IBM R40 LCD problem

I Have an IBM R40 laptop not sure what type and when I boot it up everything is great. MY problem comes when I start to use the laptop. Every time I put my hands on the computer for any reason, (pick it up, use trackball, type) vertical lines appear on the LCD. If I move my hands or let go the lines will disappear. It does not happen every time I touch the computer but it is happening more and more.

Connect an external monitor to your lapotp. If the problem persists on both display in the same time it means you have a defective video card. If the video signal is not affected on the external monitor it means your screen/inverter is defective.
Expensive to fix it in both situations. Have it checked by a professional.

Dont have adm pasword for IBM R40 cant log in


If you're talking about a boot up password for the laptop, you have to open the laptop up and take out then put back in the circular battery. This should reset such settings. You'll want to also make sure the actual battery is taken out and laptop is unplugged when doing this.

If you're talking about the Admin account on your windows installation, you can reinstall Windows making sure not to pick options that do not destroy any data. Alternatively you can use a 3rd party app that you boot to.

Ophcrack:

If you download the Live CD for your platform it will use a legal method for 'guessing' the admin password.

If you are unable to boot into safe mode by tapping F8 during the IBM splash screen then you will need a windows Install disc to boot off of and fix your boot command. If you don't have a disc then try to borrow a friends, you need to boot off that disc do that you can get to the recovery console and fix your boot menu.

No Sound On My IBM R40


What I ask myself is, If sound and wireless are not working - what else might not be ok until you find out later, when you have documents and applications installed?

I would reset the R40 to factory settings right away. Hopefully that person hasn't removed the hidden partition...
You can check that by going into your Device Manager (Right-click "My Computer->Manage->Disk Management) and see if you see a Fat32 partition usually called "ServiceV001".

Restart your notebook and hit the blue button at the ThinkPad splash screen. A wizzard will lead you through the process.

Rescue and recovery will restore your laptop to factory state. It has an image of their default installation with all the software, settings, and drivers.

After you're done, you have to update the drivers to the newest versions. Look in you start menu and you will see an entry called either "IBM" or "ThinkPad" with a sub-menu that contains the software to update your computer.

If you want to manually update your drivers, go here, fill out the form and follow the prompts. (You will find the necessary information on the sticker on the bottom of your laptop).
It will get you to the right page.

If you have any questions, come back here and leave a comment. I am happy to help!

Good luck!

IBM R40


sounds like there is a problem in the hard drive. Go to google and search for Hirens Boot CD it is about $10 but its well worth it. Boot from this CD and run the Check Disc Utility(chkdsk) and some of the virus tools, this might fix the problem, otherwise it sounds like a bad CPU or faulty RAM may be causing this broblem

Intermitent problem IBM-R40


If I understand you correctly you turned off your laptop and since then have not been about to boot up normally, occasionally getting a blue screen. Typically the blue screen also has some type of error message, can you tell us what that is? You indicate that booting from the CD drive is not possible, is that because you don?t have a working drive? In any case this sounds like a problem with system files or possible a device driver and a CD drive is almost certainly going to be necessary. Let us know the answers to this questions and any other pertinent history relating to this issue and we?ll see if we can help.
