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

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.
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.
