Having problems with your IBM ThinkPad i1200 1161 Notebook ?

My Laptop Won't Continue Booting

\015 Hi. I have this old laptop from my late Dad. It's IBM iSeries 1200 Model 1161-92J with 128MB RAM only. I've been using it for quite sometime but just today, when I encountered this problem. It won't continue booting. Normally, when I use this a 500GB external HDD is already connected. It takes a while to finish booting but today is not the normal day as expected. When it starts booting, there is this blue screen that says "STOP......00x..." I can't read it because it change the screen fast. It will continue to the Starting up windows with the logo then it will stop and reset again. Same thing will display the 2nd time around. Just recently, I upgraded my Avast Antivirus and everytime I connect a USB, it will detect the autorun.inf & Recyler but I just ignore it because its not a virus right? Can you please help me with this problem? As much as I want to buy a new laptop, I can't afford it right now...\015
