How I can reset my baios at r50e thinkpad plz help me

Is your BIOS. password protected? If so you will need to remove the CMOS battery for about 5 min. plug it back in and you should be fine. Let me know if you need more help. Here is a link for the locations of parts for your PC and some user info.

one possible cause would be the inverter. Much better to send it to the technical person or shop for deeper diagnosed on the laptop. Just a thought hope it helps thanks.

I have a IBM thinkpad R50e for the last 6 years. It is not reading any CD or DVD, but says the device is working properly. Pl. help me.

I think it has failed.
Go to Control Panel...System... Device Manager... and locate CD or DVD Roms and UNINSTALL it. Then Reboot and it will automatically locate the CD / DVD Rom. You will have to acknowledge several screens wit naext and tes ect.

If it does not work, it's really easy to buy and replace.

Good luck

The screen has gone dim,is the computer worth fixing? This happens when I switch on and stays like that, i have pressed all F buttons but no luck


can you have a look over to the bottom right of your laptop to see if there are 2 lights on the up and down arrow of the key board

sometimes it could be on the top row

when you find them please press the FN blue key bottom left as well as the up arrow key

this may help you

many thanks

My screen has gone dim on my ibm thinkpad r50e, when trying to boot just kept goin in circles wouldnt load windows, so have restored factory defaults! but screen still dim? can you help please

if the screen is dim and the images still display it means that the it's probably the CCFL tube or the inverter (located in lcd panel) it will need to be replaced.

Screen light has gone dim

Its either going to be a bad lcd or the inverter that controls the voltage going to the lcd is bad.
