Question about IBM ThinkPad R40 2722 Notebook

Restart from hibernation

I have an R40 IBM Thinkpad PC with MS XP Professional Operating System.
The problem occurs when restarting from Hibernation mode. The following message appears on the screen:

Problem Ejecting Matshita UJDA740 DVD/CDRW
The device ‘ Matshita UJDA740 DVD/CDRW’ cannot be stopped because a program is still accessing it.

I then click on OK. Within about 2 to 3 minutes the machine self-hibernates. Upon restart the same thing occurs. It keeps on self-hibernating every time I restart.

The machine does work properly if I turn off the PC and do a complete reboot.

    Could not get past Step 1. When I clicked on "Safely Remove Hardware Icon the following message appeared:
    Problem ejecting Matshita UJDA740 DVD/CDRW
    The device "Matshita UJDA740 DVD/CDRW cannot be stopped because a program is accessing it.

    Unfortunately it did not work. I followed all the steps you recommended and still get the same result. By the way the same thing happens when starting up from StandBy. Many thanks for any other suggestions you may have.

Go to the system tray and click once on the "Safely Remove Hardware Icon"
click on your dvd/cdrw to stop it. when it says it's safe, go ahead and remove the drive.

reboot

reinstall the drive and windows should automatically pick it up

also. go to --

Start -> Control Panel -> Power Options ->
Under Power Schemes set all the options under the ac power header to NEVER

unless you want it to hibernate, go to the hibernation tab and uncheck the enable hibernation box

go to the Advanced tab and under power buttons --

Close Lid = StandBy
Press Power Button = Shut Off
Press Sleep Button = StandBy

Oh and while you are there make sure the
always show icon in taskbar is checked, so you can keep an eye on your power

click apply and click ok and reboot

let me know if this works for ya

    go ahead and follow the instructions, this time just skipping the first step
    just pop your drive out and reboot and start from there.

    and please let me know if this worked and mark the thread as FixYa :)

Had to reformat my windows xp professional on my thinkpad 40 2722. Works beautifully- a clean restart but lost my drivers and cannot get to internet. How do I get the needed drivers back?


Hi there,


If your laptop comes with a driver CD, you can use that to install the needed drivers. If not, you might need to use another computer and go to IBM Thinkpad support website and download the drivers from there. Save it on a USB thumb drive and use that to install the drivers to your Thinkpad.


Go here for the IBM Support Website


Hope this helps.

My computer won't wake up after going into


HI, i suggest you unplugged your system from the AC outlet and leave for sometime to rest, power it on back after few minutes and put on your system.

Doing this will help wake your system up from hibernation.

I wish you best of luck.

press and hold the power button down for about 5 secs. The computer will shut down. Restart it and right click on the desktop, go to properties then look for screensaver tab , then choose power options, click on hibernation tab at the top and uncheck enable hibernation. Or choose stanby options and choose a longer time before the computer goes to sleep.

Try pressing the power button next time. That will help you to turn on from an Hibernation.
Alternative you can disable this feature (not recommended for laptops)
  1. Open Control Panel.
    • On the Windows XP default Start menu, click Control Panel.
    • On the Windows XP classic Start menu, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel.

  2. In Control Panel, open Power Options.
    • If the computer is in Category View, click Performance and Maintenance, and then click Power Options.
    • If the computer is in Classic View, double-click the Power Options icon.

  3. In the Power Options Properties dialog box, click the Hibernate tab.
  4. On the Hibernate tab, clear the Enable hibernatation check box, click Apply, and then click OK.

ThinkPad T60 Desktop Not Restored After Hibernation/Standby


there is something that runs most of the interface between the user and the computer it is called explorer.exe to get the task manager open, you can try pressing CTRL+Shift+Delete another alternative is to do an OS reinstallation.

To get explorer.exe

1) press Ctrl+Alt+Delete; in unsuccessful try Ctrl+****+Delete
2) if task manager opens click on 'New Task..." (if task manager does not open, consider reinstalling your OS or simply don't go into standby/hibernate)
3) Once you get the New Task dialog box, type explorer.exe or C:/Windows/explorer.exe

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
