Question about IBM ThinkPad T40 2373 Notebook

1 Answer

Booting Computer... For a while now I've had this problem with booting my computer... When I turn it on it (a) turns off and on by itself, never loading windows (no matter how long you wait) (b) loads but the screen is all messed up and blurry, or (c) loads normally. Usually I have to turn it off and back on several times to get it to the last one, and I know that's not good for it. I don't know if this has anything to do with, but the computer is also fairly new (just past the warranty!) and its running a bit slow... and if I close my computer after putting it in sleep mode or hybernate it and I open it back up I can't get the screen to come back on. I've checked with all sorts of virus scans and can't find one of those... any ideas on how to fix this?

    I'm sorry! I forgot to tell you what type of computer I had. Its HP Pavillion dv6000.... not a desktop... so sorry I didn't mean to make it sound like it was a desktop.

Hi Kodiola,

There may be a simple problem is your Ram . it may be not connected well in the memory slot. Do you know how to connect it. I will tell you the trick for removing and restore it.

In the back panel of the cpu there are two screw first remove it. Remove the side panel. here you can see the mother board and all the components. There you see the ram with two or four slot. In the corner of the slot two knobs. just slightly press the upward to down on the both side of the slot . then it will remove the ram from the slot.then clean with the cloth not wet cloth. then put the ram on the slot. now switch on the system and see .
if the prob comes again please inform to fixya.com

bye kodiola.

That card should have the drivers on the card.

Turn off the computer, insert the card into an available PCM/CIA or CardBus slot, turn on the computer. After booting up, XP should detect the card, find the drivers on the card and install them itself.

Looks like the board hang up on you. Take out the battery and unplug the power adapter from the computer. Press and hold the power button for 10 secs then put everything back in. Turn on the computer. Computer should boot up now.

Gateway lcd monitor


First, narrow down the problem to either the monitor, or to the computer itself. Either try the monitor on a spare or friend's computer, or try a known working monitor on your computer. I'd guess your computer is where the issue is at- it isn't booting the Operating System (MS XP or whatever O/S is present on the hard disk. if the computer is the issue, try booting from the CD which came with the computer, (assuming you have that CD). Or, you could see if some computer tech savvy person has a bootable floppy diskette. Basically a "no-boot" problem, can point to a number of problems: hardware issue (bad hard drive etc.), or an operating system problem.

Re boots itself


when you turn on the pc keep pressing F8 and it will boot into safe mode. When in safe mode highlight the option 'Last Known Good Configuration' and press enter. The pc should now reboot normally, if not you will need your installation cd to do a system repair.
