Ibm thinkpad 2647 t22

When i try to watch any type of video on the net like youtube or movie trailers on yahoo they play fine at first but stop somewhere in the middle. This also happens when i try to download stuff like java and drivers. It also happens sometimes(but, not always)when going to a web page. When downloading drivers and stuff like that if i hit cancel and try it again it'll load a little more and so on till its complete. Any thoughts would be much appreciated.

    Thanks for trying to help. I ended up figuring out that it was the new wireless router. I hooked it up direct to the modem and it works perfect. That's what I get for not looking before I posted. sorry for the wasted time. thanks again.

Hi stephen,
Can you please mention your computer's RAM speed,Processor speed and your internet connection speed ??

  • vj123 Dec 24, 2007

    Most of this happens because of the internet connection speed check if it is less than 512kbps ,if so try to let the videos get fully buffered (Press the pause button for a while ) and then watch them.
    Hope this solves your problem

SOURCE: IBM ThinkPad T22 Series (Type 2647)

Since this is an older machine, the performance can't be boosted very much. The maximum performance you can get from this machine is 1ghz processor, with 512mb RAM. The 1ghz processor is the biggest processor that is compatible, and unfortunately, the system is base on a 100mhz frequency rating, so PC100 memory is the only compatible memory available. The maximum chip size in PC100 is 256mb, they just don't make them any bigger, so 2x256mb=512mb RAM. As far as the hard drive, it is an IDE drive, and you can get an IDE drive up to 120gb. These are very good and durable machines, just slow, so if you can deal with the lower level of performance, this machine will last years. Also, these are upgradeable to XP pro, but not Vista.

The type of drive is IDE and 2.5- Inch for all those models.

T20, T21, T22, T23 --- 2647 all use the same IDE type of drive.

These you can buy for example in ebay. Search for laptop hdd ide 2.5inch or similar.

ThinkPad T22 will not boot to windows

I've seen several T20 series with the same problem. A CRC error pertains to a chipset on the motherboard, and the only way I've found to fix a CRC error is to replace the motherboard.

Your limited with the T20 series, the biggest you can go is 1ghz. Try the Pentium M chip, make sure that it's the same mhz (frequency) that's in it now, the board frequency matches the processor frequency. (either a 100 mhz or 133 mhz, you can tell by what memory it uses PC100 or PC133)
