Question about IBM ThinkPad R51 Notebook

1 Answer

Will not allow any camera to be added

I have a thinkpad R51 I can not get it to accept any kind of camera I have tried web cams I have tried regular digital cameras at least 15 different ones all with factory disks and every time it will take me all the way through set up and then say the drivers are bad error. I have tried the internet update for drivers with each one and it fails every time. I think the thing is just cursed and will not accept a camera. I even tried adding more memory nothing seems to work.

I would like to format my IBM thinkpad R51. kindly let me know which function key I need to use for it to be formatted and I can get it restored back to factory settings.


HI,
Wait for the ThinkPad logo to appear on the screen a few seconds after the boot process begins. Press the "F1" key on your keyboard and you will get access to bios.

Key board problem


Press FN (next to CTRL) and NmLk (probably above F11) simultaneously. This should return your keyboard to normal.
If that doesn't work, try SHIFT+NmLk and that may work as well.

R51 Thinkpad Monitor Problems


To answer your question Morgan, yes you can get a new LCD display for your laptop! Typically people sell the entire assembly which is the screen, backlight, display cable. It then fits into the thin plastic casing around your current screen. They are actually pretty easy to replace the problem is you oftentimes have to remove the computers keyboard, and other pieces of plastic on the top that might be in the way. Also there are usually anchoring screws on the bottom that have to be removed as well. There should be one little teeny tiny cable you have to pull out that connects to the mainboard, and then reconnect with the new display. Try this website if you want to order a new one their price is only $120 (which is great for a new LCD screen).

Disable boot up password in R51


You could open up the R51 and remove the CMOS battery. This would reset the password.

Here is a link I found that allows one to hack the BIOS password:

Or try this fixya thread:
