Question about IBM Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have an IBM THINKPAD R51 type 2887 and it runs slow. I have a 40 gig hard drive and 1gb of ram (which I bought and made a monster difference at fist) but now when download anything or install and unistall programs it runs so slow. Sometimes I have to unlplug it w/o the battery because it's so annoying. I know the registry gets full but I have 20 free GB ( 56% after using disk deragmenter every day ( and it seems like this laptop should FLY! But now sometimes the net runs superslow and the operating system XP seems to run slow. I'm sick of doing a destructive restore every 5 months cuz thats what I have been having to do. Not owning office 07 I have to keep borrowing cd's for it. Also one time I turned off the system restore feature and then restarted the laptop then turned it back on and I gained 2gb of hard disk space suddenly,. If anyone has knowledge of how I can put office 07 a disk. I do a disk defrag every day and it's set up with no recycle bin (nothing even goes there, it's off) and my disk cleanup is clean always even after being online for 72 hours. Any help would be appreciated

As yur computer is running slow their are possible reasons that may be your system infected by viruses for which we need to do system scan and we have also to chec what all programmes are installed in your computer or second reason may be osme hardware faulty.

For installation of office it can be installed from www.microsoft.com and you can either install tril or download full version other then that you can also install open office from sun microystem from www.openoffice.org

Ibm r51 2887 wireless driver


The same model ThinkPad can have different types of network, video and audio drivers and unless you know exactly which one is installed in your ThinkPad, you need to download all the drivers and install each driver until you find the right driver. When you download the drivers, write down the device driver and it's file name so you have a record of which driver you are installing and which directory the unzipped files are located on your hard drive. Go to the IBM/Lenovo WEB site - support/download page and download the latest Windows device drivers for your model computer, Use this link: - http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/product.do?template=%2Fproductselection%2Flandingpages%2FbrowseByProductLandingPage.vm&sitestyle=lenovo&brandind=10&validate=true

Hi I have an IBM thinkpad R51, type 2887 model AVG and I need to purchase and replace Harddrive ? What type of Harddrive do I need ?


if your gonna replace your hard drive anyway,just take the old one out and tap it forcefully,better still take it apart and clean it of dust etc and gently micro-lubricate its moving parts see if you can get it working again--replace with same spec model--consult manufacturers site/manual for correct item.--good luck!
