R52 onscreen display issues

Hi, I have a couple of issue with my R52. The battery charger icon ( the green battery ) is no longer visible. I used to see the volume increase / decrease icons whenever I press the volume keys. Fn+F7 used to show me the projector settings. This doesnt come up too. I dont see any display on my monitor when i press those buttons now.. Can someone please help ? Thanks a ton in advance.

What ya need to do is enable the "system utilities" this is software that administrates all ya settings like those ya talking about.. below is a link for ya drivers etc. perhaps it is still in Control Panel and it;s just been disabled somehow.. else DL and install them. www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/MIGR-58931.html

Hi,
Remove the battery and connect the laptop with the charger and it should operate normally. However, in the absence of battery you won't be able to get backup.

My IBM R52 laptop displays some vertical thin lines (red,green,blue,white,etc). I noticed this problem arises basically IBM R52 and R80 models. Some of my friends too are suffering from this problem and...


This sounds similar to a fault i had with an old dell laptop... very thin vertical lines running the length of the screen. Unfortunately it was an LCD problem, the screen was kaput replacing the screen solved the problem.

To test if it is an LCD fault, simply plug your laptop into an external monitor... if you get no lines on external monitor then its a faulty LCD screen.

Is that solution genuine enough for you?

How do I turn on the wireless switch on an IBM Think Pad R52?


Hi,

Not all R52's have the bluetooth/wireless option. If yours has it, there will be a light for it located somewhere around the keyboard or the bottom of the screen.
To toggle the wireless on press Fn+F5 key combo, the corresponding led should illuminate.
If it doesn't turn on then check in Device Manager. If there any "unknown devices?" in device manager it might be worth getting these downloaded and running:
ThinkPad Power Management driver, OnScreen Display utility and Wireless device drivers.
