Hello i re installed my windows 7 on my IBM R52 laptop and the unknown device, and video controller...


I can tell you 7 is def not supported in the R52 as its the Pentium M with 2GB max ram, but generally vista drivers are compatible with 7 (although I had a heck of a time finding compatible drivers for my g/f Dell Inspiron when I ripped Vista off and went back to XP on it). Try Windows Update first, but if its not downloading drivers for those devices your going to have to go through the components and try and find Win7/Vista compatible drivers for your Thinkpad:

This is Lenovo's page on the R52, some of the drivers say Vista:

This is an excerpt form the service manual for this exact model of notebooks:

If you forgot your power-on password, you must take your computer to a Lenovo authorized servicer or a marketing representative to have the password canceled. If you forgot your hard disk password, Lenovo authorized servicer can not reset your password or recover data from the hard disk.

Hope this will answer your question.

Ibm thinkpad R52 laptop no powering on, adapter is ok.


There could be a problem with the battery. A fast check to determine whether you have a problem with the power adapter, power cord or the laptop's battery is to turn off the laptop, remove the battery, connect the power adapter, turn on the laptop & see if it works.
If the laptop works directly from the power adapter with the battery removed, then the power adapter is good. In this case we can suspect that the battery is defective & needs to be replaced.

If this did not work, try also disassembling the laptop & make sure that all main components are seated properly. Also make sure that all ribbon cables interconnecting the various components of the laptop are tightly connected.

Laptop screen displays vertical lines of various colours


Have you tried to connect your laptop to external monitor?
If you get normal picture on external monitor, then you need to replace LCD screen, but if you get same picture on external screen, then unfortunately you will need new motherboard, because graphics card is integrated to motherboard.

Re: power on + bios password


IBM uses a security chip on the motherboard that burns the password into it when a bios password is enabled. The only solution to getting around a bios password on an IBM is to replace the bios security chip or the motherboard. I've wrestled with this before, and believe me when I say it's a whole lot easier to replace the board. Do your best to remember!!!!!!!!
