Did you see it work before you bought it? And, did it get jarred around any during the trip home? Answer these and I'll be able to better assist you.

    The general cause for the freezing is a bad memory chip, bad hard drive, or an operating system glitch, and can occasionally be caused by a loose hard drive. Start by checking the hard drive to be sure it's seated firmly in place. This is why I asked about there jarring. Then remove the memory, and try starting with one chip, then the other. Try each one in both slots. If there's no change, then you will need an operating system or recovery disc. If you recieved either disc with the machine, then run a system repair. If the repair doesn't take, then you will need to format the hard drive and install a new operating system. If the hard drive will not format, then it's bad and will need replaced, and if there are any issues during or after the install, the hard drive is bad. If you didn't receive any discs with the machine, then you will not be able to perform the repair, format, or install. These can only be done with a recovery or operating system disc. If you have any more questions, feel free to ask.

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.

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.

I have a thinkpad t20 and a 570e, both with


The IBM Recovery Disk that comes with those laptops is set up for Windows 2000, not Windows XP Pro. The answer is No, you cannot use the IBM Recovery Disk for them, if you install Windows XP Pro.

However! You will have a recovery disk, because you will have the Full Installation disk for Each laptop. Windows XP Pro Full Installation Disk.

(Microsoft Users License states "One genuine copy of Windows per One computer" That means you need Two, genuine copies of Microsoft Windows XP Pro)

IBM Thinkpad A21m freezes when I click on the icon My Computer


First off this machine wasn't really designed for Windows 98. Here's a couple of links that may help. The first is for a bios update to fix a few system bugs. Keep in mind that the bios are VERY important and you don't want to screw them up, so, either download and create a diskette or download and save to the desktop before running. The second is for A21 drivers. You may want to download any utility drivers that run with Windows 98. Your current drivers may be for 2000 or XP, and may be creating a conflict.
