You need to download the driver from lenovo's website for the ethernet port, windows xp does not install this automatically. When you download the driver and there may be several for your model and sometimes I just have to try them until one works, and run it, it will acutally unpack it to some subdirectory of C:\DRIVERS and then you have to run setup from there, or if no setup file there, you might have to do the install hardware choice under control panel and choose have disk rather than search, and point to that directory

Need password for entering windows. there is error 0271: check time and date setting. my friend said that the motherboard error, must be reset or change... what should i do???


I have the same problem with a desktop.

To bypass the error, You might need to set the correct date and time every time you power up your laptop. Date and clock setting can be set via CMOS configuration.

Internet Connection


A few years ago, i too had an IBM thinkpad and encountered some issues as well when connecting to the internet.

The IBM 2647 does not have a built in wireless card, meaning that you need to purchase one from your local electronics store to use wireless internet. The software provided with these CD's can often be quite helpful and will help you set up the connection.

The 2647 only supports an analog modem connection, and the modem in the area you are attempting to connect via ethernet may use a digital modem. Adapters are available although they are quite pricey (ranging from $200 and up.)


Hope this helps.

IBM Thinkpad T20 Type 2647


I currently own 3 Thinkpad T-20 Laptops. They all have a 700 mhz processor in them, and so will yours, more than enough to run windows xp, in fact, I am running Windows XP Profession on one of them. The PC100 is the type of memory it uses, not the processor speed. i recently installed a 120 gb drive in one of them so you will have no problem installing a 20 or 40 gb drive, or larger.
