I have replaced the Fan for IBM R61e but the laptop is not starting .There is nothing on the idsplay just couple of indicators .


Does it make any sound?
Does something show up on the screen?
Are you absolutely sure that the fan is OK and spinning after you start it up?
Did you plug everything correctly back? For example didn't you forget to connect back your power up button part of keyboard?

You can try to remove the keyboard and other unnecessary parts like CD-ROM. Try to start it without keyboard and the powerbutton board. But be aware this may damage your computer if you do it improperrly.

Hi Andrea I have just connected a hard drive to my Laptop and it isn't recogized.. can you help. I'm running on Windows XP Thanks Ian


Not Andrea, just wanted to offer;

1) Installed a new larger Harddrive for the laptop?
There is a special procedure for this. Depends on what laptop we're discussing here.
A new harddrive will have no operating system on it. BIOS needs to recognize the harddrive.

{When you press the Power On button of your laptop, the first chipset to receive power is the BIOS chipset. BIOS looks to see what devices are installed, does a Ram Memory count, turns the Processor on, and hands the laptop over to the Operating System. WinXP is one example of an O/S }

Some laptops have a procedure where basic info is stored until the new harddrive is installed. Then the basic info is transferred to the new harddrive.

In any case I suggest going into the BIOS Setup, and on the main page see if the Harddrive is recognized.
It will be listed.
If it isn't listed you have to manually set the harddrive's parameters. (Type them in)
The Cylinders, Heads, and Sectors.

When BIOS recognizes the harddrive, then you can install Windows XP off of the Restoration Disk, (Repair. Also know as Non-Destructive Installation), or a fresh, new genuine copy.

2) If this is a reference to an external harddrive, there may be an electronic problem with the unit.
The main problem that happens with an external harddrive, is the small circuit board inside goes bad.

This small circuit board is an Interface Board.
It connects to the Harddrive inside the case of the external harddrive, and allows a USB cable to be used.

If this is found to be the problem simply remove the harddrive inside, and install it into an economical external enclosure.

Awaiting further information so I know what we are dealing with.

A) Is this a reference to a new harddrive being installed into the laptop?
If so, laptop manufacturer name, and Model Number.
(Bottom of laptop in a white Service Tag, or sticker)

B) Is this a reference to an extermal harddrive?
Manufacturer name, and Model Number

Want destructive restore help for lenovo Z570,have win 7 ultimate(oem) installed and dont have any restore point or disks


Welcome to Fixya

You can actually restore the computer back to the factory state by pressing the One key button. this button is located right beside or on top of the power button. the computer should be turned off mode then push the button to trigger the restore partition of the computer. This will happen if you did not repartition the harddrive. If you repartition the harddrive then the restore partition will be deleted.

Thank you for using Fixya!

IM a xp user i nid a audio device on high definition audio bus and modem device on high definition audio bus for lenovo R61e latop~ ~


The same model ThinkPadcan have different types of network, video and audio drivers and unless youknow exactly which one is installed in your ThinkPad, you need to download allthe drivers and install each driver until you find the right driver. When you download thedrivers, write down the device driver and it's file name so you have a recordof which driver you are installing and which directory the unzipped files arelocated on your hard drive. Go to the IBM/Lenovo WEBsite - support/download page and download the latest Windows device drivers foryour model computer, Use this link: - http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/product.do?template=%2Fproductselection%2Flandingpages%2FbrowseByProductLandingPage.vm&sitestyle=lenovo&brandind=10&validate=true

My 802.11 WAN adapter seems to have "disappeared"


Hello,

Here is a link to IBM's website for trouble shooting the wireless adapter

http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?lndocid=MIGR-50402

From the above link:

Some systems come with a Wireless Radio switch to disable the wireless radios. The wireless radio switch is usually located on the front side of the machine. If you are having difficulties with wireless connections, make sure the Wireless Radio switch is set in the On position.


I hope this helps.

Best of luck!!

Info req'd on user part of linova r61e thinkpad


Some Lenovo and ThinkPad computers have a LED light that is located on the top edge of the screen and can shine a light on the keyboard.
To switch on this LED light, press the Fn key plus the PgUp key (This key maybe different on some model laptops).
