Hi, Unfortunalty this is an hardware failure there is nothing you can do. If you are under warranty i suggest you to contact the reseller/manufacturer to get a replacement unit, it should be no problem at all this is a common issue on thinkpads, CD/DVD player, HDD and batteries are the weakiest part of your system. Ususally you will receive the part directly from IBM with a explanation about how to swap it, does not requires any technical skill to replace this part ! Thanks and have a nice day J -

What CD roms are compatible with the thinkpad R30?


From the specs it says a DVD-ROM/CD-RW combination drive which means you should be able to play music, dadat and DVD's. You should be able to burn cds also.

If you cannot play these or burn, make sure the disk is not scratched. Try a couple of other disks to make sure the cdrom is working correctly.

There is a delay when pressing the keys on my thinkpad T42


you haven't mentioned how other programs behave. i would suggest it is spyware slowing your computer down or one program that is using up to my cpu usage. hitting control-alt-delete will bring up your task manager... at the bottom it shows cpu and memory usage as a percent.... what are the amounts ?

IBM thinkpad x31 w/ultrabay 2000 blu-ray drive question


If the bay is a DVD drive Blue Ray will work as long as you have a newer DVD decoding software. There are some decoders or codecs at IBM's support site, such as WinVid. If the codecs at IBM do not work with Blue Ray, then try download.com and search for DVD playing software.

IBM Thinkpad..Wreless network is locked...


If you open the back to the Computer where the Battery is and REMOVE AND PLACE BACK in to the computer, that should do it, now this is the small Battery and not the Battery you charge for the Use of the Lap-Top let me know, and what OS are you operating with.
