Question about IBM Computers & Internet
Hi i have been having this problem since i took it apart. i have reasembled it corectly and now i have this problem please help
Do a "Restore" on your computer.
It will take your computer back to an eariler time when it was working good.
If that does not work then I will suggest that you reinstall the operating system.
I will include a link to a youtube video that will explain the process on a lenovo recovery...all lenovos do the same as shown
Please take time to rate me

I have tried to fix it, but have to admit that I have found my superier.

There is a common problem with this machine; the mother board flexes and the processor mount partly separates from the motherboad. You tube posts a couple of solutions but they involve taking the laptop apart and applying heat from a heat gun to resolder the mount; it is not a solution for the faint hearted. Thinkpad/Lenovo might consider reparing the unit as it is basically a desgn/production defect but don't hold your breath.

Sometimes there are keys are your laptop that adjust your settings.
If you know which keys you can hit the fn key simultaneously.
If your not sure go on line and you should be able to find a site that will tell you how to adjust your screen.
In search type your laptop model then type display settings

The T42 has a bulit-in wireless network adapter and a LAN network card. T42s most likely have an Intel wireless card or less likely a Cisco wireless card.
Your wireless network adapter may have been disabled in the BIOS
The drivers for the wireless network controller has not been installed.
To check the network adapter go to the Control Panel, Click on System, click on Hardware Tab then Device Manager. Then scroll down and click on Network adapters. If you don't see your network controller or you see a yellow ? against Other devices for the Network controller. Then either it has been disabled and/or the driver was not installed.
To get the driver for the network controller you need to dowload it from the IBM/Lenovo WEB site their support/download page from a computer that has Internet access. Make sure you select your laptop model and the driver for your Windows version.
Install the driver and you then need to configure the wireless adapter to suit your wireless router settings before you can access the Internet.

Are you using IBM SW or Windows to manage the wireless? Occassionally, the IBM SW has issues with certain model routers and encyrption types.
You can also try unchecking the "Allow Computer to turn this device off to save power" in the adapter properties and
Adjusting the power on the wireless device to the max. By default IBM sets it in the middle to conserve power.
