If you have just installed a clean version of XP onto your IBM T43, it will not have the IBM drivers or software needed to enable your wireless, Ethernet, or even the Fn buttons.

http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?lndocid=MIGR-58597

The Above website is a link to IBM's Driver list. I would reccommend downloading, and then extracting, and running the extracted files, (which are usually stored in C:\DRIVERS
WIN... )

Audio v5.12.01.5300
Bluetooth v5.1.0.4700
Modem (If you want it) v7.34.00.00
CMD Ultra DMA IDE Driver (If you have a Dock station) v1.52
ThinkVantage Active Protection System (I would definitly add this) v1.70
TrackPoint only systems v4.69
UltraNav Driver v11.1.21.2
UltraNav Utility v2.11
Broadcom NetXtreme/NetLink Fast/Gigabit Ethernet v10.35.0.0
For your WIFI driver there are three, find out which one yours is then install one of the three drivers, sorry i cant get more specific on that.
Power Manager v1.64
ACPI Power Management v1.55
ThinkVantage Access Connections v5.33
ThinkVantage Fingerprint software v5.8.4.5476
Easyeject utility v2.38
Hotkey utility v2.23.0000
Keyboard Customizer v1.3.53.0
Scroll Lock Indicator v1.07
ATI Radeon/FireGL (Video Card Drivers and Software) v8.593.100.7-090929a
Presentation Director v2.57

Out of these the ones that make the FN button work are Presentation Directer, THEN Hot-key Utility. they must be installed in that order for ANY of the FN buttons to work.

Once they are installed if you install ThinkVantage Access Connections, it will work with the wifi and ethernet as well as the FN button.

Hope this helps

Press the "Fn" and "F5" key to turn your Bluetooth and wireless radios on.

PS: "Windows 2008"??? - Are you running server software on your T43? - you might want to check that...

SOURCE: IBM THINKPAD T43. I can find the switch for my ibm thinkpad T43

Are you sure you have a wire card installed? If so, then try this:

  1. Right-click the My Computer icon and select Properties.
  2. Click the Hardware tab and press the Device Manager button. The network card should appear under Network Adapters.
    Note: If the card has a exclamation mark over a yellow background, then this is an indication that the card is experiencing a problem. Go to Driver download step 5.
  1. Verify that the radio is enabled.
    It is possible to disable the transmitter of the wireless card without Device Manager showing any problems.
    Note: Follow the instructions provided to enable wireless card.
    • Most wireless cards will put an icon in the system tray (the line of icons in the lower right corner of your screen). Right click this icon and it may have a menu option to enable/turn on the wireless radio.
    • Some systems come with a Wireless Radio switch to disable the wireless radios. The wireless radio switch is usually located on the front side of the machine. If you are having difficulties with wireless connections, make sure the Wireless Radio switch is set in the On position.
      wirelessswitch.gif

  2. Check for association to an Access Point.
    If you double-click the previously mentioned system tray icon, the configuration utility of the wireless card will appear. This utility will be able to show the status of the wireless card, showing what channel the card is using and what signal strength is being received. It may be difficult to maintain a connection if signal strength is low due to either interference or distance. For example, interference can be caused by 2.4GHz cordless phones, other Access Points in the area, and physical structures such as load bearing walls or metal partitions.
    Note:
    The utility can be used to configure the wireless card settings, but if using Windows XP Zero Configuration or Access Connections, you will need to use those programs to actually configure the wireless card as they will overwrite the setting of the utility.

Will not start up


hi , Reuben

I would suggest you try safe mode.
Safe mode is a troubleshooting option for Windows that starts your computer in a limited state. Only the basic files and drivers necessary to run Windows are started. The words "Safe Mode" appear in the corners of the display to identify which Windows mode you are using. If an existing problem does not reappear when you start in safe mode, you can eliminate the default settings and basic device drivers as possible causes.
If you don't know the cause of the problem, you can use the process of elimination to help you find the problem. Try starting all of the programs you commonly use, including the programs in your Startup folder, one by one, to see if a program might be the cause of the problem.
Follow the steps to boot the computer in safe mode with networking:
1. Restart your computer if it is powered on.
2. Tap the F8 key after your computer initially powers on.
3. Once you see the Advanced Boot Options menu you can stop tapping.
4. Use the up/down arrow keys to highlight your selection.
5. Select Safe Mode with Networking and press Enter.
6. You should see drivers loading, and then please wait.
7. You should then be at the Welcome Screen.
8. Logon to your computer using an account with Administrator privileges.

How do i turn off the HDD


What happens when entering the sleep mode is the drives will be turned off and the present state will be kept in memory until awakened. While the system is active the power scheme will prevent the drives from idling down after so many minutes with the never turn off setting applied.

With the turn off drives after the default 20minutes of inactivity that doesn't mean all drives turn off at the exact same time. I've never come across any reference for changing the power plan option for individual drives. But I can point you at the guide for the power plan settings with one instruction on drive settings to apply prior to entering the sleep mode.



hope that helps if not let someone here know.

How can i download falsh player on to 2011 imac desk top threw Linux ubentu browser ?


Ok, there are a number of issues with you spelling so I am going to assume you meant the Ubuntu OS. If that is the case the Flash Player install is done by the following:

If you are using the more modern versions of Ubuntu, simply install the Adobe Flash application from Ubuntu Software Centre.

If you are using a version that does not support the Software Centre, try:

Go to the Adobe website.
  • Click on "Download the Latest Player," and choose ".deb for Ubuntu" from the drop down list.
  • Choose "Save File" from the pop up window.
  • Open a terminal window.
    The terminal window will be found under Applications -> Utilities.
  • Change to the directory where your downloaded file was saved.
    cd Download
  • Install the libcurl3 library: sudo apt-get install libcurl3
  • Install the Flash Player: sudo dpkg --install install_flash_player_<version>_linux.deb
    Replace <version> with the latest version number.
  • Restart Firefox.
  • Check that Flash Player was installed.

    Removing bluetooth chip


    Without knowing what the desktop computer motherboard is, I\'d only be guessing as to location of Wi-Fi chipset.
    However even if I knew the motherboard manufacturer name, and model number; the point is Moot.

    A) You remove that Wi-Fi chip, and kiss the motherboard goodbye.
    It\'s designed into the circuitry of the motherboard.

    Isn\'t going to be jumper wires taking it\'s place, and making connections to circuit traces on the motherboard.

    B) Do you have a wireless router?
    Dunno.
    Do you have a wireless connection set up?
    No.

    You can use just a LAN connection. (Hard wired)

    C) Suggest if having a Bluetooth option on your motherboard is not an option then use a different motherboard that doesn\'t have that option.
