If you can boot to safe mode, try doing a restore.

When you turn on the system, just past the POST (before windows loads), hit the F8 key to get the menu between normal boot and safe mode.

When prompted, select SAFE MODE. Don't select safe mode with command prompt, or with networking. Just SAFE MODE.

Use the arrow keys to select SAFE MODE. If you need to log in, do so and proceed to launch windows.

Windows should launch in Safe mode. If it does, proceed to click on START, ALL PROGRAMS, ACCESSORIES, SYSTEM TOOLS, SYSTEM RESTORE.

Select RESTORE MY COMPUTER TO AN EARLIER TIME. Click on NEXT. If you can, select a BOLD date preferably before your issue. Click NEXT. System will load some files, reboot and reload.

If you can't get to safe mode, there may be other problems holding your system up. Did you load anything prior to the messages?

My ibm thinkpad t43 displayed a message "hard error D0014" on a small blue screen. when i shut it down by pressing the power button for a few seconds, it restarted. but the programs won't work.


This could be a problem, not sure if its a software related or if the hard drive is bad. If you can find a windows xp cd. Try and wipe out the hard drive and install windows xp on it. If it goes thru then you'll just need the drivers. If it errors out on you then you know its a problem with the hard drive and you'll need to replace it. If you get windows xp installed on it, let me know and I'll help you with the drivers.

How to enter into BIOS when trackpoint was broken.


Hi there.
Its something to do with the trackpoint, possibly the cable has become loose.
* If an emergency power down is made by switching the system off during or while an application is open, then immediately switching the system on creates a 8611 error.
* Repeatedly turning power off and back on without properly shutting down or allowing the system to shut itself down.

Solution
Wait at least 6 seconds or longer after shutting down the system or before restarting to correct the 8611 error.
See if that gets rid of the error, if not it could be a loose cable to the trackpoint.

Good luck

Won't start up


Hi there.
If the beep is a short beep then there is nothing wrong with the PC, just enter the bios utility, set the date and time, save the changes and exit the bios.
The computer will restart and should boot straight through to windows.
Please post back if you need anymore help or advice.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

Well, from Microsoft (Microcrap) they say it can be cause by several things on your system.
  1. Motherboard going bad
  2. Memory chips going bad
  3. Windows file Win.com or Command.com is damaged or Infect with a Virus/Spyware/Adware/Trojan
  4. Real-mode driver & Protected-mode driver are conflicting
  5. Registry is corrupted. (Heaven forbid this happens)
  6. Plug-In-Play in bios is also corrupted
Among others items on your system.
One thing you can dois , find online MEMTEST and make a cd image of it. Let it run of the cd and see if your memory is bad.
Most simplest of what has to be done.

Let me know

These errors indicate that the cmos battery is dead and needs replaced. The cmos is located under the main battery, the yellow pouch with two wires that lead to a connector. You will need to remove the keyboard to get to the connector. Replace the cmos, set the time and date, and you're good to go.
