Having problems with your IBM PC Laptops ?

Can't get the IBM Think Pad 600E to start.

\015 The screen shows off/on, but will not respond to any keys. Cannot get to the main menu.\015

Answers :

You need to get into the BIOS setup.

Turn off power to the computer. Wait about 30 seconds. Hold down the F1 key while you turn
on power and keep holding down that key until the setup screen comes up. Go to the network boot section and disable Network Boot. Save setting and restart. That should fix it.
