IBM Thinkpad r40 Touchpad problem... please help

Hello,
My computer recently crashed. It was restored back to its original state, as if it were new out of the box. However, this time around, the touchpad will not work. In the configuration wizard, the touchpad button is gray and I can not click on it to alter the settings. Any clue what I can do? I have tried downloading drivers for it, but that doesn't seem to be working. Maybe I am just doing something wrong....

Thanks

Trying to reformat my ibm think pad from safe mode any thoughts on how to do this with out the disc?


Hello.

Often, IBM systems have a partition that restores your system to its original state (factory restore / recovery).

Power off your Thinkpad. Power on and press the F11 key repeatedly when the Thinkpad begins to start up

You should be able to access the partition and the instructions should take you through the process of recover.

Hope this helps.

Need to restore facory settings on ibm r40


Hi, During the boot at the THINKPAD SCREEN press the Thinkvantage key ( Blue button ) it will launch rescue and recovery and allow you to reboot factory. This only works if you did not corrupted/deleted the rescue and recovery hidden partition on the HDD.
Otherwise you will need the rescue and recovery CD to proceed. IBM/Lenovo support should be able to provide you the CD.
thanks and have a nice day J-

Think pad r40/2681(driver prob.i.e. usb/wireless/sound etc.)


Go to the IBM/Lenovo WEB site - support/download page and download the latest Windows XP or Vista device drivers for your model laptop,
You need to use a computer that has Internet access to download and transfer the files to your computer.

IBM ThinkPad R40 No PowerUp


If the the ram is the problem of your system, there should be a power on light on the system. indicating that some of the component of the system is not working correctly. But since you mentioned there is no light, it is the possibility that the problem is the motherboard itself.

No Sound On My IBM R40


What I ask myself is, If sound and wireless are not working - what else might not be ok until you find out later, when you have documents and applications installed?

I would reset the R40 to factory settings right away. Hopefully that person hasn't removed the hidden partition...
You can check that by going into your Device Manager (Right-click "My Computer->Manage->Disk Management) and see if you see a Fat32 partition usually called "ServiceV001".

Restart your notebook and hit the blue button at the ThinkPad splash screen. A wizzard will lead you through the process.

Rescue and recovery will restore your laptop to factory state. It has an image of their default installation with all the software, settings, and drivers.

After you're done, you have to update the drivers to the newest versions. Look in you start menu and you will see an entry called either "IBM" or "ThinkPad" with a sub-menu that contains the software to update your computer.

If you want to manually update your drivers, go here, fill out the form and follow the prompts. (You will find the necessary information on the sticker on the bottom of your laptop).
It will get you to the right page.

If you have any questions, come back here and leave a comment. I am happy to help!

Good luck!

Here is a link to all the drivers and software you need to put back on your R40 laptop. The one you were asking about is a bit more than halfway down the page, listed under ACPI Power Management. http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?sitestyle=lenovo&lndocid=MIGR-46024
