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.

I have IBM R50e Celeron laptop, i want know whether it has wireless lan facility. I could see wireless sign on it.


If you see the wireless LED light glowing, the defenitely it will have the wireless facility. There might be a harware and a software switch for IBM Laptops. Hardware switch is on the left front panel of the Laptop. To find the software control of Wireless, Press Fn and F5 which will open up a Black window and you can switch ON or OFF the wireless.
Hope this helps. Good Luck ~SmokinJoe~

Hi. I recently dropped my laptop off my bed and onto the floor. Ever since, it boots up turns on but only produces a black screen. After reading similar posts and answers to said posts I've tried every...


If you do have a chance to extend it to a second monitor. To see if it is still working.
Maybe the Backlight of the screen is not working.

Don't plug it in when its booting..... do it before its booting...so it will find the correct driver....

Hi, Here you can find all the drivers for your computer: http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/MIGR-55042.html
Please note that usually network card does not requires drivers for Ethernet port - Your network might eventually be defective if all drivers installed does not fix the issue.

Ibm t20 no LCD backlight


while the T20 is on and manifesting the dim display....

1. try to slowly close the lid (but not totally closing it) and then pulling it back to its original position slowly. Tell me if the light goes back.

if by doing that action the backlight lights up, you are most likely faced with a Flex cable problem. You might need to buy this from ebay. (dim display problem in T20 series is very common these days due to wear and tear of the flex cable)

2. Also try to use a pen to turn on and off the limit switch that triggers the backlight. This is located above the keyboard below the lcd. See what happens.

My Screen Is Black When I turn the Laptop On


When you say ?it turns on fine? I?m assuming that the power and hard drive LEDs turn on. If that is the case it could be your LCD backlight giving you problems. With the computer on and the monitor power LED green shine a flashlight in the lower left hand corner of your screen. Look for the ?Start? button, if your backlight is not working you?ll see a faint ?start? button if you look closely. This is usually an economically repairable problem but not for the typical home user. Let us know if you have any other questions and please don?t forget to rate this posting.
