It has the xp pro product key on the bottom and has xp pro installed but its now the thinkpad installation and there are a lot of things on it in device manager that are showing inactive ?? He had no recovery disks is there any way I can get the original recovery cd's for it to bring it back??

Nice to find a place full of IBM enthusiasts. been reading through as we have around 17 or 18 T30's we use in the Motor trade. We lost our recovery CD's so hoping RBS can help out here. Wish I found this place sooner as its a resourse for every problem we are likely to encounter.


Thank Ya Kindly

Dunno if I need recovery disk set. I DO know I need some kind of recovery....

When turing the unit on, the fan starts up but keeps running, no transition to HD, and it runs on and on until I kill it. I removed the memory and it gives the 1-3-3-1 beep. That's as far as I have gotten replacing, exchanging, singling the sticks (there are 2) don't produce any result other than fan starts up but keeps running, etc.

I am afraid I caused all of this when I opened the panel right over (or under, depending) the sticks, and the reason I did that was because I felt that aluminum plate was very hot to the touch. And it seemed the laptop runs hot, maybe turning itself off (?) when I try to run it with external USB keyboard and mouse. Did I somehow ground (meaning: destroy) the sticks? If so, will the recovery disks help? If not, what now?

Thanks for any help you may provide,
MR2

This thread is ONLY for T30 recovery disks.
If you are quick, contact the seller in this thread: viewtopic.php?f=11&t=103814
He/She has T41 recovery disks.

I was given 2 T30s both in disrepair and managed to get one working after cannibalizing parts from the other. Unfortunately I don't think I was given the original drive or it was wiped before I got it.

I have Windows 7 installed and tracked many of the drivers down. But after reading here I'd like to try the original software.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks - but it has an XP Pro COA and I would like to restore it to that factory default. I could install it manually but if there is an easier way I would like to try that first!
