Access built in owners manual.


If you just want to disable the wireless lan, you can go to the control panel, network connections, and right-click on the wireless connection icon. Click on "Disable". Re-enable it by going to the same place and click on "Enable".
In order for the "Access IBM" button to work you have to have the software installed. You can tell if it's installed by looking on the start menu under programs

IBM ThinkPad R40 Intel Centrino Upgrade to Intel Core 2 Duo?


According to system specs your system is not compatible with the Core 2 Duo or Centrino Core 2 Duo. To upgrade to those chips you would need to replace the motherboard with one capable of running those chips. If you decided to do that you would almost surely need new RAM as newer boards use newer technology. By the time you did this the upgrade would not be cost effective. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.

You need to access a computer that is connected to the Internet, (try going to a friend or work mate or nternet cafe etc.)

Copy the downloaded files and install them on your computer.
