Change the bios battery.Remove the notebook battery and then you should see the bios battery.Maybe you should have to disassembly the complete pc because it is a little dificult without disassembly.

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.

T41 does not go past the splash screen on boot up! Help


Does the computer emit a series of long and short beeps when you first power up? if it does, download the HMM, the Hardware Maintenace Manual, from IBM/Lenovo's site for your model. Inside the HMM a beep code to possible cause table will give you more information.

And be sure your RAM cards are free of lint, etc., and properly seated in their bays.

The display screen has turned black


When you connected the external monitor thto the laptop did it display?

If so then you have to reset the monitor port. Hold down the function key and find the FKEY that shows a picture of a monitor. Press that until you get the laptop screen back.

Typical use is:
  • 1 press = external monitor
  • 2 presses = laptop and dual monitor
  • 3 presses = just the laptop screen

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.
