Default Need Help With Ibm Laptop!

IBM R31 Laptop Reformat gone bad

Ok well its almost about to be the 4th ibm ive seen die this year. Its a IBM R31 Laptop that im trying to fix for a friend. The problem that it had was first of it wasnt windows xp, which is what it was sold with, it had 2000 but the ibm recovery was 98. Anyway it would go to boot and get a blue screen saying something bout checksum. So i took the hd out and stuck it into pc and reformated it. Whats weird is the recovery ibm program was still on and it wouldnt install windows from laptop. Finally i fdisked it and now it doesnt show up and comes up on the laptop as bad nfts or something like that. Any ideas. Im trying to install windows xp.
