Having problems with your IBM ThinkPad T20 2647 Notebook ?

Hello I have a T20 thinkpad. When I turn it on it goes to the desktop but does not give me any icons or anything that I can work with. I tried to start it in safe mode and it looks like it is about to work then just says safemode but wont go beyond that. Can someone help me? PS it is a different computer than the one I am using to ask. Jose


Answers :

Did you do any change on the T20 since the last boot?

Please let me know via email.


When you boot up look for boot without network.

This will free up some resource.


If able to get to the desktop screen.

DO

start
run
type cmd
c:
dir

check for the size free.

Compare to the total size of the drive.

====

from c:

type in

chkdsk c: /f /r


Pick Y for start chkdsk on next reboot.


Reboot laptop.


This will take long time.


Look for any error(s).


Chkdsk should take care of any disk error.


Please let me know how it turns out.


Hello Jose' -- I can assist you. right click on your mouse or mousepad and then click on "personalize". What you are looking for is task bar and start menu and then "customize notification icons". Once there you can set your computer up any way you like. good luck.
