You are apparently missing the correct drivers.

Download this software to find who manufactured the drive:

http://www.belarc.com/free_download.html

The program will investigate your system and give you detailed (4-5 pages) of information about every corner of your computer and much of its software.

This will enable you to go to the correct website without guessing.

My computer will not boot windows xp os


Do you mean it won't pick the disc? If so, try F10 it should also give you a boot menu if you don't see press any key to boot from cd... The other option is boot into BIOS and change your boot order. CD-ROM/DVD should be the 1st option.8_28_2012_7_14_07_am.jpg

I have a thinkpad 600e , thats not my problem anyway im not the administrator which means i can't upgrade, install anything. I tryed to delete admin and put myself didn't work , help please!!!!!!!!!!!


You have to re-install windows from install media (CD-ROM) to set an administrator
password. The best advice as to what to do with this password is to tape it to the bottom of the
computer (or inside the battery compartment), since everyone forgets these all-important
passwords by the time a computer is ready to be given away or sold.

Formatting IBM Thinkpad 600E


I know you can't boot from the Windows 98 CD, and probably not from Windows 2000 either. It is possible to turn the the Windows 98 bootable floppy into a bootable CD, but I think you would be much better of trying to install Linux.

The problem is the video driver, either it has been corrupted or uninstalled, that is why the display is set to standard VGA settings of 640X480 with 16 colors.
You can check this by going to the Control Panel - Display - Settings - Advance and check the Adapter.

To fix this problem install the Video driver.

As the laptop boots up, press F12, this will allow you to select the CD as a boot device.

600E 2645 won't boot from cd rom


u will have to go to your setup screen and reorder your boot screen so your cd rom will boot first so you can install windows 98, but if your cd rom isn't working you need to go to your device manager and look for your cd rom and install the driver

That unit it about 10 years old.
Unfortunately, you cannot upgrade the CPU (processor)

The RAM is a standard 100MHz non-parity SDRAM SODIMM. The 2645 can use 128MB DIMMS for 160MB maximum. It has 32MB internal and two slots.

The hard drive size is limited by the BIOS. Any standard 2.5" hard drive should work, but may show as limited size, maybe 20GB.

Get a PCMCIA modem.

If you found a docking station for this unit, you'd be in better shape. Like I said, it's 10 years old. It won't be easy.
