I have TWO IBM Thinkpads that simultaneously won't boot up. They say there's no op. sys. Amazing. One? OK. Two at the same time....
I think it may be mechanical. I put the HD in there and i just don';t think it's making the connection.
Fortunately, I got the data off both cds. Can I boot the computer from a usb cable connected to the HD? Can't I do that by just going to BIOS and changing the boot priority? How would I do that?
This doesn't solve the larger problem... but it's a start.
