I removed it from the loading dock, and it went black with this little pic of a lock and a 1 above something that looked like a cup to the left of the lock. When i start it, it says hit the Access IBM button, but nothing happens. I cant download anything cause it wont start up all the way. HELP

You need to download the driver available at the website for this software.

http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/MIGR-55125.html go to this link.

the driver is available there.

The first application file is 1with41us.exe .....this is the file that you have to download.
The second 1with41us.txt(just below the first one ) is a guideline.

you can follow those to get your Access IBM button work.

I hope it helps...if any query contact me at vishalyuvraj@yahoo.com

Bye...

What is the ThinkPad button for on my IBM ThinkPad ?


There are some special applications provided by IBM that can help you return your computer to a usable state in case anything goes wrong. These applications can be accessed by pressing the ThinkPad button right after turning your computer on.

I power the device on and get the 'IBM ThinkPad' logo screen. Nothing happens after that


Since you are getting the IBM Thinkpad Logo it is confirmed that you have no hardware error. All you need to do is restore the operating system. most of the IBM laptop has an inbuilt recovery option. just press the access IBM/ Thinkvantage (blue button) immediately after pressing the power button and follow the screen..

hope this helps.

My laptop will not boot - Operating System Not Found, cannot enter BIOS system - nothing at all. When I try to access the BIOS, the key keeps beeping. It is a Type 2373. Thank You -- IMCND


How are you attempting to enter the setup (BIOS)? Here are the steps:
Press the blue Access IBM button when the message "To interrupt normal startup, press the blue Access IBM button" is displayed to enter the ThinkVantage Productivity Center, then select Start setup utility to open the BIOS Setup Utility.

Access IBM Button does nothing-- need it to start my comp up


Hi,
The Access IBM button is F11. This lets you boot the recovery partition. It is possible the previous owner removed the recovery partition to regain the hard disk space it uses.

If the recovery partition is gone, you can order the recovery disks from IBM/Lenovo.

Also, make sure you have the BIOS boot sequence in the correct order.. the primary boot device should be the cd-rom for installing the Vista disk. It is usually F8 on startup to load the BIOS.
Make sure the Vista disk is in the drive when you startup the install.

Here's a link to all the Thinkpad R50e drivers you'll need to get it fully working in Vista:
http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/MIGR-55042.html

If you have just formatted, have you let the Vista disk finish the installation? Just a thought..

Good Luck!

Well, Clay, sounds like you are in a bit of a fix! Let's see what we can do about it, OK?

To start with, I have a couple of things for you to do so that we can get a little better handle on just what's happening.

First, let's remove the battery, all of the memory and the hard drive. Then replace one of the memory modules and see if it doesn't try to come up. Whether or not it tries to come up, go ahead and replace the hard drive and the other memory module and try to bring it up again.

This exercise may be all that is needed to get it fixed. If not, then continue on.

Secondly, I need you to try to power it on while you press down firmly (really press down) in the area just towards the front of the space bar and just to the left of the touch pad assembly. Hold it down while it tries to go through the entire power up sequence.

Then let me know what happened.
