Question about IBM ThinkPad T41 Notebook

1 Answer

I use a lap top, IBM ThinkPad, that has been in my docking station for a long time and it works fine in the docking station with the external key board and screen. I recently took it out of the docking station to use it via wireless and could not get around the micro soft id and password log on. I noticed that on the laptop key board the number 0 it always typed in a dash. Also, on the letters U, I O, P, J, K and L it always typed in the character associated with those letters on the keyboard and not the letter I want to use. Therefore, when I typed in my password it would not accept and I cannot use my laptop out of the docking station. Its not a control or shift problem but I remember this problem before and there was a method to change back to the letters and not the characters associated on those particular keys.

NUMBER LOCK
You have press the NumLk key (number lock) and this changes the right hand keys to a number pad.
Press the NumLk key (also doubles as the ScrLk key to toggle the Number lock). it is near the F12 function key. When the NumLk has been enabled a LED light is turn on to indicate this function has been selected. Press the NumLk key again to turn off the Number Lock.

IBM ThinkPad T40, when connected to docking station the laptop will randomly stop working with USB connected items like mouse, keyboard, printer all connected to USB ports on docking station.


Try a power adapter with more amperage. When you connect a dock, the 3 amp adapter that comes with IBM laptops will not have enough power for lots of add-ons. You'll need the 4 amp adapter.

I was not given the key to unlock the Thinkpad docking station from the machine. Aside from going all the way back to where I got it and beating the living hell out of the ********* clerk, what can I do?


The easiest answer would be to call a locksmith. They should be able to either make a knew key for you, or at least get the thing unlocked. We use to use these docks at work and the keys got lost often enough that they stopped locking them down. IBM might also be able to get you a replacement. My suggestion would be to call IBM first, if no luck there call a locksmith or attempt to pick it yourself if you've got the skills for that.

Best of luck to you mate!

T-60 will not seat properly in 2504 docking station.


I have the same docking station and I am typing this on my T60 right now. I have noticed that sometimes it is very hard to dock my laptop and other times it just slides on instantly. This seems to be an issue with poor design. If you look a the dock connector under you laptop you will notice there is a strip of plastic in the middle of two rows of connectors. The docking station connector must be perfectly aligned to successfully connect. I would inspect it for any damages, but honestly I think it is just an issue of patients, precision and a little bit of luck. If you can not identify any damage I would just slowly try to line it up and keep trying until it clicks. Remember to never force it and once it lines up it will slide in with very little force.

Missing Docking Station key


You will have to take the docking station apart until you can see the locking mechanism. Once you can see the mechanism, you should be able to get a screwdriver ron it and release it. Make sure that it releases, don't force it, and most of all, be patient.
