Preparing your ThinkPad computer for Windows XP
Before removing any software or operating system from your ThinkPad system, you will need to:

  • Make sure the BIOS on your ThinkPad computer is at the latest level.
  • Save the necessary driver, supplement, and software files on removable media.
NOTE: A computer with at least 128 MB of memory is required.

Installing Windows XP
  1. Insert the Windows XP CD into the CD or DVD drive. Follow the instructions on the screen.
  2. Follow the instructions for the Install shield program.
  3. Install the device drivers. The device drivers are found in the C:\IBMTOOLS\DRIVERS directory or you can download them from the T40 Device Driver File Matrix Web site. There is also an installation procedure text file in that directory. After you install Windows XP, you will need to install the application software, which is provided in the C:\IBMTOOLS\APPS directory on your hard disk drive.
Installing Windows XP Supplement File
The Windows XP Supplement File is in the following directory:
C:\IBMTOOLS\OSFIXES\WXPSUPP\IBMLCD
NOTE: If you cannot find this directory on your hard disk drive, download the Windows XP Supplement File from the ThinkPad Web site. For access to this Web site, press the ThinkPad button to open the Access ThinkPad panel. On this panel, click On the Web. A list of sites appears; choose the ones you want.
NOTE: Make sure that the correct video driver is installed prior to installing this file.
  1. Right-click on the desktop to open the Display Properties window.
  2. Click the Settings tab.
  3. Click Advanced
  4. Click the Monitor tab and click the Properties button.
  5. Select the Driver tab and the Update Driver... button. The Hardware Update Wizard opens.
  6. Select Install from a list or specific location (Advanced).
  7. Click Next.
  8. Select Don't search, I will chose the driver to install.
  9. Click Next.
  10. Click the Have Disk... button.
  11. Click the Browse... button.
  12. Select the folder that the Windows XP Supplement File is in, and find the file of IBMTPLCD.INF under IBMLCD folder.
  13. Select IBMLCD.INF, and click Open and then OK.
  14. Select the checkbox for Show compatible hardware.
  15. Select a panel in the list you are using now.
  16. Click Next.
  17. Click Finish and then Close.
  18. Click the Color Management tab.
  19. Click Add, and select IBMTPIPS.ICM or IBMTOLCD.ICM under the directory of c:\Windows\system32\spool\drivers\color.
  20. Click Add and close the Display Properties window.
Installing Windows XP Update Module Package
The Windows XP Update Modules are in the following directory
C:\IBMTOOLS\OSFIXES\WXPUP
The name of each subfolder is the number of a fix module. For the information about each fix module, Click here to visit the Microsoft Knowledge Base homepage, type the number of the fix module you need in the search field, and click the search button.
NOTE: The Web site address might change without notice. If the homepage is not displayed, search the homepage from the Microsoft top page.
To install a fix module, run the exe file in a subfolder and follow the instructions on the screen.

Install the application software that was saved in the Preparing your ThinkPad for Windows XP section from the C:\IBMTOOLS\APPS directory on your hard disk drive.

I have a IBM Thinkpad T40 the only thing i can get on is a black screen with white writing on it has it crashed


As I understand the problem, the computer won't boot up completely, right? If that's happening, then the problem has something to do with the operating system itself.

The only thing that I could think of to resolve this problem is for you to reformat the computer. Make sure that you have the necessary drivers for your components like video card, sound card, DVD player, etc.

If you're not sure about the drivers that you have, you may contact the computer manufacturer for second opinion.

Thank you!

The imb t40 has been very reliable but one day i turned it on and before it accessed the normal startup it was deleting a bunch of things and then when the log on the thing logs on and then right away logs...


IBM T40 - most likely running XP(Pro). When you say "it was deleting a bunch of things", I am going to assume that was some kind of security software you had installed (antivirus/antispyware/antimalware). Most likely your logon files were infected. You need to replace userinit.exe. If that doesn't do it, also replace winlogon.exe and csrss.exe. All of these are located in the system32 directory. You can do this a few different ways, one being a bootcd. If you are unsure of any of this, take it to someone who can help. This is easily repaired, so you do not need a reinstall!

Nothing happens when disc Inserted


If there are no activity lights, or a rhythmic flashing on the drive, then you may simply need a new drive. Small computer stores are usually the best place to go to get a replacement at low costs.
If you are just popping the disc in and waiting for something to happen, then your computer may not be automatically running the programs from the disc. In which case you will need to manually access the drive and run the correct program.
Good Luck!
