Having problems with your IBM ThinkPad R32 2658 Notebook ?

Video display blinks or system freezes

\015 I reinstalled Windows XP on my laptop and DL'd the latest drivers from IBM for everything to bring it back up to the most recent drivers after I had a hard drive problem. I replaced the drive with an 80 GB I had in a USB porta-drive which works without any problems. I had problems with the installation as the computer would not reboot after loading the files. It said several times that it was going to reboot but would not so I had to shut it down. I was finally able to load Windows back in and everything was fine for a day or so but I did not have time to reload the new drivers. The next day when I tried to boot up, the display started blinking and then coming up with odd characters all over the screen as well as white dots. The next time I tried to boot up it worked fine but then the screen froze after bringing up the Windows start screen and I could not log in. I tried an F8 start with "most recent settings" and the same thing happened. The next time it booted up, I got into the system and was able to bring up the desk top when it froze again before I could load the drivers. When the initial screens for boot up or setup comes up again, sometimes it will come up and at other times not. When the screen is blanked out and nothing comes up, I notice the caps lock light comes on. When I start to get a display before the blinking and freezing starts, it's off. I have not been able to get back into the system to try to reinstall XP or to load the new drivers which I have on another USB flash drive...I've tried to get it to boot to the CD but everything freezes again and the screen either comes up with random characters and freezes or stays blank. Any ideas?\015
