You can also buy a usb wireless network card and install it with the driver it comes with. Trendnet ones work extremely well

I don't think the 380 has any internal network capability either wireless or wired.

IBM Thinkpad T30 2366 won't boot after the IBM Thinkpad screen

you can go to the BIOS setting? if you can,look for "Boot Device Priority" or something like that,it's usually placed on Advanced settings. Set the first boot device as your harddisk,save the settings and restart your computer
Please let me know if it's working or not

There is no setting to change, Thinkpad batteries work and charge automatically.

If the battery does not work, either the battery is faulty, or there is a fault in the battery charger contacts , inside the battery slot.

the most likely is a defective battery.

Go back to the shop and ask to test the battery on a different thinkpad, if battery works, then there is a bad contact in laptop battery slot. If it doesn't, then the seller must replace the battery.

IBM, lenovo ThinkPad 380Z

There are a ton of these machines out there. If you can't find just the ribbon Ebay, try a whole machine not working.I recently picked one up off Ebay for $28 with shipping just for parts. You can also try a local shop that sales or services used machines. If you can't locate one, you can give me a call, I believe that I have a few at my shop and we'll see if we can get you one. My shop number is 417-626-7727, I'm open tues - sat 10:00am till 6:00pm. I may need you to send the old one, if you have it, in order to make sure we get the right one.
