Dear sir,

If you want to restore the thinkpad you must backup your files from windows drive(usually it is C: Drive) By pressing F11 you can restore the system. i.e windows goes back to default settings or manufacturer settings.(Settings when you purchased laptop) other software you installed after buying is also erased.so before doing restore backup your personal files. i think it solws your confusion.

good luck

Vga driver for ibm thinkpad R32 is not available


What Operating System are you running? This link( click here) to Lenovo/IBM's suport site does show video drivers available for all OS's, even older ones, but there is a note in the table on that page that says "Windows 98, Me, 2000 - Note: This AGP driver is required in addition to standard video drivers listed below for Windows 98, Me, and 2000."
Make sure you have downloaded and installed both VGA and AGP for your correct OS and see if that helps.

Your system may have been attacked by virus. Or your memory is too small for the operating system you are using. If you were not having the problem initially, try scanning the system for Virus with a powerful antivirus software such as Norton. You may also save your important files, format the harddisk and reinstal all software. Better still, your restore the system to a date before problem started if you are using windows vista.

DVD


Hi,
I don't mean to disagree with my associate, but DVD players for R series (or T, A, etc) can be found for less than 20.00 US (Ebay is a good example)
For that matter, we've got at least a dozen at our shop which we sell for 25.00
Installation is very simple as well, just pop the old drive out, put the new drive in.
Good luck
