Booting and error messages Thinkpad 385xd2635

When I boot up the machine, I get 3 error messages; 00161, 00163, & 00301. Also, after rebooting to DOS, I can't go back to 98. It's been a long time since I used DOS, so I've forgotten how to do this. Can you help?

Biostar TA790GXE 125M keeps shuting down when I boot windows, on SATA and IDE hard drives


Run the Check Disk Utility.

To run the check disk utility you will need a repair disc or a operating system disc. Put the disc in the cd drive and boot from it. You want to get to the Dos Command Prompt (Black screen with white letters) and type the following command: chkdsk /r
Check disk will run well over an hour or two and you will notice the percentages going from high to low, this is normal. Let it run to completion. Then reboot machine.

If check disk fails to solve your problem you might have to reinstall windows. Try doing a Repair Install that way you don't loose your data, documents, music, pictures, videos or programs.

In windows xp you get to the dos command prompt by selecting R for repair when the options appear.

In Vista and Windows 7 you want to get to the recovery console and look down at the bottom of the window for the Dos Command.

MY LAPTOP GOES TO THIS BLUE SCREEN THEN SHUTS DOWN WHY DOES IT DO THIS


Remove the Power Cord, Open the Case and remove one of thememory chips. Set the chip aside then try rebooting the computer. If it boots, then you know the memory chip you set aside is bad so mark an x onit with an ink pen. If it fails to boot then move the chip to the nextmemory slot and try rebooting. If it fails take the chip out and set itaside, then put the other chip in and try booting it in both slots. If itboots, just to verify that the chip set aside is bad, mark an x on it and putit into the open memory chip slot and try booting.

REBOOT AND SELECT PROPER BOOT DEVICE OR INSERT BOOT MEDIA IN SELE


1, to open your cd drive manually, get a tooth pick, look closely onto your cd drive i mean where the cd comes out from when ejected, you will see a very tiny hole put the tooth pick inside the hole push it in a bit hard then bring out if it does not try a tinier object it will come out.

2, if the system was on when u disconnected the belt it might have burnt the hdd or has caused error on the hdd, off the computer and reboot if no solution, reformatt the system if it does not work, get a new hdd. thanks

ThinkPad A21m won't boot into Windows


Did the laptop you got come at least with a windows XP cd? If so boot the laptop off of that and try to install Windows XP and see if it goes thru. Just make sure during the installation you tell it to delete the partitions first and then let it go thru that way you know for sure the hard drive is clean at that point.

Cannot reboot IBM thinkpad t-21


There must be some driver you have installed recently. Try booting in safe mode and restore your system to an earlier date.

Booting problem


I suspect your machine is an IBM Thinkpad 770.

The Error 0270 means you must replace the lithium coin cell battery. Google "Thinkpad (your model) support" and read the manuals for instructions.

With a new battery installed, boot into Setup by pressing the F! key. Reset the clock and verify that the hard drive is recognised.

Reboot, all might be OK. If not, download and run IBM's free PC-Doctor utility to test the machine. If all is OK, I suspect the hard drive was stripped and an operating system must be installed. Verify this with a DOS boot floppy. Run FDISK to view your partitions.

Good luck.

Error


sounds like your cmos 3 volt battery is dead and needs replaced.
its a very small coin size battery located/hidden inside the laptop.
you will have to google the placement or just find it.

How to get into the Dos prompt at reboot for the IBM ThinkPad 2645?


Vince,
First of all, What operating system do you have on this machine?
If it's Win98, you can get DOS.
If it's WinXP, you will have to make a bootable CD to get into the DOS prompt.
Check out this link :
http://www.bootdisk.com/bootdisk.htm

You can also get into the setup from CD, by changing the boot sequence from BIOS. (If the installation CD that you have is a bootable CD)

Hope this helps.

Thanks & Good luck!
