    Many thanks for your comments and suggestions Joed911 you have been very helpful. I must admit i did think about using an external pc card but after some more investigating on the net and reading many forums it seems HP have recalled these laptops and fixed them for nothing or at a reduced cost so i will continue with my corrispondence with HP at the moment and will keep you posted , thanks again

You can purchase a wireless adapter that plugs into the Expres card slot for about $40 . These can be purchased at your local computer store . Less expensive than a new motherboard, and they work quite well. As a matter of fact, I have my on-board wireless turned off and I use a Wireless Belkin adapter.
You can see the adapters here, but you should be able to find them locally:

I have a new notepad bought in UK. I cant connect to wireless only local connections


The problem could be -
You do not have a wireless card installed.
or
The wireless card drive was not installed.
Check Control Panel - Syatem - Hardware - Device Manager - Network Adapters. If you do not see a wireless card then your laptop does not have a wireless card installed. If you see a yellow ? against the wireless card then the wireless card driver was not installed.

Wireless connection wont work


To check if the wireless card is bad or OK.
Go to Control Panel - Network Connections - Is the wireless network connection listed and if so is there a red X on this connection?
If so, right click on the wireless and click Repair - this may fix your problem, it forces the wireless router to issue the wireless card with a new IP address.
If it doesn't fix the problem then go to Control Panel - System - Hardware tab - Device Manager - scroll down to Network Adapters and expand and check your wireless card, is it Working and Enabled?
If has a yellow ? against it or not working then reinstall the wireless card driver.
If the wireless card is built-in check the BIOS to see if the wireless card is enabled, if not enable the wireless card and repeat the above steps.
If this doesn't fix your problem then the wireless card is faulty and you need a new wireless card. You can get a PCMCIA wireless card to replace the faulty wireless card. If the wireless card is built-in then disable the faulty wireless card in the BIOS before you install the new wireless card.

Wireless button


The T30 laptops do not have a on/off button that turns the wireless card on.
Once the wireless card driver is installed the wireless card will detect any wireless router and access point within its range. You need to configure the wireless card to connect into the wireless router or access point eg. the encryption, SSID etc.
The Thinkpad laptops have different wireless LAN cards installed, when you install a wireless card driver and it doesn't work, then install a different model wireless card driver. Also make sure the XP or Vista version of the wireless driver matches the Windows version that is installed on the laptop.

Printer will not recognize new blk ink cartridge.


I think either the printer's scanner(or film as some call it) and/or the carriage is faulty. The signal cable that connects the carriage to the logic board could also be a suspect. Try replacing these items one after another and the culprit will be isolated. Good luck.

Think pad wireless card


You may try the following:

1) Plug the wireless card on another slot
2) Update the drivers of the wireless card

If those does not work, you may try to install the wireless card on another computer just to isolate if the problem is on the wireless card or on the slot of the computer
