Question about IBM ThinkPad T60 Notebook

1 Answer

Ibm t60 will not boot after ibm updates

I have downloaded the ibm bios updates through the t60 Thinkvantage button. They downloaded, and looked like they installed. The machine said that it would need to restart and to make sure that the power and battery were not disconnected.

The machine shut down, but will now not start up again.

Can anyone help.

Cheers, AL.

The problem is sort of solved. I phoned the IBM Support centre; they said that the mother board was either broken or faulty. Fortunately the laptop is still under waranty and so an engineer will come and fix it. I must say the IBM suport centre was very efficient and quick.

There was no mention from them though that it was the bios update that may have caused the problem.

I'll update when the laptop is working.

Thanks.

Does it actually have a wireless network adapter? Check the network adapter settings. Does it show both LAN and wireless? If it does you may need to use one of the Function keys to launch the interface to turn on the wireless.

How to remove a bios password from hp 6720s


Why can't people put a problem in the right catagory?
Generally, you can remove the Bios backup battery or use the jumper on the motherboard to reset the bios completely.
Google "reset bios" to get an idea of how to do it, or do the same in Youtube for a video. Lots of them are out there.

How do I get the battery out of my acer laptop


Your Model of Aspire has a different battery release method, see attached pic on how to do it. This is a pic from your User Manual, you can download it from here Download Acer Aspire E1 572

. I suspect that the information you have been given regarding battery removal and passwords refers to removing the cmos battery as in a PC in the hope that it will clear Bios activated passwords.

HOW TO ENABLE BLUETOOTH IN THIS NOTEPAD ?


The Acer Aspire is a high-performance laptop that includes a fast processor, widescreen display and an internal wireless card. In addition to these premium features, certain models also include one-touch Bluetooth access. If you have an Acer, enabling the Bluetooth is very easy and will only take a few seconds.

1.Turn on your computer and wait for Windows to fully boot. Then log in as an administrator. You will not be able to use Bluetooth under a non-administrator account.

2.Press the button with the Bluetooth symbol on the left side of the computer. This will launch the Bluetooth utility. From here you can sync and manage Bluetooth peripherals.

3.Press the Bluetooth button again to disable Bluetooth. This will disable all connections, but the utility will save your settings so the same devices will sync with the computer again when Bluetooth is re-enabled.

I hope you may find it very helpful.

How do i reset my computer to an earlier date?


Most computers have a RTC or "real time clock" in the BIOS. BIOS (or "Basic Input Output System") controls how data gets into and out from the processor (via keyboard, disk, etc.). Be careful making changes. The BIOS is normally only accessable when the computer is powered on or reset, and then only while performing the POST (or "Power On Self Test"). At this time your screen may display text describing memory, drives, controllers, etc. Some machine have a "silent boot" enabled which displays a manufacturer's graphic or logo instead of this data. It is during this time the the BIOS may be accessed. Depending on the manufacturer of your computer, a key (Delete, Escape, F1 or some other) or key combination (ALT + F1, ALT + S, or some other) will be needed. It is required to press the key or key combination prior to the Operating System loading message(s). This can be done be repeatedly pressing the key (or key combination) once every second (or two) during the POST. Holding the key(s) down the entire time - or pressing them too often will result in an error, and require starting over again.

Once the BIOS screen is presented, you will have to scroll the entire page(s) to find the clock. Most BIOS brands have more than just a single page of settings. Using the the up, down, left, right, PgUp, PgDn & Enter keys - navigate to the clock hours and minutes and adjust as needed. Make sure that you SAVE changes before exiting the BIOS screen. Upon exit, the computer will reboot with your settings.

Your Operating System may also provide a way for you to change the system time (and date) as well. Try clicking on the time / date to see if it will bring up a dialog box that allows you to make the change.

I hope this helps and good luck! If my answer was helpful, please rate it "4 thumbs up" Thanks!

How to install Anti virus on my desktop


Following the steps to install antivirus on you pc.

Compare antivirus software. Look at the features and benefits of each. Read reviews from authoritative editors from magazines such as "PC World," "Smart Computing" and "PC Magazine." Editors who write for these magazines typically test antivirus software as an unbiased outsider and write about both the good and bad sides of antivirus software. For example, the editors at "PC World" recommended Avira AntiVir, Avast Antivirus and Panda Cloud Antivirus in an August 2009 article. Visit the websites of each antivirus program to view screen shots and descriptions of how the program works. Make a final decision about which antivirus program you want to install.

Navigate to the website of the antivirus program you've chosen. Go to the "Downloads" section of the site if you're obtaining a free antivirus software. Click on the "Purchase" section or "Buy" button if you have chosen licensed software; pay for and complete the transaction. Click the "Download" button or link for the antivirus program. Save the file to your computer desktop or to a computer directory or folder which you can easily remember.

Find the antivirus program file you downloaded on your computer. Double-click the ".exe" file (which is an executable file that will install the antivirus program). Once you double-click the ".exe" file, the installation process will automatically begin. Click "Continue" or "Next" on each screen to complete the installation process. Enter your name and contact details if registration is required. Follow any other on-screen prompts to complete the antivirus program installation. Restart your computer if necessary.

Freezes on the warm boot screen MC9000


This can be for a number of reasons.

First thing would be to try and cold boot the device:-

Remove battery half way, hold power button and trigger, push battery in fully until click and then release power and trigger

If that fails next thing would be to try and re-flash the operating system. This is done by using an SD card and loading the latest operating files onto it. The SD card slot is located under the keypad. A cross head screwdriver is required to remove the keypad. Search on symbol software download site for the latest. The download also has a readme with detailed instructions. Once the files are on perform a cold boot.

Remove battery half way, hold power button and trigger, push battery in fully until click and then release power and trigger. Drop the terminal in a cradle so that it runs on external power.

Hope this helps.
