Having problems with your IBM ThinkPad T43 Notebook ?
Can't get to load operating programs and can't shut it down to reboot.
\015 My T43 working fine - left running while did and errand. Loaded an instructional dvd to view - wouldn't run it. I took the dvd out. It rebooted the screen of the world ( the geographic, time zone, blue one ) but wouldn't reload the operating sytem, - no icons on the screen at all. I can move the curser but can't get it to kick in - Can't turn it off either. For now it is as described above running off my plugged in battery pack. Yikes!!! any help would be much appreciated.\015
Disconnect all power to shut it off and try running it in safe mode and see if that works, let me know what happens with this.
Press F8 while rebooting and select start at "last known good configuration" or "safe mode"
