I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I bought this laptop used, and did not work. To test the operation I entered the Linux cd Lubit and the thinkpad a31 work properly, the only problem is not installed because he had no hdd. So I installed without updating bios and hdd upgrade has failed. Now I added hdd and the computer says "BOOTMGR is missing Press Ctrl + Alt + Del to restart" how do I restore?

Welcome to the forum!
 
My guess is that you're looking at a blank hard drive with no operating system installed.

I doubt there are any fixes and these are mostly observations, but here goes: 1. The other day, I had screen flashes for a couple hours in the middle of the day. I was battery for extended time, but not doing anything video intensive - taking notes with onenote in laptop mode. The screen would flash with random frequency, and made it almost unusuble, but then would stop for a few minutes and start again. It finally stopped, but i never found a cause. I did disable the WIndows error reporting, made sure i had the latest driver (mine is slightly newer then what lenovo system wants to download) -  2. Video resolution when used with external monitor - I have an external monitor above the laptop - leaving the laptop at recommended 2560 x 1440 and size at 200% (recommended) makes the laptop 2x as big as the monitor above it in the extended desktop layout - this causes issues moving the mouse between the 2 as the monitor is 2x the size of the lptop. (Driver 21.20.16.4678) 3. Dragging windows from this 200% display to  my external monitor causes some 200% sized artifacts until the entirewindow is moved. 4. I use synergy to share mouse and keyboard between my Macbook and this - the mouse hits an artificial wall near the laptop right side - i believe it has to do with the display scaling 5.

Hello. I recently installed a Samsung 950 Pro in the P50.After some problems during the installation it seems to work fine, but.... The 950 pro supports AES Hardware encryption (Advanced Encryption Standard, Class0 SED).I also was able to use it with a normal SSD before. After I installed the 950 NVMe, the option for setting a harddrive Password inside the BIOS just vanished.  am not able to set any harddrive passwort and thus use encryption. Every other PW seems to work fine...I would like to ask why that happened there and I hope that some of you may be able to help me with that. Thank you very much,Greetz










Solved!
Go to Solution.

A:Thinpad P50, Samsung 950 pro and password security

While 950 Pro presumably supports AES on hardware level (i.e. all data is encrypted prior being written on the flash chips), key management is still "to be supported by FW update" ( http://www.samsung.com/global/business/semiconductor/minisite/SSD/global/html/ssd950pro/specificatio... ) If you want to encrypt your 950Pro, use Bitlocker or other third-party encryption solution. There is a performance and SSD wear cost associated with that, but it's negligible for most applications.

Hi,
 
Are you trying those keys on startup or on restart?  If you've only tried on startup,  try on restart - or on startup after a full shutdown (SHIFT + shut down).
 
You could also try the advanced startup options from within windows.

Can the external monitor on the thinkpad 770 be used independently (ie: separate application) with the lcd ?
 

A:Solved: Dual Monitor on IBM Thinpad 770x

Dusty,

Do not confuse "external monitor" with "DUAL Monitor". The latter is what you apparently want. The former is what you have.

You can Google: Thinkpad 770 external monitor

Unzip it, launch Hijack This, then press Scan, and press Save Log

We recently picked up a IBM Think pad 600E laptop from a friend, and we reformated the disk and put in Windows ME. Everything went good, it worked just fine. Looked in the System folder to see if I had any conflicts, and our Intel 82371AB/EB PCI Bus Master IDE Controller had a conflict with something else. We went through the hardware troubleshooter, and did like they said. They said that we needed to change it so that "both PCI controlers were sharing". So we changed it and rebooted like it said to do, and now when it reboots, it gives us a black screen with a picture of a floppy disk and squares with F1-F12 in them. We have tried to push every single button, and it does not work.

We tried to put the boot disk for the laptop in and boot from that, but it won't even recognize the CD rom.

Also has an unknown device in the system. That is another problem, will fix when we get it back up.

Greetings,
My friend's printer is really acting up...It is a canon color bubblejet bjc-600e...A small piece of paper dropped into the paper tray and is now probably causing the printer to work correctly. Only problem, I can't get to the piece of paper because it is so small. How would I open the printer all the way so I can clear out any debris jamming it up? I don't want to just open the front part, I want to get on the inside without damaging the printer. Thanks!
 

A:canon bjc 600e

I have a couple of friends that work on printers for a living and they won't even work on these. They tell me it's not worth the effort since they are not really made to be repaired easily and it would be cheaper to buy a new printer then repair these.

That said, I would try some compressed air, a swab and alcohol and try to get as far down as possible. Clean the rollers you can reach and the area around the ink cartridges.

I decided to try bringing this oldie back to life. The CMOS battery was dead so I replaced it with a new one with the same model number, which solved the issue of error 161 and 173 (I think these were the exact numbers). After replacing the CMOS battery, those two errors did not show up again.Now however, it does not go past the Thinkpad logo with/without a HDD/bootable CD. I left it like that for an hour earlier on, but nothing further happened. On trying to enter the BIOS, it shows error 301 (keyboard error) but does not leave the logo. Clearly the keyboard works as this error shows only when trying to access the BIOS (by holding F1 when powering it on).Since it will not find the OS installed on the drive, nor does it want to read a bootable CD, I'm trying to get into the BIOS to see what is wrong, but I cannot even access that. Anyone have any insight?

