Thinkpad t20 dvd error

\015 I left my laptop on for about an hour or two while i was out of the house and when i came back home i noticed it was off. \302\240i tried turning it on and would not boot up. \302\240I then removed the ram turned it upside down and placed it in the oppisite port. \302\240i then put in a different hard drive. \302\240While the computer did boot up i got an error after the windows xp logo. \302\240it says everything is ok but there was a dvd error. \302\240i tried reloading windows on it but i cant get past the error screen. \302\240it give me the option to enter ibos or boot device setup but dose nothing when i try them. \302\240 any help would be greatly appericated.\302\240\015\012thanks -david\015

Answers :

Unfortunately only few people know your problems solution but I'm happy that i can help you.

Its simply a problem of setting HDD ( Hard Disk Drive ) type which can be changed using BIOS setup. I hope your laptop must have SATA but if its not working on current settings then please change it to another options available.

Surely, your system will get booted after that and furthermore you can re-install your windows again...
