Question about IBM ThinkPad T30 2366 Notebook
Cisco aironet i350 wifi card was working fine, original card that was with machine. no new installs. had to remove to get machine to run(fully boot) also, if i solve with bios revision available out there, will i lose hard drive data? is there any easier way? tried to put it back in(reinstall), still error
Updating the BIOS firmware will not lose any data on your hard disk.
If the BIOS update is not installed properly or malfunctions then the T30 may stop working unless you can roll back the BIOS update.

SOURCE: system will not boot up.
Thinkpads have readable "FRU" (Field Replaceable Unit) numbers storedon various components, and at boot up time, for those internal devices(fortunately excluding drive, memory, etc) if they do not "respondcorrectly" saying they are a valid IBM part, they will give this 1802error.
It could be that the referenced device has failed, and thus seems to be there but not responding; it could need reseating;
The Lenovo site should be able to help you with a service guide to remove the card and see if that works.
there is also a "hack" to change the bios of machine - I think "prior to T43" to delete the 1802 check:
Be aware any "hack" can disable the machine completely!
If it does turn out to be the mini PCI network card, you can tryremoving it and going with USB (did 600s' HAVE usb? I can't remembermine any more) or try to find a "genuine" IBM replacement on eBay orITxchange.com

SOURCE: for ibm thinkpad t41,Error 1802
You may have installed the wrong driver.
Go to System Restore and restore the T41 to a date before you installed the Network card driver.
Then go to the Thinkpad/Lenovo WEB site to download the Network drivers for the T41.
The same model ThinkPadcan have different types of network, video and audio drivers and unless youknow exactly which one is installed in your ThinkPad, you need to download allthe drivers and install each driver until you find the right driver. When you download thedrivers, write down the device driver and it's file name so you have a recordof which driver you are installing and which directory the unzipped files arelocated on your hard drive. Go to the IBM/Lenovo WEBsite - support/download page and download the latest Windows device drivers foryour model computer, Use this link: - http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/product.do?template=%2Fproductselection%2Flandingpages%2FbrowseByProductLandingPage.vm&sitestyle=lenovo&brandind=10&validate=true You can download thevarious drivers and then you click on and run the various driver files, theywill then unzip and expand into a sub folder on C:\drivers Then install thevarious drivers from this folder (run the set-up file).
