannot get in, then your option is to open the case to the laptop and disconnect the CMOS battery for about 15 seconds and then reconnect it. That will clear the CMOS to the factory defaults.

I wish you well with this.
Thanks for using FixYa!!

SOURCE: I bought a new Western Digital PATA 320gb notebook

Take a look at this image, read the Had drive manual on how to set the jumper, Try cable select jumper settings, if not work, try the master settings, if not try the slave settings, one of the settings must go on and works fine.

Here where you can find the jumper settings,

I tried installing windows server 2008 on my Ibm x236. after the installation completes when the system reboots I'm getting error msg. file: \windows\system 32\drivers\wdf01000.sys


that is a Western Digital driver file......for your hard drives likely.

If you are using RAID, then make sure that the RAID is the correct one, and if not, then make sure in the BIOS, you have NOT selected a RAID option.

If those do not seem to be at issue, then attempt to boot in Safe Mode with Networking. That error has been known to have other driver(s) unrelated to the WD driver.

Yes, this model is certainly compatible with Windows 7.
If you've lost the AC adapter and need to replace it, the most important things to look at are:
1) the size of the plug
2) the input voltage of the drive
3) the minimum current in Amperes (A) or milliAmperes (mA) required

For units manufactured after June 1st 2008, these are the requirements:
12 Volts
1.5 Amps
18 Watts

Western Digital recommends only using original WD power adapters.

Tip: sometimes you can find a cheap and original power adapter on eBay or Craigslist or Kijiji.

My WD3200B007 won't boot. Power light is on, as are the neon colour bars, but no response from the drive itself.


I strongly suggest you purchase a Hitachi hard drive, I have replaced several WD's due to the problem you have. I have never had an IBM/Hitachi hard drive fail and I have used dozens of them over the last 15 years in new builds as well as repairs.

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to boot

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your motherboard to your hard drive make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty

If you're using the original XP version it wasn't able to format the correct size of the hard drives. You need to find a version with Service Pack 2 and boot off that CD in order to format the correct size of the drives. You could also boot off a Vista installation CD and format the correct size.

320 GIG Hard Drive now thinks it is an 80 GIG hard drive


Enter your BIOS setup and check what the BIOS sees for hard-drive. It may not be assessing the drive size correctly so you may have to force it by manually entering the data it needs to see the drive.
