Re: IBM NetVista unable to bootup
This happens when the reset button inside is stuck.
If the system is under warranty. Opening the case will void warranty.
If it is out of warranty....
Open the cabinet and you can find a chunk of wires crowded in to a point on the motherboard.
If you care fully inspect you will find a pair of pin (jumper pin) marked "RESET".
If there is some obstacle that is shorting the contact, remove it and offcourse clean the dust particles or other material that could cause trouble.
This should solve the problem

dear friend firs restart your pc and then insert boot able CD into CD drive then keep on pressing f1 or del buttons to instal new OS... or enter into my computer and select C properties there you will find format option to format you drives...
use restore for last best known configuration from restarting the system....and as soon as it starts keep pressing F8 and you will ne diverted to safe mode console......over hear....you can use last good config.....
First of all if you re formatted the drive You have lost ALL of the information on that drive. Next you don't need to go through BIOS in order to boot from a disk. You can press F8 on the screen that you would normally enter BIOS with.
if you have to wait some minutes to restart it, that is overheating...try putting a ventilator (the bigger the better, the thing here is give lots of air to the processor > CPU) and see how its working...
