A blue screen indicates an operating system error or glitch. Without being able to upload to Windows, you won't be able to do a restore. You will need to do an operating system repair with the recovery or operating system disc. If the repair doesn't take, then try a system reload. If you have any problems at this point during of after the reload, then the hard drive may have failed.

I have an IBM Thinkpad R51 Series 1830. A friend of mine installed a Dell Windows XP Home Edition on to my laptop and it wiped out all my IBM drivers. There is no sound, no video card and it will not go...


Use another computer to download the drivers;
then burn them to a dvd and run them on your computer.

for video drivers goto

Hi. My friends were downloading music on my laptop and now it won't start up. I keep getting the start-up wizard and it keeps asking me to restart my computer. I am on my home desktop right now.


The best way to get this resolved would be a system restore.

Restart your computer and Hit the F8 key before windows logo appear.
Boot the computer in safe mode
Log in as Administrator
Go to syster restore (Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore)
Click next
Select a date when everything seems to be working fine
Complete the restore
Let the computer restart in normal mode

Restore my Acer Aspire One AOA110-1588 PC Notebook


Do you mean that, in system information the users name is name after your friend?

Goto control panel, goto system,goto advanced system,click computer name, put the name you like click change and then click ok.

Changing user name- goto control panel, goto user accounts select create a new user account or manage another account fill the blank except if you don't want to password it, set it as administrator if everything is done, log off then log to the created account backup the files from the other account. Then delete the account of your friend under User Accounts. The only thing left will be name to you. Except some other name he/she change in registry like registered name.

Hope it helps

Cant get pass bios screen


Start safe mode with command prompt.

Invoke the system file checker,In the command prompt type:
sfc /scannow (space between sfc and the / )
The system will immediately begin to check all the current system files and restore the cached approved copies.

Note:You may be asked to insert the Windows CD during the restore.

Error 19990301 on a Thinkpad 600 usually indicates that the hard drive is not properly connected, and error code 19990305 signifies "no bootable device". So, it's the hard drive.

First of all, I would try removing and replacing the drive to see if that cures it. You can get the service manual from Lenovo at http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?lndocid=LWIK-3SYPX2

If this doesn't fix it, the hard drive is faulty. However, small size hard drives (10 or 20Gb) which suit these older machines are very cheap on eBay.
