  • meaghanelain Dec 01, 2008

    MY IBM think pad keeps telling me it can't find any wireless servers and to make sure I "have the wireless switch" turned on. Where is the wireless switch though? I didn't change any settings - my laptop started showing this out of no where.

    I'm sure it's some setting I need to change but can't find anything that will do the trick. I've looked under "Advanced settings" under Internet connection, but nothing.

    Help!

    I figured out, that in my BIOS Wireless adaptor is DISABLED. And BIOS don't allow me to turn it ON. Don't know what to do... Have any ideas? 
    Thank you!

    U'r MORON.  The problem is not IN MY HANDS! XP simply dont see any Wireless adaptors...

    What kind of problem? Is it less connectivity? Wireless is unreliable and may get frequently disconnected.

    Less range? Use a better router or adapter. Try moving closer to the router.

Right click your task bar icon for wireless then click wireless connections if you have a connection showing high light then click connect
if none show then click refresh network list you may need to do this a few times once one shows high light and click connect

SOURCE: IBM ThinkPad G40 2388 No power

Start by checking the power supply with an ohm meter to see if it's working, or has the proper output. If the supply is good, then the problem is most likely going to be with the power management system on the motherboard, and the motherboard will have to be replaced. This could be a serious problem, so If it's not the power supply, I would recommend that you take it to a service shop in your area to have the exact problem area tracked down. A power management system failure is common in these machines, but there are a few other replaceable board components that can cause this as well.

My thinkpad g40 has the following on my screen "resource conflict pci net controller in slot 01 bus :02,device:02,function:00 " how do i correct this?


Dear Friend,

This type of message is commonly associated with wireless or PCI card failures. I strongly suggest you to either update your BIOS (if you can) or disable this devises.

Another way to isolate the problem is to get an external wireless card or PCI network card.

Wireless


Since you have the slot for the wireless card, you can purchase an internal card for the machine, try Price Watch or Ebay. On the processor, the G40 came out with Pentium 4 2.0ghz, 2.4ghz, 2.6ghz, and 3.0ghz. any of these will work as long as they were designed for IBM Thinkpad. I buy most of the processors for my shop off Ebay. I would check there. If you do buy from Ebay, be sure that the processor came from an IBM machine.

Ibm g40


Does your machine have a built in wireless card or a slot for a card? If not, you can purchese a universal wireless card for you machine at Walmart, Bestbuy, or on line at pricewatch.com. The cards come in either a bus port or usb port style, either will work, and they range in price from $30 to $125. The $30 to $50 range will work just fine for you.
