Usually, just holding down the powe button for several seconds will turn off computer, without damaging it. Also, you can remove power cord and battery.

These are the only commands that your IBM came with

If you're referring to the wireless card then you should activate it thru the Control Panel.

Blue function keys


Theres no function key lock, just the blue Fn button on the lower left corner of the keyboard.

If you cant get any of the function keys to work and the keyboard just thinks that you are pressing the standard button without pressing Fn, then this could be a fault with the contacts in the Fn key.

You might want to try

To help you troubleshoot your keyboard. I think you need to get a diagnostic utility running to be sure the key is faulty.

Need hard drive for ibm thinkpad r30 2656 not sure what kind or size


I think you will find support on Lenovo's web sites for older IBM Thinkpads. Have a web search on google or bing or whatever.
Search words: "Hard drive" "IBM Thinkpad"
Here is their homepage:

Turn off the Fn


Fn is shorthand for nothing however from what I have searched there doesnt appear to be a method to turn it off at present.

I would like you to try going into the control panel and choosing a normal Keyboard Layout if possible and seeing if that helps.

if not you may just have to hang in there a bit longer.

P.S.: What freetek is referring to is the Funtion Keys not the Fn key. The Fn key is only on notebooks mainly and found on certain keyboards. Like my USB Keyboard.
