    We recently picked up a IBM Think pad 600E laptop from a friend, and we reformated the disk and put in Windows ME. Everything went good, it worked just fine. Looked in the System folder to see if I had any conflicts, and our Intel 82371AB/EB PCI Bus Master IDE Controller had a conflict with something else. We went through the hardware troubleshooter, and did like they said. They said that we needed to change it so that "both PCI controlers were sharing". So we changed it and rebooted like it said to do, and now :mad: when it reboots, it gives us a black screen with a picture of a floppy disk and squares with F1-F12 in them. We have tried to push every single button, and it does not work.

    We tried to put the boot disk for the laptop in and boot from that, but it won't even recognize the CD rom. :confused: :confused:

    Also has an unknown device in the system. That is another problem, will fix when we get it back up.
