T60 wont boot ~ I NEED HELP ~

H'ok.. So I was going to try to fix my friends T60 but I'm worried this is kinda over my head..


She came to me and said the OS was currupt and asked me to install a new os onto her laptop..


I was only able to install anything when the built in Wireless card was disabled..

Whenever you enable the wireless card, windows wont boot (all versions) nor will Windows installer boot..

Linux will boot though with the wireless card enabled.. but wont see a wireless network.

I've checked the hard drive and the ram.. both are ok.


I tried swapping the wireless card, but that didn't fix the problem..

Could it be the motherboard?

Could you try doing a system update using an ethernet cable?  What OS are you using?
