Having problems with your IBM ThinkPad R31 2656 Notebook ?

IBM thinkpad wont work

\015 I purchased two ibm thinkpad r31, and both of them crashed around the same time, one of them is long gone, but the other one i still have, the problem with it is that i will turn on, and it gets to the login window, but after i log in it wont work. i tried working in safe mode, but the same thing. i just wont work, i just stays at a blue screen, and i have also recieved the bsod screen (death screen). i cant start the system restore, because i dont think there is one. and wen i go to system settings by pressing f1 wen i turn it on, system restore (f11) is greyed out and i cant access it. right now it wont even start up it turns on, but once it gets to windows xp professional, it just restarts and the same thing all over. is there a way to fix this problem, i cant access anything, such as documents or programs, task manager in safe mode really doesnt respond either. idk wat to do please help\015