A:Screen Goes Off in ThinkPad 600E

Verify if the lcd panel actually displays anything. If you can still see your screen, faint, dark or whatever, it means the lcd backlight is off.  Three possbile reasons: the LCD Inverter has gone bad, the LCD backlight has gone bad, or both the LCD Inverter and backlight have gone bad. Try using an external monitor before going out of your way to get any of these items. If things show perfectly, its safe to assume the problem isn't your video card, but somewhere in your TPs lcd panel area... usually, its the inverter going bad that does this.

this one's a though one I think..

Few months ago, I bought a IBM thinkpad 600E laptop. I received it running under Windows XP and everything was working fine, even the sound. Right after that, I reformatted it into Windows 2k for performance purpose (it's only a PII 450 Mhz!!) and I then loose the sound.. I didn't worry about that since this week 'cause I need the sound to work for a music purpose. I tried my headphones, I tried to change every possible option of my sound card or my speakers and nothing would help.. I thought the problem was Win2k... I then took it back to WinXP but I still have no sound! I tried every options, disabling/enabling the sound card and its drivers, I tried my headphones and nothing gives me a single bit of sound! I don't think my speakers are dead cause they were still working fine few times ago.. I searched for any driver update but IBM keep saying that I need to use the driver provided by Microsoft (the one which is included in WinXP)... Any idea?

Hi All, have a thinkpad 600e and the internal modem went bad so it was replaced witha new internal modem, I have gotten the modem and drivers installed but the modem comes up on com5 and will not work it's my understanding that it needs to be on a different port, maybe com 1 or com2, . any thoughts on why it loaded on com5 and any advice on how to get it onto a com port that will work. Have gone on thinkpad config and enabled the modem but as soon as you leave that screen it goes back to disble. Thanks....Terry
 

A:com port change 600e

have you uninstalled the old modem(s)

take the new one out. remove all modem stuff and try again

I have this laptop that I got quite awhile ago and it's a IBM Thinkpad 600E, and one day when I was turning it on, it said I had multiple errors. I tried re-booting it by turning it off and and holding down F1 and turning it back on. It worked, but as it was doing it's diagnostic, it said there was a problem with the memory. I turned it off and on, and it also brought up the error codes 00161 and 00163. I reset the date and time, the computer restarted I think, and brought up a window with a blinking " O > I ". I restarted it myself, and I'm guessing that the error code 161 was about the date/time, so instead of it saying error 00161 and 00163, it said 00173 and 00163. I'm not sure what those two codes are, and it would be very much obliged if someone can help me out. Thanks.

Hello -

My roommate's IBM Thinkpad 600E has come to a grinding halt - come to find out that he's been surfing all over the place without any virus or spyware protection ever since we got DSL. We didn't realize how innocent he was about computers, and he's getting a painful education now. It's so full of god know what that it will no longer completely boot up, not even in safe mode. I don't even want to try and clean it up, even if it did manage to boot up eventually. We figured that the best thing to do would be to just wipe the whole thing out, reformat it, and reinstalll XP (and a virus scanner).

The problem is that it won't boot to anything but the hard drive, and I can't get to the BIOS to change the boot sequence. I've looked around the internet, checked IBM"S website and the folks that now support their laptops, and I've tried pressing every key and combination of keys while starting up that I've been told to press, and all the other ones I can think of, as well. Nothing works. Either it ignores me completely and continues to try and boot to the hard drive, or else occasionally I get a little icon that looks like it might be a padlock, but no other message telling me to enter a password or anything. Is that what it means, or does it just mean that I've been pressing too many buttons and it's locking me out? I couuldn't find any info about this icon, or much else that was useful,... Read more

Many Thanks
 

A:Upgrade a Thinkpad 600e

It would most certainly improve things a lot (unless you are running DOS).

You may need to do a BIOS upgrade to make the thing recognise 256MB.

Hi, hopefully someone might know how to fix this:

Recently I bought a 256 SDRAM SODIMM pc100 non ecc stick, for my IBM 600e laptop. I took out the old sticks, one was a 32 MB stick and the other was a 64 MB stick, and installed the new chip. When I turned the computer on it was just a black screen, and there is no response from the computer at all. I then flashed the BIOS with the newest version, which apparently has support for a 256 chip, and reinstalled the 256 RAM. The same exact thing happened. Does anyone know how to install a 256 stick successfully, or have any ideas on how to upgrade the memory?

Thanks for your help!

What's the type and model number on the sticker on the bottom of the laptop?

Usually 2645-4BX or something like that.

ibm thinkpad 600e will not turn on. I think we connected it correctly to an a/c adapter, but nothing happened. Does the battery need to be good even if it is plugged in?
 

A:thinkpad 600e wont turn on

Well my laptop boots up with no battery on the a/c adapter.Is this a/c adapter the correct one for the unit or is it something you rigged up.If you rigged it up I hope you paid particular attention to the polarity of the pin.
