Having problems with your IBM ThinkPad G40 2388 Notebook ?

System will not boot. It goes through normal re boot but it is stuck in a loop and comes back to the same re boot screen

\015 I attempted to restore my ThinkPad G40 to an earlier period and upon executing the process it is stuck with a Runtime Error message. Is there any solution to this problem. I do not have the original system disks as this is an older system. Thanks Manny I tried to re boot the system and a screen comes and it says re boot in 3 or 4 different modes. Safe mode, safe mode w/internet, normal mode, ect. I tried normal mode and it just keeps comming back to the same page.\015

Answers :
