so i just got this used computer off ebay. IBM T40. It came with no operating system. So I installed WinXP Pro. Then I got all the drivers off the IBM site and started installing them off of a usb hard drive. I get to the bios flash update and I open it. It runs the program, it restarts running only this app. I choose: Update system program. It asks for my model number (2373-72U) which was already in the box. I click ok. It runs then my computer shuts off. I assume its done so I start up. Nothing happens. I can hear the drive spinning, but a black screen. I tried plugging into an external monitor and putting in the XP disk and starting up.
I knew nothing of BIOS before this and now I am trying to figure out if there is someway to fix this by reflashing the BIOS. Otherwise do I have to send my chip to someone to get it reflashed or get a new chip???
I am confused!
