My IBM think pad has an error message of "stuck key 01" pls. help

If you've got a spare keyboard lying around give it a try and see if you get the same error message.
This means one or more of the keys on the keyboard is stuck down.
Look at the keys to see if one or more of the keys is lower than the others. If the key cannot be released or fixed then the keyboard needs to be replaced.
This problem can be caused by spill liquids on the keyboard.

If that doesn't work try resetting your BIOS back to its default settings.

Ibm thinkpad t30 how to get it to enter safe mode

Turn the computer off Turn the computer on Immediately hit F8 several times a second until a black and white menu appears, if you get the windows splash, you missed it. Start over Select which way you want windows to start in safe mode You will get a lot of white messages on a black screen You will then get a message that says proceed to safe mode or do a system restore to recover Proceed to safe mode.
If this answers your question, I'd appreciate 4 thumbs up as I do this for fun.

The home screen will not display instead a small box with a red x appears. what should i do in order to fix this problem

Hi ,
Turn the computer off and then turn the computer off and then tapp the F8 key repeatedly as soon as you release the power button after pressing it .Keep on tapping the key until you get a black screen that says advance boot menu option.Then select safe mode and hit the enter key ,wait till it takes you to the log on screen.Once you are there click on admininstrator and hit enter key ,check if you get the error or not .If u dont get the error go to start?run?type msconfig?hit enter?you get the system confuguration page?click on the the start up tab ?click disable all ?apply?click on the services tab? click disable all ?apply ?click on ok or close to exit from the page and then clik on restart when it prompts you to .Then the computer will take you to the normal mode check if you get the error or not if you dont then there is a program that is gone currupt and is causing the error to come up .To find what program has gone corrupt again go to the configuration page and then enable the startup programs restart the computer if u dont get the error go to the servoces tab uncheck one or more program restart and then check so this way you will have to isolate the program that is causing the error to come up and once you find the program just uncheck that particular program this will take care of the issue .
Please try this before you do the steps moentioned above ,turn the computer off and then tapp the F8 key repeatedly as soon as you release the power button after pressing it .Keep on tapping the key until you get a black screen that says advance boot menu option.Then select safe mode and hit the enter key ,wait till it takes you to the log on screen.Once you are there click on admininstrator and hit enter key.When it takes you to the desktop go to start?all programs ?accessories?system tools and then system restore.It will take time for the restore page to come up once its there click on the option that says restore my computer to an earlier time ?click next?select a date from tha calander and the select a date when you thin that the comuter was not generating the error message.The date that you are selecting has to be in bold then click on next next to exit from the wizard and the computer will restore itself the computer will restart and now if the restore is succesful you should not get the error message.
all the best

When I boot my IBM T30, I am getting this message "fan error."

Usually that message indicates the CPU fan has stopped spinning for some reason..Possibly needs to be replaced.

I get file not suported error on opening home folder

That's because you don't have software that recognizes the file type. Like XLS needs Windows Excel, or Open Office.

Thinkpad T30 Error 1802 from Verizon modem..Now won't boot past error message even without modem plugged in. Help

The 1802 error is ussually caused by an "unsupported" wireless card being installed. check out this site for a fix that has worked for me on a couple Thinkpads (including the one I'm writing this message on) to allow unsopported wifi cards to work.

Ibm think pad t30


To my knowledge, your laptop (IBM ThinkPad X30 2672) does not have any built-in WiFi. It's modes of connection are IrDA, modem, Ethernet, USP, Firewire aside from the regular serial & parallel. This would indicate that if you are wireless you either have a USB dongle or PCMCIA card. Please post back with your WiFi brand/model and your Operating System. Further, please post back likewise your WiFi AP/Router brand/model.

The message "a network cable is unplugged" pertains to the absence of a lan cable connected to your Ethernet port.

Good luck, kind regards and will await your second post.
