SOURCE: where is the wireless button on t42 thinkpad

There's no hardware switch to activate and deactivate the wireless networking, but pressing Fn and F5 brings up a menu that allows you to turn Bluetooth on/off, WiFi on/off or both. It seems like IBM isn't satisfied with standard toggle buttons like other notebook manufacturers - even pressing the Fn and F7 buttons to switch between internal and external screens, brings up a menu with multiple display settings and resolutions.
Hope this helps,
David

You will have to make sure you have the s=drivers installed, even if you upgraded to XP, you will need to install the driver again.

Let me know I'll try and help you.

Number keys on think pad lock using openoffice.org


On Thinkpads laptops the keys on the right hand side double up as the number keypad. To switch on the Number lock key pad on - press and hold the Shift key and press the NumLk/ScrLk key, it is above the F11 key, the Num lock LED will also light up. Press these keys again to turn off the Numer Lock.

I have an IBM ThinkPad T42 and until a few minutes ago my touch pad was working with no problems. I installed a wireless mouse and that works fine. But I cannot control the cursor with the touch pad or red...


Try going to Start>Control Panel>Printer and other Hardware and look for mouse pad or something like that. I think the problem is that you can only use either the mouse pad or the mouse, can't use them both at the same time.

Ibm think pad


The IBM laptop has a key on the top row on the right side.It has two functions. One function is the scroll lock on the bottom of the key.The other function is the numbers lock which is at the top of the key.To unlock the right side of the keyboard when numbers are coming up instead of letters, hold down the shift key and the numbers lock key and that will unlock it.
