    I have a similar problem with the t40. While I was installing a wireless router it started making a series of 4 beeps and stopped working. Now when I try to start it, it keeps making a series od 4 beeps and it wont boot up.

Problem with ibm thinkpad r40


The IBM beep code error 1 long 2 short beeps means there is a video card fault. Reseat your RAM because the video card uses some of the RAM. If it doesn't work then the video chip on the motherboard is faulty, the only way to fix is to replace the motherboard - this may not be a cost effective solution.
Connecting an external monitor to the laptop won't work because the video card also sends data to the video port.

This could be a problem with the battery, try removing the battery and starting on the adapter only. If this doesn't work, then I'm afraid it is going to be a motherboard problem, most likely with the power management system, this is the most common area with this type of problem. You can take it in for diagnostics, but I'm afraid you're going to end up having to replace the motherboard in order to fix the problem.

Cmos password for ibm r40


You will have to remember it. IBM puts a security chip on the motherboard, the bios password is burned into this, and there is no way around it. There are a few places that will replace the chip, but they are very expensive. The only other way is to replace the motherboard. I've found that replacing the motherboard is cheaper than having the chip replaced, so, if possible, remember the password.
