Question about IBM ThinkPad T21 Notebook
Hello i am reloading windows into a IBM thinkpad and I cant get a colon : to start the windows format in dos what keys do you press to type a colon on a thinkpad
There should be a colon on any standard keyboard, to the right of the "L" key.
If you still can't find it, hold down the ALT key, then type "0", "5", "8", then release the ALT key. This should put a colon wherever you are, even in a DOS command line.
