Hello Edward,

Have you tried reseating your memory yet? If so try disconnecting your 10/100 card and turn it on. If this doesn’t work you can also try resetting your defaults.

If none of this works, it might be that you CMX has lost some of its boot configurations and needs to be reflashed or possibly fixed. Depends.

If you have any questions please contact me, we offer free technical support and carry new and used IBM Printers and Parts.

The screen on the printer is stuck in testing hardware mode and is beeping. We cannot print anything. What can we do?

you can first try power off and power on, if that doesn't work you can try disconnecting and interfaces you may have connected to the unit like a 10/100 card or twianax card. If you don't have any of them cards attached then you might have a bad logic bd, or have a logic bd that needs reflashing. Rory 708-597-4222

Do you get x64 printer drivers for an IBM 6400 print device, or is it best to just use the Generic Text driver ?

Load the drivers from IBM's web site. But.. depending what Windows ver. you are on go to install new hardware. Windows will find the drivers itself.

Ibm thinkpad ethernet port not working

In XP-Go to Start>Control Panel>Network Connections

Verify that the ethernet adaptor is not disabled. If it is, right click and then click enable.

If that doesn't work, try to right click and "repair connection"

If that doesn't work. Go to Start>Control Panel>System

Click on the Hardware tab, then on the Device Manager. Scroll until you find your network adaptor and make sure that there isn't a yellow or red symbol next to it. If there is, you need to reinstall the driver (check the IBM website for this).
