Reboot IBM think pad A21e


There are two possibilities, the hard drive has issues or windows has corrupted files. If you have a cd installation disc for a fresh install, try to see if the operational system will load, no change! the hardware should be checked in the event it needs to be replaced.

On my netbook Fn/F5 toggles between internal and external monitor,there is a possibility you might have switched this sequence accidentaly if your machine has this .
If not check manufacturers site for varying function options

Hi,

Click on the link below and select the correct driver for your system. I have already chosen your laptop model. A quick note to say that XP drivers will install on a Win2000 system.

My IBM Thinkpad with windows xp when turned on has many colors streaming on the screen. It will not load and what worries me is losing music, video & picture files. What can be done to retrieve the...


Might be video card problem or something that is connected with your video is getting fault, dirty or loose contact is a big candidate. If you can test it using external monitor if it have external monitor port try that first. If external monitor works then back up your files immediately using external media. CD, dvd, flash drive or in another external hard drive.

Second option is to take out the hard drive and hook it into a USB hard drive adapter or a USB enclosure. And retrieve your files if you want on another working computer.

Then the laptop should go to a repair. If you are not so sure of doing this, have your friends that have knowledge on this assist you or bring it to a reputable shop.

Just for an input.

Ibm notbook. how will i solve "bad crc1, stop post task. with an error code 0175?


The POST error code 0175 refers to a CRC (cyclic redundancy check) reading from the EEPROM chip, that data is corrupted, most likely a faulty EEPROM chip. This is a motherboard problem and cannot be fixed except by a motherboard replacement. This is an old laptop and would not be worth fixing, I suggest you put your money towards a new laptop.
You can remove the hard drive and put it into an USB hard drive adapter case and use it as an external USB hard drive.

If you're looking for the guides, they can be downloaded from Lenovo (the new brand name that is selling IBM computers) at this page. That should give you the details you need to know to solve your issue, but post back with other comments to this ticket if you still have problems.

My thinkpad doesnt works!


If you can, upgrade to WinXP (or LINUX) which will make things easier, or else use the re-install disk for your laptop. If you really want Win2000 to work and have lost your original disks, you need to download the appropriate drivers for that machine and install them under Win2000. It is the only way to get things up and running again. Make sure in device manager there are no yellow marks showing error state devices.

Don't use a driver management or automated program to install the drivers; download them one by one from the IBM web site and install and reboot cycle each one separately.

Good luck...
