It appears not all R50e laptops come with wireless interface built in. This means if your model is one of those then you will have to buy a wirelss adapter and put it in the USB port or use a PCI wireless adapter if it has a mini PCI slot.

Check this site.

You will need to confirm what model type your laptop is and download the specific user manual from this site to see if there is a wireless connection. You could also refer to this service manual if it helps in identifying the actual wireless interface for your model.

R50e laptop


It's probably your power jack inside your laptop. It's attached to your motherboard, it's not making a connection with the cable when you plug it in.

Check out this link

Or you might have to call a local repair shop.

Unlock password bios


Hi,

To unlock the bios password on your laptop, you will need to remove the cmos battery on your laptop for some minutes and insert back, the cmos battery is located on the motherboard of your laptop, once the cmos battery is removed from the motherboard for some minutes, the bios password will be reset, and fix the problem.

Take care.

IBM Thinkpad has many colors and will not load


You may have a loose video connection ot faulty video card.
Connect an external monitor to the video port of the laptop, power up the monitor first then the laptop, the video data will automatically to the external monitor if the video card is OK. If it works, then backup your music, photos and video etc.
Then power down and reseat the video cable/connector.
If the you do not get a video image on the monitor then the video card or the video RAM is faulty. The video RAM uses part of the main RAM module, reseat the RAM module/s, if this doesn't work get it tested at your friendly computer shop. If the RAM tests OK then the video card is faulty and is part of the motherboard, it cannot be fixed and a replacement motherboard may not be a cost effective solution.
In this case, remove the hard disk and put it into an USB hard disk adapter case and connect it to a working computer's USB port and you will be able to copy/backup your files to CD/DVD disks. You can also use this as an external USB hard drive for backups and file transfer, don't forget to remove the Windows folders from this drive as it is no longer needed and it will free up disk space.

Total failure of IBM Thinkpad R50 after connecting sony clie PDA


Hi,
Your colleagues are correct, the problem with laptops is that the motherboard and powersupply are integrated,
if there is a seperate powerboard, usually the mains inlet runs through the mainboard itself to get to it. As it,s located under the touchpad. ( On certain Models )
What you,ve actually done is put an input current into your motherboard via the USB.
These are designed to output 5v pos And 5v negative. + 2 x Data transfer/signal in/out.
If you take this in for repair, you,ll be looking at £75+ Or $150+ Depending where you are. Just to Be Looked At.
For them to possibly charge you an additional £200+ Or $400 for a new motherboard.
Sorry for the Bad-News but i,d advise looking into buying a replacement laptop, and put it down to experience.

Mike @ Compurepair.
