Having problems with your IBM ThinkPad T23 2647 Notebook ?

I have laptop P-2 but have a problem not goes in the BIOS option and not boot from CD. I want to install window on my laptop but not boot


Answers :

Does it have floppy? If so, check out bootdisk.com you'll have to jump through a few hoops to get it working in it's present condition.

I'd probably go the bios update route first though, they've probably addressed this issue. Check ibm's support site here:

I have an ACER notebook Aspire 4920 and, I think, because an update I installed (prompted I may add by my laptop!) it is now not working. When I turn it on it goes into Startup Repair mode and then tells me it can't fix the problem automatically. It then gives me the options to either: System Restore (not actually an option as when I go on it it tells me I can't do this!), Windows Complete PC restore (which i can't do as have no Backup), Windows Memory restore, or command prompt. Please help as
